Old Witch

Originally this was an assignment for Don's class, but I was having so much fun with it that I thought it would make a good topic for the Avalanche blog. I feel like the colors and values could still use a bit of work, but I'm very happy with her owl-old lady design and the gnarly hands.

  26. I was wondering if we could have your permission for using this wonderful witch for the poster of a theatrical play that will mount in Thessaloniki Greece. Sorry for the off-topic post but I had no luck with finding your e-mail. I anxiously await your response…
