Inktober finale

Inktober finale published on No Comments on Inktober finale

Christmaswitch The Christmas witch says ‘goodbye October.’  But far be it for me to jump from Halloween to Christmas and miss reveling in my favoritist holiday of all:  Thanksgiving!

I know the great turkey feast doesn’t ring too many people’s bells, but I love it.  I always remember liking it as a kid, and I have liked it more and more as an adult.  There’s something magical about seasonal dishes and traditions.  Halloween is great and all, but Thanksgiving sets the tone for the rest of the year.  I never enjoy cooking and baking so much as I do for the marathon that begins with Thanksgiving.

The Christmas witch is also the last of my Inktober celebration.  Hope ya’ll liked it.

This went pretty well.  I admit I interpreted inktober a little liberally, but almost all of my pictures start with ink anyway, so technically, I celebrate ink everyday.  Happy Halloween!

I had a list of stereotypical witch situations to draw.  You know, witch with goblet, with black cat, with the devil.  NSFW for nudity after the jump.

Sea Witches

Sea Witches published on No Comments on Sea Witches

SeawitchesThere are many stories about 1/2 women 1/2 something else that come from the sea, and, though they may not always be called witches, their antics and magic have a similar ring to my ears.  Here I have evening gown representations of a mermaid, selkie and manatee.  Why manatee?  Because they were once mistaken for mermaids too, don’t ya know.

flying naked

Another nude witch.  I’ve seen old prints and woodcuts that show naked witches straddling their brooms, but I don’t see how that is manageable at all.

NSFW for nudity after the jump.

Scary? naked witch

Scary? naked witch published on No Comments on Scary? naked witch

Okay, I don’t do the nude very much on the blog even though I draw it a lot.  Many great artworks depicting witches show them nude for several reasons.  Witches worshiped naked to have a closer connection with nature around them, to remove obstacles between themselves and magic.  The Garderian tradition of Wicca documented and brought nude worship practices to the public eye in the mid 20th century.  Critics of Wiccan covens of this time sometimes commented that the religion was only a smoke screen for nudity and lewd behaviors.  Nude depictions of witches were also used by more prudish sensibilities as way to show witches as evil and depraved.
