Red Riding Hood

I found this old painting of mine which I’d like to share with you because it has some nostalgic value to me: It is the first painting I did with my Intuos 4 and also the very first digital painting I ever created. So in this way it was the beginning of a very intense friendship between me and my new favorite medium.
The painting was inspired by a song of Patrick Wolf (which you can find here: Patrick Wolf – Short Story). I am a big fan of fairy tales and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ has always been my favorite.
Looking at this painting today, I’d say it is very messy and a lot of stuff doesn’t really work in it. I had a lot to learn (and still have) but it’s nice to see my progress and development. Images like this show you where you once started and where you are today. <3
