fter playing Dante's Inferno, I decied to re-read Dante's Divine Comedy. It inspired me to want to draw pictures to it, and from there I wanted to also read it. The result, a somewhat audio-book with my perspective. Instead of Dante, he is replaced with my original character, Son. I replaced Dante because I wanted a somewhat modernized version, but also Son's backstory fits the Divine Comedy so perfectly. You will get into that as the story progresses. This is more or less a trailer for what is to come. I plan on doing the entire Divine Comedy. Some verses may be taken out, some words may be slightly altered, and when Son speaks he will be speaking in a more modern language, but other than that I refuse to alter this masterpiece. I recommend that you all read the Divine Comedy; It's a wonderful story/poem. You do not have to be religious at all to enjoy it.

I do not own or claim to own the music in this video. I feel that the music fits. Please support the artist by buying the album. All rights reserved to them

I like getting to know people like you as aquatinces. People like us enjoy works of art and creating art so that we may share it with the random and friends. I enjoy your voice acting work in series such as Zelda UO and WHOOKOS, and also you dub the Divine Comedy and minorly alter it as to fit that of your original character. You are one of many people who keep me inspired to do artwork for my OC's and submit it to Deviant Art. Son, you are a truely awe inspiring and amazing person.
