7 Deadly Sins by mailorderchild 7 Deadly Sins by mailorderchild
I FINALLY GOT THIS PIECE DONE!!
It's taken me a while due to procrastination and lack of stock. I'm totally open to comments and suggestions. My text tool has NOT been working with me at all so some of the text looks kinda pixelated. Damned text.
But the idea of the 7 Deadly Sins has always been a favorite subject to me. The movie Seven was a HUGE inspiration for this piece. Along with Dante's Inferno, and Paradise Lost. Beautiful works.
Well I did use a TON of stock in this piece, time to give credit where credit is due!
I hope you all enjoy!
Remember! Comments and Suggestions are totally welcome! I'm always hoping to improve my work.

I was actually thinking about doing it with pen and ink or paint on canvases! :) I could just use your face if you wanna supply a reference picture. No elaborate poses needed. ^^ 
I don't do photo manipulations anymore, I just haven't got the time for it anymore. :)

Awesome idea. And very well done.
Admitedly I've never known anyone to be gluttonous over grapes, but that's by the by :lol:

:iconmailorderchild:
mailorderchild Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2008
Well, to be honest I couldn't find ANY stock on the site that showed a woman eating ANYTHING but a lolly pop. So I turned it into grapes. I wasn't really awesome at maniping at the time so I couldn't turn it into cake or anything so I tried to make it a bit weirder by putting steak and chocolates into the background image. :giggle:

Stock has improved quite a bit since then so I'm slightly tempted to redo this. But that involves sitting in front of the PC :lol:

mailorderchild Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2008
Omg yes, I spent weeks on this one. I think most of my time and effort went into Gluttony. Especially because at the time it was SO hard to find stock for a woman putting something in her mouth. It was originally a lollypop! :lol:

I'm glad you dig it. :heart:

My gallery is pretty varried as well so I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy your gallery. :D

May I modify this by putting my YouTube troupe's tag across the top, then use it as our background on our page? You will be credited - I'll put your name in a corner.
Mind you, I'll have to put the modified version in my own deviantart gallery. That OK?

The thing is, this is made with stock from Deviantart.com. By using stock images I don't think I can allow it to be used outside of dA without their permission.
I think I could only let it be used as long as you're not getting money for it. I'm gunna ask around I know a couple of the gallery directors and such, so we'll see if it's okay.
If it were up me I'd let you use it. I'm flattered :)

:iconkirei-kuro:
kirei-kuro Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2008
No, no, no! There's no money in it. I just want to tweak it, then use it as my YouTube background. And when I say tweak, I mean put my YouTube group's name across the top: SevenSinsProductions. Not as if to say "we made this", just to show it's our page.
I wanted to ask because, like I said, I'd have to put it in my own dA gallery because YouTube only takes URL links for personalized background images.

You could always upload the image to photobucket as well.
I asked my "connections" and they said that as long as you're not getting paid for it then it's no big deal really Most people allow their stock to be used outside of DA as long as it's not like.. getting money for it.
Tweaking doesn't bother me as long as you make a link to me in the description like.. ZOMG THIS AWESOME TOTALLY HAWT LADY MADE THIS kinda.. jk. :giggle:

Go ahead and use it I'll note the stock people (If they're still even on dA this piece is older than dirt) and I'll let you know if anybody cares.

The only request is that you blur out the ladies face in Envy, the lady in the wedding dress. The person producing the stock doesn't have a 3rd party release for it so if you just blur out the face it should be okay. I think the rest of the stock accounts are dead it's been so long since I made this piece. :lol:
