Entry for Mizz Worthy's Contest

For my entry to Mizz Worthy's myths/legends contest, I chose the myth of the Furies. Three goddesses of vengeance: Tisiphone (avenger of murder), Megaera (the jealous) and Alecto (constant anger). They were also called the Daughters of the Night, but were actally the daughters of Uranus and Gaea. Without mercy, the Furies would punish all crime including the breaking of rules considering all aspects of society. They would strike the offenders with madness and never stopped following criminals. The worst of all crimes were patricide or matricide, and first and foremost, the Furies would punish this kind of crime.

I felt like they would be feminine but with a hard edge to them. Very natural, big hair. Pale, dewy skin. Emphasis on the eyes, as they are the window to the soul. I wanted to keep them dramatic and dark without using too much black. I like the warm pewter color that developed as it reflected the cold look in the eyes I was looking to achieve. Hope you all like it!
