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.

I absolutely love Fables. And James Jean is my favorite artist. Question, where'd you get the Fables Logo? I cant find it for the life of me.
Viethra-Schepherd Featured By Owner May 24, 2007
LOL Wolf is a powder wig. Red needs a belt. I really like this series. I have read the first graphic novel just recently. Sherilen Van Valkeburgh should have been a bit more careful when doing page 22 and page 102. I like the composition of this pic. You have great painting skills.
Elestial Featured By Owner May 24, 2007
My little Red...How large your breasts are..O_o
lol. Real fun. I like it. Her grandma must of died after seeing that site of her grandaughter. It wasn't the wolf that killed her.

I absolutely love this series. Fables rocks. You did an excellent piece here, I could actually see this as a cover for one of the graphic novels or paperbacks.

I love the smell lines. I mean, I love the whole thing, but the smell lines are a great touch.

The wolf looks more like a golden retriever to me... but other than that, this certainly deserves a place among the other masterpieces in your gallery.

jacksprat Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2006
You did a really good job imitating the cover artist's style (what's that guy/girl's name? I can never remember it) while still maintaining your own unique flair(sp?). The hair on Bigby looks a little odd--almost feminine, really--but Red's outfit is very nice--reminds me of Chiodo. Yay Bill Willingham!
MPBoruff Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2006
Wow, I've been reading Fables since issue 1, and this definitly deserves to be a cover.
