Red Alert's Scarf by The-Starhorse Red Alert's Scarf by The-Starhorse
I have this thing for robots in scarves. Yeah, I don't get it either. ;) Watercolor + pencil on Aquabee sketchpad. Done for @mettledoxy over on Twitter, who requested Red Alert in a scarf. :)

I too am a sucker for ze robots in scarves. But that isn't the only reason I really, really like this picture. First, we get to see Red's rare smiles. Very seldom do people draw him happy or serene. Secondly, I like the proportions. Nice broad torso and solid arms. The head could stand to be a little smaller. But altogether, a very solid pose.

Yeah, I wanted to give Rec a happy moment. He does have them occasionally. :) And thanks for the feedback. I always struggle with proportions with these guys.

I totally hear ya. Proportions have always been difficult for me, too. That's one perk to drawing on the computer, I can keep resizing stuff because I NEVER get it right in the first sketch.

Hee, so perfect! I love how you captured the movement of the scarf.
Do you use a scanner, or take a picture of this? I can never get my watercolors to transfer without losing a lot of color.

I used a scanner, and lost color, then color-corrected in Photoshop so it looks like the original again. I keep meaning to post a tutorial on how to do that.

He looks fantastic! I love the pose and the expression on his face is just too perfect and to lovely. Maybe he's just managed to get out for himself for a while and spend some quality time away from all the hectic life around the Ark. The movement of the scarf is wonderful and I love how you have handled the shading in the white sections of both his armor and the drapery of the scarf itself. The blue in the background is just the perfect color to make him pop as well as the hints that you capture throughout the rest of the drawing. I love his hands! I have such a hard time with hands...really needs to practice more... Much <3 here for Red!

Red looks very happy about his scarf--and if this is Kenthalye's Red Alert, he needs one. She has his can out in the snow ALLLL the time.

He almost looks like a candy cane here...

I wanted to do a happy Red for once. These characters are all get stereotyped a little, but they do have different moods -- even Red. ;) So I thought I'd give him a chance to be at peace for a moment. I think it suits him. :)

Well, there is always 'come-out-of-nowhere-and-punch-a-crazy-Brawn-like-a-badaft-Red from the UK Marvel comics.' If I get a Red, I may go that way.

I'm surprised he's allowed the scarf around his neck. It could be a plot to kill him, after all....

Very neat picture. :)
