Mihai Marius Mihu and I would like to share our collaboration, the Rivers of Hell from Greek mythology. Please visit the group on flickr for the concept art developed during the project as well as studies of some of the builds: https://flic.kr/g/qZVdL For now, just enjoy the pictures. Acheron by Mihai Marius Mihu, on Flickr The Acheron, river of woe, is the first river reached by the dead on their final journey. Countless souls are whisked across the black depths by Charon, ferryman of Hades. Each soul pays but one coin to cross yet Charon’s wealth must equal that of Midas himself. Styx by The Deathly Halliwell, on Flickr The Styx, river of hate, tumbles from cliffs and past a thorny shore. This river, central to the oaths of the Gods, offers no comfort to the souls of the dead. On its shore stalk the Erinyes, visiting justice upon criminal souls. Cocytus by Mihai Marius Mihu, on Flickr The Cocytus, river of wailing, pools its stinking depths around those who deserve unending torture. This foul swamp offers little reprieve to Sisyphus as he again approaches the summit, thinking that this time may be his last. Here also Ixion turns on his wheel, mud and flies coating his flesh for eternity. Lethe by The Deathly Halliwell, on Flickr The Lethe, river of forgetfulness, winds through the cave of Hypnos and across the plains of Hell. It is here that spirits come, drinking deep of its waters and forgetting their mortal lives. Atop his cave, Hypnos dreams. Phlegethon by The Deathly Halliwell, on Flickr The Phlegethon, river of fire, churns through the bowels of Hell, boiling the souls of the damned. As it coils down to the deepest depths of Hell it approaches that prison of the titans, dreadful Tartarus. The great guardian beast Cerberus patrols this river as well as it travels the borders of the underworld. Thanks for viewing!
