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".

She's so cute! I'd say you've definitely succeeded in drawing a fat character who is also beautiful!

I wonder why you think slightly chubby characters would be hard to make beautiful? (She's not even that much overweight, if at all.)

// I love this painting and I agree she's beautiful, so it's not meant in any wrong way :)

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??
CelestialKisses Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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)
OtakuDreams Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
nah, you didn't sound harsh at all! i know that there's another term out there, but just pointing out vocaloid.....^^cause at first i seriously thought these two were related! XDD
Celia-the-Pikachu Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2014
LOL, It's cool, at first I thought about Vocaloids too ^w^
Rocketai Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013
No, this is based on the Seven Deadly Sins....
OtakuDreams Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah... The seven deadly sins are from vocaloid though right?
Rocketai Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014
Of course not. It's from the Bible.
OtakuDreams Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Seriously??. Because if you look on youtube, there's a whole series of vocaloid songs relating to that
Ie. Daughter of Evil-Rin Kagamine is the song for the sin of Pride.
OtakuDreams Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
i know XDD I saw that too, but just saying, there are songs out there. ^^
Akamar Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
... the songs are based around the old notion of 7 deadly sins... vocaloid didn't come up with them.

Well said. :nod:
I love the collection, and this unfortunately sometimes reminds me of when I snack on Twix.... :(
Still, a good amount of work went into this and it's proved to make this even better! :)
sitauset Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I love your Deadly Sins collection. It just pains me when I see it used around the internet by random people because I am sure half of them do not know where the picture comes from.  :(

Well you broka that Pretty=thin to the bone standard because she's beautful and curvy
pervertpattie Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
I like your use of sybolism, and I also like how instead of cakes and or some other sweet you chose grapes like they would have portrade it in ancient times.
Shayen-Pl Featured By Owner May 27, 2013
Why always a woman is a sin?
Rocketai Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013
I am positive that the artist didn't chose woman as a sin, but simply as a theme.
Seriously, you guys see wrong in every goddamn corner... This looks like Tumblr.
turquoise-dawn Featured By Owner May 27, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That's what I wondered as well.
Shayen-Pl Featured By Owner May 28, 2013
Maybe we are so evil and the satan is the one who create us, not God xD

Agreed, my dear. :D
SavvyRed Featured By Owner May 23, 2013  Student Writer
You are an amazing artist and have immense talent, but I just wonder why you chose to depict gluttony as a woman who looks average weight or even slightly thin. I could understand if you posted a woman who is thin because that would be sending the message that even thin people can be "gluttons." I also sort of understand if you depicted a significantly overweight woman because at least that would be an actual person who is heavy. But I feel as though by contrasting her healthy weight with the others tells people that if you're this body weight, that means you're fat. I'm not saying that other sins are underweight or unhealthy, just that you may be portraying the average woman as too heavy to be healthy.

Otherwise, I love your work, and I hope you continue making beautiful art.

Very good pic, I think the design is perfect. Good job.
Feather-Heart36 Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
All your pictures r very creative and real looking.
spellbound-kitten Featured By Owner May 3, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love how you put this picture together. I found it interesting when you explained why you made her attractive. I personally figured that you did that to symbolize how tempting these sins can be. If you did make her ugly, the sin wouldn't seem as intriguing. I also like how you made the point that 'thin' doesn't necessarily mean pretty. beautiful piece, and i love the rest of the series!! :hug:
BonkuriKun Featured By Owner May 1, 2013
I identify with the Sin of Gluttony quite often, so I do particularly favor this deviation. Great like the others.

Logan-groupie91 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree with you on the idea that you have to be skin and bone to be pretty. That is wrong. My mom's not skinny but she is ery beautiful.
Vodos Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013
I think you did a wonderful job balancing this one and I appreciate your view to the "beauty = stick figure" debate. If girls were meant to be that thin, then they wouldn't have curves to begin with!
