EDIT: Characters are my reinterpretations of the Big Bad Wolf and Red Riding Hood. Their ongoing story is written up at [link] as a serial novelization.
Both characters are the current incarnations of the Big Bad Wolf and Red Riding Hood, although admittedly they have no idea of that at all.

The story itself fits no specific genre. At times it seems slice of life relational pseudo-Victoriam drama and at other times it is unapologetic fantasy.

-------------------
More artwork is in the "Tales of the Big Bad Wolf" folder in my gallery and in [link]

This was initially a pencil and ink drawing that was scanned and then painted in Painter 11.

I just started to read your story; it led me here to your deviant account actually. I'm enjoying it tremendously :)

Very very nice artwork. :) Him holding the apple seems like one hell of a loaded meaning. :XD:

Yeah - although there are actual physical apples involved in their first meeting (in my serialized story), the reason for it is because of its appearance in variuos religious and mythological settings :).

the wood carvings is a wodnerful background idea. It would be nice to have more of a foreground. but considering what you used to make this. Great job ^^ Its always fun to see old fairytale characters re-dun in fun ways.

Yeah - I think I'd like some of that wood motif brought out front, but I was a bit random about this drawing to begin with and so it did not get planned that way :)

The background, with the Wolf carved into the wood, is amazing! And the wolf looks cool too...handsome but in a dark way like Mr. Rochester or Hamlet or one of the other dark, slightly insane, male characters from literature! I love how you set him and Red at opposing angles, with the opposite color schemes. Really highlights the differences between them!

thanks! I took a different approach to coloring the face and yes - definitely loving art nouveau. It just helps to have something different to a background. I get so bored of painting them xD

maybe you can use an earthy wood tone for the background, but make sure it doesn't blend with the wolf-carving. Like a dark wood-feel. a Slight dark gradient would give an ominous, and curious feel, like the original fairy tales are meant to be, not the sugar-coated kiddy ones
but hey, maybe U tried it already and it didn't work. I don't know
I look forward to this

i think the interest in drawing just sort of comes and goes...i was told not to stress out about it, and so haven't. thankfully the interest has come back, although it's still a struggle sometimes to sit down and draw when i have lots of other things like books or games to distract me :)

I just need a place of my own because at home there's too many distractions (one big one is a puppy who insists I play with him) but even if I did have my own place, I don't know how motivated I'd be. I too have a lot of books, games, and anime (even though the latter wasn't listed in your response).

The background steals the show... looks like a carved wood door, a bit art nouveau-ish. I'd like to see it in real life!

yeah, art nouveau meets graffiti style.... it's my favorite part because it actually touches on the thematic elements more than the foreground xD

Ooh, pretty! WIP is good so far! Maybe you can do something a little more neutral-colored to keep the vintage antiquated look while making the characters stand out against it? It doesn't all have to be brown - just muted stuff. Colors. Things. Yes.

Hope this helps!

yeah - I was originally thinking a yellowy-brown background, but also wanted to throw up some possible counter colors (blue) because the image is so warm over all. (Btw, tweaked it again xD)

yeah, It's definitely got lots of room for playing with too. I kind of still want to write this out as a full length story, but I'm still going back and forth on the format and how.
