I love witches.Can I get some character art for witches.Art for females of any magical orientation also welcome.
>>77690419Lets see what I've got.
>>77690822>>77690846Same character as the previous, I think.
I think they are cute.
Why do they wear the hat? In my setting, it's representative of being closer to the moon. Some witches wear extremely tall hats. Outsiders believe it's like an antenna, but those in the know are aware that it's purely aesthetic and symbolic.
I think this one gets posted each witch thread. She deserves it though
>>77690822>>77691060I have a few more I could post, but without the hats they kinda just look like generic female magic users, rather than witches. I can post those if you're interested. If not, I hope you found SOMETHING useful from my image-dump at least.
>>77690419>>77690822>>77691106Forgot to tag OP in my last one. But yeah, that's the end of my image dump.
>>77690419Artist is homare. She looks great.
>>77691071it's some guy's OC waifu, apparently he likes them smelly
>>77691069In the real world, I think it's the same reason as "wizards". Something something something the myth of Odin disguising himself as a human man with a wide-brimmed hat who went around performing magic.In "my setting" the hat isn't really required for either wizards or witches. It just kinda became a thing because a magic academy made it part of their uniform and it's a quick way to identify people trained in "civilized" magical arts now. Most true "witches" (aka the ones who learn magic outside of an academy) don't wear the hats.
>>77690822>>77691301Someday I'll learn to link posts properly. Someday. Didn't have this one in my collection yet. Do now. Thanks. >>77691278
>>77691339>>77691320No problem friend.
>>77692026>I came to an a Japenis culture sight to complain about animeYou need to go back and stay go.
>>77692026How bout this m8?
Witches should be this
>>77692026>I came into a thread about a thing I don't like to complain about it!>How could this happen to me?!?I mean, the fact that the topic picture was a fucking manga shot should have made it clear what you were getting into. Retard.
>>77692096That's a hag you stupid fuck
>>77692096>>77692218Hags are peak witch. Anime witches are cringe.
>>77691616>>77692026Absolute shit take.>>77692218>>77692263Anime waifu witches and disgusting hags are both peak witch, depending on the scene.
>>77692039What the fuck is the propaganda? DEATH TO ALL WITCHES
>>77692066Anime was still good when 4chan was made. now it's shit.>>77691176based
>>77692026mass repliers get the rope
Ex convict witch coming through.
>>77693411What was she in for?
>>77693051Why are there so few centaur magic users?
>>77692991Anyone have any more cute voodoo witches?
>>77692923>Anime was still good when 4chan was made. now it's shit.Something tells me that at least one of the pictures you've quoted came out before you discovered 4chan
>>77692981I always wandered since Beatrice had alternative model which wasn't used in game, was she supposed to be Chosen or Arthorias companion as her prototype?
How did the japs have such catch for fantasy soul comparing with modern west?
>>77691069It's a matter of appearances. The king must hold his court in his finery or lose face and respect. You don't want to summon the Other Beings and lose their attention because your hat is small and impotent
>>77693614Having cancer pretty much.
>>77695743Because for them western aesthetics are wondrous and foreign so their depictions capture the spirit of the things. It helps that they are already good artists.It's a "cool" costume.For westerners it's boring mundane history that reminds them of dreaded days of compulsory education, so they only capture the materialist form rather than the romance of it. Videogames certainly aren't helping the matter.
>>77697064>For westerners it's boring mundane history that reminds them of dreaded days of compulsory education,Didn't westerners treating history the same manner as algebra?
>>77690419>no male witchesYou guy do know the original term is agendered and means “Wiccan” basically, right?
>>77698576>>no male witches-> >>77691272
>>77697064>Videogames certainly aren't helping the matter.You mean?
>>77698576Post femboy witches then
>>77693960There's not much art of centaurs in general
>>77698576Terms are not defined by their etymology.
>>77692026then post good ones retard
>>77699057Cute. Alva's set is based. Especially the helmet.
>>77691879new character idea. thanks
High quality thread, but I've noticed a pattern...Almost all of these witches have draped around them a fatass cloak or cape and it seems like the most impractical piece of clothing possible - you could easily trip over it in a fight if you're forced to run/dodge backwards, it could get caught on rocks or tree branches, and an opponent could grab or step on it and trap the witch. Why on earth is a cloak the quintessential witch uniform item? You could argue some of these downsides don't apply cause not all witches get in fights but what upsides even come with a cloak?>it's to keep warmThen wear layers like a normal person, a thin piece of fabric will do nothing besides maybe catch raindrops>it's for protectionAgain it's a thin piece of fabric, so unless you're fighting mosquitoes it won't help much. Maybe some of these capes are magical or enchanted or something, but they look pretty normal to me>it's to disguise oneself or obfuscate one's outlineAn OK argument, but only one that applies if the witch is being hunted, and we've already established a cloak has far too many downsides to be useful in a scrap. Not to mention there's got to be better ways to achieve the same result>it's cuteI concede>you can prepare spells or something under your cloakMaybe some spells require certain recognizable finger movements or they're preparing magical tools that could assist in a fight, like having a gun hidden in your coat pocket. That said, a witch could simply remain hidden while preparing to do away with the need to hide their hands, and a sharp opponent could recognize that a witch is winding up an attack due to experience and attack while the witch is busy preparingIt at least kind of makes sense with rogues and shit cause they don't want to get in a fight, they sneak out of sight the entire time. Can any witchfags make an argument in favor of cloaks?Honestly you could say the same for the witch pointy hat too
>>77703815>Then wear layers like a normal personcloaks were the raincoats and winter coats of their time, and were worn even with layers of regular clothing.>it's a thin piece of fabricnot all the time, sometimes it's woolen or even a pelt.>makes sense with rogues and shit cause they don't want to get in a fightimplying witches get into more fights than rogues.Historically speaking, cloaks aren't fighting wear, soldiers marching in harsh weather would usually remove their cloaks before taking to the field of battle. That said, there are however fighting techniques that make use of cloaks on the offhand. You can wrap it around your arm to achieve a similar effect as padded armour, you can also whip it against your opponent's weapon to either catch or displace a blow, and you can use it to obscure your weapon's movements.
>>77699727I mean, sure, but, it's still nice if people knew their roots. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
>>77692218>Witches have to be human>Classic witches aren't hags/cronesI hate nu tg
>>77705127hates u too
>>77705037Sure. But "there should be male witches because the root word used to be gender neutral" is about as useful of a statement as "idiots shouldn't be allowed to vote because that's what the societal class of idiotes in ancient Rome meant".
>>77705154It's a useful statement to put modern assumptions into a wider, broader perspective. Witches as a feminine thing is a modern meme/idea/perpetuation of the the last millennium. Globally women are easier to prosecute in general, not just hocus pocus accusations. Men have more luxury to dabble.
>>77704835pretty good points anon, i forgot these bitches live in the middle ages and cloaks are the best they got. not to mention witches might be mischievous but they're also non confrontational and tend to do their witchy shit safe in their covens or whatever
>>77705138Just admit you don't like witches, only nerdy/spooky girls in pointy hats
>>77705214>Witches as a feminine thing is a modern meme/idea/perpetuation of the the last millennium.Yes. That is what a witch is by the modern usage of the term. Usage of words determins their meaning. I know what you are getting at. But we all know in actuality you are just trying to be an utter smartass.
>>77705767No? I'm on the "post more male witches" train. >Usage of words determins their meaning.I mean you can argue science/tech is literal magic. Smartasses would attempt (in bad faith) to argue the definition isn't that. I'm not that kind of smartass. In fact I see the leniency behind words. Be more open minded.
>>77705486Yeah pretty much their fashion is heavily tied to their time period. You usually see more liberties taken with what they wear when they're removed from the medieval context. And sometimes a witch being dressed in a more utilitarian manner is used to convey that that particular witch gets more physical compared to others.
>>77705508>>77705127you know, you can blame 15th century German witch hunters for coming up with the sexy witch idea.
>>77706145But the most dangerous kind of female witch was the old midwife, capable of turning your own child into another witch - or just kill it/offer it to Satan.
>>77706291Of course, I just think the term "classical witch" has no bearing on whether they're hags or not, when there are plenty of depictions of younger witches throughout history.
>>77690419>I love witches.But do witches love you?
>>77706545I wish...>tfw no witch gf
Got a couple collected, let me see...
>>77692026Mass replying like this should be grounds for a hanging
>>77693197>>77708560Wouldn't mass reply if you had better taste!
>>77708880Getting a bit busy here so I'll leave with a thread question: What is adequate housing for a witch? Just a swamp hut, something more luxurious, maybe even a tower like those big-beard wizards get?
>>77709036depends on the witch and their focus. A witch with a strong connection to nature and the manipulation of natural life might twist a sapling into an elaborate tree house, another one closer to civilization might come into possession of a castle or manor house. A small time witch might be content plying her trade out of a small cottage. My witch PC was content in a rotting hovel where her hag mother was killed because she knew nothing else.
>>77692026my only gripe is that most of the witches in these threads look 12fuck's sake witches are supposed to look like they hold hidden lore, it takes time to do thatmake them grown women at least
If she doesn't have a big floppy hat, I'm not interested.Glad there are tasteful anons ITT
>>77708593>Wouldn't mass reply if I wasn't retarded!ftfy
>>77700648>>77711573>>77714678Witch x Knight/Warrior in general looks pretty wholesome concept
None of this art is accurate, what the hell? Much like how a wizard's power is stored in his beard, a witch's power is stored in her bush. I can't see the magical aptitude of any of these alleged witches.
>>77715349>a witch's power is stored in her bush.Their spells stored within the hats
>>77705154It’s not “the root word is gender neutral” it’s “before it was distorted by fantasy, which literally meant ‘believer of Wicca’.”Male witches exist and are alive now. Witch isn’t “female counterpart to wizard or warlock” witch is “pagan practitioner of Wicca,” it’s a gender neutral term. It’d be cool if among all the coomposting someone had a bit of imagination and posted some original ideas that hark back to what a witch actually is in its pagan roots, rather than just hot anime girls in pointy hats.
Need somewhere to post this and I didn't see a character art thread. They could be martial mages I guess.
>>77715460I hate the notion of witch as the female counterpart to wizard, as maid is to butler. But then I also prefer witches in the old fairytale sense of a wicked, unscrupulous, and corrupt magician that's far too in touch with demons and dark spirits, bargains for arcane knowledge, steals youth/bodies for immortality and is vaguely (or overtly) cannibalistic, was once human not anymore, or at least not entirely. That kind of witch.
>>77695607Comfiest fucking manga ever.
>>77717513>Need somewhere to post thisI'm interested, why?
>>77704835Cloaks played a very important role in the Middle Ages besides being the optimal clothing for pretty much any weather you could still use it formallyYou also could use it as a hat if needed when too hot, as long as you manage length it shouldn’t hinder movement, concealment, you can use it defensively and wrap your arm to block incoming strikes, use it as a blanket, throw it to distract enemies etc
>>77715349Good post. This thread has terrible taste.
>>77691879Sir Bearingtons valiant friend Mage Gorillaron.
I am fucking tired of young, attractive witches. Are you coomers or something? Either that or lolis. It's annoying and clearly you like the flawed aesthetic more than the witchy idea.
>>77723537inb4 "nofun" or "you're on 4chan"
>>77723537Be the change you want to see in the world faggot. Maybe I'd have more proper witches if people like you posted them instead of bitching about this weeks buzzword boogeyman.
>>77723621For every hag you post, ten more lolis/babes/whores/sexy sorceresses are posted in turn
>>77723650I know, I'm posting them. Give me more options.
>>77723704No. You are terrible and a plague. Better you stick to your trash tastes than infect my own.
>>77723724I think you made a mistake. This is the WITCH thread, where you belong is the bitch thread.
>>77723537Post some pics, faglord. You can add to the thread too.
>>77691845Sauce? Reverse gives nothing
>>77723704>>77724261>135 imagesUhhhh no thanks? You already killed the thread
It's good to see witch art thread where I don't know more than 3 pictures already
>>77723537>REEE REEE REEEDon't you have male fighter murderhobo thread to post in or something?
>>77724989So you don't have any pics and you are too stupid to be able to find any.
>>77695743They don`t. It`s 90% shit 9% not your type 1% what you are looking for, just as anywhere else. For every "soul" "comfy" "tg_approved" mange there`s insufferable amount of low quality bait. Don`t buy into the weeb rhetoric, the level of information pollution among developed countries is always the same. TL:DR it`s shit everywhere
>>77703815You are very correct, but there is a way to keep the "hat and cloak" look while not being obstructed. Gambeson. Just wear one, put a hat on and voila.
>>77705127>Witches should only have 1 look which is coincidently the one I preferHow miserable can you be?
>>77725993And yes, of all pics in my dedicated folder I clicked on one which has short crap, that doesn`t even resemble gambeson much. 1 retard award please
>>77725993What for she's carrying ammo pouches?
>>77727501Tactical material component pouches
>>77725993That is the worst fucking Gambeson I’ve ever seen. One solid swing to the mid section would almost cleave that bitch in half
>>77733887bump yourself off a bridge
>>77723537>Have amazing magic powers>Make yourself look hot and youngIt's no rocket science autismo. Why would you look ugly if you don't have to?
>>77731406>>77731512But she's no a magic user of any kind
>>77695607>>77719249Even with combat walkchair in recent chapter?
>>77719249Agreed>>77737758Have you tried not being easily triggered by non-issues?
>>77738321I don't, it's just unfortunate timing that makes it somewhat funny. They even have in-setting ideological restrains on curing the disabled with magic.
>>77690419How would you fellas do a witch in heavy armor? Been messing with a character design but not sure if I want to keep the hat. Kept a cloak and lots of runes and trinkets but still not sure if that’s witch-y enough. Should I give her the hat kind of just hung back? Put a metal cap under it?
>>77740357... put her in armour?I can't post an image, because limit already reached, so grab thosehttps://imgur.com/a/9NCIpMx>inb4 shit artI know. It's the concept that counts, plus I don't exactly have my own collection optimised to search for that stuff specifically.
