Scarlet by 6SeaCat9 Scarlet by 6SeaCat9
Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Little Red Riding Hood, who lived in a small cottage in the forest with her Grandmother. The Grandmother was a greedy, bitter, lazy old woman who's only love was money, and to get her precious gold, she sold her granddaughter out to any traveling man who wanted her.

One day, Little Red overheard her Grandmother preparing to sell her to another customer; a burly, brutish woodcutter. Little Red, not wanting to be sold again, slipped out of her room and ran into the forest, but the woodcutter had seen her, and gave chase. He chased Little Red deeper and deeper into the forest until he finally caught her, but before he could take her for himself, something rustled in the bushes.

A giant wolf sprang out through the trees and attacked the woodcutter, giving Little Red enough time to hide behind a tree, where she watched as the woodcutter tried to protect himself from the giant wolf, but within moments, there was little left of the sick man.

The Wolf turned to Little Red, and to her shock he spoke, telling her she was safe. This frightened her, so she ran back to her Grandmother's house, her fear consuming her too much to think clearly. The greedy old woman locked Little Red in her room with the windows barred shut, and left her there until the next customer should come along.

And later that night, someone knocked at the door, and the Grandmother opened it quickly, expecting another customer with pockets filled with gold... but instead was met by the Wolf, in human disguise. The Wolf tricked her into giving him Little Red, promising to pay once he was done, but as soon as the old woman opened the door to Little Red's room, the Wolf transformed and frightened her Grandmother near to death, then put Little Red onto his back and ran off into the night.

He took Little Red deep into the forest, to his home, and the two were never seen again...

Name: Scarlet (aka Little Red Riding Hood)

Age: 15

Height: 5'6''

Weight: Light as a Feather

Back Story: (Above)

Abilities: Scarlet is able to summon dark, wolf-engraved weapons on a whim, and she can move faster than normal humans.

Personality: Quiet, sometimes shy, but can be happy at times. She is also very loyal to her Master.

Okay! So this is my new character, Scarlet, a variant of Little Red Riding Hood. Those weapons on the page are the ones she typically summons, and that choker is the one around her neck. Its actually a collar that Warg gave her.

PS: For all of you who are wondering, I used a base as reference for this. Literally what I do is look at the base, draw a bit, look at the base again, then draw a bit more, so my head literally goes up and down all day.

I've seen darker. Not sure if you've seen the new Red Riding Hood movie directed by Catherine Hardwicke, but it reminds me a little of your idea. It's different though, but similar. The wolf can turn into a man and only the wolf could talk to Red Riding hood.

Interesting take on the fairy tale...and do mine eyes deceive me, or has your drawing skill with people just gotten awesome!? Really, she's one of your best! She's delicate and pretty with those big eyes...so cute!

Why Scarlet, what big eyes you have.

You are welcome! She's so damn cute! Too bad her grandmother's an evil bitch from Hell.

Ah yes, of course...*eyes Granny menacingly*

I'm all hyper because of that RP with Ratigan and Olivia over at Tumblr. *Cries for the dying Ratigan and his confoozling reactions to the cuteness that is Older Olivia*

Seriously, the person RPing is so AWESOME at it.
