Dante and Virgil by FreakingArG Dante and Virgil by FreakingArG
Hey hey hey! It's Dante's Inferno!...
Look! See? There's Dante, isn't he a bundle of joy?

Dante's Inferno was actually a big inspiration behind Still Alive (go figure, right?)

Pffthahaha, their faces are just priceless :rofl: And Dante DOES usually have a stern look in his portraits XD
...Although to be fair, the description of Hell in Inferno is absolutely chilling =P

I love this. Virgil's hand is... Aah. They're just so cute.
I'm reading Inferno in AP Lit right now, and these are the characters I picture. It's enjoyable.

The best thing about this is that almost every single portrait of Dante has that exact expression. :XD:

I'm reading the Divine Comedy right now, but I must be missing something. I imagine the roles being reversed, since Virgil has been through hell before and Dante seems much more fascinated with hell than Virgil.

They're always stopping so Dante can interrogate a tortured soul, and I get this uninterested vibe from Virgil the entire time.

OH hell yes. You seen the 1911 movie "L'Inferno"? Dante's like OMG every second and Virgil has almost the same expression on his face all the time ^^

Are you serious? Since when is The Inferno an inspiration for Still Alive?!
(I shit you not, I just go through reading that book and I've heard Still Alive a million times... I just don't see it... THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME!)

IT'S EXACTLY AS DANTE INTENDED TO BE PORTRAYED. IN FACT, HE IS POSED LIKE THAT BECAUSE A MINUTE AGO HE WAS FANTASIZING ABOUT GROPING BEATRICE'S BOOBS- SO MUCH OF THE CHARACTER IS REPRESENTED OH MY GOSH

Virgil is, actually, perhaps even more accurately portrayed (in fact, that's not even a joke... he is...)
