    Chow 147 :: Baba Yaga - IDW Crossover!

    Chow 147 :: Baba Yaga - IDW Crossover!

    ROUND #147 :: BABA YAGA - IDW CROSSOVER
    DESCRIPTION

    Baba Yaga, notoriously evil witch of legend.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baba_Yaga

    For recent renditions, I suggest 'Hellboy' and 'Fables'.

    Again, like Titania, free to interpret, though a sci-fi baba yaga might be a little out of place. :]

    IDW will be running a tandem event - here's the link, so be sure to check it out: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=149872

    very nice choice daestwen, check out "enchantment" by orson scott card, the whole book pretty much involves baba yaga, she was a right evil witch with some major power,

    Ooh, good idea. I don't think the Baba Yaga is completely evil, though. She seems to be at least fair in some stories. The version in the Hellboy universe is pretty cool, too.

    This will be my first time participating, I'm very excited.

    I'm here to admire art and learn how to be a better artist.

    daestwen: Another great TOPIC! I plan on utilizing all the time this round... I'm hoping to go with top notch quality on this one... I made a bunch of texture brushes for PS and hopefully I can pull off a more professional composition this time.

    P.S is there a way I can change my user name... I see my name and my pen name are confusing people... but I don't want to start a whole new account... or is that the only way?

    Cool. Always been fascinated with the hut on chicken legs. Highly unlikely that I'll get anything finished this week, but this was a fun way to warm up before work if nothing else.

    I like a traditional, child frightening witch ( nothing much scarier than evil old ladies if you ask me ) so I've tried to make my Baba Yaga as unsettling as possible. Hopefully hiding her body under layers of skirts and aprons so she looks like a bundle of dirty rags with some twisted limbs poking out will do the trick. I've given her chicken's feet too - that suggests her having a weird scuttling, hopping movement which I like.

    Can't decide on a face though.

    very cool idea for comp. Going for nothing original,old hag, more horror into this one. rough sketch, got metal stuff and dirty little thingies (holding up her sagged face) in lieu with the crossover.

    Me like this one 2 ... actually never heard of her, but she has some great "ingredients" in her story.... good luck to everyone!! This is going to be a "pretty" scary round I'm guessing...

    Matt Dixon Fast one out. Like.
    Pixeltuner Selfportrait..?? ;-) Scary!

    Enjoy.

    Hmm, this is rather different... Not too kean on this one either. (I'm not kean on a lot of things) might give it a try

    Dayamn, you people are fast!

    Matt Dixon - Definitely the first face (the one with hollow sockets and the dots of light shining through). Much scarier.

    What signature?

    First I wasn't gonna enter but then I got such a great idea for the concept...

    What if Baba was infact an alien exiled from her homeplanet, who found
    a new home in the deep russian forest where she lived for centurys
    killing and eating anything or anyone who got too close. The house with chicken feet would obviusly be the spacecraft
    and the flying mortar some kind of personal transportation device.



    I will still make her very witch-like and not too unhuman, and try to stay away from any classical sf looks.

    Quick sketch-

    Another small plug for IDW here, but I already see several different ideas not only for Baba Yaga herself but also her mortar and pestel popping up. Don't hesitate to post your WIP's in the IDW thread either

    Wiggers - Looking good. I really like the colour scheme you've chosen too.

    WunderDark - Nice concept.

    Slapped some colour on at lucnh time. Don't know whether to follow my initial thoughts and and pick her out of a very dark scene with a splash of light, or brighten the background to play up her distorted silhouette. I think the former would have more impact when finished even though the second looks a little better as a rough. Went with the first face, so glad to hear that's the favourite!
