To be a witch by Dandelion-lion To be a witch by Dandelion-lion
I’d never like to be a witch
Except on Halloween
To ride upon a bushy broom
Before a full moon’s gleam

A wart upon my crooked nose
I’d hold a big, black cat
And on my long and shaggy hair
There’d be a pointed hat

I’d drink no potions, no, just eat
Those gooey trick-or-treats
I’d get by stopping house to house
Astride my broom’s rough seat

And when the night is over
And morning streaks the sky
I’d leave my haunted mansion
And broom rides wild and high

Because:

I’d never like to be a witch
Except on Halloween
To ride upon a bushy broom
Before a full moon’s gleam

By Martha J. Robach

Do you see? She is stealing their candyz!
I dont celebrate halloween here in Australia, so it took so long to find that pumpkin bag! I didnt know what to search for. :giggle:

I love this picture!! It is amazingly detailed! I was wondering if I could use this for a digital trailer I'm doing for a class on a poetry book? I will, of course, credit you completely for the image! It is purely educational!

Wow this is awesome! I just started doing photo manipulations. What program did you use to do yours? I just have a microsoft photo program, nothing fancy. Any advise you could give me would be great.

:icondandelion-lion:
Dandelion-lion Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2008
I use photoshop 7.0, its a nice program, but very expensive if you dont have a brother that has a friend that has it ;)

Im not sure about what advice I can give, besides be sure you stock to doing stuff that you would be proud of and stuff that you like. Dont get sucked into the whole ';popular image' thing.

Just practice and experiment. Ive found that most of what Ive learnt is from my own experimentation and fiddling with my manipulations and a few key tutorials and advice. :)

Probibly not. I dont think many people would want any of my deviations as prints. But, if you wish, I can give you a larger version of this so you can make a print of it. Seeing as your the wonderful stock artist :)
