Baba Yaga's Looking at You

This is a companion piece to girl and the chicken legged house (Baba Yaga & Vasilissa). Where as the other piece is a two-page spread this on was to be a book cover. Watercolor painting edited in photoshop. 

Prep work:
Took a while to get to the illustration I actually did. These are two sketches that almost were. But I like the one I colored better than these two. 

Pencil sketch

Color sketches. 

 Progress pics:
I started and failed already once with this illustration by messing up the background's wash so when I started a new version I frisket-ed the heck out of the painting. All that orange is frisket.  

It's kind of terrifying to continue painting when she's looking at you like this...

And the final again..
