@Engravement: You can also tell what sort of sin it was through looking at the runes on their foreheads or limbs. I have a chart with the runes' translations somewhere, but my best bet is that they're Anglo-Saxon. I used Birth, Fertility, Earth, Death, Man... and others I can't translate through looking at them. :< You sorta have the idea right, though, how one may appear more fearsome than the other is totally random. Crow/bat Sheol? .... >_>' Care to clarify? Even their designs confuse me.
I do have a story, though. Here's the link to it if you're interested: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=41352
It introduces the concept through the perspective of that self-aware Sheol. Enjoy. :3
@Zega: I'm syched that you posted to my thread, much thanks upon you! Utterly disturbing. These are our sins as a physical representation. You couldn't image the looks on some people's faces when I had to explain this to them. I did get into some rather intelligent discussions about them with one friend of mine. It got too serious, though. After all, they're just made-up characters. XD
@Brokenline: I started drawing in pen last year, during history class' boring moments. It gave me something to do, but my friend in class really inspired me to improve on it, and later my own confidence determined it to make pen a regular media for myself. Yeah, a lot of events went into making my pen skills what they are today. I'm glad you find them so impressive, though, and that means a lot to me. Thank you.
@Coos: The two really help inform the onlooker at what exactly they're looking at, so I thought it a good idea to include the description. Unfortunately, though, my subject matter is so different from what regular people look into, sometimes explainations like that are necessary. I'll be doing ones like this for my art presentation near the end of May at my school. Thanks, though! It helps the self-confidence.
I really appreciate the compliments guys. This piece wouldn't have taken as long if I had more time, but I'm very satisfied that it awed you all so well. I hope for more like this in the future then. All I need to do now is figure out what to draw next. Damn self-critism... <:/
