Baba Yaga, the Witch of the deep Russian woods as sent her eyeball on a mission. She's looking for our hero, Burliuk the Cossack. When her bat minion finds him, he's to follow, but not be discovered. Notice the multiple eyes on the bat... I'm always creeped out by Spider eyes, and having a huge number of eyes on a bat flies in the face of "blind as a bat"...
"flies in the face of..." funny.
The drawing is done digitally in SketchBook Pro by Autodesk, then ported into Photoshop for color and merger with an early morning photo as a background I took a few years back.
I'm pushing Burliuk's story forward, even without a concrete plan for publication. I'm very pleased with the images that have developed along the theme.
