Drawing project – W.I.T.C.H. 20th anniversary

And FINALLY, after… years, I am glad to post an article in this section of my blog!

20 years ago, in April, a wonderful comic was issued in Italy: Disney’s W.I.T.C.H., originally created by Elisabetta Gnone, Barbara Canepa and THE MASTER, Alessandro Barbucci. In 2001 I was roughly as old as the five main characters of this comic and I still love it today. Well, I like it up to issue #60, then things changed a bit and it was not so enjoyable anymore for me. But still, Witch has been an important part of my life and thanks to Barbucci’s wonderful style it is also one of the reasons I started to draw.

When I realized that this year is the 20th anniversary of this comic, I interrupted my “non-drawing period” and wanted to make a little tribute to this comic that means so much to me.

Enjoy 🙂

As always – please do not steal my artwork! If you repost it somewhere, thank you a lot! But don’t forget to credit me as artist and link to my blog 🙂

The five W.I.T.C.H.

If you know this comic, which one is your favorite W.I.T.C.H.? For me, I would say it is Will – and it is also my favorite of these portraits. I am not very satisfied of how I made Cornelia, she reminds me a bit too much of the Italian singer Patty Pravo – but OK. If I will have time in the future I might revise her.

Elyon and Phobos

Also here I am not 100% satisfied by Phobos – I pictured him much more handsome in my mind but… it turned out a bit different than how I wanted him to be. That’s another one I might want to redo in the future.

Cedric and Orube

Am I one of those who stopped reading the comics after what happened to these two, because I was shipping them? Hell yes I am! I still ship them and I will never give up!


And here she is, my favourite character ever. Want to see how my drawing changed over time? I have been drawing her regularly since when I got my iPad and I will now share with you my awful drawings of some years ago (the first sketched one is from May 2018, the second one is – I think – from 2019 and the third one should be 2020):
