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 :)

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!
