Willow Rosenberg - Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Okay, I admit, this is really not very Witch-ay Woman in it's appearance. But of all the witches I have presented, Willow is by far the most powerful. Come on, 1) She would have destroyed the world when she went all Dark Willow if Xander hadn't talked her down. 2) She created an army of Slayers. And 3) she scored the highest SATs in Sunnydale High history! Well, they never said that on the show, but I'm sure that is the case. Plus she was played by the very cute and very funny Alyson Hannigan. And one big power that Aly brought to the part of Willow was her ability to cry in such a way that she could bring the audience tears. I think Joss Whedon said something like, if you want to break the audiences hearts, just pull in close on Aly crying.

So this is the last of the Witches for now. I tried to keep the posts varied and surprising. And not alway the stereotypical looking witch either. The only one I left out that I would have liked to draw was Samantha from Bewitched. But Brian Stelfreeze recently posted a beautiful watercolor painting of Elizabeth Montgomery on his blog and I am not following that. :)

Happy Halloween folks!

This was sketched in my sketchbook and painted in Photoshop.

Thanks Brian. Thanks Royce. This was a quickie as far as trying to pull off a likeness, but too long for just a blog sketch. :)
