Inktober - Day 7 (I think)

I am now a lot behind and part of it is life which has gotten crazy but part of it was I got carried away with this last drawing and it took a while to finish it while keeping up with life. You know how it goes. The day 7 prompt was lost which led me to think of a Hansel and Gretel kind of story. I like the art nouveau work of Russian illustrator Ivan Bilibin. Much of his work was illustrations for Russian fairy tales. I've learned a lot about drawing from attempting to do work in his style. This picture was drawn in pencil but then inked over and details were added with felt tip pen and colored with colored pencils. I think I should try blending the pencil next time.
