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..."

haha, chuck, i bare with you! Don't listen to them!

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

i apologize for the cliché.
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:
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.
