Desi Charmer Witch by Yamino Desi Charmer Witch by Yamino
I drew this with some inspirational aid from my Indian roommate, Dee.

This was a lot of fun to draw, although I'm still not sure about the colors. If/when she appears in the comic, I may change them.

Do witches have like familiars? Is that why they are always seen with evil animals.

Some witches have familiars, but they aren't necessarily evil. ;)

Wow, awesome! I think this is the best design yet from your various witches set! I particularly like the cobra as a turban! Very gorgeous color scheme, too! It does fit in with Sister Claire's colorful palette style! I'd keep it if you do include her in the comic!

She....looks like a scary genie! 'Oh I'll GIVE you your wish...' 'Noooo, I didn't wish for THAT!!' D:

I like the colours but the attire seems more Arabian than Indian. Love the eyes and the cobra is ace and an excellent pose.

Love that detail in the pants making it seem like the snake-scale pattern. Very cool.

COOL! Snake ... hat!! Sorry, don't know it's name in english... inglish... but in mexican (A variant of spanish, so cool it could blow your minds!) it's a turbante. I want one, preferably one made of Quetzalcoatl!!

In English it's called a turban, so it's pretty similar! It must come from the same root word (which is probably in Arabic, I'm guessing.)

Lol, a Quetzacoatl turban would be HUUUUUUUUUUGE. XD;

Well, I'm partially colour blind, but they fit well and making the snake white was definitely a prime choice.

Your art consistantly brightens my day!

Are the snake legs her legs of just pants? If there pants, I think that the line where the front leg meets the crotch should be more verticle, it might flow more with the angles of her body. When I look at the piture the first thing I notice is the legs, and then my eyes trail up through her body to her face and then to the snake. Makeing the line more virticle should make the flow a bit smoother.

The background is funky as hell and if I ever striked a pose (pun intended) I'd want that behind me.

The way the snake is wrapped like a turban is incredbly clever.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful artwork with us!

I intended the legs to look like that, to echo the snake pattern. I'm afraid it would be lost if I drew the other lines vertically.

I'm glad you like my artwork, I hope it continues to inspire! =)
