wow....abstract is great, this is what I had in mind, rather than be obvious, you've created pieces that invoke the feeling of the sin...great job:D
I especially like the wrath one, it feels really mad, and full of energy...
and the gluttony, really well done, subtle in the really round center form...great job!

Lordrott
thats great that you used your wife as the subject:)
I think they are a great start, love how you tied them all together with the uniform look(stripes) but seem unfinished? Maybe adding more depth, with other images/art, texture or type? And I love the pride picture, but feel like the grey doesn't compliment the theme of 'Pride'????

Nicholas
Good interpretation....the image is a little to dark, I had trouble making out what the center image was, maybe add some contrast to the piece?

Thanks everyone for your entries, great ideas/concepts.... I'd love to see some more:)

Here Is The Updated Version Of "Wrath & Anger" - I used Adobe Photoshop CS2 With A Wacom Tablet To Create A Outline Of The Original - www.fiendishthingies.com/gas%20mask%20side.JPG - And Added Fire And Colors That Resemble Anger/Wrath Ect... Into The Mind. War Is The Worst Wrath On This Earth And It Brings With It Many Mixed Feelings, One Being Anger. Also Riots - Both Situations Have Been Set In Peoples Minds This Image - A Gas Mask - Just To See A Gas Mask Alone... They Are Never In Peaceful Places And Some People Are Actually Scared Of The Mask Alone I Have Read. I Hope You All Like My Work As Much As I Liked Doing It! Took Me A While To Get It Done Afer I Did Some Research!

(I Removed The Words So They Are Not A Distraction - I Believe It Draws A Person Into The Art Alot More This Way - Thank You For The Feedback rinaldidesigns!)

Thank You Again Design-Contest For Another Great Community Contest!

Yeah, I suppose more could have been done, but it was last minute after all.

Yeah, indeed. The piece is nice, but more could have been done.

Again, thank you to all that entered.......:)

lemieuxster
I agree with resurepus...love the comedy take on wrath, very original, but just a simple tweak to the background (via pshop) would of made your image 'pop', and look finished......still a great idea:)

Nicholas
Fantastic...now the image pops, I can make out central image, it does look like 'war', wrath, a dark feeling image, I think you did a great job...bravo:0)

I will post the winner within the next 48hrs. stay tuned...thanks again for entering....:)

first of all, congratulations to nicholas for winning the contest. enjoy your price and the step you achieved that puts you more close to be part of the design team! :D

but i really don´t think that he should be the winner. i can´t understand why you thought that his entry was better than zii´s. indeed, lemieuxster was from my point of view much better. in fact lemieuxter´s has a solid idea behind, the concept is clean and clear; maybe his graphic resolution wasn´t the best, but his idea was great. zii´s concept was brilliant and his pieces communicated in a great way the feelings of the sins.

can you tell me why nicholas won? at his piece i don´t see anger, wrath or anything. the only concept that communicates that piece to my is WAR or NUCLEAR WAR. that´s not a deadly sin. it´s graphically poor, just a bunch of photoshop filters with no other intention that make a crazy background.

please, explain me because i don´t understand. i´m really surprised... i´m really are. in fact, reading the feedback you made to zii, was very clear that he would be the winner. and i was 100% agree with that resolution, because his concept and graphic were superb. abstract and right to the heart.

i hope this post doesn´t hurt nichola´s feelings. i´m sure he can make a whole lot of things much better than this.

sorry, but i´m really confused about this.

Number one - I didn't use a single filter lol - a wacom tablet can work wonders!

Number two - No feedback is the only bad feedback, thank you for pointing out your opinion. It in no way makes me feel bad! If you read what is around my post, you will see more clearly my point of view on the piece. The history behind the gas mask and what people feel when they see one ect especially in countries outside the U.S. where I live. Thanks again!

When I see a gas mask this reminds me of people who want to save their life. War is not always anger, according to me. War is something by which people get some area( in the past) or there are some political reasons people don't agree with. That's the way to prove their opinions, personalities or nationalities.
Congratulations Nikolas! I like your entry cos it really express dark feelings. That's very good.
To tell u the truth I agree with lordrott. Even it was not me I would agree with him again. I suppose that the answer of his questions is that Nicholas hasn't won any contest but I did almost twice (I was runner-up in the first). I might be wrong, that's just what think.
I don't take part in this contests because I want to win a DC T-shirt. I have one and I'll keep long it because that's one of the best prices I've ever got. But I really want to be a DC team member.
As I said yesterday in another post in this site - I am sure that the next community contest will be a great challenge for all of us. Good luck!
