..Or if you prefer: Pride - Mother of all sins
First one of the, duh, Seven Deadly Sins serie.
"Vanity is an excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise."
It's all pretty obvious but I will explain some stuff which inspired me, to sound cool, mind you.
- As you can read up, vanity is linked with the color violet, so here you go the color theme.
- Peacocks remind me of vanity as well, therefore I have used a peacock feather as an inspiration for the "frame".
- You can see the background being desertish (plus the dead tree)... Vain people usually never see any beauty in the world, but only in themselves... That is why everything around them, sooner or later, dies - and that is what I have tried to depicture.
lady's props based on my (pencil) sketch based on a couple o' refs, refs for textures.
you can see some art nouveau inspirations in the frame - my tribute to A. Mucha, as he is my idol
Generally it is my most thought-through and time consuming piece and I need to say I am satisfied with it
Around 60 hours or so, as some parts were hell
to finish, seriously :/
Anyway, I hope you like it, comments, critiques, favs welcome!
Coming next (someday): Envy
