Forever Young by Saccstry Forever Young by Saccstry
A vain witch eating souls to keep herself eternally youthful. But each time she ingests a soul, her skin rots bit by bit, microscopic amounts really. But she must eat many souls to stay young, so over time her skin has rotted away to form raw holes on her face. Eventually her entire body will become consumed by decay, but she refuses to let her fresh skin look old.

This is the first time I didn’t draw bangs since like..forever :o I drew her with bangs like always originally and then I thought, ‘I wonder what she’d look like with a bare forehead’ and..to my surprise she looked cuter! Still I’ll mostly draw bangs though XD

Smoke texture from CGtextures [link]

When holes in your face Can't be covered with makeup you'll still stay there... Beautiful really demonstrates the fear of death.

This one's pretty simple compared to some of your other pieces, but it's a striking kind of simple. Even though the holes in her face aren't really up to your usual, she looks fabulous, and it's great to see you experimenting, with the bare forehead and the kinda frizzy curly hair :D And her hand, even though it looks kind of broken, is strange and really pretty to look at. This is wonderful~

This looks amazing! (as always :giggle:) She does look pretty cute with her hair like that too. I was actually trying to figure out why it looked a little different to usual lol.
The hand looks great by the way! Hands are such a pain to draw XD

I never knew there was a name for the fear I have. Everyone just thinks I'm weird LOL.

But, I shouldn't have searched trypophobia on google.
