Thanks! Huge Pratchett fan and I always knew I would get to painting everybody's favourite witching duo

These ladies are what I see when I read the books. Excellent

They ARE Nanny and Esme. Best portrait of them I ever seen. Superb job.

Really beautiful work. Read all the Pratchett Witches books to my daughter, including the Tiffany Aching books, but none more fun than the Granny/Nanny books. What attention to detail!

How long does it take you to bring an image like this from the original sketch to fully rendered? Just curious.  ;)

It was only a matter of time before someone carried out the threat and did it, I suspect quite a lot of beer might have been involved, because no way you'd sing that anywhere sober.

It's up there with other rude songs like The Harlot of Jerusalem, Dead Eye Dick and Eskimo Nell

Just awesome:heart: Reading the The Shepherd's Crown right now. Allow me a quote!

“Many people could say things in a cutting way, Nanny knew. But Granny Weatherwax could
listen in a cutting way. She could make something sound stupid just by hearing it.”
