such an unecological sorceress by barbarasobczynska such an unecological sorceress by barbarasobczynska
a commission for ~malinablue
just a sorceress. (:whisper: actually it seems to me she may be in fact be a rare blue dragoness who was magically turned into a human sorceress by some nasty witch and because of her shame of being turned into such a mediocre creature, the dragoness hid herself deep in the swampy woods, where sometimes - at particularly bright nights - she can see her true nature reflected in the water {and yes,I also think it's pretty much awful that she leaves the lights on in her little hut while going on a nighttime cruise:shakefist: doesn't she know a thing about energy saving?:O_o: I sincerely apologize for drawing such an unecological dragoness/sorceress:blushes:)

It's okay, I think they're energy saving bulbs so it can't be SO VERY bad. ;)

AMAZING! It's so fairy tale, it gives me that magical feeling that I got when I read those stories when I was little. So many people on DA try to do fairy tale pictures but none of them capture the same magic as your do! Maybe you're a MAGICIAN artist! :O

Nie wiem, dlaczego, ale odnoszę wrażenie, że ten krajobraz porośnięty jest futrem niebieskiego niedźwiedzia :aww: Wyzwalasz we mnie niecne instynkty, albowiem już któryś raz z kolei mam ochotę włamać się do Twojego obrazu i uprowadzić władającą nim Genialną Myśl. :smooch:

:giggle:eee tam Gosiu Złotko, genialnej mysli w moim mózgu raczej nie uświadczysz (choćbyś się tam bezwstydnie włamała w stylu Twojego mistrza H.L.:brainless::fear:), ale naturalnie
wciąż mam nadzieję, że się tam kiedyś jakiś geniusz zalęgnie:fingerscrossed:;)), a o niebieskich niedźwiedziach pierwsze słyszę:sherlock::teddy: no, może nie pierwsze, pamiętam taki fragment poematu proza Rimbauda "Bottom" o wielkim niedzwiedziu "o fioletowych dziaslach i siersci osiwialej ze zgryzoty" ale tak, jak jedna jaskolka wiosny nie czyni, tak same tylko fioletowe dziasla (mimo ze fioletowi do blekitu niedaleko na spektrum barw) niedzwiedzia niebieskim nie czynia:no:, ale zaraz zaraz....:idea: z pewnoscia jeden z Troskliwych Misiow byl porosniety niebieskim futrem:hmm:, ale mam nadzieje, ze to nie takim futrem wydaje Ci sie porosniety ten krajobraz:paranoid: bo pamietam, ze futro Troskliwych Misiow bylo natretnie odblaskowe, gdzieniegdzie zdobione serduszkami i tęczami:fear: a tfu! przepaskudna to była wieczorynka

Oh that's really very lovely, Basia, as always. I really adore your art. As for little miss dragoness, well, I used to date her and it amuses me greatly to hear all the hubbub about her lights being on. Hehe. Those are magical candles of course. As far as I recall they emit no pollution, unless you consider honey scent pollution. Too bad she decided she couldn't ever love me as much as I love her and sent me away. I should have loved her a tiny bit less, I suppose.

oh, maybe indeed:idea:, very good idea:clap:, i remember there was one Robert Hass poem, where there was a statement like "Noone is more miserable than a man calling "I'm back!" entering an empty house." Maybe she also deosn't like the feeling that she's coming back to an empty house:sniff:. Still, ecologically-wise it's a crime;):shakefist:

haha, thanks :bow: oh, i wish i was a machine sometimes, I mean creative imaginative productive machine, that would be fun:) (the commission was killing me so much you know, the girl didn't like the first none the second version of the wizardess-commission for her, so i had to sell the previous versions to other people, and i sincerely hope she's going to like this version or I'm afraid I may turn into a killing machine;):evillaugh::gun:(just kidding, but seriously it was frustrating a little)
