This pic is yet another done for the Weakcut jams. This subject? Heaven
& Hell. Hmmf. Heaven & Hell seem to me like concepts too big to
draw, or even portray properly in any media. The trick is to totally dumb
it down, that's basically what Todd Mcfarlane did. He turned it into red

My original idea was pretty different than this one. Actually, I thought
of this basic idea & another which I was gonna go with. It involved
a kitty cat... I tried to make it work, but it wasn't happening. So I
went with this one. There were a few thing s I was trying out on this
pic. I really wanted to work on my male anatomy. I've been doing a lot
of cheesecake gals, because I don't get a chance to to that, and I need
to work on it. But I also need to figure out how to draw big beefy guys
too... I was somewhat inspired by the fantasy paintings of Frazetta or
Boris Vallejo, that kind of thing in general. The gender war aspect I
hadn't planned on at all, but it seemed cool. No big statements about
how evil guys are or divine females. I don't think Heaven & Hell look
like this at all. This is more like a Melrose Place Heaven & Hell,
or something fitting Xena & Hercules.
