Red Riding Hood by KristenPlescow Red Riding Hood by KristenPlescow
Totally not sure if that's the right category, but I've had almost no sleep and about as much coffee.
:iconimhappyplz:




Started drawing the wolf's head at my sister's basketball game last week, but randomly decided to add MOAR yesterday night and it evolved into a fairytale-themed thing.


Why the random birds? In a really neat story revision (Newgrounds [link]), a forest bird warns Red that she's eating her mom's flesh.
:iconblushingplz:
How pleasant. :heart:




Feel free to critique, although I can't change a darn thing. 8Db (Plus, I've been staring at it long enough to know the various things I did wrong while inking it, haha).






Tools Used: 8.5"x5.5" sketchbook page, ballpoint pen + Photoshop (shading/cheap color)
Time Taken: 3 hours? D:
References: None (the cottage is TERRIBLE for that reason, lol)
Characters: Public domain (this illustration is NOT, though ;))

Sister Illustrations: [link] [link]


I apologize for the watermark (on a ballpoint sketch, no less), but yah. Fairy tales are popular subjects, and this is a portfolio piece. I don't need any trouble with thievery. 8Db As always....

I liked the way as the wolf launches a glance pursuing, almost greedy, on the calm red.
If this image was used as layer of a book would be really great.
A perfect vision of the infantile story.

Anybody watch Jin-roh? That was the first time I ever heard of that particular version of the story.

That's what prompted me to look for older, less edited versions of fairie tales. I actually prefer them to the "happily ever after" stuff.

I've never watched Jin-roh, actually. :0

But yah... I agree. XD The original fairy tales tend to have a lot more depth to them (although Disney does rewrite them pretty well).
