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
situation"


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.

symbolism:
- 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!

^ All of this. While I wouldn't really act against someone or hurt them whenever I see someone that can draw extremely well I feel so jelly, especially if they put up something that looks amazing then say, "Lol yea, I was just sketching. Kinda embarassed its really, really crappy."
Anyway, LEGENDARY art you got thar.
