* I wish I had seen CHOW 69 before Wednesday. I'll finish this one if it kills me!!
* Had more time to think about this one, but about the usual amount of time to draw it.
* Doing the colorwork. Prisma colors and some acrylic paint. I can't wait untill I can get Photoshop, takes so long this way...
I'm loving the entries so far!!
looking good prepsage! looks like she's enjoying it
here's a first sketch
I was looking at my WIP, and found myself quite displeased with the composition ( though I'm sticking with the same basic concept). I think the pose is a little more interesting without obfuscating too many details. Moreover, it's a little more in line with what I've had in mind.
OK; all done. All told, the concept isn't quite hwere I'd like it to be. Don't get me wrong, I'm plenty pleased with it on a technical level, but I don't think I quite conveyed the mood I was going for with the overall character design ( frankly she looks more like a dominatrix than I'd like). That being said, I'm going to go ahead with a full redesign of the character, just as a matter of personal ambition. But for now, here's my entry.
The first blow from the axe was the woodsman’s…a large gash down the beast’s side and gut. With a yelp and a whirl of fur and fangs it turned about… just then from the gash spilled some of its last undigested meal. A hand could be seen with a ring, grandmother’s ring, something inside Red snapped at that moment. Although she was a small girl, she found a strength inside her she had never felt before…pushing aside the woodsman, taking up his axe for her own she began swinging wildly. The wounded wolf trying to get away as blow after blow landed on its bloodied body. The woodsman trying desperately to calm the girl careened back with a mortal wound to the neck. No more would this girl shy away from terror again… no this was the turning point… from now on the wolves of the world (those with and without fur) would have to fear her… yes no longer would she live in fear… the beast lie dead at her feet but something of the beast was now inside her. A gurgling woodsman lay in the corner…soaked in blood, his axe was now hers and she would take it up time and again.
Killing was a justified end to a means… and she meant to do some killing!
Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possiblity of cheating. it is either good or bad. ~ Dali
stage two and final (unless i tweak it again), trying to sculpt the volumes out of the dark with as few strokes as possible:
Red knows how to get the wolves howlin', oh yeah, she fills the house. We water the well, hell, we could piss in it and they'd never notice while she's on. She banks large, I tell ya, that basket of goodies is always topped. But she's a sweet kid, never runs with the wolves after hours, never takes the job home. To her Grandma. Really, her Grandma for gawdsake!

"Little" Red Riding Hood isn't so little anymore...pictured on a recent wolf hunt in Alberta, Canada, the new spokeswoman for the NRA stomped all over her Pro-Gun Control opponent on Hannity & Colmes last Sunday: "I wear this red hood to remind me of the awful day I discovered my grandmother slain by a wolf...if my grandmother had had a gun, she would still be here today! Every citizen needs to exercise their right to bear arms to protect themselves from wildlife predators...and human predators as well! Do you think we'd have so many rapes in this country if every rape victim had pointed a snub-nosed .38 cal in their attackers face? I don't think so!"
good entries so far!!
here's my take...still wip with a few issues hehe

very cool sketches so far pld:
heres a first wip:
This sounds like a fun topic for my first CHOW! Count me in!
Ok, here's a WIP. Not nearly as creative as some others that have been posted (and eerily similar to some others), but I like her, so that's cool
edit: looks like I'm not gonna have time to finish her. maybe next round though
hello everyone... this is my 2nd attempt to participate CHOW (the 1st one i even didn't finished it ) so this is my perception about modern day red riding hood:
after the incident with the wolf and granny, Red riding hood realizes that luck won't come twice, hunters won't there every time she needed help in danger, she knows that she have to be able to protect herself, so she learn many kinds of martial arts, and seeks the path of power, so she can protect herself anytime, and even maybe protect other people.
and this is my final piece:
Oi, guess I'm gonna throw in now. Hah my first CHOW... my first "...of the Week" actually.
What's a young college student with a hefty tuition to do? Why, pick up a night job, of course. Clad in her signature red hoodie, she hits the streets once a month as a freelance werewolf hunter. Sure, the mortality rate for her line of work is pretty high, but so's the payscale. A good thing too, because genuine silver bullets are a necessary business expense.
Really diggin' Hurricane's. Nice work all.
Red Riding Hood ran too the city. There she became addicted to her own wolves, herion and sex, turning tricks for johns that treat her little more then a piece of meat. She wonders if this life in the modern world is worth it after a few bills are thrown her way and before the drugs enter her blood. She wonders about ending it, but these wolves are of her own making and the darkness is not the hunter that will save her.
A little rushed at the end, the back ground, and I wanted to make the road way filled with her own wanted addictions, just didn't have the time.
Hello's everyone, i wanted to participate in the previous CHOW but i found it out the night before the due line, anyways here is my try at this
eeee, i dunno if i can finish this =(
We of Bounty Magazine our proud to have the honor of interviewing a legend in our world, after fated run with Michael "Big Bad Wolf" Dehayes. Red was forever altered into who she became and her life's work. Here she is posted with Dehayes most prized possession, a wolf skin he often disguised while out assaulting the unsuspecting public.
Red riding Death we salute you as our huntress of the month
Art is expression; so stop being emo!
Lots of entries this week and some really awesome looking images!
Modern Day Red Riding Hood
After the incident years ago involving the wolf and her grandma, red owes her life to one man, the hunter. He saved them both from death. Time has passed since then, and sadly her grandma has died, and following that the hunter became ill and also has passed away. But red decided to continue his legacy of protecting the local villages from the wolves in the forest. She hunts them down!!!
Not happiest with this really, BUT my skills are improving slightly over the past 4 chows i've done, so its really worth doing!
EDIT: As finished as I can get it, mine eyes can't judge how it looks anymore (sorry min ).
I'll try and get in on this one, maybe I can make up for my dire entry for the last CHow. Loads of great looking entries so far, I'm especially fond of the pieces by Hurricane and Meatsworthy
Here's a wip. Having some problems with this but maybe some crits can sort me out? I was going to have Red swimming in the lake sorta splashing about, seems like everyone has gone for the wolf killer angle so I decided on her finally feeling safe in the woods...i dunno. My first problem is that the character would probably be too small to count as a character design as opposed to a scene.
Secondly I'm not loving the colours. I'm thinking of adding more darks to up the contrast? It just isn't feeling rich enough.I could do with a second opinion though.
Anyway, i'll stop going on and show the damn image already.
Progress is slooooowwww
I dont have the time or desire to finish this for tomorrow, i'm not really feeling it and it's too late to start a new one so i guess I'm out
Ive been pretty dormant around here lately.. but, Im going to make my return with this entry... Heres my place holder for now... Oh, crap.. the image upload feature isnt working?
Taken with my cell camera... Still gotta work out some issues but this is the idea..
Bumskee-- bumskee--- Yeah, buddy.. Ive been on a huge artistic hump but, it seems like the motors are starting to turn again.... Im going to give this round my best go in a long time.. Eventhough women by far are not my speciality!
Bluefooted-- you know I didnt notice the small head and legs until I saw it on the computer.. I figure I have one more sketch after this update I'll draw it one more time today before I leave work and hopefully bang it out tomorrow during the day...!
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
Who said wolf ate grandma ?
Once upon a time the wulf ate here, remember.
Final. A bit limited for time, but wanted to try to keep it a bit looser than some of my prevous entries in any case. Hope it's up to standard. Gotta dash, away for the weekend, hope to get some comments up on Monday.
Can't look at this anymore, and don't have time to take it further...
