Tangled Web

"Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." ~ Sir Walter Scott

A thief can only take what you own but a liar can take all that you are. Eventually the liar becomes so tangled in their web of lies that they can't break free. Lies can cause irreparable harm not only to the recipient but also to the person telling them and the bigger and blacker the lie the harder it can come back and bite you.

Created in Photoshop CS2 and painted using a Wacom tablet.

Awesome! So freaky. The skin tones are amazing. Always wonderful to see my brushes used so well, too. :)

It looks like you warped the web to show her weight on it, which is a wonderful touch!

No, not eating :fear: just returning some of the pain all liars inflict on others.
Thank you :heart:
