Living in Sin - Greed. by Endling Living in Sin - Greed. by Endling
At long last.. haha.. Greed. Otherwise known as Avarice. This one was done towards the end when the deadline was breathing down our collective necks.. (Dave and I), so it's not the snazziest outfit or pose.. but look for an update on that in the future. :) Given the time we had to squeeze this out, I think Mr. did a fine job coloring it. This is an older piece, I think we could probably go back and improve on quite a few things. But I had to get it posted, for the sake of completing the series as it was presented in class. :D

So anyhoo!

Greed (avarita)
"The desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual.."

Greed gets quite peeved if you refer to her as a little kid, but certainly goes out of her way to act like one. She's the demonic equivalent of a spoiled daddy's girl (well, more demonic anyway), and has no shame in acting every bit the part. She loves to go shopping, and to a greater extent, plotting bank heists and get-rich-quick schemes (typically including Seth in the plot without his knowledge). She may not be much of a physical threat by herself, but she stands a tremendous danger to anyone's financial well-being.
She travels around with a small flock of nipping purses, which have been known to bite a few ankles in aid of their master while she's running from the authorities (escaping whilst in high heels is no easy task). The purse around her neck opens only when she wishes to put valuables in it. Seth has never seen her take anything back out.

Likes: shiny things!
Dislikes: poor people (particularly art students)
Color: Gold/yellow.
Symbol: The frog. (yet she's terrified of them)
Punishment in Hell: Boiled in oil.
Opposing virtue: Generosity.
Demon: Mammon

Betrayal isn;t a deadly sin

I love how her dress has all the different symbols for money on it.

I like how you imagined a personality for Greed.

Love her dress. xD
Malissiah Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010
Damn I can Imagine that " Hey Seth listen I sold your soul to Satan to buy me new dress! Hope you don't mind. C'ya" "WHAAAAAAAAAT?!"

since she has so many different monetary symbols on her dress, i wonder if she's really good at math. like being able to convert Japanese yen into euros then into American dollars really quickly. It would definitely match her personality as someone who is greedy would love to spend hours just counting their monies

Amazing colors, and the pose is actually befitting... U.u It's rally awesome!

FMA Greed: Hmm, no she I might like. Whaddya say... friends?
dinshino Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2009
I think Tantalus's punishment would be more appropriate than being boiled in oil.
Anrati Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2008
Money que é good nós num have! I liked this one too, however I think she might be a terrible people to live with, but she'really beautiful.

I've just discovered your Living in Sin series and I must say, I really hope you follow up on this some day. This sounds like one of the most entertaining character sets I've ever heard of, and I'd love to see how you get these characters to live together for more than an hour without tearing each other and the living space apart.

Kyoki-Warrior Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2008
GREED ROCKS THE SOCKS! I love greed! It's my favorite of the seven. Even in Fullmetal Alchemist, Greed is always portrayed as an awsome character and this is no execption.......Great Job....really!
KaijuDuke Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2007

What a sin she is. Greed, the spoiled little daddies girl. Perfect the look and the skill used to make he is top grade. Now i need to read the other sins now. lol
Sexy-Gold-Fish Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007
I don't mean to butt in, but since you did change her design recently, shouldn't you do another one of these? She wasn't altered drastically or anything, but it would still be interesting if you did decide to redo one in the future...I'm not butting in! Really!
Loverofpiggies Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2007
You know, I always felt greed was the root of all evil cause it seemed to always spring up other sins when trying to accomplish it. ^^;
drinjix22 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2007
don't you have a ';pride'-named character??
Katherinemoon Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2007  Student General Artist
OH she so cute! I'd give her my money!
deidarasgurl Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2007
whos mammon and why a boiled in oil?
This is acutally my favorite from this series. I love her puckered lips, and the small details that went into this, such as the dollar and cent sign in her hair, as well as the different money signs on her dress. She is very adorable.
This is great! I love how her hair makes a dollar sign and a cent sign. So kewl. X3 :+fave:, definitely.

A série "Living in Sin" é d+, muito boa; como surgiu essa idéia?

The series "Living room in Sin" is too much, very good; how did that idea appear?

This one is just so comical. I love it. The money bags, the money signs and the tremendous amount of hair are just great.

I like the jumping purses. I read that greed was a cumulation of two sins, 'though: Avarice AND prodigality. Of course, prodigality would imply that she actually spends money on stuff instead of just taking it, so she might be innocent of that. I also like the various monetary symbols on her dress.

what do you mean by Demon: Mammon ?
Jokerinc Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2006  Student Filmographer

i realize avarice sort means greed
you know the lust for money and all
but isnt greed just desire for everything?

just a friendly questiong :]
HakuIceProgidy619 Featured By Owner May 2, 2006
Ho-ho, Avarice, wanting more than you already have...
This sin is one interesting one, becuase its usally the one that
gets to people to attached to this world... Like ghosts with
unfinished business, because they don't want to let go of what
they have here...
Another Marvelous job... ~+fave!

Nice series!
poodlepout Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006
Wow! She looks like this girl in all my periods at school! Stephanie Myers. She has everything. EVERYTHING! But what bothers me is that she doesn't appreciate what her mother does for her. I heard her on the bus talking on her thousand dollar cell phone to her mom like, 'Listen mom, i can live my own life i don't need you!!' and she hung up. I bet she wouldn't say that if her mom stopped buying everything she asked for.
Oh wait... off topic X3
I love her face, and especially her hair. Hell, that money bag just bring it home XD
Endling Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2006
Ironic that she told her mom that on the cell phone bought with her parents money, most likely. Pff.

That's a neat drawing. ALthoug the concept is slightly flawed: it's too directed towards money. But I guess Envy is a concept that is too vast to fit in 646x823. Hey, why are all your sins women anyway? *acts shocked*
