Another throw back contest for y'all this week. Much like witht eh Western Zodiac contest we did a few weeks ago, Jeff ran a couple of contests based around the seven deadly sins (which btw one of which was my first ever contest entry 😉 ) so I think it'll be interesting to see how people take on this one and how people have improved if they were around to have entered first time around. In case anyone doesn't know what the Seven Deadly Sins consist of, they are Lust, Greed, Gluttony, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride. Now, the idea here is to represent one or more of these sins through a character or a scene. You can do more than one in one picture, but ti has to be obvious which sin you are trying to represent. Also, a word of warning, I know lust is on that list, that does not give free pass to be explicit. PG-13 please.
As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.
Envy, the green-eyed monster
Misery McFee, representing lust, is a high-end escort who uses the heightened desires of her clients to completely drain them of their life energy, and makes serious bank while doing so.
So this one is a monster who dwells in a cave, at the end of her tail is a woman who she uses to attract her victims into the cave. LUST:
AMON: Demon Lord of Wrath
Warmonger can infect his victims with a blind, violent rage
LUCIFER: Demon Lord of Pride
Who welcomes, with open arms, the mighty and powerful to take the throne of power and the crown of glory by which they may rule over the multitudes.
Can you guess which is which? 😛
He’s just a pig
Envy: Colour representation – Green; Animal symbol – Dog; Punishment – Constant freezing water
Gluttony: Colour representation – Orange; Animal symbol – Pig (mounted behind her); Punishment – Forced to eat snakes, rats, and toads
BEELZEBUB: Demon Lord of Gluttony
Deep in the bowels of Hell lies a vast and endless lake of the most vile and noxious filth and excrement imaginable. Here resides Beelzebub: Demon Lord of Gluttony who spends eternity feasting on the souls of gluttonous sinners and then spewing them back out into the filth.
Entry #1 – Lust
Julie as Miss July represents LUST
Entry #2 – Envy
Evy is positively green with ENVY over Blue and Sunny’s
Entry #3 – Wrath
From the earliest caveman comes WRATH
Entry #4 – Sloth
I had entered Sloth last time, but a friend said he wasn’t slothful enough, so I upped the anty on him.
David Harris Templeton III was a rich kid who was raised by strict parents: a judge father, a doctor mother and a senetor grandfather.
Once he got away from them to college he just started to say WTF and started drinking, smoking and watching TV all the time, paying other kids to do his homework.
His true nature of being a live-for-the-moment “moon” satyr manifested.
Entry #5 – Gluttony
I think it says it all by itself. Although I did used Pepto Bismoll pink for the background 😀
My version of Lust. I went for the true demon sin instead of a person that embodies it so i hope you like it since it took a couple of hours to make with the custom wings and armor 🙂
Hopefully i will have time to make Wrath but since im busy with a lot of things these days (Homework, school, renovating my room)i will probably not make it 🙁
An update to my previous entry.
this one was kinda dumb but whatever i tried, gluttony
Here is my scene for Lust:
My character for Wrath:
My character for Gluttony:
Envy: he takes the form of humans he is envious of:
Hope I’m not too late for this contest, but here’s my submission for Gluttony: Alvus (one of a series of ancient warlocks who turned into variably Lovecraftian abominations after signing up with the Darkness). Hope you enjoy him/it, feel free to comment. Have a good one 🙂
p.s.: hope the link works, as I haven’t entered a competition on here in possibly a year 😮
Ok guys this weeks contest is closed. The poll will be up shortly.
