Arnold Böcklin (1827-1901)
“Vestal” (1874)
Symbolism

Vestals were priestesses of Vesta, the Roman goddess of the hearth, home, and family. They cultivated the sacred fire of Vesta that was not allowed to go out. Vestals were freed of the usual social obligations to marry and bear children, and took a vow of chastity in order to devote themselves to the study and correct observance of state rituals that were off-limits to the male colleges of priests.

OH BOY THE QUALITY IS BAD but hey I saw that @telekineticeggos a while back wanted stranger things characters drawn based on the face of this art post http://superamiuniverse.tumblr.com/post/157120682165/made-one-of-these-things-its-good-to-smile by @superamiuniverse and sooooo I drew Evil Will Byers, in an AU where when he returns he starts turning evil. Clothes based on the season 2 entertainment weekly promotional screen shots :)

Akira (1988) | Progression Video

If you were curious about how I did the piece, I made a convenient video! It omits the beginnings of the title and the touch-ups I made but it’s basically the entire process.
