7 Deadly Sins - Lust by elestrial 7 Deadly Sins - Lust by elestrial
Compelled by the burning desire that consumes her

Made for a project at school on the 7 Deadly Sins. This is the final one of the 7-part series. These pictures actually go together in one long picture (42 inches long) that has already been finished...I'm just splitting them up for submitting here.

Symbolism
Light blue is actually the color for lust, but I think a purple-red works better. Red roses mean love...hearts are red...works better than light blue.
The roses in the picture represent love (usually a symbol for lust) and they are burning because they represent the burning feelings of love that she has.

The setting is based on the book Dante's Inferno: a dead, desolate place.

All of the seven deadly sins in my series are women because:
A) Women are thought to be more "sinful" for over hundreds of years now. Don't get all woman-activist on me for saying that, I'm a woman myself - and no, I don't believe that "women are more sinful." I think people are people; neither sex is more sinful than the other.
B) There are more women stock providers then men on deviantart. Sorry guys, but there's just not enough of you for me to use!

Another great piece and I liked that you explained the symbolism of the colors as well. Isn't their some ole tail of a ghostly lady who would wave a red scarf outside the window of men and would cause them to follow her?
