Baba Yaga has always been really weird and creepy to me, but you did a great job capturing the feeling in this shirt, imo! Great lines and feet on that house. Very quickly understandable (if you've heard of Baba Yaga, at any rate)

Oh, the one thing I would change in the design is to add a wee bit of definition between the black pine trees in teh background, and the ivy & legs on the house.

Cool! And I'm only now familiar with Baba Yaga's hut being on chicken legs as I was playing some Castlevania Lords of Shadow last week and they referenced some of the lore. Man this derby is clearly telling me I have to brush up on my fairy tales.

Looooooove this design. Baba Yaga has always been one of my favorite fairy tale characters, and having her house on a shirt would be amazing.

Yes, sometimes Baba Yaga is known as "Boney Legs" because no matter how much she eats, she stays boney and skeleton-like. Sometimes Russian fairy tales depict her as a good witch, but I prefer those where she's scary. She lives in a hut which roams the forest on chicken legs, searching for naughty children to eat. When the hut perches, a fence of bones rises from the ground and encircles it. She also travels perched in a large mortar with her knees almost touching her chin, and pushes herself across the forest floor with a pestle... and she can fly in this manner, too!
