Thank you! Yes, I put on some nice music and just went off with it. Had lots of fun making it. satisfied_turtle_head

Also, Merikkinon. You should really be careful what kind of Murloc you ask for. You only said pet murloc... turtle_tongue

There will be an alternate version coming soon, preferably before the end of the year, just for laughs happy_turtle_head

Happy Holidays Fellow Turtles!

In the alternate version, there will be presents!
Abigail is waiting for them, determined to see it happen.

First time drawing fire. I must say, it is a lot harder that I thought but it all came together neatly in the end :)

A bit late but I finally finished the alternative version! *phew* dead_turtle_head
Still, it was lost of fun to mess around with the scene a bit.

Hope you turtles enjoy it as much as I did! smiling_turtle


P.S.: Drawing feet and hands is hard... but I think so far, these turned out to be the best.

Oh, she has fallen asleep. Not a surprise.
But she got the rabbit she was drawing!

I like to think that if it were a 4-pane comic, in the 3rd pane, the little Imp would drag a blanket to cover her and in the last pane she is sleeping under the blanket.

Sometimes, the Imp *CAN* be nice after all...
But that would be too cute and I would probably overload haha

This is an old Halloween comic, turned into a shading study I have been working on for a long time. Finally it is finished and I must say, I learned a lot from it. And brought to it what I have learned doing other projects. I'm happy with the result and I hope you turtles enjoy it too! smiling_turtle_head

Also, this is Part I. She will fly in Part II. smiling_turtle

I wonder if there will be anyone that has ANY idea about the words in the witches' book.

I'm interested to see that too. If nobody knows, I'll provide a translation ;)

-Step 1: Find what script it could be. It seemed similar to the old Russian medieval scripts that were carved on tree barks, so I started from there.
-Step 2: Looking at other asian steppe scripts I found characters to be the close to the Göktürk script (used by mongol and other turkic peoples), so then I checked the child scripts derived from there.
-Step 3: It turned out to be the so called 'Old Hungarian script'.
-Step 4: Then I translated the script and got complete garbage first (according to the translator engines).
-Step 5: Then I thought that maybe the artist did not use the script in its intended order (writing right-to-left), and reversed the letter order.
-Step 6: Then I could get some of the words. After that I played around with some of the letters that look alike another, and indeed I mis-translated 2 characters as 'N' when they are 'O' and another as 'G' when it's an 'L'.
-Step 7: Fixing that gave me the result as:
'bo[sz]orka[ny] repülés' 'vé[gy] e[gy] seprüt és e[gy] ma[cs]kat'
'witch flying' 'take a broom and a cat'

Oh WOW! Mcnair, you are amazing and I tip my witch-hat to you! smiling_turtle

You did a lot of research, very clever figuring it out. I did not realize how difficult it might be to find what script it is if you have never heard of it haha. scared_turtle

I didn't want to make it too complex, writing right to left is... well I've never done it. Did not want to butcher the script any further... happy_turtle

Awesome piece!
