Angels Of Sin - Lust by Afina79 Angels Of Sin - Lust by Afina79
Angels are known to be everywhere, when we need them most, when we least expect them. We also know of the Fallen Angels. Those no longer bright with heavens light but with something far more twisted. Now, we know of the Angels Of Sin. Fallen Angels, each dedicated to one of the Seven Deadly Sins. They are meant to tempt us and they do the job so very well.

This is my take on the Seven Deadly Sins. It is not a religious statement. This is just fantasy and art. Take what you will of them.

The Angel Of Lust

Lust is a craving for the pleasures of the flesh. It is surprisingly often associated with the color blue and not red as many believe. The Angel Of Lust is sent to tempt men and women alike to give into this want and desire.

Rendered in Daz Studio.

If there angels and commiting the sin of lust then wouldn't that make them demons.

Not necessarily. A demon can be an evil being, presence, person, force or passion. There are fallen angels that differ from demons.

the reason people assiosiate it with red is because the original angel was said to always carry a red scarf and tie those around the souls fully converted, because of this red scarf red became a lustfull color where it actually isnt

Hey there!

I used a crop of this image in my Spectrum of Art avatar entry! You can see it here: [link]

I have credited everyone fully in the link.

I hope it's OK with you that I used this. It was a perfect piece for what I was trying to convey.

If it's not OK, please let me know immediately and I'll make it right! :-)

Thanks!

Normally I would ream someone from left to right for using an art piece that isn't stock in an image but this time I will make an exception. I grant permission this one time. I would advise however that you refrain from using anyone's art piece that isn't deemed as stock in any image. It is considered art theft, credits given or not. You need to get permission before hand so that you don't risk the piece being removed.

I hope you understand that I am not trying to be harsh but giving you a warning so you don't risk your account being disabled or worse.

I love the contrast between the innocent expression of the man and the foxy expression of Lust. You do such a great job of expressing the Sins. Out of curiosity, are you planning to do the Seven Cardinal Virtues after these?

I will be doing all of them, 2 down, 5 to go. I think Envy is actually going to be the move difficult one. Right now it is a toss up between Gluttony and Vanity to which is next.

Thankies and yup yup, trying to stay away form the traditional feathered wings of angels since I am trying to depict fallen angels. They don't get pretty white fluffy wings, hehe.

You're so welcome! Oh of course! And fluffy black wings are still fluffy and soft and not accurate for fallen angels either. :giggle:

Only time I saw feathery wings are right for "fallen" angels was twice. The Prophecy depicted it well since the angels were not completely fallen and then in the magna Angel Sanctuary.

Really good movie, there are I think 4 but only the first 3 are worth watching. In the first one guy who played Stryder in LOTR's plays Satan. LOL

Wow, can you say eye candy? This is i by far one of the best i have seen i think, the colour and tones are so nicely balanced and positioning and textures really add to the mood.

gorgeous work can't wait to see more.
