We decided to share a closer look at our not so Little Red Riding Hood and her young wolfy friend. We truly wanted to give a clean slate to this wolf and emphasize it being a cub, thus super cute puppy eyes were deployed.
Here are the lines for our illustration of a not so young Red Riding Hood and a not so grown wolf. With a time scramble, we propose the freedom of finding new paths and different consequences to different decisions.
Will the wolf be good? Will Red Riding Hood be wise? We find Time scrambles really interesting!
Folklore stories have been told to us at a young age and listening to them again decades after, the characters remain in that Time standstill, forever remaining as they always were, since the first time the story was told and as it registered on our memory. But, what if… Time could be scrambled and played with? Well, that’s exactly what we bring you today! A not so small Red Riding Hood holding a cub Wolf.
The question remains: Nurture or Nature? Is he already a bad Wolf in the making? A bright mind eager to learn and empathize? We leave that to you and your own imagination.
Keeping up with sharing the inking of what lies behind the illustrations, we bring you a detail of the edited outlines for “Teaming with Beasts”.
This one didn’t have the usual inking stage since the pencil and ink lines sort of merged together in one. The pencil stage was cleaned up after the sketch, to work already as inking, resulting in rougher but also looser lines.
We’re pretty happy to share with you the lines for the illustration we did of Ladyhawke. In case you missed the final version, you can check it ►here◄.
Every now and then, we feel it’s also interesting to give a peek at the linework since it’s usually covered or merely hinted on the colouring stage.
