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 )

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!

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 :)

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!

I joined today so I am sorry for not having any personal info to share - but I've spent a while on this site looking/ absorbing. you are the 2nd artist I've decided to watch or "follow" -- which is a compliment. But I just want to commend you on how you've captured all of these feelings or emotion 'words' and turned them into an amazing visual depiction. I have always been a fan of photography, but not paid a lot of attention to this form of artistry. Seen it but it's never 'grabbed!' me, until now. WOW. that's the best thing some of ur work shot into my brain-space. Wow. Awesome eye and vision. So much talent.

What got nothing more to say about this picture?

Don't you think the diamond frames represent values and beauty
and that the color gold is the common representative of wealth and dominion?
