RWBYTrade by Elosande RWBYTrade by Elosande
My half of the art trade with :iconyaynyayn: The objective was to take a character from the RWBY series and design ourselves as that char. After watching a few episodes it's safe to say...it's not really my thing but this trade turned out more fun then I expected. it was hard choosing which of the four main characters to work with, I ultimately went with Red in spite of her rediculous weapon...it's a rifle/shotgun hybrid with a scope that turns into a giant scythe that can still shoot bullets...sigh. The only thing redeeming about it is that it reminded me of a Switchaxe from Monster Hunter. I actually did a redesign of the weapon but it took the char too far away from it's source and I had to revert to Red's design.

RWBY is made by Rooster Teeth Studios.
this is my drawing.

Yeah, me too. She really loves the character and wants to do her justice.

I think I like your interpretation far more than the official series.  And I'm glad that I'm not the only one who doesn't like the show... Sometimes I just feel like I'm an old man yelling at the kids to get off my lawn!

 Ha ha, I know that feeling so hard.  To it's credit it did have the characters and setup that I may have found interesting back when I was younger.  As for me nowadays I'm just not a big fan.  Guess we're just the odd ones out of the target audience.

There's a reason why Crescent Rose (the scythe/gun) can still shoot when it's a scythe. Ruby, being rather small in stature, uses the shots' recoil to help her swing the giant scythe. It adds a scary amount of speed to her swings.

But I digress.
Nice job on your interpretation. The red hood seems a bit out of place on a male character though.

Ah so it works kinda like Yellow using her shots to make her attacks go faster.  Still seems odd but hey, at least they found a creative way to make use of it!  and the hood did turn into more of a poncho but I guess it didn't translate as well.  Thank ya kindly for the comment!

Yep. Monty's philosophy on fight choreography is "no wasted energy". If you look at Haloid or Dead Fantasy, you can see that each movement, each action flows so fluidly with the next. The fight choreo for the scenes he did in RvB season 10 is another good example of that.

Eh, to me if fights flow too fluidly they stop feeling like fights and are more like a dance where the character keeps bumping into other people.  It looks real good but it's simply less believable.  That's just my opinion though.

That's a good point. I guess I'm just a sucker for fight-dance type things :3
