Jk, I'm not calling Satan Spice Dad...... yet. Anyways, this is my depiction of the 9th layer of hell from Dante's Divine Comedy. This layer shows traitors, the most notorious ones being Judas Iscariot, Brutus and Cassius that are being consumed for an eternity in Satan's mouths.
Caina, named after Cain, is a pocket of the 9th layer where people are frozen with their heads in the lake. So cold that it burns. Antenora's punished souls must cannibalize one another. Ptolomea's punished are frozen from the neck down with their eyes frozen so they can't cry. And last is Judecca, where they are completely frozen in an uncomfortable position beneath the ice. This book is honestly my favorite and i had such fun drawing this!
All that I'm working on! Doms Portrait, the body study, and "deliberate delusion". If you wanna contribute a picture of any part of your body do it!! I want to paint an upper back/neck and a round belly!!
