rocaille said: theory: anon is apparently blissfully unaware of the worldwide historical use of bandanas (or hair wraps), and would rather send cowardly antagonistic messages

OHHHHHHH it was about my hair wrap, you think?

hahaha

well

having hair in my face is a pet peeve of mine and I like the way it looks, so

Revamped my commissions post! Things are pretty tough for me financially right now because I’m unemployed and at uni 5 days a week. Crazy times!

Basic info:

  • After payment is received through paypal, I’ll send a sketch to be approved. After I’ve finished, I’ll send the image file through email.
  • No super explicit stuff, but mild gore/ tasteful nudity is fine!
  • I currently have 10 slots open.
  • Contact me at carriwitchett@outlook.com to express interest in or ask me a question relating to a commission ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Please share! The 10th person to commission me will get something extra :D

Why are you such a wigger?

@Anonymous

wizard battle

a brief explanation of some recent posts:

wizard battle is an online character design competition, of sorts.

Wizards will be divided into 1on1 battles in a randomized bracket. The images of the 2 battling wizards will be posted on twitter. Spectators will be given 24 hours to pledge their power (vote) for one wizard. At the end of the 24 hour period the votes will be tallied and the victorious wizard will be announced. The victors will proceed to the next round.

  • notifications and voting will take place via this twitter account- @mjarocki_art
  • a tumblr blog is dedicated to it, as well!
  • submissions will close tonight or early tomorrow, I think.

so yeah! please vote for my creations, Nawat and Clown!

@Carriwitchett
my second wizard..
He’s known as “Clown”. His specialization is unarmed fighting and his ability to create doubles of himself. His true self is immune to combat magic. When in a fight, he summons his doubles and rushes at the enemy. Confused, his opponent hesitates, and he goes in for the kill.
Clown is an enigmatic character whose only known characteristic to others is his apparent lack of regard for his appearance. He and Nawat know each other after they fought, years ago. It’s said that Nawat, after piercing the illusion of his doubles, attempted to bring him down using his own illusions, but nothing worked. Intrigued, he decided to walk away.
It’s rumoured that Nawat sent him the mask that he wears now, to “brighten up his dull outfit”.

When he’s midway through casting an illusion, Nawat becomes covered in a shifting, multicoloured veil that confuses his opponent. However, the main reason he does this is because he likes the look of it, to be honest.

My wizard for the 2014 wizard battle!
His name’s Nawat. He’s basically an all-powerful seer and master of illusions. He also loves pretty trinkets.
If asked why he has 6 arms, he’ll say it’s to give him an advantage in battle (which it does) but really, it’s so he can wear more bracelets.

I made an inspiration chart.
It’s a really fun way to organize what inspires me and what I try to use in my own work.
I just realized, it’s basically a summary of my inspo blog, funnily enough

It is certainly not realistic to hope that a majority of men…will soon see the light and find that it is in their own self-interest to grant complete equality to women… After all, there are few areas that are really “denied” to men…: men who have a need for “feminine” involvement with babies or children gain status as pediatricians or child psychologists, with a nurse (female) to do the more routine work; those who feel the urge for kitchen creativity may gain fame as master chefs; and of course, men who yearn to fulfill themselves through what are often termed “feminine” artistic interests can find themselves as painters or sculptors, rather than as volunteer museum aides or part-time ceramists, as their female counterparts so often end up doing;.. how many men would be willing to change their jobs..?

Those who have privileges inevitably hold on to them, and hold tight, no matter how marginal the advantage involved, until compelled to bow to superior power of one sort or another.

Thus, the question of women’s equality—in art as in any other realm—devolves not upon the relative benevolence or ill-will of individual men, nor the self-confidence or abjectness of individual women, but rather on the very nature of our institutional structures themselves and the view of reality which they impose on the human beings who are part of them.
