The Seven Deadly Sins: LUST by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: LUST by dahlig
Hello everyone!
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."

The theme:
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)
Ok, nevermind :P

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 :P

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!

DISCLAIMER: 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:)

::Does the happy dance:: Finally! been eagerly awaiting this piece since I love the previous two. Again the choices you made really complete the piece. I really like the borders for all three pieces. Any plans on the next one??

Well the next one will be Sloth and I have the image of it pretty ready in my mind actually :) Still, I will now need to leave the series for a bit and contribute to another project (a contest entry :])

Beautiful work, so realistic and I love the use of the reds and pinks to symbolize femininity and passion. I love this just as much as I loved envy and vanity, it was well worth the wait and an instant favorite.
