Hello and a lil info on my story...

Hi Everyone!

For those who do not know me, I be called Orysia.
Coming in here a bit late, so I'll be playing a little catch up (forgive me!).

I am planning to take a classic Russian faery tale and give it my own kind of twist. Hopefully you've heard of the witch called Baba Yaga. Classically she's an old hag (well...she is) that either lures children into her clutches for munching or tricks lost girls into becoming her servants. After doing a little more research on her, I found that she also has been known as a guide and a representation of death/life, etc.

ANYWHO, my version will feature a witch named "Yaga" (don't even think to call her Baba) who guides the lost souls of children in modern-day society. The 'trick' is that she is a little less than altruistic in her intentions and to not be trusted. She encounters a child who becomes a bit wise to her tricks and eventually gets the upper hand on her.
I also plan to incorporate some other elements of the classic tale, such as the three horsemen and the chicken-legged house, but this is my start for now.
I have a few character sketches that I am moderately pleased with, so I will scan and post those soon. Still working on the script, but my goal is to have some thumbnails up for it next week.
Thanx!
