Happy birthday Kelly

Took a break from my Hansel and Gretal Project to draw this giraffe for my sister for her birthday. She loves giraffes, so I thought it would be great to draw a giraffe who is just as much a fan of her as she is of them. Happy birthday Kelly.

Sipho (Hansel)

I have been spending a lot of time on the characters. I feel  I need to just make a final decision on the design for Hansel so I can start painting a scene. So here is the final design for the boy, he is being painted up at the moment. His design is simple but it will do.

Gretel update

I made a few changes to her design and I am pretty happy with her overall loo. Next one to do is the boy.

I decided to take the  final design of my witch and paint her in more detail. I  am pretty happy with the end product and think I will paint the other two characters in this way. And hopefully soon I will be able to post up a finished concept painting from a scene in the story, just busy roughing out some thumbnails at the moment :)

Personal Project - Pearl Concepts

I have started a personal project which is based loosely on the story of Hasel and Gretel, however it is set in kenya. She is basically Gretel. I quite like her design, however I still need to explore further with the final painted style. Have not quite found something I like yet.

Sipho concepts

Still not really keen on his design. feedback would be helpful :)

Witch (Sangoma) concept

For the witch I wanted her to be a large woman as it indicates that she has a wealth of food and therofore can lure in the children. I feel I still need to experiment more with colour and the finished style for the characters however I think the final witch design will be the last one, she seems less goofy than the previous one.

Witch's house concepts

As my project is based loosly on the story of Hansel and Gretel I need to design the witches house so that it would lure the children to it. Im not sure how I want it yet, whether it should be made of gingerbread and sweets or just have a big pot of hot food for the starving kids. Some feedback would be great :)
