I myself live on the village, and this picture shows perfectly how people celebrate it there.
Greetings from Poland!
Pozdrowienia z Polski!
Serio? A ja myslałem, że wale ściemę jakich mało... Wiesz... Wóda XD No ale tą stronę pisałem przed Kleo.
Ah, the good old days, before the discovery of "wódka..."
Goodness, it must have taken a while to think about the physics of all those flowing fabrics and flailing braids in the first panel... It's fascinating when a photo "freezes" physics like that, but even more respect goes out to someone who can (fairly accurately!) do it with a drawing.
On a side note, are there not some sort of ceremonial axes/hatchets involved? Or am I thinking of a different polish festival/ceremony?
That would be mountaineer traditions from Carpathian mountains, These are called ciupaga and are a hybrid between an axe and an a mountain walking stick. Dożynki isn't that much important to people of the mountains since they are more shepherds than farmers.
Really neat detailed designs on the caricatures, but the way the figures are colored in look a little glossy and could greatly benefit from some more shading (although the hair looks pretty well done though.) Keep up the good work and be sure to check out my art as well!
