The Seven Deadly Sins:GLUTTONY by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins:GLUTTONY by dahlig
Ah, it's been a long while, hasn't it :) I have a new cast for my right wrist which allows me to paint, so here is the next from the Sins :)

GLUTTONY is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.

Why didn't I draw anything disgusting? Well, I wanted to prove myself I can keep to the original "idea" of a glutton, WHILE making the character aesthetic, pretty and (in her way) attractive. I wanted to prove the modern "pretty=thin to the bone" standard wrong. ;)

Some symbolic explanations:
Abundance of textiles - I treat this sin not only as eating and drinking, but consuming in it's wider meaning, such as buying and gathering useless things etc
Grapes - "luxury" goods, connected with lavish parties (in ancient times) etc
The pink colour theme - reminds me of grapes, sweets etc :)

I hope you like this one, as it was definitely the hardest one to balance and get "right".

I just love these things so much!  It makes me happy to see someone examine the sins as more than the stereotype.  And I'm particularly fond of this since you chose to make a more "unorthodox" beauty.

How do you do the background frame? I've seen it before, and was wondering how to do it, to draw some of my characters.

is this based on one of VOCALOID's songs??

This picture was posted in 2006. =) So no. There couldn't have been any inspiration from those songs. (Don't know much about VOCALOID but I'd assume those songs are newer) These pictures are what first brought me to dA many years ago. :D (Big Grin)

I think if they had meant to base this off of the VOCALOID song series, they would have used the characters in place of their own people. For example, they could have used Meiko for gluttony, since that is her song in the Deadly Sins series. I understand your viewpoint, especially since I am a VOCALOID fan myself, but the Deadly Sins are a common theme outside of the VOCALOID fandom. (sorry if I sounded harsh, that was not my intention. o-o)
