Red Hood Delivery by Artgerm Red Hood Delivery by Artgerm
It has been a while since my last submission due to my current comic work of GI Joe - American Elite. Now the work is done (yay!) and I managed to squeeze out a little of my time to do something fun.

I like the comic Fables (vertigo) alot and decided to make a "sort of" fanart of it based on Little Red Riding Hood, with a modern twist. It is fun and hope u guys like it. :)

Done in Painter IX. 7 hours.

** GFC = Grandma Fried Chicken. :P

that is indeed a very interesting fable, with many interpretations. Bruno Bettleheim made a psychoanalitic interpretation that underlines the sexual meanings in the sub-text. The red of the riding hood is a metaphor of menstruation while the dark woods is the fear of sexuality that newly flowered girls have, and of course the wolf represents the man, whose attitude towards sex is akin to that of a predator.
Someone also pointed that in the age from which this tale comes from, red capes were oft worn by prostitutes, and an early version points out that well-mannered girls should never give confidence to strangers, because some of them are hungry wolves that hide behind the mask of kindness. Namely, it was one version of the tale in which Red Riding Hood was not saved by the woodcutter or hunter that kills the wolf, she just dies like that.

I love Fables!

And even though this isn't at all what their version of Red is like, I think you have captured the feel of the series beautifully! Your atmosphere is perfect.

Amazing!
