‘The Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs’

Violently killing at least 21 people, Viktor Sayenko and Igor Suprunyuck are perhaps two of the worst criminals in Ukrainian history. A third man, Alexander Hanzha, was involved in several robberies they committed, but never any murders. ‘3 Guys 1 Hammer’ is the name given to the graphic video that depicts the pair killing an innocent man.

The three met in school, and by age fourteen had developed close friendships that were based on their mutual similarities: “Me and Igor were both afraid of heights, and we were afraid we’d be beaten up by bullies”, Sayenko stated during questioning. In an attempt to get rid of their fears, they stood on a balcony of their 14th floor apartment and hung over the railing. Hanzha had a blood phobia, and even refused to bathe his kitten, afraid he might scald it. Suprunyuck then suggested tackling the fears by torturing and killing stray dogs. The boys captured dogs in a wooded area near their house, hanged them from trees, disemboweled them, and took pictures next to the corpses. Above is a photo taken by Suprunyuck and Sayenko after they had brutually killed a stray cat.


Test run of roughing up Bilbo for part of the “All We Know Is Winter” tumblr image. (Original left, edited right) First ever attempt at photoshopping bruises, digging out my tablet would make it easier as mouse cursors are not very accurate.

Also, more thought on bruise placement needed, but not bad (and the muse is satisfied because something creative has occurred so that’s a bonus)
