"Oh Wolfy! Oh Wolfy, ain't you the one?"
Rabbit's nickname for his boyfriend Tyr makes me think of the Tex Avery cartoons "Red Hot Riding Hood" and "Swing Shift Cinderella", both of which feature Miss Red (she's never given a name).
So naturally when I saw the Skins AU Gender Swap Challenge on DeviantArt I figured a female Rabbit would dress up as Red for Halloween and sing to her Wolfy at Lloyd's bar, most likely ON the bar, much to everyone's amusement and Tyr's embarrassment, of course.

To get the hair, costume, and pose as close as possible to Red's, I referenced quite a few screenshots from Red Hot Riding Hood. Not that I'm complaining because she's one of my favorite cartoon characters of all time.
I tried to make her look like she is winking at Tyr as she's singing but I'm not sure that I succeeded. I know her right (our left) hand looks off but I've always struggled with hands. At least her left hand looks halfway decent. (I've left off Rabbit's tattoo again. I can't ever get it right!)

If you don't know Red, I guarantee you know of at least one character based on her or have seen her make a cameo.
Jessica Rabbit is based on Red as is Cameron Diaz's character Tina in the movie The Mask.
She makes quite a few appearances under the name Miss Vavoom in the Droopy & Dripple sketches of The Tom and Jerry Kids Show.
Red makes a cameo in Quest for Camelot during Devon and Cornwall's "If I didn't have you" number.

This art is fanart of the character Rabbit (who is a Smoke, which is a type of vampire; Tyr, his Wolfy, is a Skin, which is a type of werewolf) from LJ Phillips' webcomic "Skins" and the companion strip, "Under My Skin". (Be warned that some of the pages contain images that are NSFW.) Rabbit is property of LJ Phillips and this piece is a tribute to her character and "Miss Red". Please don't alter, copy, or redistribute it as your own.

Thanks Cheesy She's colored using Prismacolor Premiers: 10% French Grey for the skin, White for her hair, Mulberry for her irises, Pink for the sclera, and Crimson Red for her lipstick, outfit and accessories. She was drawn with a cheap .5mm lead pencil then outlined with an ultra fine tip Sharpie. The color of the paper makes the colors stand out more, too.

I LOVE Tex Avery and Red is one of my favorite characters!
I remember watching the Tex Avery Show on CartoonNetwork and always loved Red because she's so spunky.

Yay! The pose was the hardest part so I'm glad it came out right.
