sorry rinaldi... it seems that when i was a baby i hit my head too much times :p

we have to enter only three sins (one per postcard), or we have to enter the seven sins (one per postcard) and we have 2 more opportunities to "enhace" them?

thanks for your time.

lordrott,

you will be making ONE post card with ONE sin on it.
that would be considered ONE entry.

so you can have 3 post cards, each with one sin.

that help?

I take it there's no problem in rotating the postcard 90 degrees?
4x6 or 6x4, doesn't matter?

Gathering some material now. Will produce entry #1 tonight.

edit: I did infact produce a piece tonight, which is fine.
But fine.... is not enough for a designer I think. So, not satisfied, so no post yet!

I did my 6x4 inches on 72dpi which goes to 150dpi in the new version.
So actually I did a really detailed sketch, but am busy doing the final piece.

But I'm on "lust" and the girl is looking at me all night. Quiting for today, otherwise I dream of her all night :p

Tomorrow I'll drop a post here with the final result.

Nice subject, really like it!

no, unfortunatelly not this month. I would like to have the monthly $100 prize back some time in the future, but at the moment it is just not possible (unless we find a sponsor for the community contests section)

Ha, took some time. Had some crashes, unsaved work, etcetera.
But at last, my first entry is in.
I am not totally satisfied with the outcome yet. But I wanted to put an end to this. The subject Lust is very challenging to visualise. Gimme words and i'll manage, but a visual, decent interpretation is quite hard I experienced.
I like the subject "7 sins" that much, that this is my first piece in a serie of 7.
Within 2 days I shall post two other Sins as entries and soon after that, the whole 7 Sins Serie will be available. Challenging, but fun to do.

Thank you wickedmind for your entry....
you've taken the sin 'lust' and illustrated it, it definitely conveys that:)...I would like to see an image that relies more on itself, rather than the words;)
I love the little flourishes with the hearts, nice touch, and your colors are good...This is a great start, can't wait to see more.....
(please keep canvas at 72dpi, since we are viewing on screen)

Hi all,
I am ready with two of my entries. I want to post more but unfortunaltely I have no time to finish them. I made these 2 pieces of my work a bit abstract cos I don't like so obvious themes in my art works. So I chose wrath(anger) and gluttony. I hope u appreciate them in their artistic way of expression:)
