An absolutely great impact in the whole. What is very unique ist, that the silhouettes are not black, but this dark, gloomy kind of purple. I also like the lighting and colouring from the top to the ground. Also you enlighened the path slightly, but it is still absolutely clear, that the path back will loose itself in this drowning dark blue purple. I find everything in this deviation quite good - the vision is absolutely clear, the originality is in my opinion, that this is not a traditional sort of fairy-tale illustration, but a new way, without taking the traditional aspects and values of a fairy-tale away. I really appreciate this kind of mixture. The Technique is as far as I saw in your gallery very typical for you, and I can feel this in the picture, since it makes the whole impact wholistic Nice Work!!
I really could see the vision you had when creating this work. The silhouette effect intensifies the image and brings attention to the childrens' figures. The color choices were also excellent, as they very much make the forest gain a sense of interest. The only thing I would recommend altering is the sharpness change between the children and the trees. If you'll notice, there is a white highlight borderlining the childrens' figures, while trees that (with perspective in mind) are the same distance from the light source do not have this feature; I would therefore recommend either removing it entirely or adding some to a few of the trees. The final thing I would like to mention is how light and faint the shadows of the children are, the light source is meant to be so bright their backs look black, their shadows should end up being darker to fit this contrast. Forgive me for the harsher critique, with works containing fewer elements, it is difficult to improve with out getting knit-picky. Thank you. From, Nicole of
Hi! I would like to ask for your permission to use this painting as the poster for a kids play, Hansel and Gretel. It would be perfect and a great help for us! I really love the colors and the fact that they are dark and purple, exactly the colors of the witch, and it's like in the picture you can see Hansel, Gretel and the presence of the witch, her soul. Besides that, my all vision of the play is dark, it's not just a normal play for 2 year old kids, it's for older ones (I am the director and I also play the witch). If you are curious, I can send you some photos we took a couple of days ago at a rehearsal.
