Hansel and Gretel! Dastardly duo that Little Red runs into early on in her journey through Everafter..
Nothing like bastardizing liederhosen into some bizarre costuming fit for mentally ill fairytale characters.. this was fun.
Those are giant candy thingies in Gretel's hair. The little caramel wraps, you know? Traditional 'candy' in my mind. The detailing in her dress are supposed to be reminiscent of candy as well, and sad faces. Probably.. tough to make out now though, haha.
I've enjoyed warping my characters more in terms of proportions. I never wanted an entirely realistic style. I'd rather people look at the subject matter, the concept itself, over whether or not someone's neck is too long, etc.. (animators get away with it all the time) and it definitely gives them more character. Like Hansel's big 'ol ears.
You just wanna tug 'em.
I hope you guys like it. Back to 7/13 commissions..
(Chapter Two of Everafter is coming! I promise!)
