Amber Chen’s Sexy Witch, 2009

Posted in 2000+, Digital, Drawing, Halloween, Pin-up on 9 December 2010 by redwitch1

Amber Chen from Georgia explains the process involved in creating a sexy Halloween Witch in this 2009 tutorial on CGArena. As Chen explains: “I wanted to do a sexy pinup girl, and of course, Halloween plus girl equals witch!” Of course.

The tutorial is amazing, and detailed. Rather than repeat the explanation, check out the pictures below, then go look at the tutorial (which has many more images, of details like adding strands of hair) and then check out Chen’s own site, where she adds

Here’s my little tribute to All Hallow’s Eve for this year. Sexy women are fun to draw! ^_~ Was in a rush to finish up the background especially, so I might go back later and clean it up.

DeviantART, A Mix From 2008

There are now 239,440 images under “Witch” on deviantART—with no very easy way of narrowing that group down to the good ones, and no very clear reason why some of the images come up when you do this search. (Because the search engine on deviantART is rubbish.)

I have been periodically trawling the site and keeping the images I liked in separate categories, with the intention of doing a series of posts of those different categories. But I have stopped doing this now because the task is just too big, endless in fact. And so here are a random half-a-dozen images in different media that took my fancy from a trawl I did in 2008.

Keith Dotson Witches, 2007

Posted in 2000+, Drawing on 20 December 2008 by redwitch1

Keith Dotson is an “artist, musician and writer.” The evidence for the first claim is in front of you, those wanting to test his other claims can chase up his MySpace page and blog (mentioned here).

BTW: Dotson sells sketches like these on eBay at a very reasonable rate; he also does commissions, which would make a great xmas present (see his eBay listings here).

Coven 3, 2005

Posted in 2000+, Drawing, NSFW on 12 December 2008 by redwitch1

Coven 3: A Gallery Girls Book was published by SQP Inc. in 2005. It follows Coven: Sisterhood of the Dark (1998) and Coven 2: A Gallery Girls Collection (2002) (see my posts here and here).

Each collection is better than the previous one, and so it was very difficult selecting images for today’s post (which is why I included so many!). My advice is order this collection immediately. It is only $10, so buy one for yourself for xmas! You’ve worked hard, you deserve it; the artists have worked hard too, so support them! You know you want to…

Coven 2, 2002

Posted in 2000+, Drawing, NSFW on 5 December 2008 by redwitch1

I mentioned in my post on Coven: Sisterhood of the Dark that I would discuss the second and third collections of witchy pin-up art “another time.” Well, now is the time for Coven 2: A Gallery Girls Collection published by SQP Inc. in 2002.

This time most of the illustrations are of witches, historical or modern, or enchantresses, sorceresses and other practitioners of the Dark Arts, rather than the female demons, devils, fairies and vampires that dominated the first collection. But the quality of the artwork is just as varied as before, ranging from polished and engaging to crude and clichéd.

Tempting as it is to show just how bad amateur pin-up art can be, I will stick with what I consider to be the better pieces, and try and show the work of a range of artists, not just all the pieces of the best. Enjoy!
