The Fallen Angel of Lust by WingsUnchained The Fallen Angel of Lust by WingsUnchained

This is the first in my series of the seven "Fallen Angels of Sin." I have always been interested in the reason behind why the Catholics consider some sins "deadly" and others not, and the Seven Deadly Sins are an interesting topic for me, so I thought I would create a fallen angel graphic for each of the sins.

Lust or lechery (or in Latin, "luxuria") is an intense desire. It is usually thought of as excessive sexual wants, however the word was originally a general term for desire. Therefore lust could involve the intense desire of money, fame, or power as well. In Dante's Inferno, unforgiven souls of the sin of lust are blown about in restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control to their lustful passions in the earthly life.

CRITIQUES ARE WELCOME. However, I would ask that you do not judge this piece based on its realism and how much it looks like a real photo. When I make graphics, I intend for them to look manipulated in Photoshop. My graphics are more meant for the message that they send and to be pretty to look at rather than to pass for an actual photo. With that in mind, please critique away!
