In the depths of some God forsaken forest lay a petite child. Her bare skin stands out in stark contrast to the dead lifeless trees surrounding here.  In these woods the sun is rarely capable of piercing into the unending gloom. The child's gently parted lips are coated in a bright red blood.

                Coiled tight like a ball among some tall grass the girl lays there seemingly ignorant of the terrible cold. Thunder booms in the distance as a drop of water as if on cue falls onto her nose from the branches above. Plip... plip...plop.

                She springs into an upright position as if moving on instinct. Her still foggy mind struggles to keep up with the explosion of sensory information her body is feeding her. As her mind slowly catches on to her predicament a look of abject terror falls upon her. She looses a high pitch squeal and covers herself up with her arms looking back and forth in a panic.

                "Wh... where are my clothes??"

                A sudden gust of wind reveals her crimson riding hood dangling from a tree branch. Without even thinking she makes a mad dash for the shredded article of clothing. Quickly wrapping herself up in its folds as she clutches her shoulders sobbing uncontrollably, her entire body quivering like a wounded bird.

                "Why... why does this keep happening to me???"

                she suddenly notices her hands. They are painted  with wet blood. This revelation is hammered home when she realizes how profoundly the taste of blood is coating her mouth.

                "I... I was eating rabbits that's all, only rabbits. They we...They were r.. rabbits. Rabbits!!"

                As she repeats the phrase over and over to herself shards of broken memories flit about through her fractured mind. Images of horrified women and children bathed in red screaming. Their high pitched cries drown out the girls own words.

                A sudden tingling sensation comes over the girls fingers, she stares at them in confusion. Her pupils start to constrict into pin points. She watches horrified as her hands begin to broaden and elongate revealing wicked sets of claws. She doubles over and starts convulsing in pain.

                "Mother... what did... you do... to me???"

I liked this artwork you’ve done here. I’ve watched the Red Riding Hood film, and its association with werewolves. I often ask myself what Red would be like if she had been bitten by the werewolf instead of Peter. Now I think this helps my curiosity on such a subject. The usage of red in this is also rather good; reminiscent of such films like the Box or the Sixth Sense. Red was a useful feature in those films, and it just brings it alive. And the innocence played in her eyes just melts the fear away from it a.

I really like how you drew the blood here.
Paladin-Ciel's avatar
Thanks so much It took me quite a bit of planning to ensure it didn't look unnatural, well in a bad way. As anyone covered with that much blood will come off as unnatural. =p

Paladin-Ciel's avatar
Thanks so much! Lol yeah since this version is a werewolf I wanted to ensure that some of those features show through even when she's in her human form.

that was pretty scary and well done ^^

Thanks! I think Orphan and Prisoner probably have it the roughest story wise they are just trying to survive and don't have a clear path set before them.

Its part of why they become drawn to Standards strong path even though it is a quest for vengeance that will jeopardize all three of their lives even more.

will buy, do want. your making this into a full comic right? i've had soo much on my mind i completely forgot, or was it a story.
Paladin-Ciel's avatar
I'm hoping to have it be an independent comic supported via Patreon.

It'll will take quite a while to complete thus I'm working to knock out as much of the pre production work as I can now before my last semester finals start to pile on too thick. =p
