Canto I by Cybotics Canto I by Cybotics
Canto I (Inferno)
16 x 20 Oil on Canvas 2008

I'm not sure If I have it in me to paint all 31 Canto from Dante's Inferno. I guess we will see....
I'm also curious about which category this should go under, let me know if you have any suggestions, I'm sticking with Macabre and Horror now.

Brilliant inspiration. When they talk about the veltro, before they go into the Hell?
About category maybe Traditional-> paintings-> illustration-> storybook? :ashamed:

Yeah that might be a good solution. Maybe I'll use that category if I ever get around to making more.

Yes I'm partial to the Mark Musa translation, but the Dorthy Sayers version is good for its lyrical structure. Wish I could read Italian.

i currently reading John Ciardi's translation, and i really love how it turns out. the Italian version would be really rhyme, and even hard to understand though, i guess :XD:

Lovely. Perfect atmosphere and colours for Dantes "Divina Commedia". But I dont agree with "macabre and horror" Not at all !! you could put the serie under "Illustrations"

Yes I agree, Illustrations would be much more fitting! Thank you for the feedback.
