The Seven Deadly Sins: ENVY by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: ENVY by dahlig
Ok so here it is, second from the series of Seven Deadly Sins.

VANITY can be seen here: [link] :]

The theme:

Second of the Seven Deadly Sins serie.

"Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or

Personally I think envy means much more than just a wish to have something
someone else has. To me, it means also ACTING AGAINST that person,
"revenging" in a way, trying to take the "object of our desire" away from
them, or backstabbing them in some way etc.
That is why myself I consider envy the "heaviest" sin of all seven.

- snake - as I mentioned, envy, to me, is connected with cunning and doing
something behind one's back :)

- poison ivy leaf in the frame (and the column)- maybe just a word play, but
I always connected ivy with destruction of some sort... Growing using a
different object as a "support"... Something like that ;]

- color green - i guess it needs no comment :P

Techy info:
During the last few weeks I have been going through a small "artistic
breakdown", noticing how many mistakes I make etc... So I decided to try to
work harder on my pieces from now on and develop my style... So here you go,
something more painty than before :] I hope you like it, cause I'm pretty
satisfied for now :]

Time spent: around 60 hours again, doing those leaves sucked, really!

Coming next: (most probably) LUST :]~
PS.this deviation will also be a print!

I love her. She looks at me like: "You are better than me. Soon that'll change...."
Loving the series! :D
I love her appearance. Actually, it's one of my favourite fantasy pictures at all. Were you inspired by particular person or the look of Envy is the fruit of imagination?))

Of course, Envy is green. I love this series by the way!
Love this series! And I love the way you made ram horns out of her hair. The lighting and volume are just right =). The background is secondary but not half-assed. The details, like the twisting bark of the tree, pull you away but your eyes spiral back towards the center piece. Nice work~!
you work is very good, but I think that the arms should be longer, because hands are a bit higher than your kneecap. :)
I luv this theme of the seven deadly sins..your work is brilliant..
