Hansel and Gretel by cheerful-cherub Hansel and Gretel by cheerful-cherub
A scene from the children's fairytale 'Hansel and Gretel', about a cannibalistic witch who lures children to her confectionery house in the woods.

I'm not 100% happy with this image, there is something that needs changing that I can't put my finger on. Any ideas?

Hansel and Gretel by ~cheerful-cherub "I found it interesting in that it's a drastic contradiction in styles brought together in one piece. The illustration style is also different from most that you encounter in the vector art section of DA" ( Suggested by ser and Featured by zilla774 )

I LOVE IT!

I love it, love it, LOVE IT! It's just really..different. I just love the style it's done in, very different, very unique, and I love how the happy things all stand out and are all bright colours, and yet the viewer KNOWS that they are about to enter something that's bad news! Very cute, I really like what you've done! :D Well done!

I think its great the way it is. Its true what alot of people have said, about the children in the foreground looking flat/pasted and whatnot, but this isn't a realism piece. I think their awkwardness adds to the quirky, funky surreal style of this piece. I love the expression on their faces and the colour and contrast work really well. :)

One of the few Faerie Tales I kinda enjoy, but yeah freaky! :O_o: Don't see much artwork about the old stories though...anyway it gives an ironic gesture for there is mixture of evil and good.

Ahh....makes me want to read my old Faerie Tales again! Last, sweet! (Literally!)
