Similar Deviations
All reason set aside, raw emotion is released in it's darkest form


Made for a project at school on the 7 Deadly Sins. This is the fourth of the 7-part series. I apologize for the material on the right side, that's a part of sloth. These pictures actually go together in one long picture (42 inches long) that has already been finished...I'm just splitting them up for submitting here.

Symbolism
Excuse her incredibly large dress. She's the centerpiece in this 42" long picture, so I wanted her to stand out from the other sins.

Red is quite frequently used to represent anger...hence why I used so much red in this picture. The sky in the background is stormy and fiery, to symbolise the chaos that's inside of her. The blood that is pouring out of her nose, mouth, and eyes isn't because she's killed anything. It's actually her own blood. Blood pressure rises when we are angry and I was trying to convey that her blood pressure is so high it's pouring out of her. Also, they say that when you're angry "all you see is red." Which is quite literal in her case since her eyes are all bloodied-up now.

The dead birds on the ground weren't just put there to add some morbid twist to this picture. I wanted to show that her rage can lead to violence, but I did not want to put skulls in there to be confused with Envy. So whatever it was I would pick, it would have to be either hurt & dying, or not fully decayed yet. After much thought I decided what would really convey her rage was if the creature was something innocent, that only someone evil & twisted could hurt. If I put infants in there, that would probably be interpreted in a different way - with a political twist to it. So, I had to stick with something non-human. I also wanted the creature to be something that can escape danger easily. Since I couldn't do a human, (who has the mental capacity to get away from danger), I had to pick something that had the physical capabilities to easily escape danger (not necessarily the mental capacity). Nothing fits those parameters as well as a bird. So, the dead birds are there as a message saying that nothing can escape her wrath, not even the innocent birds (who can evade almost anything).

And I think it's pretty clear why I picked the model I did. I couldn't find any stock that could match that sheer emotion that I wanted wrath to have. Much thanks go to the stock provider :)

The setting is based on the book Dante's Inferno: a dead, desolate place.

All of the seven deadly sins in my series are women because:
A) Women are thought to be more "sinful" for over hundreds of years now. Don't get all woman-activist on me for saying that, I'm a woman myself - and no, I don't believe that "women are more sinful." I think people are people; neither sex is more sinful than the other.
B) There are more women stock providers then men on deviantart. Sorry guys, but there's just not enough of you for me to use!

She yearns for what she cannot possess
..but is intent on taking it

Made for a project at school on the 7 Deadly Sins. This is the second of the 7-part series.

Symbolism
I chose this model because of her pose: she's wrapped in a cloth and hunched over. The meaning I took from it is the cloth that's wrapped around her represents the envy that consumes her, and the hunching and onward-looking infers that she's completely bent over and obsessed with those she envies. The snake is often a symbol for envy, so I've incooporated a few of those into this piece. The skulls represent the people she has hurt because of her jealousy (represented by the snakes weaving through the bones), and inferring that she will go to any length to hurt those she is jealous of.

"Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body."

Character designs i did for TAFE based around the 7 deadly sins.

each sin is dressed in their representing colour.
From the left - the back row is pride, lust, gluttony and wrath
and the fron row is greed, sloth and envy.

i might post the single versions up to so u can have a better look. just let me know if your interested in seeing them ^^


Basically this was done half for TAFE and half for my sister who is cooking stuff for her food class based around the 7 deadly sins and wanted pictures to put with them.
I know lust is traditionally light blue, but for my sister cooking class she was putting it with a pink dish so i made her outfit pink.

Well here are all seven deadly sins in the series I did over christmas break. This was one of my favorite shoots I've done and I hope you all like them together.


Here they are individually and bigger.


ENVY-
A feeling of discontent and resentment caused by the desire for the possessions or qualities of another.




WRATH


(won't let me post more than 6 thumbs?!)



I chose to use male models because they aren't used near as much as females in the art world and they have a lot of potential as well.
Plus I have a lot of cute guy friends haha.

Definition of Sloth: Aversion to work or exertion; laziness; indolence.

For this Sin, I used a bored look mixed with a look of not fully being there. Always daydreaming and never doing anything. I used the color blue because it reminds me of laziness. I hope you like it :3
