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".

Indeed. I found out about that a few months later after I posted, but I forgot about how I told everyone that the sins came from the Bible. Pretty stupid of me, trying to act like a smartass with wrong information. :/

Thanks for pointing that out tho. ^-^

I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to add that the Seven Deadly Sins aren't from the Christian Bible, they are from Catholic Church doctrine.  :)

What nonsense!  These 'Seven Deadly Sin' pieces are brilliant, and dahlig is spot-on in making all of the 'sinners' beautiful women, including 'Gluttony' (who says curvy, well-fed women can't be physically beautiful?).

You seem to be associating sinfulness with ugliness which is very close-minded of you.  Like you say, it's the soul that is being degraded, so why would a malign soul affect a person's physical appearance?  Perhaps you've been watching too many early Disney animated films (i.e. Cinderella and the 'Ugly Stepsisters').

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 :)

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

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.

... the songs are based around the old notion of 7 deadly sins... vocaloid didn't come up with them.

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)

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.

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.

Well, good luck trying to talk to people on the internet, as very, very few will take you seriously if you type like that. When I passed my eye through your comment, I was sure you were just trolling.

I am positive that the artist didn't chose woman as a sin, but simply as a theme.
