    Chow 144 :: The Siamese Twins


    ROUND #144 :: The Siamese Twins
    DESCRIPTION

    It's year 55 P.A. - Post apocalypse. The nuclear war, and the devastation it caused afterward, led to a huge increase in the number of abnormal births - at least in those populations that survived. In the pockets of the planet that are still relatively untouched, civilization is trying to find a fledgling grip on itself again.

    Outside those, however, is chaos.

    The Siamese twins are rarely known as anything else. Cold and rational, these two not-so-individuals have learned to survive in a world set almost entirely against them.

    Working as "protectionists" for those who wish to cross the wild, they are part mercenary, part guide, part shaman, part extortionist.

    Notes on this round:
    -the twins can be either male or female, but they should both be the same gender
    -post apocalyptic, but the amount of technology they have available is entirely up to you

    this sounds like some nasty images. Pardon me for being stupid but: Is Siamese a sort of nickname or do they really have to be grown to each other

    this is not an easy CHow.Its challenging!

    edit1: Okay I did a sketch,I have searched for Siamese twins and found that its basically two twins attached through bones and flesh, meas sharing same bone structure and flesh.Kind of sick but that's the truth!

    edit2: Face detail.

    I am correct that you mean *Conjoined* twins correct?

    Or do they have to be Thai?

    Siamese twins is another name used for Conjoined twins.

    The name comes from...

    "Perhaps the most famous pair of conjoined twins was Chang and Eng Bunker (1811–1874), Thai brothers born in Siam, now Thailand. They traveled with P.T. Barnum's circus for many years and were billed as the Siamese Twins. Chang and Eng were joined by a band of flesh, cartilage, and their fused livers at the torso. In modern times, they could have been easily separated.[3] Due to the brothers' fame and the rarity of the condition, the term came to be used as a synonym for conjoined twins."

    My first original idea was, to make them as like they're carrying one another (in order to survive + thats very creative use of time and powers and so on)...the one lives in the day, the other sleeps - by night the opposite ... so they would be like the dark one and the light one , ala Yin and yang ... so at one and in the same time absolutely different..... but itsa frustrating way to live... even in post apocalyptic manner ...


    ....so i'll go with the hoookers, hahah

    If you read the brief again carefully you'll notice that they already have a job and it isn't prostitution.




    and for the record everyone, yes, i do mean conjoined twins. sorry, i grew up with the slang for it.

    carnifex, the brief does state that there are a lot of genetic anomalies, so i'll allow mutation, as long as it's within reason. They should still look like they were supposed to be human, though.

    I'll try to do this, since it will be my first CHOW, but don't expect anything too fancy. I'm doing the COW as well so...

    Take a look in my Sketchbook!!!!

    The reason i ask is, becouse if it is Post apocalypse, would normal paramaters of facial identity still excist due to mutation?
