Little Red Riding Hood - The Superhero

Little Red Riding Hood - The Superhero

So what happened after the Woodsman saved Red from the BBW? Well, she became an ass-kicking defender of the Wilderness, wielding the Woodsman's ax. And of course every superhero needs a sidekick. The dead Wolf's spirit is her reluctant familiar, making up for his past bad deeds.

For Illustration Friday's theme - wilderness.

Nice pose, and I love the full modelling on her nose and mouth - lots of individuality.

I have seen plenty of variations on Little Red Riding Hood and yours is one of the best!

I really like this one! Now I want to do my take on this concept.

I liked seeing your step by step of the armadillo painting too.

Thanks for sharing.
