Happy Halloween! For my fifteenth drawing for InkTober I made a drawing of Baba Yaga. In Russian folklore, Baba Yaga is a ferocious witch. She dwells deep in the forest in a hut standing on chicken legs surrounded by skulls.
Here is my sixth drawing for InkTober. I wandered off from the spooky Halloween territory for this drawing. This monster is my version of a Wendigo. A Wendigo is a cannibal monster or evil spirit from Algonquian folklore. The folklore comes from the forests of the Great Lakes Region of the United States and Canada.
I’m back for round two of InkTober. Every October there is a drawing challenge to make one ink drawing a day the entire month. An illustrator by the name of Jake Parker created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. I made it seventeen or eighteen drawings in last October. I am planning to post every other day this year. October is a busy month for me. Here is my first drawing, some imps and a pumpkin.
