Princess Avarice, residing on her throne of pure goldmatching the noble dress tailored of satin, beholding her one and only, her material goods. Feeling grand over those in jealousy of her abundance, she has no idea of the deadly sin she lives as she pays no appreciation to the spiritual aspects of her worldly belongings.

The Seven Deadly Sins: AVARICE by *blackeri is a delightful digital painting about a stricter aspect of religion and spiritual life.

Also viewable as our Print of the Day.

Oh, my fav sin! Weird, huh? But I'm just so GREEDY...I even took an online quiz and ended up with Greed!

To me, avarice and greed are some of the ugliest sins a person can have. But you still captured that sin in a beautiful, stunning image that represents it perfectly! I adore all of your Seven Deadly Sins collection! The quality of these paintings is like no other! It's like the women you draw in each of these paintings is really the embodiment of the sin they represent. Avarice is wonderfully portrayed, everything from her dress, to her delicate, clearly expensive golden jewellery, to her heavy golden makeup is beaming with material wealth. And her condescending, haughty expression is perfect! It seems to say: "What? You think you're good enough to stare at me, even though you have no jewels? Get out of my face, peasant!"

Your Seven Deadly Sins series is whimsical, enchanting, and very well constructed! I absolutely love the elements of symbolism you included in each piece- this makes your spin on this generally over-done theme very refreshing and unique :) Lust and Envy are my two favorites- Lust because of the complex  detail, the unique lighting scheme, and the fact that I just can't help but love the appeal of the idea. Envy is amazing because you managed to take what I also think of as the ugliest sin and still made it beautiful and delicate, yet menacing. One thing I particularly marvel at it the draping you gave each sin's dress. Gowns with that much complexity are very difficult to make so convincing, yet you pulled it off with photo perfection. So, I must ask: how did you go about your study of draping? I have worked for years to master this, but my skill at designing flowing textiles is still so shaky. Anyway, excellent work and thank you so much for sharing your lovely pieces!
The whole series is amazing! Well done!

I'm not that religious either, but I still find this topic fascinating. :)
