Baba Yaga - revised

After the responses to the last posted sketch of her, I did some revising of Baba Yaga and the composition -

I'm hoping this reads better? Mostly the same elements - but moved around a bit, and a more feminized version of her witchy self...

(My mother very sweetly agreed to pose for me when I was there last week. Isn't she great!!)

So I just can't guess how you thought your lovely mom could do baba yaga, but I'm glad you thought of it, she has a surprisingly mobile face. I still think she's cute even in that pose :).

I think the feminization has made a significant difference - and really brought the character to life.

She feels kind of like someone we all met once, someone who scared us when we were little.

Good work!
