Daily Deviation

Given 2005-09-27
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. ( Featured by Thunderstatement )

Definately represents her sin and those who conduct it. :nod:

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

pervertpattie Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
I like what you did with this sin because the look on her face is amused and evil, but I feel like you could have done more with backround without subtracting from the character. But overall well done!

I started with finding your Wrath piece and am LOVING every other part of the Seven Deadly Sins
DiverseCitizen Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Student Writer
Wow, this is probably my favorite out of the whole series! (Next to Wrath and Envy, of course.XD) I like how the dress is kind of like a mummy's wrappings, which could be taken as another bit of symbolism.

Happy *really* late DD!

This looks really great and I faved some of my favorites (obviously thats why they call it faving) but I feel as though there is something missing in this picture...I hope you don't mind my little comment I am not trying to discourage you or be otherwise rude I am just simply stating my opinion..Great job with Lust and Wrath :)
Tiaran-daughter Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
Interesting choice to use diamonds / gemstones as a symbol for avarice instead of gold coins, which I would have expected. It sort of makes me think of the saying "diamonds are a girl's best friend," which has overtones of turning to wealth for the support you should get from people. I really like this series!
Rachopin77 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013
