Wicked Witch rough sketch by jbcasacop Wicked Witch rough sketch by jbcasacop
Just a very rough sketch of The Wicked Witch of the West. If you look the character up on Wikipedia, this concept of mine does not resemble the description of the original save for her having only one eye that could see really really far. Well, all the characters in our graphic novel so far have never really been a hundred percent faithful to their original counterparts. So here's what I have in mind for the witch- She uses her dark magic to keep herself young-looking. She's some sort of life force vampire which is why anything around her that is unprotected by magical means withers away.

Technicals:

Adobe Photoshop CS5
1 hour

Many of the brushes here belong to the same set of brushes that I used in Dr. Hawkin's Last Dive [link] I'm not really that much into speed painting but when I started this, it was getting really late in the night. I got paranoid about losing my idea so I quickly put my thoughts together resulting to this picture. I hope you still like it though.

Thanks! I'm glad you guys like it even though it's one of my less-polished pieces. I am planning to do another painting of this character with a different pose and hopefully with a better composition. :)

I'm just wondering... this si cool, but are you doing this for heartsurge release? if so, it would be better for the group if you could do it on our forums! so you could actually get critique and the like from artists! if not its all good, its looking cool so far!

Hey Finn! This is a really rough work of mine. I'm glad you like it. I'm really sorry about Heartsurge. This is primarily a character concept. Maybe there is a way I could connect this to the release's theme somehow. Although I don't want to give out something half-baked. I'll have to solidify my idea first if I'm gonna try to push through with this one. But it looks like I'm already too late... My bad! I am so sorry man. My regular commitments such as my day job have become more demanding. Even my schedule for my after-office projects is shifting towards a less favorable pace. I hope you don't feel I've wasted your time or patience. There's no way I could blame you if you do. I am very very sorry. If ever I am still welcome to attempt to join the next release, I'll try my best to do a better job at organizing my schedule. :)

It's one of those things that I could have refined a lot more. But because of a self-imposed deadline, I couldn't polish it further. I will finish it one of these days. :)
