Purgatory Prisoner

I had a dream that was about a man trapped in Purgatory.

He was chained to the heavy weights of his sins. He had been there so long, his body turned to iron and his head turned into a heavy ball like at the end of his chains. He was doomed to walk the wastelands until he either repented or gave into temptation…

But he turned away from the offer of Heaven and fought back the creatures trying to drag him to Hell, using the very sins he was chained to as weapons.

Perhaps because, for once, he has control. For once he is free from a life of captivity, pain and suffering, even if he’s free in chains. He will only be a servant in Heaven and a prisoner in Hell…

So why not remain a free man in Purgatory?

My dream was so vivid that I actually woke up and sketched out this exact character design. I really want to do something with this guy… I would love to do a short film, honestly. I think I’m going to make one of him someday! I need to come up with a name for him too…

Characters, concept and art belong to me. Don’t use under any circumstance. Come up with ideas of your very own! :)

Wow~. I love it when a great idea starts in a dream. I have one comic that started that way, and it's going very well.
(Lately all my dreams have been narratives (?) about the meaninglessness of time. I feel like there's a metaphysics professor in my head...)
Anyway, I applaud that you're willing to take such a deep concept and run with it. Good luck with your endeavors!

Please do resist... There's a lot more to this besides the fact that I said the word 'ball', you know.
