Yabba-Akka by laheie Yabba-Akka by laheie
I don't know if this the name of some god, goddess or creature in mythology or otherwise; I just thought the name felt right.

This character came into my head when I was watching a documentary on Youtube about the animator Richard Williams. She's a strange sort of goddess who looks evil but isn't really, she's just kind of threatening and bizarre. I guess you could say she's like a female mixture of the Forest Spirit from Princess Mononoke and Hades from Hercules... only more sinister? If that makes any sense at all. XD

Anyways, this is a character I kinda like and a drawing that came out fairly well. ^^

Yeah, I get that from her. She looks a little scary but her expression isn't evil - she kinda just looks like she's enjoying saying 'boo!' to people 'cos it's funny to! :giggle:

Nice style. Really like the colours.

Yabba is supposedly a mountain witch that eats people who trespasses. Though she may be frightening she is extremely maternal and loving towards her son.

(Sorry, not trying to show off just that I did my dissertation on that.)
