Grimm's Fairytales #1 - Little Red Riding Hood by KristinaGehrmann Grimm's Fairytales #1 - Little Red Riding Hood by KristinaGehrmann
I'm currently working on a big project called "Die Märchenbande" ("The Fairytale Gang") that interprets Grimm's Fairy Tales in a modernized fantasy-like style. My client is making a series of pop music CDs and books that use these illustrations.

You probably know Little Red Riding Hood, and all the others already :)

A LOT more fairy tale illustrations are going to follow in the future.

Now back to work!

Medium: Photoshop and Wacom tablet, as always.
Reference for the pose from: `lockstock

This is lovely!
the colours are fantastic, and very children's book looking.
The depth, shading and contrasts are very well done.
Her facial expression is great, and we can tell by the composition and ofcourse the feeling and expression that there is something following her (the wolf) and that something terrible may happen !?

THe details on the clothing is probably my standout feature as well as her hair, and the basket. These look extremely worked to the fullest. I also like the background, the grass is very nice and appears soft and moist to touch.

WELL DONE OVERALL ♥

This is beautiful. I'm actually amazed how desaturated you made the background after looking more closely at it -- it's such a large difference, but I just didn't notice at first because it was part of what made the whole picture fit together and make the composition work.

I just have one small crit, namely the feet don't have overlap with grass like on the wolf's feet so it sorta looks like she's floating or they're not pressed into the grass.

This is a beautiful painting of the red-riding hood tale. I love the small details, such as her clothing & the natural folds & shadows, the lace on her socks & the red maryjane type shoes.

And the painting as a whole has the same details intermixed with background blending so your 'main characters' are a definite focal point.

I'm not a visual artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I continue to be envious of those like you, who can practically tell the story without any real words.

Thank You for sharing & I can't wait to see what's next,
