Path of Crumbs. by Endling Path of Crumbs. by Endling
A humble offering to all the folks e-mailing me about the Everafter updates over at [link]..

It's slow going, I know, but slow and steady wins the race. :) (Besides which, Endling needs to earn his keep. Food and a warm bed are quite crucial to good art-makings..)

Tried a lot of new things, the foundation of which came from *shirotsuki's tutorial on coloring. Go easy on me, I'm not as comfortable with atmospheric color.. this is the first in the line of my hopeful progress into better scenery!

Here we have Hansel and Goldilocks (didn't recognize her..? Well that's how she's going to look in the comic. :D So get used to it!) traveling through the woods, based on a sequence about.. halfway through the story. They've lost their way since their escape and got caught up amongst a webbing of trees.. so Hansel, being the gentlemanly little deranged soldier he is, took the initiative and burned a path straight through. Goldilocks is apprehensive, but appreciates the gesture, though she does wonder what the odd smell coming from the smoldering woods could be. Surely not hundreds of small, formerly cute woodland creatures, no.

I can't even explain how ADDICTED I am to your work. The art is AMAZING! but that is nothing compared to the sheer BRILLIANCE of your ideas!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!

I'm guessing that out of all the characters, Goldilocks is the most sane?
Ravenr20 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
I thought that was Red?

This = brilliant!
Really, it's so awesome even though it's kind of not very new by now.
The best part? Hansel's facial expression. Just... priceless <3
But I have a question: what's with Goldilock's shoes? It looks like there're holes in them...?
Mogasaki Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2009  Student Digital Artist
that's really cool - shirotsuki's one of my favorite artists as well, and i recognize that style you used from the tutorial - so it's cool to see the styles of two great artists together like that. :)
RiotGirlLove Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009
That girl kinda looks more like Rapunzel to me but with shorter hair.
SweetSolonine Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2009
A gentleman indeed! ^^ Sounds like he'd be good to have around in a sticky spot. ( Unless your a cute woodland animal, that is. )

The picture is absolutely gorgeous. The flames, the lighting, everything. I envy your talent so.
Don't ask me why, but Hansel reminds me of a psycho little mouse. It's adorable. x3
kirbycide Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2009
Iwish i could have seen Hansel and Gretel in the story. And Muffy too...
immblueversion Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2009
Patience. The Endzone tournament finale is nearing completion.
kendermouse Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2009 I'm wondering what's happened to Gretl...

Is that a bear I spy in the trees or is my insanity getting to me again?
I love the designs of the characters you've designed for this series! and the colouring is amazing *so jealous
dinshino Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2008
This is going to be one helluva story!
Tally-cat Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Amazing! You captured the emotions of the characters so well, and I love how the trees burning look like wolves faces.
arnic Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
This is gorgeous. :heart: But the real reason I'm commenting is because of this:

"Food and a warm bed are quite crucial to good art-makings.."

I found that comment to be quite amusing, since it seems to contradict the whole starving artist bit. XD

Keep up the good work. :]

When will you dring Hansel into the comic? and,when usually do you update EA? I'm also waiting on Grim Tales, TIN, Titan, Sugar, Zim, and KOF...even though that comic was canceled 6 years ago.XD
ZeroConfidence Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2007  Hobbyist Artist
that a big pack the little guy is carrying. So what is contents of the canisters, gasoline, pro pain, or kerosene? The great art just like the rest.
drinjix22 Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2007

I love it, the shading and the highlights are great!

goldilocks looks like a semi-grown up precious moment figurine....

just a thought ^;^
Vanhelsing1117 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2007
the path of crumbs... it's wierd how little phrases like that can be turned into darker meanings. words themselves dont really mean anything, its all about what we make them mean...

(ashes, ashes, we all fall down...)
DeadXCross Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
i really like your rendition of Goldilocks. i find her very. . . attractive~
superusername2 Featured By Owner May 28, 2007
Incredible work. You've managed to create a story setting so dark and sinister that you can almost pity characters like Hansel and Red (similarities in their situation are just my aassumptions) despite their...apparent tendencies.
catchan2006 Featured By Owner May 24, 2007
Goldilocks looks beautiful! And the background looks fantasitic!
