"And what is your concept for this illustration?"
"Little Red riding hood.....IN SPACE!!!!!!"
I'm not lying. This is how I presented this to my class XD
The assignment was to create a background and character like a picture book/illustration for a folklore/fairytale.
I choose Little Red Riding hood, made him a boy, and put him in a cosmic forest.
Red is from the Urban city, and once a year he goes to visit his grandma in the Cosmic Forest. The Tree's lights are so bright, you couldn't find your way through it on a normal day, but once a year, the lights dim, and Red's Grandma's house emits a light strong enough to be seen and followed.
That's when Red travels to visit her. (In her cute little Chinese house~) I think I made her blind, but in this forest, food is always given to her out side her home from a mystical force. She's the only one allowed to live there (besides the animals that are like light beams).
...this was my baby and I loved it, okay!
I'm terrible at background and I was so proud of this! I got a good grade on this :3
Red's outlines are very different from the cosmic forest outlines.
While the forest dwellers are soft and light, Red's Urban style is hard and crisp. His coloring is kinda of dirty and scuffed, while the forest dwellers are fluffy and smooth.
Red is the older brother of another character I'm going to post up here soon~
