This is my final from my Children's Illustration class. We had to do a retelling of a classic story, poem or fairytale. Naturally, I did fairytale. As I sat and contemplated the many possibilities of the project, I ended up sketching a really sassy looking Gretel, and ran with it. So there you have it. I would really appreciate some critique! As of now, I'm not a big fan of:
* The Witch's shoes- They're so boring! I gotta jazz them up.
* Hansel's hands - Not very flattering shaping or stylization.
* The grass - Couldn't settle on a style or certain way to do the grass, any suggestions, hints, or tips?
* The background - The colors may be too chromatic? Is the green in the windows a little weird? And are those minty lollipops competing too much with the rest of the image?
All things I'll be attending to, but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas?
