There are so many people who have tried their hands at this theme before me, I know. I still feel this is a great theme, so I'm trying to do it my way.
While I have read what is "usually associated" with all the sins - in this case the colour green and the dog - I chose not to follow this traditional approach, but instead try and find out what comprises the sins for me. I do not want to give you my whole thought process (this is a bit too personal, I'd say), just a little bit of insight maybe:
Envy is wanting what others have - not only wealth, but also power, status, happyness, experiences, living arrangements, looks,...
The envious person will always seek what others have and always be of the opinion that that is what is rightfully theirs anyway
They are so busy looking at what others have that they can never enjoy anything on their own
Everything around them looks "peachy" to them, if only they could take part.
Great collecyion of seven deadly sins. It's something different. Isaw some arts with that theme but as you wrote- you do your own- and it's really good. I like this art0 it's very clear and you had nice idea!
I like this. I'm struggling with envy (not jealousy) right now. Being the Scorpio that I am I should be jealous but its really Envy. I wish for one thing and it constantly escapes me no matter what I DON'T do.
This is very nice and I love how you blended everything smoothly with the eye. I wish I could get the blend modes down to a I don't know formula.
Masterpiece as usual!!!!!! Kepp going I like the way the eye wants everything it sees its a way of how envy ppl like all they see! Very good simoblism and extraordinary interpretation of envyness Thanks for this amazing work Mind regards Mistique

I'm usually a fan of your work and look forward to every peace you offer... but somehow this one just doesn't cut it for me. The composition and many different pictures make it cluttered. I hope my comment isn't offending. I'm still looking forward to your work! <3
it doesn't offend me. It's not one of my all time faves either, but I felt it fit the theme rather well, including the cluttered look - envious people are rarely satiesfied with looking at one thing they think they need.
