Seven Deadly Sins: Greed by Procrust Seven Deadly Sins: Greed by Procrust
My 6th Deadly Sin - Greed (lat. Avaritia) is finally before you! It's the only one sin among seven others without special appearance or emotions, most prosaic and, of course, in daily life we meet with Greed at every turn, more often than with others. Corruption, money-grabbing, financial pyramids etc, etc - are tricks of Greed. Increase of greed and cruel people on the Earth, according to Christianity, is the evidence of near Antichrist's advent by the way.
As I said before Greed doesn't posess special kinds so on this piece I had to resort to the help of details. Shackles and absence of wings symbolize the attachment of greedy people to their property, to the earthy things. But this, as one would think, inconvenience is covered by light silk which symbolize pleasures of gorgeous life. And for the first time skulls on my piece definitely belongs to the current sin's victims! You can see golden crowns on their teeth!
Hope you like it!
And don't forget to look through the gallery of my personal "7 Deadly Sins" consultant - Astrkv [link]

I admire your work. I admire, the symbolism in this. I didn't think of the "wings" part, because Greed is so attached to the material. You're really inspiring me to draw the 7 deadly sins again. I like your concepts and idea of your take on the sins. It's like, "Wow, I never thought of that". But your description, I wish I didn't read it first. I sometimes forget that art has symbols in it. So, now that I'm off to the last piece of your sins, I will read the signs, before reading the description.

I'm sooo in love with this illustration!! Absolutely amazing work! I'm interested in buying it, I want to use it in one of my flyers... How much an extended licence would cost me? If you don't want to answer here, please send me a note :)

Hi!) I was so surprised to see your request in vk.com so here is my quick answer :)
I'm still don't sure what does extended licence mean... Can you explain?
It would be great to discuss the issue in vk.com, not here, cause I spend much more time there)

If the chains were golden or jewel-encrusted, it would have come across as Greed a little better. Still a great work. He looks content in his chains, which is the point, right?

Heheh... Funny how I stopped checking your art after Gluttony. XD Biggest mistake I ever made... (and i still can't eat ice-cream, thank you very much XD) I personally like this one best. It might just be the chain. OTL

WHY?

WHY ARE RUSSIANS SO FUCKING ARTISTIC?

FUCK.

Not only Russians! I personally think that Chinese people are the most "FUCKING ARTISTIC" guys :eager:

Ah, well, that is true.

But Russians are bull-headed artists, which make them funny, which make them awesome. Then again, Russians are just awesome in general. XD

You're welcome. ^^; I'm glad you finished your project! It looks awesome.

Hot damn... I wish I could draw like that. :iconcryforeverplz:

The cloth on his hips make me think of a values usually connected with femme fatals. This Sin of yours can lure, can enchant and make others fall pray.
Though I hate greed as such, I find your work beautiful :)
