“And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
Revelation 20:10 (NASB)

This is a piece I had been working on for quite a while. I think I originally started on it back around when I was working on the 2010 calendar. I let it sit for a while, as I wasn’t happy with its final look. I think it was the almost monotone red.

When I was working on images for the 2013 calendar, I decided to revisit it. I was looking at changing the rocks that the devil was on, when an happy accident occurred. I placed an image inside of some grey misty rocks, and loved how the grey contrasted with the fire. I couldn’t use that particular image, so I looked around till I discovered the “Giants Causeway” in Ireland (which is the cool place used in Led Zeppelin’s “Houses of the Holy” cover art.) I always loved the geometrical look of the rocks and had been wanting to use them for a while. As you can see, I added some pillars, stairs and chains as well. Behind the devil you can see a burst of light, representing God. I was pretty happy with how the final piece came out. I would love to see this printed on a reflective surface.

While I was working on this piece, I had Ultimatum‘s cover of Vengeance Rising‘s “Burn” playing in my mind.
