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.

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 enough...is 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  (:

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)

She's so cute! I'd say you've definitely succeeded in drawing a fat character who is also beautiful!

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 :)
