Big Bad Little Red II by SquirrelShaver Big Bad Little Red II by SquirrelShaver
Some of you may recognize this from when I first started. Originally this was a test for when I was trying to get my foot in Zenescope's door but they didn't have any use for it at the time. So no, nearly 2 years later, the time arrived that gave this piece a chance for publication but I sold the original long ago. Before I even had a full size scanner or even a computer at my house! The only option was to redraw the piece and we had to flip the image 180 degrees from the original or her ass would be the front cover.

For me revisiting a piece I once drew is a little bitter sweet. While it was nice to put a fresh touch on this with the updated style, and much needed corrections to the face, it sometimes feels a bit redundant because, well I already drew it once. In the end I think both pieces have equal strengths with neither being better than the other.

Anywho, in case I didn't mention it in the original this layout is a homage to one of my favorite Playboy models, Karen Mcdougal and one of my favorite photo shoots featuring her. We dated in high school. ;)

You'll be able to score this exclusive wrap-around cover at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con in Mesa, Arizona on January 8th & 9th. Hope to see you there!

I really love the different textures you have going on in this piece, it's really effective. I liked your original drawing too but I think in this one her face is far more natural. :heart: Awesome stuff!

This classic look to it gives Red a sense of glamour that is timeless. It is sexy, sophisticated and beautifully laid out. I only wish I were able to be in Mesa to snag one in color...

Hahahahaha that's exactly when I glimpsed (late, missed it) Nei colors on it, even if she turned blonde.. The lineart, hair cut and outfit is definitely a Karen PB shoot !

I like this one a lot !! (Have always found miss Mc Dougal's smile a melting one !)
