I bought a little travel watercolor set last week and made a color version of my Elderly Forest Guardian from last week.
I was always intrigued by the imagery of Baba Yaga’s hut. I started playing with it a bit one day in my sketchbook. I kept adding layers of tracing paper to the sketch and refining the image.
Finally, I took the top layer and put it on a light box. I inked it on a sheet of bristol board.
The image still seemed lacking, so I brought it into Photoshop and added layers of creepy tree branches to act as a frame of sorts.
