Seems like Sunday postings have been getting more difficult for all of us in the last couple of weeks. Busy as bees we are!!!!!!! Thank goodness right? Thanks for your suggestions on last weeks wolf illo. Am reworking that one and will post at a later date. For now I wanted to show something new. Anyway, here's another rough sketch from my book dummy. Red Riding Hood is leaving her house here with the basket full of goodies for her granny and saying bye to her mom. I know I'm missing the line between fingers 4 and 5 on the mom's hand. Somehow I erased it when I was cleaning this sketch up in photoshop! Didn 't notice until I posted here. Also I'm planning on incorporating the figure of the wolf within the forest ahead. Not the actual wolf like he would be painted in the story but his image within the foliage and hills as a presence. The viewer sees it but the characters are oblivious. The kind of thing where you don't necessarily see it right away but it is there. I hope I can pull it off. I've begun to sketch the wolf in roughly but will keep him in the background as much as possible so as not to steal too much away from the interaction between Red and her Mom. Let me know your thoughts!!!
