Baba Yaga and her Chicken-Legged Hut

Captainsmog presents a wonderfully illustrated scene, telling the story of Baba Yaga and her chicken-legged hut. There are many versions of the fairy tale, and like any good story, the details are where the weirdness begins. Is there one Baba Yaga? Three? Why do all of these stories involve cannibalism?

I invite you to look long and hard at this wonderfully constructed witch’s hut and check out the wonderful details.

Fee, Fi, Fo, Fum

Brother Steven artfully captures the moment a home intruder breaks in and steals the owner’s valuables, before subsequently escaping and murdering the wronged homeowner. I never quite got the moral of that story.

I particularly like the expression on the giant’s face in the picture above, but be sure to check out the full shot for the fantastic details.

Seeing Red

This edgy version of Little Red Riding Hood, by Evan B., depicts her in the midst of an anti-wolf vendetta. This build is quite striking. I think this is a case where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The girl is nicely done, the landscaping is good, the wolf and the blood effect are well-thought out but when all the elements are put together something special emerges. I get a real sense of the character and her pain when I look at this build. Well done, Evan, well done.
