Within the Woods
I recently finished my Motivarti apprenticeship with Leighton Hickman and this is one of the images that I worked on under his guidance. I learned a lot about his painting process and what makes a good image even better, so I'm really thankful to have had this opportunity!
This piece was inspired by the Russian folktales of Baba Yaga and her house in the woods that suspends itself on chicken legs. It provided a great springboard for some interesting imagery.
I'll be able to share the Steal Away Home sequel cover soon, so expect that in the coming weeks.
