Looking at this, you see an old woman, motherly almost as most witches can be. Especially to non-human beings. But in this picture it is a mother scolding her child. For whatever reason you can see the tension in her back, her hands and the ready to discipline in her magic. The dragon doesn't look threatened but apologetic. Regret? Not so much. He values his 'mother's' emotions and is clearly troubled by the problem he's caused her and so sits there, listening to her ranting. He's still young, his scales are still fresh and she's old (From the back) withered even so in this case he is listening to the 'elder.'

This is a beautiful piece of work and I'm glad to have seen it. Also this is my first critique so forgive me for being so spaced out in my words. But this is a very clear, strong message. No matter your form, mother is afraid of nothing except for your safety.
What do you think?

"Go to my grandmother who lives in the forest in a hut on hen's feet. You will do everything she wants you to, and she will give you sweet things to eat and you will be happy".

It's amazing how everything becomes so lovely in the presence of the dear grandmother...

That's a wise dragon, knowing to sit, pay attention, and don't cop any attitude.

Marvelous sense of morning in the lighting here. The dragon is still clearly terrifying, for all that it's reining it in here.

LOL la casa gallina splendida!!! :D Il drago quasi adorabile, sembra che stia ascoltando il mago come farebbe un cagnolino col suo padrone. Fantastico, complimenti come sempre!

Considering she subdued a massive chunk of Linnorm Kingdom territory in less than a month and has not only maintained her grip despite her absence but subsequently crushed any and all who refused to listen to her, her daughters included? I would say Baba Yaga is one of those people even dragons try not to piss off.

Well, I didn't know any of that, so...
The only reason I knew it was Baba Yaga is because of her walking house, and the only reason I know about that is because I happened to see an episode of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. in which Baba Yaga and her walking house were the villains of the week.
