What Obducted Birds Know

(Mods: I don't think this really constitutes a spoiler, but feel free to move it if you like.)

So, while exploring Hunrath I ran across a painting that instantly stopped me in my tracks and would have made me squeal in delight if I were younger or female. The painting depicts the three main characters from the great webcomic "What Birds Know" -- Vandi, Elia, and Dores. The various nods to the Myst/Uru universe are appreciated as well, but those were somewhat to be expected and less worthy of remark that a reference to outside work. Would someone at Cyan care to identify the WBK fan(s) on the dev team responsible for this little tribute?

If you're talking about what I think you're talking about, then I believe it's a Backer Reward (one of the "Be the Artist" levels) so a Backer did it or had it done.

This was one of the backer rewards, I actually did not know the characters were from a web comic when I made the frame for it, so thank you for that information!

Heh. It turns out that Mattias Thorelli, one of the artists of "What Birds Know", is also an Obduction backer and is the source of the painting. Pretty cool.
