Baba Yaga doodles

Been shooting around ideas for a Baba Yaga painting. I knew nothing about her or her story aside from being a witch, Russian and living in the forest in a hut on chicken legs. So before doing any research I started going off that to see what happened, then slowly adding more educated images from looking up her folklore.

I figure posting this will get me to actually follow through with the painting in a somewhat timely fashion.

Also, after reading Sam Bosma's blog and seeing how much prelim exploration he does... I feel so damn lazy for doing just these so far.

Cool, man. You are definitely inspiring me to get crackin' on all the science fiction/folklore stuff I keep thinking to add to the portfolio. Some sweet sketches here!
