SotW: Baba Yaga
today's witch is easily one of the most famous and most evil witches known in the world and one of the oldest legend too.
Baba Yaga, originally from Russian folklore, has been through a recent revival thanks to MIke MIgnola, who has used her in his Hellboy stories.
Maybe many of you are already familiar with her, but for those who aren't, Baba Yaga is known to be quite mean and to be a baby eater. She also lives in a house that has chicken feet and rides a mortar (even if she carries the classic broom as well).
Below, some detail of the illo.
More witches to follow. Make sure to be back tomorrow for a new witch and have some true pulp scares everyone :)
