Baba Yaga


Author Comments

Spent some time on this one polishing it and getting it how I wanted. Though not sure if I can call it done, I'm happy with how it turned out :)
*Based off a classic Russian folk tale about a witch who lives in a house standing on massive chicken feet.

As a Russian, I approve of this. The art is fantastic, and true to the story. In many versions of the story, her house is described to be surrounded by a fence of skulls. Even though there is no fence, I still rate this 5 stars just because the art is stunning, and it looks like you put a lot of time into this.

I actually had a version with the fence, but took it out since I couldn't get it to look right. From one Russian to another. Спасибо

I'm kinda freaked out by a house with legs but still amazing,

Pretty neat. :D

Wait a gosh darn diddly second... this looks nothing like John Wick! I call shenanigans.

Kidding aside, I'm incredibly familiar with russian folklore and myth thanks to Mika Mignola's Hellboy & B.P.R.D. works. Although I always thought Baba Yaga's chicken leg house only had like, one leg?

Anyway this is still a pretty great albeit creepy piece.

id sorta like to meet her with a guide who speaks old russian one day but maby not since i heard she eats men women baby flesh and can eat from you for days not painfull at all since she uses euphoric stuff to keep you from freeing yourself from the tentacles watch it up at scp wiki also this is great art
