Golden gates of Hell by priteeboy Golden gates of Hell by priteeboy
My entry to the ~galaxyclub's "Heaven and Hell" wallpaper pack, Of which is now seen here [link]

Normally I would have a massive description of the concept involved, especially after doing something that took so long to make, but the concept here is as old as the human race itself and I think the picture tells it all anyway, basically, the never ending struggle between good and evil, with the physical world - and everyone on it being caught in between. Hopefully I made both halfs of equal significance, just in different ways :)

All done in Photoshop alone, no 3D or fractal used at all this time and drawn with a mouse too. Some cloud-photo's formed the raw "base" for the background, but I manipulated the hell out of e'm since I wanted it to have a bit more of an "illustrated" look...such a theme just looks better when presented that way

This has been used for a CD cover already, and a poster, and a book cover too. So it's no longer for sale, and if you bought and used it you would have a cover that other people have seen before already, so it will lack originality and potentially confuse some buyers.

Don't mind the heat, it's just the sixth circle of hell. Yeah, we get about 10,000 souls a day, and we're running low on flaming tombs. Damn, it sucks working in hell :P

10'000 a day still seems awfully small :paranoid:

Yeah, not much of a grand number. Heresy isn't much of a tourist attraction anymore. DAMN YOU, TREACHERY!!!

If it's hot in the south and cold in the north does that mean that Hell is hot and Heaven is cold?

Well it's only hot in the south until you reach the equator, which is the warmest part of our world :earth: If you keep going south beyond that point it will gradually get colder and colder again until you reach the south pole :penguin:

Still, in this fictional scenario, Hell would still be a furnace, but Heaven would be an ideal, mild temperature :)

Well, if you want to stop people from stealing this which is my most stolen artwork ever submitted, then I'll remove it. But I for one don't feel like contacting dozens of people asking them to take my work down especially since many don't.

You wouldn't waste your time searching the internet for people who stole this, then contacting them, asking them to remove it, and dealing with their rants when they won't etc - why should I? people drove me to do this - this is everyone's fault BUT mine!

dude... I don't make my artwork for money... I make it because I want to, not because I have to... although it looks like you spent a lot of time on it so I guess a little pay isn't much to ask for... oh btw, I already copied the picture and edited the label out in photoshop....JK :P

Thats why I stick to scanning my sketches. I don't have much time for em right now cause of school, but I do what I do because I want to. Anyways the point is, you make art for money, and I don't... what the world does with my crappy stuff is their business. I'd like to see it one day in a place where I didn't hang it so I can say, "hey, I drew that"

The colouring and detail in this literally almost hypnotized me for a moment there. I was sitting here staring at it for what must have been at least 5 minuets. This is insanely awesome.
