Baba Jaga by iphigen Baba Jaga by iphigen
It's finally finished... I almost screwed it up because I just couldn't stop dotting. At first I wanted to also make the trees in the background darker but then my teacher told me not to do it. It would have been the same as with my last etching, no depth. It was so hard for me to leave the areas the way theys were. I guess that's some kind of anankasm. I KNOW that I have to stop detailing but I cannot.
Oh well, I was lucky the etching wasn't ruined :P

I never sassociated baba jagas home with cuteness but it works, even with those sculls around its ... belt. well, maybe that's the whole trick of it. I mean - what kid would voluntarily run into a hut that looks dark and foreboding (as it does in so many fairy tale books)?
