    Well, this one certainly is a challenge. Easy to ruin with stereotypical ideas

    Maybe change the font colour on some parts of the EOW image, so you could do things like... read it.

    hell?
    for me hell is being surrounded for the rest of my life by
    stupid-annoying-boring-stuckinthe70s people. meaning - living in israel.
    so, do i draw badly clothed ugly idiots with word baloons,
    reading : "you paint with a COMPUTER? that`s cheating. it`s not REAL art. the computer do the work for ya..."
    mmm?...

    We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.

    yah, chuck, mate - if this was a challenge about a scene I also would know what to say about hell. But it's about environment.

    So pay no attention to those who say earth is a disk and just draw! Draw! XP

    well....
    i apologize for the cliché.
    i do.
    it`s just that after some amount of thinking and sketching ,
    i just somehow always ended up with "HELL the cliché"
    no matter how i started it.
    so i decided - screw it, no point fighting.

    and here`s my humble entry:

    E.O.W Round 9: Hell

    a det.
    E.O.W Round 9: Hell

    Hell
    The evidence indicates rather that hell is a place essentially of shame, one in which people will have no fellowship or discourse with God. Biblical pictures of flame are clearly metaphors, first because if taken literally they result in contradiction (how can there be flames, yet also darkness, as the Bible says?); second, because as metaphors they fit in with other metaphors (flames and thirst as the opposite of water, which is in Scripture a metaphor for God's Spirit) and also fit a literal experience of shame (think of being ashamed and your face burning.) Furthermore, other descriptions of hell, such as people weeping and grinding their teeth, match with expressions of shame in the ancient world, but not physical pain.

    THis one's taking me longer than I thought. Finding something original in something so steeped in specific context is forcing my hand a little. But I bet there'll at least be some last minute participation by a secretive few. You'll have some competition no doubt.

    Chuck,mate - I'm missing the correlation between your description and the illo. Your quote says no flame, but instead immense shame. I see lava, but that devil doesn't look ashamed to me. So I like both individually, but they aren't syncing up in my opinion.

    Due to the advice of helpful critiques I was motivated to push this one more to a finish. Thanks again.


    After ten thousand years of resentment and planning, the dark lord guides his young wife across a frozen lake of ash and through the gateway to his domain. There are demons petrified as gargoyles in the places they were standing at the end of the last Great War, and the glowing script is record of the couple's prophetic consumation and infernal conception of the Anti-christ: the event that will reignite the burning pits of hell.

    Critique

    Tis me, im new in here, well, in this forum; giving my critique to the posted backgrounds:

    Chuck,mate. - Awesome man, the lava looks so cool; besides, the columns that bears the ceiling's weight are kooler than anything, if only because one would think hell is ACTUALLY below our homes. Nice lava geisers in the back.

    Auden100 - This is so freakin awesome!! The colors look a little lazy; the runes are perfect. Technical question: Is the big beast over the gate a Demon Guard? or is it just another statue? The ceiling is cool, seems like another plane of existence.

    Thoras - Lazy, hmm? I can see that. I clarified the description a bit more to hopefully answer your question. Usually takes me a couple drafts to sort out the right wording. Thanks for the crit.

    My finished entry

    E.O.W Round 9: Hell

    This entry is an homage to the film High Plains Drifter. It's a Clint Eastwood film. The town begs for Eastwood's protection from bandits and the only way they'll get it is if they paint their ENTIRE town red and name it HELL.

    It's a great film, I highly recommend it.

    I hope this meets the requirements.

    -Rob

    great work everyone,

    E.O.W Round 9: Hell

    As the damned souls filed into their new home for the next eternity they were amazed to find that the stereotype about horns and the devil was in fact true. To the point where he had even used them as a major part of Hell's external decoration.

    Anyway, glad to see this thread picking up. Great entries so far, I'm especially liking chuck,mate's and romance's this time around.
