And because I feel bad for my lack of activity here, have another thing I worked on recently: Ala al-Din’s cute but easily jealous jinni friend. She is a fairly weak jinn (due to her age and the fact she was stuck in a ring for awhile) which explains why her flame is a natural color. More powerful jinn–such as the one Al’s mother gets from the magic lamp her son gives her–are either blue or green. When tired or lacking energy (in her jinni form), her colors become a muted blue and her scarf becomes smokey.
I might change her jinni form eye colors in the future but we’ll see!
Btw sometimes I post sketches that never see the light of day here on my twitter so if you want to follow that and tolerate my ramblings, just click here!
A new witch I made for my fairy tale story, Adanna!
Adanna has the ability to read people’s futures, more specifically when a major event in their life time will occur by using the three clock hands in her hat. When combined, she can use them as a wand as well to do simple magic tricks.
Much like many of the witches in Märchen though, her talent isn’t sought out by her customers since who wants to know WHEN something will happen to them and not WHAT? So, to make money, she creates and even fixes clocks. All clocks bought from her are exactly on time, making her popular with the more punctual type.
She wears a more complex outfit than many witches wear due to living in a major city but she wears the shawl her mother gave her before she left to find her fortune.
Btw she’s green and deals with time because it’s a play on the Greenwich Mean Time, a place in London that stands as our global time standard (ha ha ha~). Colors are probably going to change. Hope you like and are all doing well! <333
Danielle-Todd is a medium who delivers calls from the dead to their intended targets via ‘phone’. Since people usually have regrets or questions towards the dead she often gets customers to come to her to hold séances. People enjoy coming to her more than having her come to them because her sudden visits are often startling–if not unsettling–and the 'customer’ is forced to give a tip they hadn’t expected to give that day. Not that Danielle-Todd verbally asks for them but it’s generally a good idea after the lengths she goes to deliver her messages.
Unlike most witches, her natural talent is actually quite popular and keeps her steady financially. Despite this, she does like to sell flowers and honey on the side as a hobby. Her owl, Azrael, helps notify her when the flowers are at their best to be cut.
Her hat belonged to her father until he passed it onto her when she went to find her fortune (in the witch community it is considered good luck for a starting witch to be presented with an article of clothing from their parents, guardian or closest companion [that and it helps when they feel lonely/homesick since witches generally leave around the age of 13]). She looks up to her father and has even shared information about him to a few of her clients. Apparently, he’s a very tall man with a black, wide brimmed hat–much like hers–and a black cloak, often seen pulling along a cart. What his profession is that involves said cart is unknown (because no one wants to ask).
Hope you like! Also if you can figure out who her father is based off of then congrats to you ;)
