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 version, Red 3 is burdened by a life-crippling rusty hunk of metal.
