Hi all I am somewhat new to this site but regardless I will be pumping out the artwork. I must say there is a good deal of impressive artwork on this site but I feel challenged to do better instead of feeling jealous (well maybe just a little ) Anyways I have a huge interest in myth and folklore and have many books on the subject.
Here is my latest piece and I love feed back.
In Russian tales, Baba Yaga is portrayed as a hag who flies through the air in a mortar, using the pestle as a rudder and sweeping away the tracks behind her with a broom made out of silver birch. She lives in a log cabin that moves around on a pair of dancing chicken legs. The keyhole to her front door is a mouth filled with sharp teeth; the fence outside is made with human bones with skulls on top — often with one pole lacking its skull, so there is space for the hero or heroes. In another legend, the house does not reveal the door until it is told a magical phrase: Turn your back to the forest, your front to me.
