The Seven Deadly Sins: SLOTH by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: SLOTH by dahlig
"Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work"

This is the fifth from the Seven Deadly Sins series.


- She is sitting on a swing and blowing bubbles: it's a symbol of wasting your time on insignificant things; idleness

- She is placed above the ground, in the sky: symbol of being separated from Earth and mundane htings (like work etc)

- Feathers: to me they symbolize something sleepy and lazy

- Color: to me light blue is also a color of sleepiness and idleness

Done in Painter in approx. 60 hours.

Hope you like :)

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl

This reminds me of Marie Antoniette, or however her name was spelled. It also reminds me of that one woman from The Hunger Games, for some reason. I think it's the hair? Either way, this is amazing :D
someone stole your arts ---->…

Her hair kind of evokes a cloud, too -- and to me it also suggests Marie Antoinette, who is definitely a popular symbol of idleness

The symbolism in this piece is beautifully depicted! When I say that this is the embodiment of sloth, I mean it! And it's ironic that it took a lot of work and time on your behalf to make something representing laziness.

I like your descriptions on these :)
daisydill Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2014
Beautiful piece! This is an amazing series!  BTW, there's A LOT of the entire series floating around the internet with no recognition to you. I just spent 20 minutes or so trying to find out who the wonderful artist is, before finding the ones that are actually here, as compared to used on a page to advertise things. Again, beautiful work!

Pornstarchive Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2014
I love the symbolism in this one a lot; the lack of caring for the outside world and responsibility...true nature of what Sloth really means.  Well done!

Rosalinda16 Featured By Owner May 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is my deadliest sin. I'm smart and talented, but extremely lazy and constantly procrastinating and avoiding doing any work. If I could change only one thing about me, I would give myself ambition, drive and initiative.
