It has been a little bit since I announced Toxic Transgression. Since then I’ve been working on a lot of different stuff. Concepts, ideas, how to basically put everything together, just hoping it all comes out right. Most people would probably think I’m going in the wrong direction with this post. Because I’m going to show my Gluttony demon, as the way I have it now. Things could change over time, but I like what I have so far.
All these were sculpted in Sculptris, the more I use it I think to myself what a great program, especially considering that it is free. Over the past few weeks, I’ve found myself doing a ton of concepts, then scrapping it not long after. I didn’t like that one, lets try again, nope, still don’t like it.
The basic thing was looking at the particular sin, Gluttony, over eating, purging on food, and fat. I read about it, the different ideas with the sin. Every sin is supposedly got a color, animal, and name. Its funny reading some of the things I have ran into, I found a site that described each sin.
Gluttony is associated with the color orange, and the pig as the animal. It also said the reason you do it was because, you were weaned improperly as an infant. Your punishment in hell will be force-fed to eat rats, snakes, and toads. I found all that pretty interesting, along with the names of the demons. Beelzebub being the most common of Gluttony, which I’ve ran up on a few different names. I’m not sure if that is correct, which I don’t mean to be correct, I’m never going meet the demon, or do I ever want to.
One of the reasons I named my blog Explore Animation, was just that. Explore different ideas, and not do the so so usual, or at least whats to be expected. This little creature you see in these pics are indeed Gluttony. Yes, it’s not fat, it looks more like a skeleton of sorts, with a ton of horns, and just a mouth. I was thinking of a different form of the sin, maybe a lower ranking demon of Gluttony.
Although it isn’t finished, its a start, I like it, and I’m going with it. I also realize that just by looking at it, one would not think of Gluttony. Hopefully with everything else, it will pull the general idea, to what this thing is. The general idea I got was this fat, out of shape, and slow demon. Which by looking at other concepts of peoples work, that was what it all lead back to. I just don’t want to rehash it all again, into the work I’m doing.
The reason for showing off the work is to get a general idea of what you think. Do you like it? Hate it? I’m really open to every form of idea, no matter the thoughts. I want people to criticize every little thing I do. To me that helps me get better at what I do, and judging what people dislike, or like. If you read this and look at the pics, leave a comment, share what you think. Even if its something harsh share it, you want hurt my feelings, I welcome it.
