pic 3: marzanna, goddess of winter and death/rebirth.

there’s still a tradition in poland to end winter/start spring by “drowning marzanna” AKA parading a giant straw doll thru town and dipping her in every puddle and river.

pic 1: strzyga.

a strzyga is an undead creature that drinks human blood at night. they were created when a person with two souls died, because only one of the souls would move on to the afterlife. one way to defeat a strzyga is to sleep a whole night in her lair. since the name appears to be derived from the latin word for owl, i gave her some birdlike features.

:blobugh: tumblr's upcoming policy of only permitting nudity that's "political or newsworthy" or otherwise "found in art" does not bode well for my Blog of Inconsequential Dongs & Boobies of No Particular Import.

a very slow-going . also this is totally not how women did their eyes during late baroque, but i love love love drawing them like that :p

and i have such a backlog of designs to put up, if i put up one a day i'll probably be done by new years 😂 😂 😭

what i've learned from this meme is that i need to do this *every* time i draw. because holy heck, can you ever tell when the eyes are lopsided now! :-p
