I don't usually favour sketchbooks, mainly because a single A4 sketchbook can last me a long time. I can easily get 3 or 4 works from one single page of it, but I didn't want to waste the few unused sketchbooks that I do have. So, I decided the crop them into smaller sketchbooks of A5, A6 and A7, each having 8 or 10 pages and stapled with a black card cover. They're crudely made, with uneven pages, but they'll do fine. Plus, I'm more likely to use them in these limited formats. The first one being the following:
Lulani Greenstar - A6 art booklet (10 pages)
I didn't intend to fill the entire booklet with just one character, but after I drew the first one, I found that more was to come from it. So much so that it ended up being a day in the life of this character. The drawings are of various sizes, and quality, below its A6 format, but they work well. So enjoy meeting the sexy, sultry, elven witch known as Lulani Greenstar. She's been, sort of, expecting you....
Lulani Greenstar, the sexy, sultry, elven witch, warmly greets us...
"Oh, how wonderful for everyone else but me! Completely unannounced and unexpected guests, arriving at an inconvenient time - Do come in!"
The Unfamiliar Familiar
Ah! Now here we see the fabled "Witch's Familiar." What strange and exotic name does Lulani give this little helper?
"Well, I don't know who it belongs to, but I call it "Little Bastard" because it's always tearing up my herb garden - Cats are edible, aren't they?"
The Witch's Brew
Where would any witch be without her cauldron? We can but wonder at what magical potions Lulani is concocting.
"It's called a stew. I do get hungry, you know. Would you like some?"
What happened to the cat?
The Flight of a Witch
Like all good witches, Lulani knows how to fly, but shouldn't she be using a broomstick?
"Piss off! I'm not doing any housework whilst I'm flying. Where's the fun in that?"
The Love Potion
As a working witch, Lulani does all she can to help people with their problems...
"I'm sure you'd like this love potion, but let's be honest here, you're an ugly little fucker, aren't you? It'd just be a waste. I mean, I'm good, but I'm not THAT bloody good!"
|"Burn the Witch!"|
Lulani pays a visit to her good friend, and fellow witch, Karlotta Krane, who looks to be in a spot of bother...
"It seems that half the villagers were cursed with a plague of boils and she got the blame for it. Can't imagine who else could have done it. But don't worry, I'll save her, as soon as she reaches the point where she soils herself. I'm sorry, but she really needs to be taught a lesson. After all, she's blonde, beautiful, and much more popular than I am. In other words - WHAT A TOTAL BITCH!"
Using her powerful magic, Lulani has the ability to raise the dead! What diabolical plans does she have for this horrific creature?
"Nothing much. He was the shoemaker from the village and he owed me money. I just want him to pay me back. Death is no excuse when you're in debt to a witch."
Another of Lulani's tricks is her ability to transform herself into a rabbit! But you can still tell that it's her.
It's your bright eyes, burning like fire.
"Why thank you!....wait, what?"
There's always something that even a witch like Lulani needs to learn about magic. That's why we see her studying here.
"Bollocks! I don't need to learn anything. I'm doing that magic charm for fame, fortune and love that you wanted. That is why you're here, isn't it?"
Well....yes, I suppose so. It's not for me, you understand. Oh no, no, no! It's for a "friend"....Yes, that's right....a "friend"
|The Cock and Balls Magic Charm|
It's....It's....IT'S JUST A COCK AND BALLS!
"You know nothing of witchcraft! It's clearly the "Phallus Rampant" an ancient symbol of fertility and good fortune. Besides, even if it was just a cock and balls, I'm a witch and I drew it, so that makes it a "magic" cock and balls."
You really are a mental-case, aren't you? And if you think I'm paying you for that, you've got another thing coming!
"The shoemaker once thought as you do."
