These Old Wrinkles

Some more Baba Yaga designs I managed to spruce up. This little old lady is a forest dwelling hag who lives in a hut built on chicken legs and rides around in a pimped out pestle and mortar. Cute, no?

Most of my current time is taken up with dissertation writing and turkey, so it took me a while to find the will to colour these. But here they are anyway =)! They also taught me how much I need to get to grips with colouring, because in all honesty, the line work spoke to me a lot more. Maybe I need to just strip it back, because these look a little burnt to me? Funnily, I actually like the bottom, black and white Baba Yagas the most. They're pretty simple and too the point. 

These characters are from the old folk tale, Vasila the beautiful. It's a classic fairy tale (pretty Cinderlla-ish actually), but it's been fun trying to come up with characters.
Here are some rough lines to boot,

As a side note, I have a tumblr and twitter if you're interested in my ramblings (links are under my 'shameless self promo' section on the right)
