    7 deadly sins

    hey all! it feels like its been a long time since i posted anything. been up to my ears with work. but recently i had these cool french guys hit me up to do a two page illo for an upcoming graffiti book. these are the gigs i love to take on as side projects, as there was no art direction, and the topic was an interesting challenge. also, the graffiti guy in me gets all excited about contributing to a european graf book i will always embrace the culture that fostered my love for the arts, and am always happy to contribute to the cause of the aesthetic. anyway, the theme of the book is the 7 deadly sins. you would be suprised how difficult it is to dodge the easy cliches, and try to render it down to a single iconic image. each sin changed at least 3 times over the course of the creation of the illo. but in the end, im fairly happy with the result, more because i got to be me, and distort where i saw fit and make the descisions i wanted to make. these jobs are really healthy to do i think, because it reminds you you make art in a way, and lets you out to run free for a while. I CANT WAIT FOR THE SAN FRANCISCO WORKSHOP!!! anyway, here it is, with a couple full resolution shots as well. hope you like -c36

    Wow. Really impresionant. I think that it's a digital painting, isn´t it? or you painted them separately and then put together into the computer?. The background and the type of font looks so good. In the other hand i don´t know if the composition is the bestr or not because i think that the artist choose it to express something to us so if you choose this i agree with it. Moreover the guys that are "making love" the boy have the arms so long, could be?.

    Thanks for posting this amazing stuff of yours.

    Andrej: its not finished. refelctive of my own sloth

    Pichuerca" heh thanks man. yeah its all digital. the reason for the composition is because it is a two page spread, which i kind of wanted to run across the 2 pages. the composition was very intentional on this piece, as it was not necessaritly to create a scene, more to evenly emphasize all 7 sins, and kind of tie it together on a flattened plane, like graffit art in general. also, the lengthening of the guys arm, heh, i know. i walked into that with my eyes wide open. no regrets. sometimes i feel the need to stretch and exaggerate shit.thanks again dood!-c36

    that is hilarious, and deep, at the same time. After Austin, I'm convinced you are the priest of Conceptart.org.

    Anyway, great piece coro. I think envy is the most creative. I wouldn't have thought of that in a million years. Thanks for sharing man, I feel the love from here.
    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    The pride one does not make sense to me either. You are depicting those who revel in their sin, and the samurai kills itself because of pride? Even so, the reason the samurais would commit suicide is to release shame.

    Thats really well done Coro
    I love all the type except for greed... it stands out from the other ones a lot

    The images seem almost disconnected from the background and have a universe of their own. They are impressive on their own, but I fail to see a whole unified illustration. I love the idea of envy being the car... and anger, or wrath, with the baby!
    It's got almost a comic book feel to it, in my opinion... which i like
    The integration between pride and gluttony is kick ass!
