"Choose me or your pyre." by marianne-khalil "Choose me or your pyre." by marianne-khalil

"Hellfire, dark fire
Now gypsy, it's your turn
Choose me or your pyre
Be mine or you will burn"


--"Hellfire" from Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame


Those who've been watching me for a while now know that my favorite Disney movie is The Hunchback of Notre Dame (as well as one of my favorite classic novels), so when I saw `NikiVandermosten's contest (which you can find here: [link]) I jumped at the excuse to draw a scene from it (and listen to "Hellfire" on a never-ending loop). Of course, I took many artistic liberties (and I may have over-dramatized the scene just a bit), but I hope I've still done it justice.

You can view the scene from the movie here: [link] (starts at about 3 minutes in)
You can listen to "Hellfire" here (AKA the best Disney song you will ever hear): [link]


No references aside from the movie still were used.

Time: 11.5 hours
Used: Photoshop CS2, Wacom Graphire Wireless Tablet

Artwork ~tempest-haze
Esmeralda, Hellfire, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame Disney

The intensity of his frustrated desire for her is matched by the intensity of his punishment of her.  Is there anything worse for a woman than burning at the stake?  It is a torment that is designed for her very anatomy!

The angle, lighting, and appropriate placement of shadows really lend a lot to this unforgettable scene from the film. An absolute top notch effort!
