A while back, after I finished the seven deadly sins project, I posted a poll asking which photomanipulation project I should work on next. The winner was heaven and hell. I finally had some down time between all my school work and drawing to do it. Please, let me know if you like it...

Hell: In many religious traditions, Hell is a place of suffering and punishment in the afterlife. Religions with a linear divine history often depict Hell as endless. Religions with a cyclic history often depict Hell as an intermediary period between incarnations. Typically these traditions located Hell under the external core of the Earth's surface and often included entrances to Hell from the land of the living. Other afterlife destinations included Heaven, Purgatory, Paradise, Nirvana, Naraka, and Limbo.
Hell is often portrayed as populated with demons, who torment the damned. Many are ruled by a death god, such as Nergal, Hades, Yama or the Christian/Islamic Devil, called Satan or Lucifer.
Quotes on hell:
Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned / Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.
Hell is empty, and all the devils are here.
Paradise was made for tender hearts; hell, for loveless hearts.
The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.
Maybe this world is another planet's hell.
