The witch and her familiars enjoying a tranquil afternoon.

Continuing with my Witch and her familiar(s) theme for #inktober, today we have our scholarly witch enjoying an afternoon read whilst her familiars "cat nap" providing her protection and a soft place to lean and snuggle one's feet.

I am enjoying having this structure of witch and animal in black and white for this month. There might be some days where they are not as intricate, depending on what I am about that day.

Having spent so much time laying out, sketching, then inking the piece, I haven't much time nor inclination to go on and on about things.

Let's just say today I love the idea of powerful creatures lazing about in the elixir of the magic perfume of the lady witch, keeping them tranquil and obedient.

I hope all are enjoying #inktober thus far and I hope more Steemians will join in!

Well, welcome back and thank you so much :)

This one is my favorite! Those tigers look like part of her dress. This girl must have a lot of power when the big cats just sit peacefully next to her :)

Thank you for sharing!

I like the idea of such fierce beasts just relaxing with their witchy friend on a rainy afternoon.

I love seeing all the inktober posts! Makes Steem look like a very regular social media even hahaha. I love stark B&W, in photography but certainly also in drawings and anything else. So I'm going to have a blast this month :-)

I think #inktober is a good way for some of us to get back after the hardfork @soyrosa. It's starting to feel 'normal' again.

I'm definitely going for stark dark and light no real midgrounds here, as I like the look and I am also trying to complete something that looks 'done' in the day. I'm glad you like it :)

A witch and her two tigers? An excellent choice for pet, if you know magic that is :).
                       
I like the tigers' different expressions, that one nearby looks a bit surprised or alert hehehe.

I thought a witch could handle a couple of old tigers. Anyway , if they get too sassy, she can just change them into field mice :)

Wow- this is an amazing drawing @donnadavisart!

Thank you so much @opheliafu, I'm excited for the month. It IS inktastic!

Amazing! Loving your #inktober art so far!

I know you probably have more professional software you use to make your digital art, but can you recommend an easy but engaging app to use for amateurs? Thanks :)

Actually I just use an old version of Painter, painter 12. I bought it used a few years ago for under 20 dollars. It's pretty intuitive. I think there are freeware versions of drawing software too. It's funny as I use only a few of the options, basically digital versions of my real stuff like pencils in numbers I like, charcoal, ink in fine point or scratch nib and oil paints. Have fun!
