I'm in. Great topic.
ooh- this may be something I can crank out, was too preoccupied to work on the last one, heres hoping I can get a submission together
edit- kinda wish sexy wasnt in there as its likely to pigeonhole alot of the entries but hrm... Ill work with it
very cool. i will try to pull something off this time
I killed my piece. I dont think it qualifies as a valid character concept. Its more of a nude figure study. That's the reason... well, that and I forgot to work this week.
I will rejoin the challenge if I get an actual character idea rather than defaulting to rendering another figure study.

junon, well it's quite open to interpretation I think, and there's so many ways a person can be "sexy" and like penumbra said.
penumbra, I would have assumed "red riding hood" would have been seen as "little red riding hood" fairytale but in modern days. And sexy as in to say she's grown up from a innocent kid, that's why "little" is missing from the topic. "Modern" as in like present.
Sorry for not making it clear, but like with any other ChOW, it's open to your interpretation.
Matt, you cow..
cant promise ill come through in the end for sure, but i want to do this one.

bumskee-Thanks for responding. Its a great topic, I was just having some fun with the possible permutations of the description. I like to twist things a bit.
For example: Little Red Riding Hood, psychologically scarred by the animalistic murder of her Grandmother, grows into a very seductive serial killer who preys on lecherous con men(wolves in sheeps clothing).
She dips the cowl of her cloak in the blood of her victims. On the street she becomes known as "The Red Death".
By the way, your work in the "Hyde" and "Death's Horse" threads was beautifully handled. I admire your ability to draw sensitivity and real expression out of your characters.
Penumbra, I gotta say, I love the way you think (as well as the artwork you produce). I read this and I was thinking kinda boring topic, not thinking outside the box, but after reading your posts, I got kinda of excited about the possibilities that you could work with if you just think out of the box.
rightio, well letsee how far i can stretch this concept in my mind before the rubber band breaks and it all smashes together into a jumbled mess of sorts
Scotwith1T- Thanks, about the thinking and the artwork. I am really striving to educate myself and broaden the way I concieve ideas both artistically and in thought process. CA is already making an impact on me in that respect.
bumskee-Thanks, I think I am leaning in that direction, so thats probably what I will try and develope. You are going to participate as well though, right?
About putting words to your thoughts...well, you can certainly put images to your thoughts. I just talk alot
I might try this one. NO idea where I am going to go with it but I think I will try. The company I work for is going out of business so I am looking for a new job so I may get too busy to finish. :-D
looking good prepsage! looks like she's enjoying it
here's a first sketch
I was looking at my WIP, and found myself quite displeased with the composition ( though I'm sticking with the same basic concept). I think the pose is a little more interesting without obfuscating too many details. Moreover, it's a little more in line with what I've had in mind.
OK; all done. All told, the concept isn't quite hwere I'd like it to be. Don't get me wrong, I'm plenty pleased with it on a technical level, but I don't think I quite conveyed the mood I was going for with the overall character design ( frankly she looks more like a dominatrix than I'd like). That being said, I'm going to go ahead with a full redesign of the character, just as a matter of personal ambition. But for now, here's my entry.

The first blow from the axe was the woodsman’s…a large gash down the beast’s side and gut. With a yelp and a whirl of fur and fangs it turned about… just then from the gash spilled some of its last undigested meal. A hand could be seen with a ring, grandmother’s ring, something inside Red snapped at that moment. Although she was a small girl, she found a strength inside her she had never felt before…pushing aside the woodsman, taking up his axe for her own she began swinging wildly. The wounded wolf trying to get away as blow after blow landed on its bloodied body. The woodsman trying desperately to calm the girl careened back with a mortal wound to the neck. No more would this girl shy away from terror again… no this was the turning point… from now on the wolves of the world (those with and without fur) would have to fear her… yes no longer would she live in fear… the beast lie dead at her feet but something of the beast was now inside her. A gurgling woodsman lay in the corner…soaked in blood, his axe was now hers and she would take it up time and again.
Killing was a justified end to a means… and she meant to do some killing!

Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possiblity of cheating. it is either good or bad. ~ Dali
stage two and final (unless i tweak it again), trying to sculpt the volumes out of the dark with as few strokes as possible:
Red knows how to get the wolves howlin', oh yeah, she fills the house. We water the well, hell, we could piss in it and they'd never notice while she's on. She banks large, I tell ya, that basket of goodies is always topped. But she's a sweet kid, never runs with the wolves after hours, never takes the job home. To her Grandma. Really, her Grandma for gawdsake!
