Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath by Procrust Seven Deadly Sins: Wrath by Procrust
Finally, I've brought myself to drawing of the Deadly Sins series, which is going to include 7 artworks - Pride, Gluttony, Envy, Wrath, Lust, Sloth and Greed. It seems that this work is going to take all my free time for 0.5-1 year, oh my...
Well, ok, now the first sin - Wrath (lat. IRA) in before you! Somebody could find his face not so wrathful as it should be, but there was no aim to express the sin as the emotion at least on this one. Anyway I tried to show it by his pose - he grabs you by his strong hands and you can't escape as when you are foam with anger you cannot cool the heat. And as I can judge I made him stern enough to associate with Wrath.
Hope you like it!
Wait for the next six sins)

PS: The quality of the picture is awfull here on DA, but what to do?((((

Also you can see another sin

I just came across your work by accident. It made me stop and pay attention to what I was looking at. It took me a minute to see each sin except for the obvious Gluttony and Lust.  I was so drawn to your work though that I felt the need to try to see through your eyes what you were thinking while trying to express these sins. An artist A true one anyways in my eyes is one who can stop a person to look at something and wonder about it. Thats what you did here in my opinion. In looking further Pride was pretty easy to figure out by the way figure carrried himself with confidence and the peacocks in the background. Then when I looked a little deeper the coloring in the background of your work also gave great hints to each picture, example the green in Envy, the black in Wrath and even the yellow in Sloth. Greed took me a minute more to see however I believe the chains that bind you is what I saw that linked it together for me. I usually dont bother to express my feelings about things I come across on the internet but you caught my attention with your work so much so that I thought I should let you know. Your work is beautiful and I will look for more from you. Im not an artist of any kind by I do appreciate beautiful things and your work is that so thank you for catching my eye with your work. If you can't tell I'm not much of a writer either, sorry.

The expression and the pose is amazing! You can really feel the emotion, boiling under the surface. Awesome job!

Great art!

Nice detail in his legs! He's wearing greaves (or whatever this legs armour is called)! ^^
WraythSkitzifrenik Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
He looks like he's scheming. Letting his anger boil and fester inside his soul. Wrath doesn't always mean bared teeth and screaming. Well done!
TeiHakuto Featured By Owner May 6, 2012
kakoi ^_^ it's good that you explained the lack of emotion in his face, but isn't that wrath is like anger or rage to the nth power? so it should be more...intense, for lack of a better word. and the lifting of the arms is not enough for me, either, since you -explained- or -justified- why you did such, when the image should speak for itself. perhaps if the hands were more claw-like or if it were reaching for the viewers looking at the picture?
sayDieluna Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2012
nice. :) WRATH --> raw emotion in its darkest form.
girlgunner Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Wrath; in it's best form, it is rightous anger towards an injustice, at it's worst, it's just lashing out at everyone.
icy7 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Such amazing artwork! :)
I absolutely love the detail you've put into these, especially down to the body hair on the arms and legs. I love how you portray them, they all stand so proudly :D

I've decided to put my comment oof your "Seven Deadly Sins" collection on the one I actually have the most troubel with, since i couldnt find one i like anymore the the rest.
Here's what i love about the whole collection: You keep it simple, not putting to much in anyone, and that you also had a tying feature n each to connect them. Like the Crown of thorns, the Skulls, and the blank eye's. I also really like your Artist style.
Here what I like most about each independantly:
Wrath: the color in the sky, and that he's wearing armor. (war analogy, where most wrath takes place, very cool.)
Lust: The scarcity of cloth yet still somewhat modest, and the Position of the woman, both willing, and... not.
Sloth: For some reason I really like that he has the instrument, so he actually has something to do, not just sit around, like most people portray Sloth.
Gluttony: Obviously, that he's fat, and not slim, muscled and pretty.
Envy: This one kind of threw me, there was nothing to say "envy" but upon further thought, thats what makes people envious, they have nothing. Brilliantly subtle.
Greed: The chains, I dont know the fact that he's just bound in anyway... and the ruins in the distance.
Pride: The peacocks! Oh my god! they are just... to perfect, the most "proud" birds, its obvious, but still.
Some minor notes that annoy me, (but obviously you might of had a reason for not doing them):
The emotions on most of the faces seems kind of bland. not as strong as I vision these powerful drives, and Deadly vices. Also that there seems to be a lack of... just... "Artistic love" for the drawings. Please stop me if I got that wrong, I'm mostly a Writer, and I cant truely understand your love for your work. but there seems to me, that there is a little void were the artist puts him or herself in the art they are portraying.
I'm sorry if I affended you. But still know I Absolutely love the collection, and I am glad you made them! Thankyou for the work!

It's ok) Thanks for such detailed comment, I like when people writt more that two words! ;) Glad you like them all)
Demon-of-Sins666 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012
I do love them all, and I'm glad you understand what i said. I understand sometimes its hard to hear critisism, but most, or at least mine, is just meant to try and help you be better. (not saying it would, thats up to you, but i should put my thoughts out there!)
eris-11 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2012  Student Writer
My exact first thought was: "Oh my God, that is just. . ." And I didn't even finish it IN MY HEAD!
Really though, stunning artwork. It captures wrath perfectly. At first I was all, "Why isn't the bkgd red?" But that was only for a second---the darkness adds so much to the sin that's being conveyed.

rage burns with the intensity of a thousand suns..... wrath burns with a frozen flame, slowly and surely overtaking your mind, until its to late

wow i cant wait to see them all
sevenofeleven Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2011
Looks great.

This one does not say Wrath to me, the other sins had objects with them.
Gluttony had ice cream, Sloth had a mandolin, maybe Wrath should hold something broken or have broken things around him.

Maybe a broken sword or something precious that is broken. When you are wrathful you break things and when the wrath goes away you are left with broken things and they can't be fixed or if they can be they will never be the same. When I say things I also mean non physical stuff too.

Apologies if this seems offensive, I do not mean to offend.
Just to talk about this.
