I drew Little Red Riding Hood walking through the woods – she carries her axe for comfort and protection. Still, she startles at shadows as she sees the terrifying face of her enemy, the Big Bad Wolf, lurking among the leaves and branches of the trees.
Any excuse to draw trees. It’s been a while! I really like the tree silhouettes in the graphic novel Pride and Prejudice with Zombies so I took some inspiration from there, and for Red, my Poses book has proved invaluable. I can’t recommend it enough – for me it really helps me double check my angles and gesture and its such great practice.
I am continuing my exploration with the polychromos pencils. I wish I had more! They are lovely to use and you can buy 120 of them! I have about 30; and a mission to buy them all!
