    i've never tried to really draw a house/structure before,but i would like to try this out.
    i read that this chicken leg house might be based on some houses built to store grain that have these big tree trunks for support and the roots are what resemble chicken legs.
    Anyway,is it cool if i base my image off one of these? i am not outright copying it, but using it for an idea of how to put this house together as im not really that developed in imagining/executing a believable structure just yet.
    here is a link to what i am using : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fileami_Storehouse.jpg

    will post what i have so far after work tonite if this is OK to for me to be doing. Thanks!

    Here are my two primary sources of inspiration for the hut. The dinosaur skeleton is from here: link. I'm unsure about whether I want the legs to move via magic, some sort of lever/pulley system, or a combination of the two.
    Still unsure about the mortar and pestle.
    I'll have at least a sketch of these up these evening. I'm liking your stuff, Yoitisi!

    Riotorange: Yep the topic is rather free for interpretation. If you want to do a more down-to-earth version of Baba Yaga's hut that's okay

    Moai: Could've expected you to come up with some anatomical reference for the creature part of the hut Curious what you're going to make of it.

    Nice start peoples. I've been busy with other things lately, but I had an urgent itch to paint, so i'm gonna try and finish this one up by Sunday. I still have some work to do on the porch, not trying to overpower the design with too much background. Can't wait to see everyone's finals.

    I wasn't going to do much with the ID part of this, but then I changed my mind and did a sketch of the mortar and pestle. Here it is. I think I'll incorporate this design into the finished piece, but I'm still going to emphasize the character I think.... or not... we'll see...

    I am doodling all at once, but everything is just so new for me...
    Here's my first exloration. I think it should be something more creepy, not so dreamy or cute (as this my post) - maybe rather old, heavy, rusty ...
    Good posts all of you >

    Yeah, Yoitsi, I've been thinking about that too.

    Have been thinking about how to make it clear that it's a huge skull... So I've added the broom and a real-sized skull... But it doesn't seem right yet, though. I also considered adding chicken skulls.
    What else can I do, to make it more exiting...?

    The rendering isn't finished either, obviously...

    Already getting tired of it... But we'll see... ^^'

    if you added a BG for a frame of reference you can make your scale read better.

    since I am not doing this (due to large numbers of pink bridesmaid dresses , but thats another story.) I jst wanted to pass along an idea I had

    you know it says the hut has chicken legs.... but it doesn't say how many. we asume that it has 2 like a chicken... but why should it? has any one considered a centipede like mass of chicken legs?

    so here's my lil cartoon so far, decided i liked the idea of actual chicken looking legs. gonna make it like the house might be a lil bit of a..GIR/Pinky/Beeker..sidekick type character, and made it scampering through the forest during its Babayaga-less freetime. hope i posted right, its only the second time i've ever tried to here. lol

    haha, dwinbotp, after seeing your post in the chow thread i was going to demand that you post here, since I really liked the mortar design. you can use the same image for both, you know, since the design is so clear in your chow image. :]

    hehe, yup daestwen it's gonna be posted here now, but I'm aiming to try the house out and it's good practice as well, if I don't finish my concept, then I'll succumb and submit the mortar and pestle instead. hope I can finish this though, I suck at enviros or architectural designs in general. As an incentive to do this house justice, I've included Baba inside the damn thing lol
