Granny Weatherwax by zorm Granny Weatherwax by zorm
...with a malfunctioning broomstick. "Oh bugger!" might be the thought floating on top of her mind.

Sketchy sort of thing, but blasted well won't go to scraps. Maybe some mistakes.

She kinda reminds me of McGonagall. She's just awesome that way. ;)

Okay, so you like full and proper comments. But I'm seventeen and your twenty-six so I can only say what I like about it and why cause it would be stupid of me to say what you could improve on when your so much more experienced.

Well it's in character for one thing. the way she walks when she's angry and you did that without making her anatomy look over streched or out of proportion so points for that.

You remembered the hat pins and clomper boots! Very important for a Granny pic.

The woods behind look crowded and realistic without looking messy.

but I have to say that the tatters along the hemline of her dress are is my favorite detail.

One thing I don't like is the length of her nose. I thought it was supposed to be sharp but not quite that much.

So all in all I think I will favorite this.

:lol: Well, that was a long and analytic comment. I haven't gotten around unraveling the huge accumulation of unread stuff in my inbox until now, but comments like yours are surely fun to read. :D

Oh, and I scarcely look at people's ages. All kinds of people can notice things I necessarily haven't. ;)

Thanks!

I saw this...and just had to shake my head, wondering wether to laugh or to just drop dead from amazement.

Normally, I'm not a diskworld fan, but I've read enough of them to know a great character when I see...or read one.

My personal favorite is Death. I can read just about anything in his books that have to do with Death (hense, Mort is my favorite book)

Oh, I'm absolutely delighted with this! The little sparks falling from the broom made me really smile! I find them marvelous, they make me happy, don't ask me why. It's just like I was a little girl again and finding everything that sparkles appealing. *grin* Otherwise the woman's kind of... scary. A sinister version of Minerva McGonagall.

Oooh, I love this! I'm not in the fandom and I know nothing about that, but I love this picture. It has such warm tones, and it's full of details (awww, look at that background, at the woman's face and dress!) What did you use to draw it? (*is ignorant about anyting tecnique-related*)

Technique-wise, it's nothing more complicated than copy paper, pencils, and finger smudging. The brown tone is a simple hue shift trick done digitally. I've just uploaded this to the traditional art section, since the color change is a fairly insignificant process compared to the hand-drawn part, very much like contrast fixing and suchlike.
