Living in Sin - Pride. by Endling Living in Sin - Pride. by Endling
Getting to the end now.. heh heh. Here's the cruelest of the Sins, Pride..

-- Pride (Superbia) --

The excessive belief in one's own abilities, interfering with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise.

The darkest of the Sin girls. She enjoys methodically and systematically picking people apart from the foundation of their very being, and destroying them facet by facet, all while indulging in her own glory. She has a series of mirrors hooked up to her gown, which fan out like a peacock's tail when she needs an emergency reminder of how gorgeous she really is. The rest of the Sins aren't terribly fond of her, but she could care less, as she knows they're all jealous trollops anyway. She's determined to be the Sin that corrupts Seth to his end, and as such, adopts a fake personality around him to gain his trust and stroke his ego.. oh so tenderly. Ooh la la..

Likes: Herself.
Dislikes: You.
Color: Violet.
Symbol: The horse.
Punishment in Hell: Broken on the wheel.
Opposing virtue: Humility.
Demon: Lucifer.

Lineart = :iconendling, colors & photoshoppery = ! Got to hand it to Dave, he did a bangup job coloring this one. :)

Please give this one a full view, there's a lot of little details. :) Thanks for watching!

I've heard that pride is the most seductive vice because it promises so much in a chaotic world

And that pride is the most dangerous because from it comes narsassism and from that, payocopathy- the worst monster

But I had though that greed was the basic sin that leads astray- the pure and gluttonous desire to just get more......

I guess it's both- either, or, just depending on the victim in question but lusting greed and gluttonous want of it does require an amount of me me me pride or disregard to work and vice versa ...

Such a viral thing...

broken on the wheel? Dear lord D8
watcher25 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015
Yeah- I can guess why...

"You think you are so perfect? Let's test that."


"Oh look at that stupid, YOU ARENT!"

A fitting punishment if we are to consider it

she looks
Azusea Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2011
Wwha. Wonderful. Pride is really beautiful. Is she the oldest girl in the family ? Because I think The 7 sins are a family, no ? I think Avarive is the youngest and Pride the oldest ..... But i'm not sure ! Sorry for this question ! ><

Xan: I always hated that kind of sin. It makes people so very annoying.
kystaxelex Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2010
Wow, she's very fit to lead them, tha's for sure. Though she probably won't lead them in the right direction. . . Beautifull and cruel, she almost looks profound- you captured pride perfecly.
amber808 Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2010
damn, my sin is bad! (but my friends punishment is worse.... i think) i love the colour (in fact in one of my favorite colours that look good on me :) isn't that strange) and at a young age i had a obsession with horses (yeah i know weird) oh and i love picking people a part (not literally! )
Interesting and lovely work :D

She is the mother of all sins, I bet that there could be a battle between sin and virtue one day, do you think you can create the opposites of the sin girls too? XD

skyrere Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2009
i would have liked to have seen the peacock tail of mirrors that you mentioned her dress sports.
that would have been interesting... and probably challenging.
angelbattler Featured By Owner May 2, 2009
FMA Pride: Hmmm...
watcher25 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015


Weird right? A synthetic non-human with reservations about a demonic female manifestation with the same name but far more serious evil to be wrought

A smaller monster recognizing a bigger one ...
Micome Featured By Owner May 2, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
Another awesome piece, though I must ask, what does 'broken on the wheel' mean? I've never heard of that term before...
Sn3kers Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
You said you wouldn't mind people doing any of your characters as Cosplay, right? Would you mind releasing an in depth view of Sloth's, Gluttony's, and Pride's costumes for us; or is that asking for too much?
ZidanielRaziel Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2009
This is a nice picture and your well written detail is awesome. Thx for the favourite.

Aren't satan and lucifer the same thing?
Vanhelsing1117 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008
wait, nevermind (reviewing the book) that was betrayer, not the overproud.
Vanhelsing1117 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008
i like all of these pieces, they fascinate me. the punishment is a lot less grotesuqe then Dante's, which i'm pretty sure was being personally devoured by Satan over and over in the lowest circle of Hell.
kilian777 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2008
What does Broken on the wheel mean? it sounds like you get run over by Satan's Camaro until all your bones are broken.
Vanhelsing1117 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008
"Satan's Comaro"

sombody saw Transformers... :3
kilian777 Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2008
I was wondering where I got that one from. Good job picking that up!
Endling Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2008
I would not rule out that possibility.
kilian777 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2008
Or maybe you're beaten to death by ogre backseat drivers while you try to keep fro going off the road.
Alex-Stein Featured By Owner May 30, 2008   Writer
John Cleese (Fawlty Towers) once complained abou the oft use term "could care less". In England we say "couldn't care less", because if your level of caring is at zero then you are unable to care further, whereas if you "could care less", you must care a bit, and since the amount of caring is not specified, you may well care a lot. Think about that when you next say it.
On the topic of this work, I love it.

Oo I love this one xD

Wow~! She's so pretty.
crimsonyaoi Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2008
its gorgeous!!
KaijuDuke Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2007
WOW! She seems like a fine lady...physically anyway, her personality on the other hand appears to be that of someone you'd like to toss off the nearest cliff (or put something yucky in her hair while she sleeps to teach her a lesson, LOL!). I like how her cold look and elaborate, well tailored gown puts more emphasis on her true nature. I also love the human names you came up with for each sin character, Superbia in this case. Are their given names real names you found in a entomology book or name list somewhere? Or did you simply make them up? Also, how does Seth come to meet these Sin girls and what is their reason for staying with him?

P.S. sorry for all the questions, when I become a fan of something I gotta know it all! XD! Merry Christmas!
Stammo Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2009
I think she used the traditional Latin names that the 7 D.S. were given waaaaaaaaaaay back when. I did the same with my own version of the 7 D.S. in my novel in progress. The names do sound a lot cooler that way!
Digiigid Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2007
well if she picks at me facet by facet well i aint gonna just let her ill do the same saying she cant tell me shes better she aint the queen of the world and no one can change that *makes snappy noises* oh yeah XDDi edmit i like her hair lol...ill go you dont need these much mirrors and snatch them away and break them and say you are just a shell full of pride and glory but something else maybe your lonely and drown yourself with mirrors if you keep doing this you just end up alone and sad...ok im done XDD..yes i can be deep xD
brianchi Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2007
And the "Coldest of the Lot" prize goes to Pride! Congrats.
Another awesome work! Good job!

Just a couple of question.
1. If someone managedto shatter Pride's mirror or tell her she was ugly, what would she do?
2. What happens to the Sins if their physical body dies/gets destroyed?
YingSi Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2007
really really oh so really like the dress!
RadioactivePopTart Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2007
...That's my sin. ><; Ah. I'm so conceited in RL ... I hate being conceited but oh, how I love myself~ >x<;;

Oh, gawd. Last "bump" comment, I promise :D

Pride is my absolute favorite sin (I've been told it's the one that's "sending me to Hell" by several people, lol), and I LOVE how perfectly you and your friend Dave captured it in her :) The peacock-mirror idea is absolutely fabulous, too, so I wonder if we'll ever get to see that? ;)

Anyway. I adore your work, man :) I'll stop spamming old pictures :D
ZeroConfidence Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2007  Hobbyist Artist
lol. I would think pride would be hard to craft into a likeness of a person, but your's is magnificent. FMA had a pride, but the personality and looks of your's seems way better.
Aleder Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2007
its great but only thing is wrong
lucifer and satan (demon of wrath)
its the same demon
Endling Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2007
Heh. Nope. You're the one who'd be wrong there.

You need to do some more research. :3 Wikipedia is your friend.
