Eerie Red

This is my entry to the Twisted Fairytales Contest from :iconoc-challenge:
The goal was to chose a classic fairy tale and twist it with an original character. I chose to twist my top favorite fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood. Instead of a little girl being stalked through the forest by a big bad wolf, the wolf is being stalked by ominous girls in red cloaks. My oc, Sharplight, walks uneasily on the path while the mysterious eyes of girls dig through her fur.

It's funny; I got a spark of inspiration while working on this. I got an amazing idea for an animated film I plan to work on later. Also, this is my first complete digital drawing that I've finished. It's not great and it has some flaws but overall, I'm satisfied with it.

That is an awesomely terrifying take on the original. I love the grayscale with the bright flashes of red.
