Baba Yaga by AppleSin Baba Yaga by AppleSin
Baba Yaga at the first time was a good character, something like guardian spirit (or wizard) who cares about children and family\home well-being =) Later parents started to scare bad boys and girls with interpreted 'evil witch'

i tried to make her not so evil... guess it works

you made her unbelievable! She is not a witch, she is the witch, far beyond good and evil, goddess of everything, like female counterpart of the God, but more powerful.

She is a Primordial Goddess form! The one whose fertility and wisdom created all life - Uni-verse. There is an amazing book that would be worth of your time and attention "The Crone" by Barbara G. Walker. I admire your art. Thank you for sharing your world of imagination and creativity.

I like her, she's like a vigilante, punishing and eating unclean and protect the pure ... Your painting was very cool, very well spent the good spirit that she may have!

Beautiful work (no, really, I like the drawing and colors) and it´s great that old woman is not always evil in a fairytale.

Ох, какая бабушка. Такая замечательная!
А какие грибочки очаровательные у нее в сумке растут! И цветочки на спине! Это очень трогательной образ Яги. Это как раз такая Баба Яга которая, хоть и живет в лесу у болота, но помогает горою, а не пытается съесть его=)

Потрясно=)

I'm really getting into fair tale art right now and for whatever reason under the sun I'm starting to love Baba Yaga. That woman don't take any sort of flack you know. Thanks for primping up such a cool old crone. You know what I really like, I mean outside the whole thing naturally, I really like the plants and things coming out of her bag. It's just that detail that seems to center the whole thing. Whatever the old lady was she was growing green.

Baba Yaga always makes me think of Modest Mussorgsky, who without, I wouldn't be as familiar with this enigmatic hag. I absolutely love her. This is fantastic work... I'm not an artist so I can't critique, but allow me to tell you think things I like about this: her staff is a great mix between a walking stick and a magical staff, the humpback is a nice touch, and the sling full of herbs ties in to her moving house in the woods. I love it. LOVE IT!

посох с черепом, у которого испепеляющий взгляд с детства не дает покоя. Правда, там девочка в основном с черепом этим бегала.

отличная яга!
не иначе как в печку ехидно приглашает )

Но вот третью фалангу на кисти, что держит посох, зря не выделили, очень анимешная ручка получается с такими пальчиками. то есть так взять посох можно конечно, но у яги хочется видеть более крючковатые пальцы )

THis is a great picture. I can easily see the good witch who doesn't quite look the part and I can see the evil witch that would steal children. Wonderful earthy colors and you captured her complex character.

I have books on mythology and learned the original stories behind Baba Yaga. She doesn't seem scary-looking at all to me, but I've always been fond of misshapen old ladies after working at a home for the elderly for 4 years.
