Seven Deadly Sins by Procrust Seven Deadly Sins by Procrust
Well, as I promised, I mixed all my Deadly Sins together on one piece! Don't see the point to write descriptions, you can read what I think about every sin on separate artworks (see the links beneath).

Hope you like it! Thank that people who waited for every new sin for all the time I've been drawing them :love: Hope I didn't disappoint you!
Please, don't forget to look through the gallery of my personal "7 Deadly Sins" consultant - Astrkv [link]

Here you can see every sin with description

And Gluttony: [link]
(DA can show only 6 pictures, unfortunatelly)

Music theme: Deathstars Virtue To Vice
Add a Comment:
It is by sheer technique a really good piece, but the main problem with it is the lack of difference between each Sin sans Wrath and Gluttony. The lack of variety is the downfall of this piece and if you ever returned to this piece or similar theme, more variety would be in order to increase the impact. It's difficult to distinguish Pride and Envy for example - they are drawn only with some differences. Another problem that inhibits the impact of your vision so to speak is the lack of variation amongst facial expressions that the Sins are showing.

The prime improvement that can be easily achieved is more diversity amongst the individual design for each sin. The symbolism connected with each sin could also be elaborated upon, making it more distinct or indeed visible - you use them yes, but they aren't always obvious to all. Greed as such is indeed a prisoner of his own desire but is it obvious on the first glance what it's referring to? Probably not without being used to looking for metaphors in art or literature they come in contact with.

Oddly enough, the women for lust is slightly out of place - if not for pride's placement, she would become the focus of the picture by the virtue of being unique amongst seven angels - even then, she still draws attention away from the theme of the art. On the other hand, Gluttony by far is your best character design on the flip side - it is distinct enough without extreme reference.

Your technique is something I would envy were I a artist ... it is in fact brilliant. I have to say it makes the impact greater than it would be otherwise. Your drawing style as well as the actual colour filling was very good indeed, which leaves me nothing to pick at - sans you alternating to a different style slightly, I can't help you there.

The idea itself is rather original as most people do not create Seven Sins as angels, but rather normal humans, making your concept fresh in a sense.

Also, Deathstars are awesome. Did you like "Motherzone"?

I love these! Such a cool change from having the seven deadly sins always portrayed as women!

Hi Procrust,

I'm a member of a Christian ministry called Holy Spirit Interactive based in the Middle East (UAE) whose founder is Aneel Aranha. 

Aneel brings out a magazine each quarter with a print run of 1,000 copies and although it is given out for free, it is a quality publication.

His next cover feature is on The Seven Deadly Sins and we have came across this artwork of yours on the 7 deadly sins and I found it depicted very well. 

I am writing to you to ask if we can use this artwork in the publication. We can't afford to pay you anything, because like I said the magazine is free, but I promise to send you a copy of the magazine the moment it is out.

Please let me know. If you permit us to use the artwork, we will need the images in a little higher resolution so that we can reproduce them properly.

Do check out Aneel on His facebook page is

Kind regards,
Zenia Noronha

Looking at this, it made me wonder... What would you envision as the Seven Holy Virtues?
