The Witch by ines-ka The Witch by ines-ka
This witch lived in the woods. In a hut on chicken legs. With faithful raven, cat and toad. This is an illustration of stories about love of an angel and witch.
3D version of the picture here: [link]
Thanks Mark Ramsey [link]

Cool. The muted color scheme and lack of broomsticks or cauldrons make this witch-centric piece different from most others.

This is absolutely perfect. I cannot begin explaining my amazement at this picture. Colours,shapes,expressions, all of it is beautiful. I looked at picture because it was so pretty and then I noticed hut and story. My heart almost exploded. I take it is younger Baba Yaga? Given that in myths she aged every time she answered question for one year, she must have been on long interview to go from this to this-upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia….
Do you have link to story?

Thank you!Baba Yaga concept is distorted. Initially,she was another maiden. Here you can read about it, but in Russian rodonews.ru/news_1288703997.ht…
Yes, there was a poem which was drawn illustration. But I lost it

You're welcome.

I don't get it- do you mean Baba Yaga in this image, or in general?

pity.

In this illustration, a witch. Not Baba Yaga. But the image is similar

Baba Yaga is a wonderful Russian character. I love this piece of art indefinitely.

Tell me, is this your interpretation of Baba Yaga, one of her daughters or the "Maiden" ?

ines-ka Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2015
This is not my interpretation. This picture was painted as an illustration to the poem about the angel and witch :)

Love of an Angel and a Witch?

Is this an actual book, or was this your story behind the picture?
I'd be interested in reading a book like that.

it sounds loosely based off the Russian folktale of Baba-yaga and Vasilisa the Beautiful

It was a planned book. But the writer who ordered me to illustrate not want to pay for my work. We stopped communicating, so I do not know anything about the fate of the work.
