Triumph by xtomorrow Triumph by xtomorrow
"Triumph."
Mechanical pencil.
Pen and ink.
Watercolor and watercolor pencils.
Sketchbook paper.

Kizioko and I worked together for the first time in the creation of this piece for the Seven Deadly Sins contest here on DA. She told me about the contest yesterday, the last day before all entries were due and said that she wanted to submit something for it. She offered the idea of us doing it together. We sat together brainstorming for a while; we were both shy for ideas. After a while we finally starting forming the idea of someone dragging someone else or themselves on a bed. I kept questioning how this really represented "sloth." Following more time we concluded an idea of someone constrained to a bed, piled with objects of so much of this modern worlds laziness, breaking free. We feel that this person breaking the ropes holding him to this bed of modern pleasure is a message against the deadly sin for which this contests theme is based.

I drew the man with the cuff and the bed. She added the pile of stuff. Then we both had a lot of fun painting it on our kitchen counter. It was very painful to make and we both feel that it is a terrible piece. Working together for the first time was very difficult but we decided after the pain that went into it to post it on DA anyway. : )

This is brilliant, I can see the energy he expands and the breaking ropes are fabulous. And it's great how he is surrounded by hot, energizing RED splashes and all that symbolizes laziness is fighting back with contrasting, cold blue. I'd deal with the perspective of the bed itself and the anatomy, but I only say this because I prefer to aim at realism. Great piece.

That's right on with colors. That was my idea after an accident of splattering the wrong side. It would have been more realistic but we rushed it and we were working in two different sketchbooks to create each side. Then we combined them hoping they would fit. I kind of messed up on the guys arms because I wasn't really paying attention. And then again after painting it; I went over the hand with a pen and screwed up the illusion. I was too lazy to fix, mainly because I didn't like the piece. Painting it was the only fun part about it. I'm glad that you like it though. Thank you.
