So after 2 months of silence, I am giving you Lust
This is the third one of the serie, first ones are Vanity and Envy
"Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body."
As you can see, from my Lust sketch I have only kept the pose, but totally changed the face.
I think that this one fits the topic better.
I see Lust as being concentrated on yourself, being "drowned in your own world" kind of way, rather than seducting and being "flirty"
(and this look was used in the sketch)
About the symbolism:
The color - I am aware of the fact, that according to some sources Lust is connected with blue. To me though, blue just doesn't do it - It's too "cold", and therefore I picked(surprise) red - connection with the color of flame, warmth. No I am not connecting lust with love
The frame - uses the flame pattern... my thought-connections were: flame -> burning desire -> lust
The waterfall - something rapid, unpredictable, not controlable :]
The picture took me a long LONG time to finish, mainly because I have done 2 other versions which I was not satisfied with.
Done in Painter7 and Photoshop CS in an uncoutable number of hours XD
Hope you like it!
: As I am currently working on another project, I will take a break from the Seven Deadly Sins Serie, BUT I DEFINITELY AM planning on finishing it
. The next one, coming probably in a few months will be SLOTH
PS. Just in case you're interested, I am now submitting Lust as a printout
