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.

Very nice style! I am trying to draw those kinda cartoon broads some how... :XD: I can't seem to find the right animation! PS: My favorite cartoon slut is Jessica Rabbit! :dance:

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
