Red Riding Hood by akireru Red Riding Hood by akireru
uhhhhh... hi guys!
It's been like months since I've submitted anything here, whoops!


Sooo here's something I stayed up until 5am last night drawing.
It's supposed to be inspired by Aubrey Beardsley but I didn't get the whiplash curves quite right hmmmmm

I also drew it a lot smaller than I intended so now it's not good for anything beyond bookmarks /sobsob

you can see the black and white version at [link] (this is where I'm most active in general)

Oh wow, I love the concept and the composition. I think you've improved so much, and it makes me want to try harder with my art as well :D

Aw thank you!

To be honest I feel like I've really stagnated with my illustrations since I've been focusing on design so much for school. So to hear you say that really means a lot to me :)

You'd need something on the other side, though.

ME TOO!
I think the sexual aspects of the story are fascinating and have sooooooo much potential for bad ass illustrations.

I am a sucker for pretty much anything that replaces "innocent little girl" Red with "bad ass woman" Red, haha.

Totally agreed! Strong female characters are so much love!
And yeah, Little Red Riding Hood is basically festering with the potential for hardcore critical analysis, as well as hardcore badass artistic interpretation, two things I love more than life itself!

Hahaha exactly!

Actually I think a lot of fables can be re-imagined that way, but for some reason Red Riding Hood is still my favorite :P ("some reason" being the wolf, lol)

Word!

The wolf makes all the difference, you're totally right! Instant recipe for Diana-interest = add wolf/wolves, and done.
