I've been looking at your artwork lately since your "Angel" piqued my interest. So far I like what I've seen, you're obviously exceptionally talented.

I'd like to start off this critique by saying this is one of the most impressive things I've come across on DA. The execution, the colors, the shading, and the concept. It's all perfect.

When I first saw it, I thought of how brave the girl must be to approach a creature like that. My second thought was "Why didn't the creature immediately eat her?" And suddenly the message of this picture came to me. "Face your fears, they may not be as scary as you think." This single picture speaks volumes.

The originality is there. I've never seen a concept like this before and I love it.

The technique is perfect. I love the shading of the wolf and how every little detail stands out in perfect clarity. Then you have Red Riding Hood, standing like a beacon of light in the shadow of something so terrifying. She stands out well, without drawing all the focus. Amazing work.

I'm adding this picture to my favorites and giving you a 5/5 rating. This is truly a work of art.

Once again - it is a pleasure to critique one of =sanguisGelidus's masterpieces. :clap:

It's always interesting to see a new rendition of a legend, mythology, or bedtime story. Though Little Red Riding Hood is popularly redone - it is not often you come across such an interesting, skillful interpretation.

The one thing that I appreciate the most about this piece is the detail. I mean, check out the fur! And the grass! I can hardly look away from the strokes and skillful layering. The foreground and background are easily separated, and yet there is so much gorgeous depth.

I actually adore the glowing eyes and the gigantic stature. It's what separates this piece from most. Little Red Riding Hood's small gesture is so sweet and adds a warmheartedness to an otherwise daunting picture.

The only suggestion I have is the left foot. Paw... whatever. :giggle: It does seem a bit awkward, but at the same time - it makes sense for it to seem closer up. Perhaps it even helps create the image's depth?

All in all, this is another gorgeous piece that I couldn't help but offer my thoughts on. Once again, amazing work. :clap:
