The Swamp Witch by InkyFridays The Swamp Witch by InkyFridays
Sophie the Swamp Witch, my entry for Ixi Day on Neopets. I'm sort of really proud of this, even if it's small and near-backgroundless. XD (That was a lot of details to draw for one character, sheesh.) I took the neat lineart technique-thing I used here and exaggerated it, basically. And it was fun. And it came out quite nicely. I've always liked Sophie's design, so that, fun lineart, and swampy colors were <3. Combine it with an expression inspired by Soul Eater and you have yourself something I really, really like. XD Hopefully it makes it in. *crosses fingers*

Sorry for the reeeeeaaally late comment...but this is AWESOME. o__o Not only did you nail all those details of Sophie's design, but the shading is absolutely wicked. ("Wicked" isn't a word I use often, but I thought it fit. You know, both in the surfer dude "wicked" way AND in the creepy-witch-staring-at-you-from-under-the-brim-of-her-hat "wicked" way.) Also, the gnarled staff and the soft glow from the spell came out very, very nicely.
Overall, this thing is so menacing and awesome and creepy that maybe it's a good thing I didn't get around to it until Halloween-time. =D

Thanks, Thorn! = D Yeah, Neopets have always been somewhat challenging. XD Takes a lot of practice, I guess.

I'm a little scared.

I figured that's what she was doing in this picture. =O Turning some irksome fellow into a Mortog (or worse!).

Sophie!!! <333 You have a good point there about her design being detailed. Makes me wonder how the artists managed to draw her again and again for the ToW plot. o_o

Anyway, love what you did with the lineart. And the sharp shadows and the glow from her staff look fabulous. I look forward to seeing this in the AG! :3

I know, right? ._. I mean, the hair, the patches, the vines, the belt, the staff, the sleeves...it's a hecka complicated compared to, like, Gilly. XD Though Bruno seemed pretty complex, too, now that I think of it.

Thanks! ^^ I hope it makes it in.

Yeah, Bruno, too. What with all his warts and fancy Neovian attire. Oh, old plots! How I miss them so!! D'8

Wow Friday! This is incredible! Look at those shadows! They definitely amplify Sophie's slightly mad appearance. :) And look at that gnarly wooden staff! Brill. :D
