A Frog, an Owl and a Raven …

Raven – Witch Apprentice
The Owl House + Amphibia Returns

🇩🇪 Die vergangene Woche verzeichnete aus meiner Sicht eine dreifache Rückkehr.

Sicherlich erinnert ihr euch an die Moodboard Challenge der School of Games aus dem letzten Jahr. Zu dieser hatte ich ein Bilder meiner Wüstengöttin Saharia eingereicht. Dieser Contest findet auch dieses Jahr wieder statt.

Wie ihr dem Link entnehmen könnt, geht es dieses Jahr darum, ein*n Magic Apprentice zu kreieren. Dies inspirierte mich zu Raven, der Diebin, die bei einer Hexe einbrach und daraufhin ein neues Leben begann (beginnen musste):

🇬🇧 The last week meant a trifold return for me.

Surely you remember the School of Games Moodboard Challenge from last year. I submitted a painting of my desert goddess Saharia. This contest takes place again this year.

As you can see from the link, this year is about creating a Magic Apprentice. This inspired me to create Raven, a thief who sneaked into a witch’s house and started (was forced to start) a new life:

Raven and the Chamber of Witchcraft

  • Digital painting, comic style: Raven (young woman, short white hair in sidecut, barefooted, simple golden brown dress, a necklace with a raven charme) sitting on a terracotta tiled floor in front of a storage rack with books, jars, scrolls and several magical items, looking on some magic lights coming from a magical staff and a puddle of red potion on the floor, additionally a text with her background story "Raven - Witch Apprentice; Originally a thief (not a good one, obviously) who made the mistake sneak into a witch's hut but got betrayed by her own clumsiness. To make up for the trouble, she henceforth either had to live the life of a small green hopping animal or to become the witch's apprentice (incl. all the chores coming with it)."; my Instagram nick in the background of the painting.
  • Digital painting, comic style: Raven, a young woman with short white hair in sidecut, barefooted, wearing a simple golden brown dress and a necklace with a raven charme, sitting on the floor (terracotta tiles); in front of her a tipped open jar, pouring a red puddle between her feet, next to it a tipped wooden magical staff, throwing light towards the puddle, creating several circles with magic symbols in the air; more jars and a broom are standing or lying on the floor as well as an open book (pages down); she is in front of a storage rack (left to right, top to bottom: 1st row a small chest with a frog ornament; a jar with something black and one single eye, several tilted scrolls; 2nd row books; 3rd row a wicker box with several magical accessoirs, tarot cards, keys, feathers; a kettle, several jars), the area between Raven's legs and her face is well lit, the background is dark but the details are visible; my Instagram nick in the background of the painting.

Jedoch, das war noch nicht das Ende der Inspirationenstange. Ausgehend von oben nachzulesender Hintergrundstory spann ich den Faden weiter. So weit, dass ich den Raven-Content inzwischen auf eine eigene Unterseite ausgelagert habe.

Und es schwirren noch immer Ideen in meinem Kopf herum, an denen ich derzeit arbeite – mehr dann (hoffentlich) nächsten Sonntag!

O. However, that was not yet the end of the inspiration lane. Starting from the background story above, I’m continuing the flow. So far that I moved the Raven content to a separate subpage now.

And there are still further ideas popping up in my brain which are work in process – hopefully, you will hear more of them next sunday.

  • Digital painting, comic style, light beige background: A small, thin light pink frog with several darker pink spots, staring unbelievingly towards the viewer, golden brown frog eyes, a semi-transparent light blue amphibian crest on the head, covering parts of the right eye; an amulet which doesn't fit around the neck anymore and light pink clouds around the frog; the frog is sitting inside an empty collapsed simple golden brown dress; text: "Raven Frogfeet; It wasn't actually a green hopping animal. This was the threat, though, and the witch gave Raven a taste of what it was like to be a frog. Still, since the witch wasn't the youngest anymore and never has been top witch in the best years of her life, the spell partly stuck even after turning Raven back into a human being. Therefore, every so often Raven (or body parts of her) still turns into a frog or parts of it - usually in the most inconvenient situations."

Ebenfalls zurückgekehrt sind die Disney-Serien The Owl House und Amphibia.

Auch wenn ich seit dem letzten Mal keine neue Fanart gezeichnet habe, so habe ich je ein kurzes Review zu den beiden heute erschienen The Owl House und Amphibia Episoden geschrieben. Mehr noch, um hierfür mehr Platz zu haben, habe ich die Amphibia-Inhalte von der Fanart-Seite abgetrennt.

Amphibia-Kenner werden es weiter oben bereits erkannt haben: Im Chamber-of-Witchcraft-Bild gibt es eine kleine Amphibia-Referenz:

Also back are the Disney shows The Owl House and Amphibia.

Although I didn’t draw any new fanart since last time, I wrote a short review of each of the The Owl House and Amphibia episodes released today. Even more, to get more space to do this, I separated the Amphibia content from the fanart page.

Amphibia connoisseurs will have already recognized it: There is a small Amphibia reference in the Chamber of Witchcraft painting:
