Hansel and Gretel - super rough sketch

This is what I've been working on today. A sketch I've done for Hansel and Gretel. I know, I know, I should be working on other spreads for Snow White for Watercolor Wednesdays, but I'm awaiting the arrival of my new super thin, way cool, light box. I figure once I have that, I can work on my SW spreads. So, for today, it's Hansel and Gretel.

I'm hoping to get a few illustrations for my portfolio to show story sequencing. So, please critique away. Is it dynamic enough, how's the composition, should I have the ax fall off the page, etc., etc.?

I look forward to seeing this completed!

Great sketch! I like the gestures. I can feel that boy struggling with the weight of the ax. And I like seeing the whole ax.

I love the house with the little bird on top!

You might try either making the children a bit larger in the foreground or the house further away. That might help to create a more dynamic composition.

Very fun and sweet image! Can't wait to see where you take this.
