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:)

All seven are great pieces of art! Very nice how you gave each a color to match the sin along with traits that represent it. Very impressive!

Nice, I knew someone would have the smarts and audacity to put a thumbnail of Lust from FMA.
I found out that Lust's voice actress Laura Bailey is also the voice of Anko Mitarashi from Naruto. The bloodthirsty psychopathic loose cannon lady w/ the purple hair who cut the knucklehead's cheek and licked off his blood?

I like your definition of Lust as primarily being "drowned in your own world" rather than focused on seducing and flirting. It makes sense because it foregrounds the selfishness that I think is at the heart of all sin. I also like your red -> flame -> lust idea--I think it makes more sense than blue too.

It wouldn't have mattered which one you used Lust is Simply to Indulge oneself in pleasure weather it is Physical, Emotional, Or Spiritual pleasure

Very classy for someone who's supposed to be sex-crazed...Love the beautiful woman, the flowing red dress she's wearing and the waterfall background...Pretty inviting...Almost sexually intiving, hint hint...Don't how the Lustful sin relates to the color blue...It's red, pink, and purple hands down (same as your picture color here, odd enough)...Guess everyone know the mighty big difference between LOVE and LUST...Lust has always been the very thing that got people, especially men in trouble in the past and still to this day do...Love is something lust can never win over...It's bigger than lust...It's an immortally intense feeling and no sexual deviations can ever fight against that...Anyway love your Lust character and more to come hopefully.

I love it! But I just noticed that the left hand on her neck is weird. It should actually be mirror-inverted, shouldn't it?
