Witches weren't burnt in England. Not a single one. Heretics were. And witches were burnt in Scotland.

Its very good. A very sad subject, but very good. I have been interested by the witch trials and have some facts for you that you may not know. The Inquisition would have shaved all the hair off her body and she would have been dressed in a very thin white gown, because it was beleived that the girl could have hidden spells in her hair and clothes. Also, the way they would have arranged the wood around the center of the bonfire, most of the men and women would likely have sufficated on smoke before the flames even touched them. In Salem however, it was custom to hang the women rather than burn them. Its all very horrible but thoughs are the facts.

This is a nice picture.

One gripe that I have about it... no one was burned during the salem witch trials. They didn't burn witches in America, they hung them.

But historical inaccuracies aside, its a nice pic.

Meh, its cool. Witches were still burned in Europe, so I could easily imagine this as a scene in 15th century England.

Wonderful art...
The only mistake I see is the fact that the Salem hysteria victims were hanged, not burned, that was more Europe's thing.
Although I did find out today that a "Negro servant woman" apparently intentionally set fire to a house and was consequently burned at the stake for her arson.

This is really well done, though her boob is...huge O.o Maybe the townsfolk were jealous, so they decided to burn her? *lame joke* Seriously, this is very good. *thumbs up*

Thank you for the lame joke. -unimpressed-
And they did not burn her because of her boob size.
It's a good thing I know you, if anyone else had said it I would have killed them.

I really like the feel of it.
The Witch trials were interesting and I'm glad you drew this!
I like her hair.The braid is a nice touch and I love all the details you put into it.
Great job!

I don't think it is a braid... It just looks like her hair is wrapped in string.

Her breast is a little big... But anime/manga seems to revolve around that.

Eh, Braid or wrapping of the hair it still looks good!
Maybe its both...half braid half wrap?
I mean for goodness sake she probably didn't have time to do it good.
It all works out.

I like this. You have a very cute manga style X3 and from me, that's a big compliment since I've grown weary of manga styles in general ^^; Yours is very good though! This picture is so sad. OnO I want to save her!
I agree with a previous commenter, the hair seems a bit off in it's flow (mostly in the braid thing) but otherwise this looks great. And I like how you put the wood grain in the pole thar *points*
