Seven Deadly Sins by lyssaspex Seven Deadly Sins by lyssaspex
Taste the rainbow.

Done for Color Illustration class taught by Alvin Pettit, our assignment was to portray the the seven deadly sins any way we wanted.

I could of just done one piece with all the sins in it, but being the masochist that I am, I decided to do seven separate pieces.

In Illustrator.

I wanted to go for a 1920s Art Deco feel, with different women in different rooms that "represent" the sin they're portraying.

Envy - Room of Pin-Ups
Sloth - Room of Pillows
Vanity - Room of Mirrors
Lust - Room of Sensual Statues
Gluttony - Room of Desserts
Greed - Room of Treasure
Wrath - Room of Shatters

This took a lot longer than I expected, but I'm thankful it's finally done. I could've done a bit more with Vanity and Lust, but maybe I'll go back to those another time.
I think my favorite has to be Gluttony. Doing all the ice cream and pastries were fun :3

But I'm not doing vector illustration again for a looooong time. Unless recommended.

What punishes do you like more for seven deadly sins? I mean, because there are difference between Purgatorio and Christianity

Gluttony looks so cute tbh

Stunning work

Interesting designs, for each sin. They're both rather cute and accurate. Plus the colouring's very fitting, for each sin.

Vanity's my favourite.

I really like what you've shown here. By putting the sins in their story telling environments of similar color scheme and body positions, you really captured the humanity of these downfalls. Very few of my friends did not give a perfect imitation of your Envy illustration. Great work and congratulations on completing your vision *diligence award*!

Tbh, I think I have ALL the sins! (regretfully)
Lust: Like all other girls out there, I have a guilty pleasure for reading smutty fanfics, especially the ones that are so passionate and poetic. Just thinking of them make me heat up!
 Greed: As a cosplayer, I do tend to want to buy a lot of things in order to make my costumes. A lot of the times, I use my parents accounts to order stuff online. Sometimes I lie too that I don't have any money when someone asks me if I do.
Sloth: Let's be real here, NONE of us like to do our homework or study for finals. And I'm not really afraid to express my opinions about it. Whenever I get back home from school, I immediately turn on my computer instead of doing homework.
 Gluttony: I used to eat so much junk food such as chips with sour cream, until I began a weight-loss diet. But then after that, I constantly eat a few snacks after school.
Envy: Sadly, I always have been low on self esteem for a long time now. I often don't like my mexican heritage, my somewhat fat appearance, and my brown hair matching with my eyes. Sometimes I wish I had paler skin and was as thin as a toothpick. I really wish I had blonde or red hair with blue eyes.
Wrath: As an introvert, I get quite annoyed by loud people in class, especially the ones where they won't shut up. And when my beagle begins to bark, I immediately have the urge to punch or spank her.
Pride: I'm a well known artist with some people with both my family and my friends at school. Whenever I see someone with crappy-looking drawings, I'll admit, I silently laugh at them and think "Is that really the best you can do? I'm better by one in a million!" (Sorry)

These are absolutely amazing. The artwork is just incredible. I am so jealous of your skills and hope to one day do artwork like this.
Kaboom82896 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2015
of all of these, I'm probably a combination on sloth and gluttony. THANKS A LOT, YOUTUBE!!!!!!

Oh wow, this is awesome!
EzlerRes Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2015
I wanted to puke seeing gluttony with a room full of sweets. Having too much sweet stuff not only gives you diabetes, but also damages your eyes (the blood vessels around your eyes are very small and sensitive, adding too much sugar will cause those blood vessels to burst, and once they DO burst, prohibit their recovery) and your brain (although the brain uses up around 47% of our entire body's amount of sugar, having too much would damage brain cells)......

*Facepalms* Ugh,

Sweet. Things. Do. NOT. Cause. Diabetes!
zigaudrey Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh lala! Love this!

I feel sorry for Envy.
Sloth is still lazy! :D
Lust get me the attention! ;P
Wrath's color scheme...Still a raging goth.

Wrath: I'm going to kill them all.

Lust: This room is perfect for me and you.

Gluttony: I must eat more this room is perfectly stocked with food.

Greed: I'm never spending a dime.

Envy: They're so much better than me.

Sloth: I'm to tired I'll do it later.

Vanity: I'm too beautiful for you.

Me: Enjoy your stay weird girls.

My favorite would be gluttony. Most because I eat a lot and I have a huge sweet!

This picture is so lovely! GLUTTONY FOREVER! CUPCAKE LUB 
FlutterBhy Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I've realized i'm most like envy because i just think i'm too skinny D:
Wyldstylez Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2016  Hobbyist Artist
I think I'm too fat :( (Sad) 
TheRavenousRaven Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014
This is awesome.  

Sloth, Vanity, Lust and Greed are sexy.

Gluttony looks cute and she has a sweet tooth (for some reason, she reminds me of Ed from Cowboy Bebop), so we would definitely get on.

Wrath looks seriously pissed off, wouldn't want to rattle her cage!

And I seriously want to give Envy a big hug right now.

well done good job going in faves!
Tammydy Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
does envy need a big busted b****? or a hug?
artificialgarden Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
a hug
Warden-Shinigami Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2013
The chicks are hot, and the room of gluttony looks delicious.

I see the booty.
I want the booty.
MrPicklesHtf Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
It's impossible not to suffer from one or more of these.
Looks great!!
TimeGhost823 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012
It's Pride, not Vanity
Regiking Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, I think that Vanity is merely a more feminine way of saying, they ARE all female in this, anyway.
bluerosemonster9987 Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
there the same thing
ShaneDSE2 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
No, Vanity and Pride are different. Having pride is not always the same as vanity. Pride in work, being, in others, and what not is different than vanity. They are not interchangeable.
catchingskies Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I like how you portrayed Wrath as a rebellious teenager. :D
Renee-Niels Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You can't help but feel a little sorry for Envy...
Warden-Shinigami Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2013
I want to give her a hug.
Renee-Niels Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Poor thing... <8C

The ones I really like are: Sloth,Vanity and Greed.

This is wicked.
demonnatalie Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2011
i love it and i love how you made them all have a certain room that matches their sin
Mitsu-Chiruno Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2011  Student General Artist
Gluttony looks so happy in this picture, I think this is the happiest interpretation I've seen so far :'D You did a great job on all of them, especially Vanity (my fave) :'P
Gigicom Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011
these sins are fantastic
you drew them in great way
I like sloth the best but all of them are amazing
a-northern-lad Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Love it. Wrath looks like a classic angry dyke.

i like it
tresdjndjed Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011
What I like about your version of the seven sins is they are as I would imagine them.... with the exception of envy... all these chicks are having a last. No sad brooding faces. No deep thoughtful eyes.... the sins in form and showing their reason for being so damn hard to stay away from... Love my sins
Thank you for sharing this with us, thank your teacher for assigning it ;)
Omegaestroyer12 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2011
my favs are gluttony, wrath, and envy. i have good reasons for all three
TMNTGrrl97 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2010
Sloth is the same as lazyness.... am i right? O.o
lyssaspex Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2010
Yes. It means to be disinclined to do any work or exertion.
TMNTGrrl97 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2010
oh, Thank you. :D

Ivé been wondering what is meant, Beacuse I tried to translate it into swedish, but it could not. :(

But now i know, thanks :3
