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".

"The Devil Wears Prada" is a great example

well, and then there are people who are BORN skinny, and there's nothing wrong with it!!! raaawwrrr.... :angered:
beautiful art!! she is pretty... i esp. like the dress!
I know. I already tried to explain that what I said came out wrong. x__x There is nothing wrong with being skinny; it's just it's wrong to think only "skinny" or "thin" people can be pretty. (in my opinion.)

And yes, the dress is beautiful :)

okay.... i wasn't really directing that at you, just at people in general, because i get a lot of crap from people because they assume i must be annorexic (did i spell that right??) because i'm so skinny. and yet, here i am, eating constantly! so sorry if i sound irate. this is kind of an issue with me. :fork:
anyway, sorry bout that.

I have the same problem! D:
People think I'm anorexic because I eat so much and barely gain any weight.
I'm what- 90 lbs? I'm 13 PEOPLE!
My friends can lift me into the air.
There all like, "Wow you're light."
