Envy by PixieCold Envy by PixieCold
I want to be the prettiest of nature's creation...


This is the first picture of a series I am planning: The seven deadly sins. This is the sin envy.

It is a collab between me and my brother sanguisgelidus You should really watch him, if you don't already do! ^^

I really hope you like this picture, I spend so much time and effort on it! Favs and comments/critiques are sooo highly appreciated!! :heart: :heart:

Originally a watercolor-paint, overworked with Photoshop CS4. You can download it and use it as background for your handhelds, if you want! :)


And to my watchers: I am soo sorry for the re-re-submit... ^^' But there was a little problem yesterday, so I had to delete it once more... I hope you aren't annoyed to see this once more in your inbox! xD :hug: :heart:

I have to say this is one of the most impressive things I have seen in a very long time. The colors are stunning in fact I thought for a few moments this was a photograph. Silly me. But the bright colors and low tones just work so well togeather. And then the dead bird and blood just add an interesting twist to this already amazing piece. And the eyes on this girl goodness the details and glow I just all around love this. I look forward to seeing more things like this from you. So great job my friend.

Das Bild ist wirklich der Wahnsinn.
Die Farben sind unglaublich gut kombiniert, es ergeben sich tolle Kontraste und das Zusammenspiel von Licht und Schatten lassen das Ganze nochmals lebendiger wirken.
Das Motiv ist richtig richtig gut getroffen, die leichte Asymmetrie der Lippen und die Sommersprossen verleihen dem Charakter etwas Natürliches. Und sie sieht wirklich unglaublich schön aus!
Und dann erst die Idee dahinter! Man erkennt erst auf den zweiten Blick, was es mit dem Pfau auf sich hat und dass sie mitunter auch etwas Bedrohliches, Gefährliches ausstrahlt.

Insgesamt finde ich die Idee klasse und deine Interpretation der Todsünde Neid ist erfrischend neu. Die Farbwahl haut einen um und der Blick aus diesen eiskalten blauen Augen nimmt einen echt gefangen...

Ich bin riesig gespannt, wie du die anderen Todsünden darstellst!!!

You can link to another deviant's profile by typing :dev[place user name here]. So, for instance, you could type :dev sanguisgelidus: without the space and end up with =sanguisGelidus.
Or you could simply display the user's icon by typing :icon sanguisgelidus:, like so: :iconsanguisgelidus:.

This will allow people to quickly and easily check out your brother's profile.

Rhi-R Featured By Owner May 5, 2012
This might sound strange, but I adore the wonkyness of her mouth. It's like it's caught halfway between a cold smirk and something much sadder - which encapsulates envy pretty well, I think. :+favlove:
