A Few More Days - only Virgil and Dante to Paint

 A few more days to go on the chair of Minos, Dante and Virgil

A few more days to go on the chair of Minos, Dante and Virgil

I am within days of finishing panel 6, Canto 5: Minos, Judge of the Damned.  I've finished the background, the demon and the soul being dragged up the stairs as well as the body of Minos. The serpent tail of Minos took an especially long time to make sure the pattern of the snake and the highlights were all attended to painting-wise.  It was a lot of fun.  All I need to do yet is the figures of Dante and Virgil and the chair below Minos.  This is going to be a really dramatic painting and I can't wait to finish it.  One final element I have to add yet is going to be a steady flow of souls being ushered down into hell by demons in the background on the left and right of Minos way in the distance.  I hope this painting of King Minos will be one of the best representations of him in the Inferno.
