The Seven Deadly Sins-Envy by Sugargrl14 The Seven Deadly Sins-Envy by Sugargrl14
First off, I think this one is my favorite of the Sins so far :heart:

Definition of Envy: A feeling of discontent and resentment aroused by and in conjunction with desire for the possessions or qualities of another.

I've been looking around - and I see a lot of people portray Envy as being Jealous and that the words can be interchangeable. But I was reading online and read that those are two different distinct emotions. You can read here about it: [link]

I decided to portray Envy as being sad, because when I think of Envy, I think of being unhappy. With Envy, you want what someone has, what ever it may be, and feeling that way will make you depressed about it. Ok, I'm done babbling xD Just wanting people to understand why I decided to have Envy sad, with a little mix of hatred too.

The "tears" are fake, I hope they look ok. I tried really hard with them, so please be kind :aww:

This is really pretty! I want to ask... May I use this photo on tumblr? I came up with a small sort of poem about envy, and it would be a lot better if I had a picture. Thank you :heart:

I "Envy" this shot... That's why I :+fav: it! :)

Well now the main comment: Although the skin color (edited or not) is the predominant one, green tones play a very important role, particularly on a black background which is wonderful to me... Indeed: I find that green and black go very well together.

The expression is awesome, fitting perfectly with the definition of the word: "Envy"... But not straigh out, I'd say in a more subtle way... Oh really awesome, wonderful work :nod:
