Gluttony, Dante's Inferno by WoodardIllustration Gluttony, Dante's Inferno by WoodardIllustration
This is the 3rd level of Dante's Hell... The gluttons are punished here, lying in the filthy mixture of shadows and putrid muck. You can see, Cerebus, a canine monster cruel and uncouth with his three heads and red eyes. I tried to stay as true to the actual Dante story as possible. I also included a flying demon for added interest and because drawing them is just plain fun. I did this Illustration for an online competition. Wish me luck!

Amazing job. I am actually reading The divine comedy right now and have been thinking of illustrating pieces in it. You captured it very well

Brilliant. I really love your interpretation of this level; I always pictured it as a less structured, "rooting around in feces and putrescence" sort of thing, but this is a really nice construction. For whatever reason, it reminds me of a dark carnival, and I love that as a portrayal of Hell, particularly since carnivals are basically an excuse for us to indulge in some of our baser desires. Well done!

The perfect word to discribe this picture: Revolting. I think i lost my appetite.

This is a very good piece of art. I find this vertion very interesting. what gave you the idea of this dininghall?

In the original vertion wheren't the ones that ended up in gluttony punished with having icy rain and mud cover them or am i off the mark?
