Witching Hour by Newcalibre Witching Hour by Newcalibre
It is hard to believe that it has been one year, since I completed Witchcraft and created this account. In some ways, time has flown by very quickly. In other ways, I've been through so much, that it feels like it has been a lifetime.

This is an anniversary painting of my warlock, Venella Bonnet, also known by her moniker 'the Vulture'. I painted it as a sort of milestone, or landmark of progression.

In the past year, I have progressed artistically, out of sheer persistence and stubbornness. It has been one gruelling uphill battle, and it is far from over, as I still have so much I need to learn, and so much I need to improve upon. However, it is healthy to stop beating yourself up, and take a step back every once in a while, to acknowledge how far you have come.

It is at this point in time that I take a moment to reflect upon what I have learnt and experienced, to celebrate what I have gained. It is also a good time to reassess my plans, and set new goals. I still have a mammoth journey ahead of me, with a lot of work I need to put in, so that I may one day paint like the artists that I admire.

As I mull over the year in passing, I feel exhausted. But while I am tired, my thirst to improve has not waned, and I look forward to overcoming the obstacles and challenges another year will throw at me.

For once in my life, I feel ready.

FANTASTIC. Normally i only skim pencil/shaded work but this is really outstanding, from the detail, to the shading, everything.

Your works mind blowing; it's practically photo quality and you do it with a fucking pencil. What do you ask for commissions?

I like this very much. Her face is just lovely! I'm also super keen on her hair! but everything is wonderfully done. The coloring (I guess I should say shading since it's more monochrome) is beautiful. So smooth and clean! She looks very dangerous and elegant.

Woah. Something about the pose, color, and the way the scythe works in to the composition is simply spectacular.
