Baba Yaga is, 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.

Thanks a lot. Kind of a different technique for me. (Not radically different, but it's fun to experiment.)

Thanks a lot. I'm glad you like it. Obviously my version of Baba Yaga doesn't eat the bones... or is just a very sloppy eater... or it just likes to look creepy with bones piled about. :D
