Something I've always wanted to draw, but never got the chance to (until a few days ago).
Everyone has that one thing that scared them in their childhood and the "The Witch Woman" from the animated short; Teeny Tiny and the Witch Woman (made in 1980), was the thing that scared me back in the day.
Now, the story itself isn't scary at all and wasn't what scared me back when I was five. The opening of it and (mostly) it was the look and the voice of "The Witch Woman" (which I think they refer to her as Aunty). That grizzly and un-human voice was extremely bizarre and very unsettling. And that voice she does after running into the "mountain" of needles scared me so much that when I first watched this back when I was five, I ran out of my house screaming (mind you at this time, I've watched countless number of horror movies, I was not easily scared) and had nightmares for months. I have not seen Teeny Tiny short since then....
Until recently, I saw the VHS tape for Teeny Tiny & The Witch Woman at the libaray for sale for 50 cents and bought it. Now have seeing this again for the second time, I can say it not as scary as I remember it, but that Witch's voice and the way she was illustrated, I can see why I was scared of this back then (her voice still kind of startles me).
If anyone would want to see this animated short (which, if you haven't seen this before, I would highly recommend anyone to watch it at least once).

Well anyways, the drawing took one hour to draw out and to shade and fill.
