Atonement by zilla774 Atonement by zilla774
The story goes something like this:

In punishment for poisoning their husbands, the twins are banished from the light and sent to hell for their sin. There they are bound together and their perfect faces disfigured for all eternity. The bird sits between them whispering to each in turn about how the other is more beautiful.

----------------

Photoshop, a lot of painting and some badly out of focus stock from [link]

3 days work in total.
