BabaYaga aka BabaCloanta

A character design done for a contest and also for fun.
In Slavic folklore, a witch-like character who flies around on a giant mortar, kidnaps (and presumably eats) small children, and lives in a house on chicken feet (wiki). There's a Romanian version called Baba Cloanta named after her nose like a scavenger beak. Spooohhhoooooky...


  1. Baba Yaga, I heard of this witch on my first visit to Russia in 1993. Nice picture!
