The Seven Deadly Sins:GLUTTONY by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins:GLUTTONY by dahlig
Ah, it's been a long while, hasn't it :) I have a new cast for my right wrist which allows me to paint, so here is the next from the Sins :)

GLUTTONY is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

Why didn't I draw anything disgusting? Well, I wanted to prove myself I can keep to the original "idea" of a glutton, WHILE making the character aesthetic, pretty and (in her way) attractive. I wanted to prove the modern "pretty=thin to the bone" standard wrong. ;)

Some symbolic explanations:
Abundance of textiles - I treat this sin not only as eating and drinking, but consuming in it's wider meaning, such as buying and gathering useless things etc
Grapes - "luxury" goods, connected with lavish parties (in ancient times) etc
The pink colour theme - reminds me of grapes, sweets etc :)

I hope you like this one, as it was definitely the hardest one to balance and get "right".

I loved your art style and the way you conveyed the pic. I can relate at gluttony's personification because I also love eating a lot and won't stop.

The grapes are a nice touch

I have been wanting to push the Gluttony concept even further, this reminded me od a sketch lost on a dead laptop where my gluttony character is "normal" build and the eyes and hands were emphasized to punch home the issue of insatiability.
 Good job sticking to your concept.

I was just thinking that; she is still attractive, while portraying her Sin quite thoroughly. Another possible way to look at Gluttony...oddly a sort of Greed; always wanting more. In this case, wanting more to CONSUME, whether food, pleasure, money, etc etc getting wasted away on whatever-it-is. But I always thought the connection to Greed seemed interesting; MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE.
Just a thought  (:

PanTran Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Amazing work! While I still don't really find her attractive, it's just because of the way her face looks (Something about it just doesn't appeal to me lol), but her body is beautiful! You've done a wonderful job on this whole series!

Also, I had a weird idea that if you made a male version of each, you'd have enough to make a calendar! (Well, I guess you'd have 2 bonus pictures)

I know, silly idea (But male versions would be very appreciated <3)

Beautiful :) I very like it :)
AjaxTelamoneis Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
She's so cute! I'd say you've definitely succeeded in drawing a fat character who is also beautiful!
ynne-black Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2015   Digital Artist
I wonder why you think slightly chubby characters would be hard to make beautiful? (She's not even that much overweight, if at all.)

// I love this painting and I agree she's beautiful, so it's not meant in any wrong way :)

I just love these things so much!  It makes me happy to see someone examine the sins as more than the stereotype.  And I'm particularly fond of this since you chose to make a more "unorthodox" beauty.

How do you do the background frame? I've seen it before, and was wondering how to do it, to draw some of my characters.
luo-chan Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2013
is this based on one of VOCALOID's songs??

CelestialKisses Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This picture was posted in 2006. =) So no. There couldn't have been any inspiration from those songs. (Don't know much about VOCALOID but I'd assume those songs are newer) These pictures are what first brought me to dA many years ago. :D (Big Grin) 
Celia-the-Pikachu Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
I think if they had meant to base this off of the VOCALOID song series, they would have used the characters in place of their own people. For example, they could have used Meiko for gluttony, since that is her song in the Deadly Sins series. I understand your viewpoint, especially since I am a VOCALOID fan myself, but the Deadly Sins are a common theme outside of the VOCALOID fandom. (sorry if I sounded harsh, that was not my intention. o-o)
luo-chan Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014
nah, you didn't sound harsh at all! i know that there's another term out there, but just pointing out vocaloid.....^^cause at first i seriously thought these two were related! XDD
Celia-the-Pikachu Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2014
LOL, It's cool, at first I thought about Vocaloids too ^w^
Rocketai Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013
No, this is based on the Seven Deadly Sins....
luo-chan Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
Yeah... The seven deadly sins are from vocaloid though right?
Rocketai Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
Of course not. It's from the Bible.
Zarinari Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to add that the Seven Deadly Sins aren't from the Christian Bible, they are from Catholic Church doctrine.  :)
Rocketai Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015
Indeed. I found out about that a few months later after I posted, but I forgot about how I told everyone that the sins came from the Bible. Pretty stupid of me, trying to act like a smartass with wrong information. :/

Thanks for pointing that out tho. ^-^
Zarinari Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
You're welcome.  :)
luo-chan Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
Seriously??. Because if you look on youtube, there's a whole series of vocaloid songs relating to that
Ie. Daughter of Evil-Rin Kagamine is the song for the sin of Pride.
luo-chan Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014
i know XDD I saw that too, but just saying, there are songs out there. ^^
Akamar Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
... the songs are based around the old notion of 7 deadly sins... vocaloid didn't come up with them.

Well said. :nod:
I love the collection, and this unfortunately sometimes reminds me of when I snack on Twix.... :(
Still, a good amount of work went into this and it's proved to make this even better! :)

I love your Deadly Sins collection. It just pains me when I see it used around the internet by random people because I am sure half of them do not know where the picture comes from.  :(
