The Witch's House .: Viola :. by RubySmiley The Witch's House .: Viola :. by RubySmiley
So I tried out a new style of painting, and I actually like how it turned out, though I sort of goofed on some areas ;u; Like the face. I don't really know how to shade the face properly in this style. But oh well.

If you haven't played The Witch's House, I suggest you do! It's an amazing game. If you liked Ib, then I think you'll like this game as well. The story in this game, however, hit me harder than it did in Ib. Give it a go. You won't regret it.

except maybe when it gives you nightmares but that's what horror games are supposed to do to you right

For me, the messy look of this particular artwork is one of its charming points. It makes Ellen look more 'mysterious'. XD

were they friends from the beginning?

did viola know that her friend is a bad witch before they switched bodies?

RubySmiley Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, they were friends from the beginning. 

Viola didn't know Ellen had bad intentions because one rule for the spell to work was for the other person to trust her completely. Viola trusted her, and that's how Ellen was able to switch bodies with her.

I love Ib! Indeed "The Witch's House" ending hit me like no other. Extreme plot twist there.

RubySmiley Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know! I was just like, "what. WHAT" and omg it was so sad

The plot-twist was really well-executed (in my opinion, at least). Like, I didn't expect it. At all. And then you look back at everything and it all makes sense and gjfal;kgjafl;kgfkjl

Exactly! The notes from the house, Viola's actions, it kind of tied up all the loose ends.
It was definitely different from many other games. XD

I love this picture! It's going in my favorites. I really enjoy playing in the witch's house, but I can only open the program once after downloading it, but after that it just won't open. No notice pops up or anything, it's very frustrating, if anyone can help me that'd be great. Great job again on the artwork! It's soooo beautiful!

Thank you so much for your kind comment! I really appreciate it! But I'm terribly sorry for the very late reply.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to fix it... I'm really sorry. D: It's been months already. I hope you figured it out and got it to work. If you didn't, I'll ask some people that I know if they have any idea how to fix it. ;u;

Gonna have to play that at some point.

Painting in a new style always messes with you, what the hell do you shade and where? XD;

If you wanted to improve on this, i'd be all for it. Maybe you should have shaded her nose area a little more. Not nessecarily with nostrils but in the normal shojo anime way? o3o;;.. Not really sure, play around with it

It's a fun game, but lots of jumpscares! I can't count the number of times I shrieked and collapsed from heart attacks. (While my friend, who was playing with me, just sat there with a pokerface and did not even move a single muscle when something popped out unexpectedly...)

Ikr =A=;;

Sobs, shojo isn't really a forte of mine. I'm more used to shonen, but I think I've improved since drawing this. Maybe I'll post some more drawings of different styles. Thank you for the input, though! I'll try my best!
