The Witch's Son by Auroaronkitten The Witch's Son by Auroaronkitten
Well goddamn.

I don't think I have EVER spent so long on 1 picture, it's almost like I've grown attached to it. I don't think I'll ever be happy with how it looks, but I've reached the point now where I'm just like.. FUCKITALL.

This wasn't intentionally done for halloween, but I guess I timed it pretty well. Threw in a couple pumpkins and VOILA. You got yourselves a festive piece! It started off with me just wanting to paint a picture that included my favourite flowers of all time (Wisteria), and it just evolved from that.

The one pretty whopping mistake I made and I've now noticed is his cigarette isn't smoking. I might change that in the future, but for now, lets all just assume he's hipster and smoking a LIT cigarette is soo mainstream..

edit// my 3rd daily deviation. Thanks alot!

First of all, I love this. This is amazing. Second, are you writing a story on this or something? I would totally read that
Also, what if he had reasons for not lighting the cigarette? Like that guy from TFIOS
"It's a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don't give it the power to do its killing."

Hello, I was wondering if I could use this piece of art in my background slideshow on my computer. If you do not want me to, I understand perfectly.

DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF
YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO 
FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your
crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, 
your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read
this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 
DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR 
CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY 
WORKS

a lot of times I find myself holding a cigarette that must have died hours, or minutes, or moments, or even aeons ago. 7o me that is sign that  I was having a good time and last track of it. I don't smoke to waste my cigarettes, I smoke to waste time.
