Red Riding Hood by jerry8448 Red Riding Hood by jerry8448
Okay, I know this is not the most original idea and it's not all too christmasy, but I had fun painting it. It started out with just another forest yesterday, then went from yellow/green to blue and became darker and darker alltogether. I eventually decided to add characters and little red riding hood was the best I could come up with.

I hope you all have happy holidays. Enjoy!

~Jerry :)

I really love this piece, especially since it's from my favourite fairytale. Though, I have to say, it would have looked more consistent if the wolf looked a little less edgy/big/bad. The way I see it Red isn't afraid, it's more like she's curious and/or waiting for the wolf, so the picture of him doesn't quite match her "anticipation". It's nevertheless well done and I like the overall mood of it!

hey nice pic! Could you tell me how you did it? A friend of mine asked me to draw a picture for her but I have no idear how to draw a forest like that. Is it possible with gimp because thats my programm! Do you work with lineart or with free hand? I could use your tips really good ;)

It's definitely possible with gimp, though I use Photoshop Elements. I usually start with a sketch (pencil on paper), but didn't do that here. Instead I just started with a few background colors, then painted the trees and at the very end the wolf and the girl. ;) I have a few WIP-pictures in my scraps section that might interest you.

Sets the dark mood and the story look is more to the original concept than the more faerie tale version. That is also some big wolf as compared to the girl walking by herself, and I like the day to night shift this background turned into all looks quite nice. :)

I really like your woods! :)
They always have such a nice light and colourplay. And you never seem to get tired of paining lots of leaves and branches. xD

The only thing that would I have loved more, is, if Red Riding Hood was walking, the candle in her hand. I don't quite understand why she is standing still. She seems to wait for something or someone.

Thanks for interpreting my favourite fairy tale from my childhood. *^-^*

Thanks. This was a fairly quick painting and I'm not good with characters, so I guess i was just too lazy to paint her walking ^^ And yes, I love painting forests :D
