YGO: Matryoshka Vasilisa Picture

The first monster of another Yu-Gi-Oh! archetype I've been working on. I'm actually proud of this one, and it's the kind of series of cards I'd love to see actually made for the game. The Matryoshka archetype are a bunch of WATER, Rock-type monsters who focus on Xyz support. There will be 3 effect monsters and 3 Xyz monsters, with possibly 1 Synchro along with a few spells. Each monster is based on a figure from Russian or Slavic mythology, with the one here being based on Vasilisa the Beautiful. Fun to draw. I'm trying to make them all look like they've got clay or ceramic skin, but that might not visible thanks to my scanner. Vasilisa is the weakest of the set, and thus the smallest of their metaphorical nesting doll stack. Thus, she's the only monster that has one whole body, while the next five will have visible slits around their midsections (the Xyz monsters might wind up looking less humanoid as actual jar-shaped monsters more akin to their namesake). Vasilisa is the only Tuner in the archetype.

Here's here effect for those curious, though I may change it later: "When this card is Normal Summoned: You can target 1 "Matryoshka" monster in your Deck; attach that target to a face-up Xyz monster on the field as Xyz material. When this card is destroyed by battle: You can pay 500 Life Points; attach it to an Xyz monster you control as Xyz material, instead of sending it to the Graveyard."

Hopefully I can draw these without succumbing to my usual collapse of motivation midway through. Otherwise, comment and enjoy!
