This is my entry for the "Black Magic" contest in Dark Balkans group here on the site.

there's obviously an evil witch, who is draining her followers' powers to create some really powerful and evil ancient spell... All the inscriptions around the light are actually the words 'black magic' in all the languages I could find ;]

At first i thought the words were mathematical equations. that would have been awesome and would have given a different meaning to it

This is a deserved winner on #Dark-Balkans Black Magic Contest! Congratulations, btw!
The work is outstanding as once again you managed to portray the key features. I like the way you expressed how the witch is consuming and draining energy from others, making them all her slaves. The entire setting of some cave, as it appears it to me, is a great choice as it is really appropriate for the subject observed. The despair of people surrounding her and her youth and vitality is an amazing contrast which is also in accordance to the subject. Coloring is dark as it should be ...
I also saw this piece of art from another angle. I see her as awakened person, where the light bowl would be a sign of such enlightenment, while the surrounding is dark and people are wallowing in their despair and depression, digging in the dirt, unable to even catch any ray of that vibrant light. They all bow to her as they should to a Mistress that she is.
No matter how you interpret it, this shows what Black Magic could be all about, a way to enlightenment through confrontation with your own darkness within, or as a means of manipulation, you managed to capture both here. That's what I like the most!

Vampirizing others is not the way that leads to the true enlightenment, it gives just a temporary con effect. But once "the witch" is caught, she's dragged through the dirt.  so who falls for such cons is no better than the child with no discerning ability.
 To bow to such "mistress" is the greatest humiliation of oneself. You should be doing better than engage in the childish games. :)

Hi, Thank u very much for the thorough, smart and objective comments... it's nice to read exactly how my art is affecting someone and what thoughts it rises...
Also some constructive critique is always a good thing (from someone who knows what they're talking about) So thanks ;]

It might sound odd, but my favorite part of this picture is the black running up her legs. I think without it the black on the ground would just look like a symbol, but with it on her legs as well, you can see her draining her followers.
