Red Riding Hood by devilkate Red Riding Hood by devilkate
It's an entry for the Painters contest "My favorite tale" [link]

I always liked Brothers Grimm's tales. When I was a child, I loved to read them because of their mysterious character and dark atmosphere. And Little Red Riding Hood was one of my favs! :)
Today I also like Red Riding Hood, because one of my favourite film (Neil Jordan's "The company of wolves") and computer game ("The Path") are based on this tale.

I painted Red Riding Hood as an older girl, because I don't like to imagine her as a child ;) It's a scene, when she was going to her grandmother's house and suddenly she saw the wolf in the forest.

Done in acrylics on acrylic paper, A4 size.

This is so colourful! i love it. The red is so vivid. But my favourite part is the background. Specially in the limit of the forest, with those yellow tones.

Your coloring is beautiful, especially in the wolf's fur!

Czerwony kapturek, to czerwony kapturek - ale wilk! Za niego należy Ci się nagroda:)

I love all the little details you added (like those adorable red mushrooms!). The wolf is really beautiful. I have to say my favorite part is where the trees recede into the background. The colors are lovely, and it adds so much depth the piece.

A nice peaceful wolf...doesn't look like he wants to gobble her. The wolf disguised himself as grandma to try to keep her from gobbling him.

Such a beatiful image, the colours are once again my favorites. :3

I liked the Grimm's tales best too, though this one tale has never been the favorite - may be because it's so popular and has very much other works based on it.

Anyway this work is interesting also because of its little creepyness: the forest is quite huge in the back and the sun seems to be setting: it will be dark soon... *shiver* urgh, I'd hate to be in there. 8''D
