Seven Deadly Sins: Finished Project

I never actually thought I would be able to finish this in time for deadline. This project has been so stressful; fun though. And even though I had to rush these a bit, I'm really pleased with them. Here we go:

I won't put the titles up; one of the ideas of the project was to create a sense of ambiguity with the sins; I know some are more obvious than others. I was looking at perception and the way text can influence an image, so I suppose it's interesting if people have their own perceptions of which Sin each image represents. My three favourites are Pride, Sloth and Envy; they definitely came out the best.

I also want to upload this image as well, it's my favourite drawing from the project. I've noticed I have actually improved over these past 12 weeks. It works quite well as a piece on it's own:

I handed in today; such an amazing feeling. Now I can have a bit of a relax over Christmas, while I start applying for my MA. Scary stuff.

I'll post my finished magazine next...
