Spike in Hell-A and Angel in Bosch' Hell

New artwork featuring our two favourite vampires, made for two challenges over at Buffyforums. There is some nudity, but nothing that wasn't seen in the show, so it should be SFW.

The first challenge was from buffylover about the Buffyverse comics, with as prompts "Your best colour", "Your best Panel" and "The best character". Because of lack of time, I tried to be efficient by answering addressing all three of them in one go. Since my favourite character is Spike and my favourite comics artist is Franco Urru (RIP) I took a panel from Spike: After the Fall showing Spike being all badass, and I recoloured it. For the new colour palette I took my inspiration from my favourite colourist, Fabio Mantovani. He coloured, among other things, the final parts of Angel:AtF and the first parts of the IDW Spike series. After a first, less successful attempt this is what I eventually came up with:

The second challenge was by Nina, "The Masters of the Low Countries". The idea was to take inspiration from/reuse parts of a painting by one of seven famous painters from the Low Countries (The Netherlands and Belgium). Since I've always loved the unlimited imagination of Jeroen Bosch, I took my inspiration from his famous three-paneled painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights", and in particular the Hell panel. Here, we see Angel in Hell, being tortured by Bosch' delightful little monsters:
