Artwork Description

More of those demon guys, I've got to admit I'm quite fond of the one on the right. He is the demon for sloth, and is carrying a little bit of extra weight shall we say. It made him very interesting to paint. Hope you like them..... Thank you for your visit.

Thanks Kirsi, he was so much fun to paint. In my mind it was easy to imagine him being all sweaty and smelly and I really wanted to be able to wobble him. hmmm that sounds wrong! But I'm sure you know what I mean.

Of course you're right, he would work very well for gluttony. I'm given a great deal of freedom on these cards and I guess my mind was going in the direction of his almost total inactivity. I added the bowl to cast a second shadow and give a little more interest to the image as a whole, maybe having it filled with some sort of food wasn't such a good idea. Thank you for your comment.

Thanks Malcolm, the one thing that I think helps more than anything, Is doing a tonal underpainting. I find colour really confuses things at the beginning so I try to avoid making any decisions until I have a better idea of lighting and composition. Another thing that helps is keeping alpha masks of the individual elements so they can be selected at any time and adjusted, even after you have flattened your layers. Cheers my friend.

good ones Matt! The fatty is brilliant in all his Greatness.. love the snot and strong light that reflects on his body. Very nice!

I love them both, quite expressive and detailed.
But Belphegor looks like gluttony, more than sloth, to me. Especially with the bowl of food in front of him.

Great work and great characters, both of them. You do achieve impressive lighting effects in all your pieces.

Art at its best.
