Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel find themselves lost in the woods where they discover a candy house. But- little do they know, this neighbor is a witch!

Once again your critiques are welcome!

Very lovely work. I especially like the cottage and the details in the steps and candy canes leading your eye to the door.

Nice use of light and shadow. Good framing around the house. As always nice painting.

Very professionally done. You captured a really cool mood here too.

Hi Jennifer. I like how the texture on your house makes it look like real gingerbread. I would love to see you push it a little bit further by adding more gumdrops/candy/frosting onto the walls. Overall, this is a really nice piece. Good job.

Thanks Dani,
That helps a lot, I'll try and make it more decorative. :)

I love the lighting on the boys face and the way the hair is painted. The color palette is really nice. Dani suggestion is a great one. Adding gum drops would be a great touch. I feel like the paths perspective may be off a bit or maybe the doors right end should come up a tad. . .I could be wrong though.

hey Tolman! Great image! I really like it!

Wow, your talent and technique are amazing. I think it is terrific, but since you ask for critiques here are two thoughts: the chocolate bar path does seem just a little bit "off" in perspective as someone else noted. And I think the children seem on the old side. That is a very mature back Gretel is presenting to us. Hansel also appears older than in the tale, middle school or even early high school age (I have a son about that age), but perhaps this was part of the job specs? Anyway, it is just a terrific piece! I'm in awe.
