Baba Yaga

So anyways, this is Baba Yaga. Baba Yaga is basically a Russian witch who possesses teeth of brass, and  a mortar and pestle which she uses to ride through the sky. She lives in a house that walks around on chicken feet, and her garden fence is made out of human bones, proving that Russia has the most kick-ass witches. Ever.

So this started out as as a pencil sketch in the corner of my notebook, when I was much much younger. I scanned it in, then dropped in various layers of dirt and played with the colour saturation and  balances to get it to its current state. The blood stains are the result of basically scanning a page in at high contrast, and then using the magic wand set to high sensitivity to crop patches out.

For sale! Giclee prints on, you guessed it, Hahnemuller paper.
