The Ved'ma
The Ved'ma is a russian witch who sold her soul to the devil in exchange of magic powers. She is young and beautiful in the South and ugly and old in the North. She torments essentially the farmers by making rot the harvests, by curdling the fresh milk, by contaminating the cattle or by stealing the wheat. She transforms herself into animals, the magpie being her most malefic shape and she rides a poker to move.

Bonjour Nephyla ! J'ai vu que tu proposais la Ved'ma en format A5, est-il possible de le commander en format poster (heuuu A3 voir plus grand), aussi ? *étoiles dans les yeux*

Because I'm a sensitive guy and pretty art makes me weepy. Also, because I'll never be THAT good.
