Idolatry-2004 by Comickpro Idolatry-2004 by Comickpro
Idolatry means "the worship of false idols". This demon in the "Series of Sin" is falsely disguising itself with a Hello Kitty head to lure in the false worshippers who idolize Hello Kitty and Mickey Mouse (See the gloves?)

This painting is 5' 10" x 5' 1". And it's very old...2004. I have since updated Idolatry's look, and added front feet and a more pronounced head....That tumor thing is its real head. The Hello Kitty is just an attachment sewn to his neck really :D

Acrylic paint

Haha no :b I did a mountain of large charcoal drawings of hellish cartoon pieces on white paper that was about 3-4ft in size before I eventually switched to paints because all that charcoal was a mess to keep off the floor and storing giant charcoals were super hard! I have never posted my charcoals here...I'm sure they are all rolled up and smudged in my parents attic somewhere haha.

No prob. All these creatures you draw whould be perfect for some kind of abstract horror game (In my opinion).

Ha-ha it does look like one huh? ;b I was thinking more like a tumor with a cut stitched on the seams. And if it rips open the stitches you see his teeth and such but his face is always hidden within the meat.

Hey, you know, I believe I haven't said anything about any of the Sin paintings yet. Am I right?
(xD, thats a guillotine offence there!).... Well let's get started. :)

Hmm... idolatry.
Yes, plenty of that around in the countless, heartless advertisements out there. Its everywhere, screening on TV's, billboards, radios even graffiti. Everyday, its constantly being rammed down our throats. Its sad really because it's how the big companies operate and shift their stock to the poor consumer, who don't even really get a say in the matter. They buy because it's considered cool and everyones got it, (even though most likely the thing is of crap quality anyway.) It could be considered a drain on individuality as well, in my opinion.
Disgraceful.....isn't it?

This painting is, wickedly good! I just really like how you've done the idolatry as an ugly looking thing, trying to cover up its image with the well known props to lure into a false sense of security, (Hello Kitty and Mickey/Disney.)
The horns, is that suggesting seasons are being shamelessly commericalised too? (a stab at halloween?)
:XD: I see Sin's been hustled into Hello Kitty, xD nice!
The very dark, errie styling suits Idolatry perfect because that is what it is, a dark and evil ploy. (haha, I like your dark take on Hello Kitty btw, a thing that comes across as happy and fuzzy normally, looks pretty damn good in this styling.)
Once again, I marvel at your artistic ability, it never ceases to amaze. :) The colours and the shades, the expressions, the statures and structures , the deranged looks of the guys, all :thumbsup: spot on!
I think its safe to say you've got more heart than those corperate idiots will have and will ever hope to have!
Very nice work Comick.

Know what... I'm gonna fav this! :star:
Thank you!

Ah wow! Thanks so much! :D Truly a well thought and written review!! This is an older rendition done in 2003 and it’s been the subject of new roughs I'm currently doing for a new redone painting of Idolatry, so it’s really nice to read how parts worked and read in this one (so I can accentuate parts in the new one). Thanks again! XD

Interesting piece. I like the use you made of figure heads that are in an essence worshiped by some as if they are the end all to end all. Yet the demon can not hide its true form when it comes down to it. Very nicely done.
