"Grandmother, why is that woman naked?"
"Hmmm, I don't know, my child. It's fantasy kitsch. I'm afraid we cannot apply logic here."





01-17-2011: Major EDIT! Repainted a lot of the original. Now also with some textures from cgtextures.com

Fur brushes by *nathie [link] (I'm not sure if after the edit any of thse brushes are still visible though.)

By the way, no references have been used except for a few pictures of gnarling wolves, none of which was reproduced directly:)


Your comments and critique are welcome. If you find something that can be improved on, please tell me! Your help is appreciated.

This is amazing, a beautiful piece. Her calm expression is nice, particularly with the facial markings, the tattoos on her body made me think she was wearing clothing, until I looked over the whole thing (she is not wearing anything but the hood, is she?). The lighting from the wolf's eyes and fires is further adding to piece, not to mention the glass bottle in her hand, it is a interesting addition. Well done, magnificent work. Keep it up.

Thank you so much for your detailed comment! Yes, she doesn't wear anything except the hood:)

Coolest. Red riding hood picture. EVER. The lighting is absolutely incredible and there's so much attention to detail, and the fire in particular has to be the most realistic fire I have seen painted. Fantastic job!

Thank you! I dodged the fire with some real photo flames I found on www.cgtextures.com to give them some texture - and I also had a look at those photos to find ou how real flames look when I painted the single flames on the branches. Before, when I painted it just from imagination I did it wrong and included too much red in the flame. Now I will always remember how to paint fire properly:)

woah!!!! :jawdrop:
It would take me a week just to TRY and draw the upper left corner! lol

Hahahaha, thanks! Well, it took me a year of practice to do it properly now. And it's a nice feeling to see how my skills improved over this one year since I first uploaded it. Now it wasn't that hard actually, because I made myself a brush for the leaves.
