Satan, Sin, and Death

Created: December 14th, 2002 I've been doing some illustration along the lines of Paradise Lost. The following is one of a series of illustrations. I happen to like this one and will share it with you all. This takes place after Satan and his fallen agnels have decided they wish to make war with Heaven and God by corrupting Man. The text reads:Yet uncosumed. Before the gates there sat On either side a formitable shape: The one seemed woman to the wast, and fair, But ended foul in many a scaly fold Voluminous and vast, a serpent armed With mortal sting: about her middle round ... In secret, riding through the air she comes Lured with the smell of infant blood, to dance With Lapland witches, while the laboring moon Eclipses at their charms. The other shape, If shape it might be called that shape had none Dictiguishable in member, joint or limb, Or substance might be called that shadow seemed, For each seemed either; black it stood as night, Fierce as ten furies, terrible as hell, And shoot a dreadful dart; what seemed his head The likeness of a kingly grown had on. PARADISE LOST - John Milton (II-)
