Newgrounds Background Image Theme



This illustration was inspired by an old Hungarian belief. It's about the shortest day of the year, Luca day or the Witchy day.

According to the tradition, Luca's chair had to be made until Christmas. The person who made the chair sits on this chair at midnight on the 25th December and can see the witch. But after that the person should hurry home because the witch starts chasing them. The maker of the chair spread poppy-seeds on the ground because the witch can't resist and picks up the seeds and eats them all. And the person can get home safely.

Wow nice work

This is some intense work I love the black and white theme or two tone color here the visual itself is pretty good with some nice element to some story or some happenings love the detail of it all.

This is one art piece that you need no chnages what so ever you have done a fantastic job here so no changes here


You do so much with every little detail to make this look ethereal and magic. The goat's eyes are obvious without pupils and being three, but the girl's black eyes and lips only make her already distant face more mysterious.

The transparent poppy bulbs look so alien in bluish light, it makes the entire piece otherworldly, fitting the girl and the goat.

So I understand the witch but... is there a story behind the three-eyed goat too? Visual manifestation of the poppy seeds she clings to...?

She doesn't seem so bad at all like this. Warm embrace, strange eyes but more lonely than evil, artful poppy seeds surrounding... interesting atmosphere here...

Interesting to read the story with Luca's chair too!
