The Seven Deadly Sins: SLOTH by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: SLOTH by dahlig
"Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work"

This is the fifth from the Seven Deadly Sins series.

Symbolism:

- She is sitting on a swing and blowing bubbles: it's a symbol of wasting your time on insignificant things; idleness

- She is placed above the ground, in the sky: symbol of being separated from Earth and mundane htings (like work etc)

- Feathers: to me they symbolize something sleepy and lazy

- Color: to me light blue is also a color of sleepiness and idleness


Technical:
Done in Painter in approx. 60 hours.

Hope you like :)

Lovely!

Her hair kind of evokes a cloud, too -- and to me it also suggests Marie Antoinette, who is definitely a popular symbol of idleness

The symbolism in this piece is beautifully depicted! When I say that this is the embodiment of sloth, I mean it! And it's ironic that it took a lot of work and time on your behalf to make something representing laziness.

Beautiful piece! This is an amazing series!  BTW, there's A LOT of the entire series floating around the internet with no recognition to you. I just spent 20 minutes or so trying to find out who the wonderful artist is, before finding the ones that are actually here, as compared to used on a page to advertise things. Again, beautiful work!

I love the symbolism in this one a lot; the lack of caring for the outside world and responsibility...true nature of what Sloth really means.  Well done!

This is my deadliest sin. I'm smart and talented, but extremely lazy and constantly procrastinating and avoiding doing any work. If I could change only one thing about me, I would give myself ambition, drive and initiative.

Very relaxing. I might enjoy this one more than the gluttony pick because it really hits the Sloth. It's so calming, from the colors, to the pose. Lovely.

Clouds could represent night time= sleep time.

If you look in manga or anime, a bubble is often used to convey sleep!

Nice subtleties! Love the dreamcatcher-like frame!

She reminds me of Glind in Wicked when she first comes in on a wheel-type swing thing! And wearing blue too!
