hi,
i dont like the picture of Akachi Onyele, so i decided to create a new character with the strane eons program.
i'm looking for a picture of a voodoo witch or something like that.

Don't know specifically, but you're probably better off searching for a Voodoo/Vodou priestess rather than "witch". Mambo is the Haitian Vodou term for a female priestess. However this character is meant to be a shaman, not Voodoo as far as I'm aware (I don't own Innsmouth so I can't be sure) so a Voodoo priestess might not fit with the personal stories etc.

thx for the quick reply and the info,
it doesn't really matter to me if the character will be a shaman or a voodoo priestess. i'm just lokking for a cool picture and i didn't find one yet (using google pictures).

She is definitely a shaman and not a voodoo practitioner. The characters associated with voodoo would be Marie Lambeau and to a lesser extent Jim Culver.

For Akachi, you could always use a picture of Storm from the X-Men. She would fit the model quite well.

it's just a matter of personal tase. the picture is not evocative enough.
i like this one better:

or maybe a native american witch doctor (still haven't found).

She oughta be dressed in western/American clothes, to blend in. Maybe have some shamanic jewelry. I think she'd have really intense eyes too.
