Vasilisa and Baba Yaga WIP by MiloNeuman Vasilisa and Baba Yaga WIP by MiloNeuman
Just a little something I'm working on. A nicer, non cell-phone taken picture of the completed version will be up sometime later this week.

Just for the sake of perspective, those pieces of paper are 8 feet tall.

EDIT:

Updated this with some more in-progress shots. The top panel is the result of one 5 hour session of drawing. The second two are pictures of my lovely model, :iconcheeko-001: goofing around. The fourth is a shot of both drawings laid out on the ground after my second 5 hour session. The fifth is me standing next to the completed work on critique day, just to give you guys some perspective on the crazy scale of these drawings. And the last is the final image.

Holy crud, I've never actually seen pictures of either of you before. XD People on the internet never look like how I imagine in my head, but this is probably more due to the fact that is people looked like I imagine in my head, they'd all look like cartoons.

Also, those things are freakin' HUGE holy cow that must have taken forever. Great job!

I think that's the wrong perspective. There's nothing stopping you from doing something big and elaborate if you want. This project didn't need to be as large scale as it was, I decided to do that because I thought it would be fun. It was a fairly simple assignment, actually. We were just to cast shadows on a piece of paper and then draw them. A lot of people decided to work small and abstract, I decided to work big and do a fairy tale illustration.

My point is, you have plenty of great ideas. All you need to do is put the time and effort into them to make them really awesome.

and while all of that is a good point. mine is that I've never been given an odd assignment where I'll be inspired to try something out of scale like that just for the sake of creativity and challenge(and it doesn't help you can't get paper that big here in the first place)

being smart and creative is not the problem. the problem is the lack of materials and support. (though of course there is plenty of that from direct family. just not in the community.... like, at all!)

Holy crap, that Baba Yaga. Is that in charcoal?

Also, before I ask my second question, is that you in the fifth image?

Hah, honestly, I rarely wear it anymore, unless I wake up late and don't have time to wash and comb my hair before class.

Isn't drawing on huge paper super fun?? Lovely work! Is it done with just charcoal, or charcoal and India ink?

It is indeed. As for the medium, this was exclusively charcoal.

Awesome! Vine charcoal or charcoal pencil? Sorry, I'm just curious because I sometimes have difficulty building up a really satisfying darkness with my charcoal, which you've achieved beautifully.

It's neither, I actually just used compressed charcoal sticks. As for the level of darkness... just be ready to put your shoulder into it.

Ahh, compressed charcoal! My professors always frowned on us using it :( I don't know why, it's a marvelous form of charcoal. I haven't used it in so long!
