Finally done :)

Hi guys,

It has been exactly 2 years since I released Vanity, the first of my Seven Deadly Sins series and that is why, symbolically, I have chosen this special "anniversary", as the date of the completion of the project.

I know I have not been as active in replying to your comments as I should have.

Still, I want to let you know greatly I appreciated, and still appreciate, every single bit of feedback I have gotten during this time. If it was not for your warmest, kindest support, I probably would have not finished this Series in the first place.

So now it's all finally done and to be honest, I am a bit sad:

The Seven Deadly Sins: VANITY by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: ENVY by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: LUST by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: AVARICE by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: SLOTH by dahlig  The Seven Deadly Sins:GLUTTONY by dahlig The Seven Deadly Sins: WRATH by dahlig

Thank you for staying with me throughout this time and I hope my future works won't be of any disappointment to you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was very impressed by your "7 ladies" creations done in 2006.  CONGRATS

You did a beautiful job on all seven of the deadly sins. It was quite a challenge to find critiques to give, and this is true for all of your works. All I have to say is: Where did Avarice go? =P

I really love this set, especially Vanity and Wrath. You did an amazing job with them and I hope to see more work from you soon. I'm really inspired by character painters, I'm a 3D modeler/animator myself and I always want my 3D characters to look as soft and beautiful as characters like yours. Thanks for inspiring me!!

Noty entirely sure if I agree with avarice's and gluttony's them logos. The images in the circles. But, no, I don't have better ideas... the others kind of show some natural relationship and connection (flame and lightning are burning and destructive not only for our minds, but for the nature as well) and so on...while diamond and grape...don't know, can't think of anything better, but if I need to turn picky, that's what I'd go for.

All more than perfect anyway.

Now why on earth would you think you disappoint us? You are a beautiful talent. I use your art even tho we can't tube it and that is saying somethin! Normally we don't like to use untubed art but yours is SPECIAL. Oh and what happens in 2 months and 2 weeks?

I am so glad to see that last print! It means I can buy them all when I get cash and can put them up all over my house!!

I would really love to see you take on the 4 Horsement of the Apocolypse next.
YumeAkuma Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2007
Too bad there aren't 12 deadly sins. I'd love to have a calender of them all.

Loved them all, I just recently remembered to come back and check for the last one and it much more awesome than what I was expecting. Thank you for finishing them!

I remember when i saw these pieces for the very first time. wow that was a long time ago.

A suggestion is make another serie with this but with male characters as I would love to have both female and male prints. One day I shall order something from you as I got told by my friend, he bought Vanity from you and still wanted the whole serie.
Billiardgirl Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2007
two years ago i saw one of your pictures somewhere on the net, and hav looked for it and u ever since. my god, you are such an awesome artist.

AngelicEmpyress Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
very very lovely...its neat to see people do series like these...especially the sins since im actually using the sins in a novel im writting...

now you should do the holy virtues :D
DirkBlackwood Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2007
Well, I am both happy and sad.

Happy that they are all done and look so well.

The sadness that there will not be any more (unless we make a few more sin's up).

Thank you for letting us in on the ride from start to finish.
LibertyRenegade Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2007
My sympathies toward your sorry in completing the series. :hug:
I am, however, pretty happy they're all done because I remember looking forward to seeing the next installment. :D

Przyszłe prace rozczarowujące?? O_o wać;panna żartujesz sobie. Masz taką skarbnicę pomysłˇw, wspartą umiejętnościami realizacji nawet tych najdzikszych, że nie mamy czego się obawiać !. Oglądanie i ocenianie twoich prac to czysta, niczym nie zmącona przyjemność.

Your artwork is fantastic, with your skills I'm sure you'll always be inspired. You said you're said about finishing the 7 Deadly Series graphics... how about the 7 Virtues next? that could be interesting.

Dont think we are dissapointed in your work, most would kill to have talent like that. You are truly blessed in the way you can do things like this! I am not dissapointed in you, and love your work, and I only have begun to look at it all. Im also sure everyone else here enjoys your work as well

krystaledana Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
I love your set! So glad you finished it! :) I am sure some other creative genius will strike and we will have new great things to look forward to! The only thing you could make that I would enjoy more would be a tarot set! With your artistic vision, it would be a work of pure art!
Whitefirekitsune Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2007
Your work is very inspiring. Don't be sad that you've finished your series, that just means time for more now. ANd not necissarily art, for whatever you want, be happy in your gift and keep up the beautiful work.

Congratulations, I remember when you posted the very first one. It has been a good two years by the looks through your gallery. Congrats again.
Lazeros Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
now how about the seven heavenly virtues? hehehe :hug: congrads
prttylttlktty Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can never remember if I posted here or not, but this series has really inspired me to start making dresses again. I just love the simplistic detail you used through out the series as there were hardly any hard edges in the clothing and such. Anyway, enough of my babbling; this was a joy to watch evolve and I will miss looking forward to the next in the series. I know you are not planning on doing the virtues, but do you have any other series ideas in mind?
TenX00 Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007
you surely have done an amazing work with your series of the seven deadly sins..
they're all beautiful pictures and really well done...
all the symbols you put in the pictures fits with the proposal of it...
i really like it...
im gonna take a better look into your gallery over your other arts soon...
and im gonna watch u too.. ^^
hermindseye Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Hello I love your deadly sins project and I'm no art critic or anything but I think Avarice could have used some more symbolism. But I also thought Wrath and Vanity were outstanding! You did an excellent job with the symbolism on those and it takes a special person to make violet represent something bad. I love how you juxtaposed the dead landscape against the dress and the face paint/flame hair concept for Envy.
wygirl Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2007
These are gorgeous. I am so glad you finished. I have been wanting to get a complete set of prints for almost a year now! They are so beautiful!
fallenbirdie Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007
If you miss it, you should do its opposite, the Seven Heavenly Virtues. Not very dark but, I bet you'd do a fantasic job just as you did with the Sins.

RayJ198196 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007
i :heart: ur art, and i think WRATH reminds me XD
maybe u could do the elements, horoscope or the 7 Heavenly Virtues? just a thought, if u have no ideas.
StaceyLB1987 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2007
Wow. Are there words that better describe this? No...just...WOW. Wow...
priteeboy Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah yes I was looking at all seven Deadly sins and I knew it would have taken a while BUt two Years was longer than I thought.
I'm not gonna say what Heard a million times ( By saying " those are good") But what really impressed Me was how You kept a consistent style in all of them. It looks like they were all done at the same time !
dahlig Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you very much! It was a really tough job, probably the toughest, to keep the style the same, despite the technical progress I made otherwise. EVIL!
DirtAngel221 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2007
I wanted to let you know that I loves this series. :clap: I faved all of them! Envy is my favorite, but I love al of them. Keep up the great work!
furball891 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2007
Congrats for finishing this awesome series. I think that you have done really great work with each and every one of them. I'm sure that you have inspired many artists (like me)with your work.
I hope to see more of your breath taking pictures, but still I kind of think that my favourite of your works will be these series. I can't even decide wich one of them is my favourite, but does it really matter? I think not.

So much thanks for sharing these with us. :heart:

You portray the seven deadly sins just fantastic

I can look at each one and tell which sin it is (without looking at the name on the bottom)

Keep up the fantastic work :love:

Well, I've been watching you for almost those two years, if not the whole time. The series has been beautiful, and I'm proud of you for finishing. Many more inspiring artworks may you produce. ^^

With the 300th comment; It's awesome and you are an exceptional artist! It's a wonderful set!

Do you know which of these that have been featured in Ballistic Publishing's books; "ExposÚ"-series (And if they have - I'm sure they have because I think I have seen some there - which issues have it been?)?

And I defenetivetly think you should do a similar set but for the seven virtues instead of the sins...
Marvelous work, every step of the way!
