Red 3 - Character Concept by Wildweasel339 Red 3 - Character Concept by Wildweasel339

This is a character concept for a story developed by Iain McCaig as part of his workshop at the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live convention.

It is a re-telling of Red Riding Hood, in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi setting.

Red is a brain-washed clone who's arm was harvested by the Originals.  Perhaps for cruelty or entertainment, the Originals replace the clone body parts with all manner of prosthetic limbs.

In this concept Red 3 has a cumbersome, but effective, weapon. 

This is another interpretation of the same character: Red 3 - Character Concept - Version 2 by Wildweasel339

Hello there! I am an aspiring 3D Artist and this character really cought my eye, would it be okey for me to turn this into 3D, purely for educational reasons as I want to practise my art? Of course i'll credit the original concept :) Thanks in advance!

Seein' some Maisie Williams in her. Both of these versions of Red are original and just killer. I'm always blown away by how much story you can tell in a single piece.

this arm must be so heavy, the poor thing must be exhausted all the time !
Wonderful design anyway, and as usual rad painting skills !

Yeah, it is a bit silly, but if you're going to have a gun arm, it might as well be a absurdly-large gun arm. :D

Thanks!

I guess ! but that must lead to so funny situations, like. Imagine Red getting into a bed. The bed breaks under the gun. getting into an elevator, nope, sorry, over weight limit.
on the other hand, the "I don't wanna gooooo *flop on floor*" technique must be waaaay more effective than it usually is !

Really awesome!

I love how these character concepts get away from the really static "turnarounds" and show so much more of the character.
Really inspiring for my own work!

It's an interesting concept. Would the wolf be a mutant or a metaphor (i.e. the company that made here and wants to use her for their own purposes)?
Reply
:iconwildweasel339:
Wildweasel339 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, of sorts.  In this case the wolf appears as a surgeon who removes the limbs.  However, because Red is brainwashed and living in a delusion (in a Matrix sort of way), she may see the surgeon as an actual wolf.

:iconsparkus-clark:
Sparkus-Clark Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That'll be nifty. I could see the imagery switching back and forth during her encounters. Or even a transformation sequence, one where the surgeon simply morphs while having a dialog (creepier than the painful squirming most transformations do because it means he's in complete control of his actions).
