Hansel and Gretel

Illustration Friday time! This week’s word was Scattered, so I came up with Gretel scattering breadcrumbs in the forest to follow in case they get lost. This is the first of three of four images where I want to approach the fable with a new perspective, so more to come!

I love it--especially the birds! :)

There must have been something in that bread to attract such a variety of birds!

How long does it take you to complete a picture?

PS I'm in love with your style.

Maybe a day to do the final ink drawing and then a night to digitally color it. Less than 24 hours all together.

All of your art makes me want to cry in the best way. Everything fits together so beautifully, and the designs are the perfect balance of intricate and simple. :heart:

And I forgot to mention-that witch is the most menacing candy-wearer imaginable! Brr...

This is AMAZING. The colors--! Those birds are like something from a fever dream. What traditional media are you using, here? I'd love to try matching that vibrancy in some of my work...

The only traditional media is ink from pilot ball pens, pentel slicci pens, and micropens, and sometimes I'll shade the face or pieces with graphite. Then everything goes into photoshop and when it's finished I edit the levels and change the curves.

Thank you! I should add that I love the fullness of your compositions- no blank space, and yet they don't feel busy! Gives the eye and the mind a lot to study...

I just realized I submitted under traditional storybook instead of digital storybook x.x sorry about the confusion.

Wonderful atmosphere! Every fairy tale needs that kind of atmosphere, otherwise it doesn't work. :D
