Tex Avery's Red by HolliGenet Tex Avery's Red by HolliGenet
Tex Avery's Red, or "Little Red" from a series of very adult geared cartoons in the 1940s. This scan looks horrible btw; it looks much better in person.

This is her outfit and appearance from the 2 shorts, Little Rural Riding Hood but more specifically Swing Shift Cinderella for my references. :D I drew this specifically for something...I'll tell you about it later, LOL.

This is actually only a 4 inch wide color rendition of a much bigger sketch. Maybe I'll make a bigger color version sometime. *shrugs* The color scanned so horribly, I might consider doing a computer coloring. That's what happens when a character you're drawing is pretty simple in design and especially in color.

Her proportions drove me nuts. Nothing remotely close to correct female anatomy in all the pictures I leafed through for reference, LOL

Copic marker, Verethin pencils on heavy drawing paper

Wooow...this is great!! The colours seem perfect to me :)

How did you colour the hair? I can colour the other parts of the body pretty well, but I'm kinda screwed on the hair front. XD

:la:

Several, but light layers of Copic marker. That's why the transition from the highlight to the rest of her hair is very subtle.

Even though you say the color suxed when scanned, I like how the colors were used. Very soft.

I was trying to mimic the colors of the original cartoons. The cartoons are bright, but even flatter in coloring.

Oh wow. I looked it up...really flat in color despite it's brightness.

Oh yes indeed. If anything, I added a lot more depth and shadow to the character than what she typically gets. lol
