The seven deadly sins - Lust by Kyena The seven deadly sins - Lust by Kyena
"Self control and self mastery prevent pleasure from killing the soul by suffocation. Legitimate pleasures are controlled in the same way an athlete's muscles are: for maximum efficiency without damage. Lust is the self-destructive drive for pleasure out of proportion to its worth. Sex, power, or image can be used well, but they tend to go out of control."

This is the first part of a series I am working on. Portraying the seven deadly sins with angels (sarcastic huh? ;)

100% Photoshop 7 Unfortunately I had to crop it down but here are two close ups of the actual size I was working in:

The fiery loop evokes the contrapasso for the Lustful in Dante's Inferno. They are tossed endlessly in a fiery maelstrom as they succumbed to the storm of desire. Marvelous!

This is a very beautiful piece, and I like the fact that you are going to use Angels for the Seven Deadly Sins.

You are a very talented artist. I will continue to watch your works ^_^
