Satan Worshiping Hag - NOT! (Pagan Culture's Sexy, Dark Bloody Blogoversary Party 2012)

For the 2012 version of Pagan Culture's Blogoversary Party, the theme is Sexy, Dark, and Bloody. We are to post a stereotype of Witches/Pagans in Fiction and re-write it, using any chosen medium... writing, drawing, etc,etc. Well I did a combination for my stereotype... (1) that Witches worship Satan (2) that Witches are old ugly hags. I combined the two into one.

BE WARNED...
THIS POST CONTAINS
POSSIBLE OFFENSIVE HUMOR

My medium of choice is pencil, paint, and marker. I like to draw, and although I painted the first drawing, I felt I was running out of time, so the following two pieces are plain old pencil drawings.

STEREOTYPE
Satan Worshiping Old Hag
Yes, I know the figure I chose for Satan is silly, and the old hag is ugly, 
but we are talking about silly and ugly stereotypes here, right?
Where did the blood come from? Well I will leave that up to your imagine...



ACTUAL WITCH IN RITUAL
Real life Pagans and Witches are peaceful, loving people, and since I often perform a Simple Ritual sitting down indoors, I wanted to portray an example of this.

REAL LIFE WITCH
Real Witches are normal people that live pretty ordinary lives like most other people, so I did a second drawing to represent a Witch... a woman walking in the forest... I've been doing this alot lately.

  1. I love the contrast between realistic witchy fiction and the stuff people have made up. I'm still giggling about the uncertain origins of the blood--too hilarious!

    I love your Witch in Jeans ;-)

  2. Love the pencil drawings & 'real' representation as opposed to the stereotype (mind that's an great bit of art too LOL) for a while I toyed with doing a 'WANTED' real witch line-up - of course the real witch would have been the one in jeans & T-shirt & the others would have been just assorted dudes rounded up from a costume party ;) Pleased I called by & great post :)

  4. Such nice drawings and very realistic. I can relate to your "real life witch" since that's what I do. Walk in the forrests a lot and do rituals. Nice blog you have. Greetings from FInland
