Little Red Riding Hood

I had to come up with a monochrome illustration in a vertical format for the story Little Red Riding Hood. I really wanted to do a piece that had a different take on the story. After thumbnailing a few ideas, I sketched out this rainy alleyway in pen with Lil' Red being the only color in the piece. I painted the final image digitally.

Another thumbnail idea I came up with was making Little Red a Russian sniper in Stalingrad during WWII. I could see the story in my head with the wolf being a German counter-sniper or spy and grandmas house is a key strategic point. Little Red is red because she's communist. I think the idea fell a little too far from the tree to be used in class, but I painted my thumbnail up anyways for fun.
