OUaT - The Huntsman and the Wolf by Achen089 OUaT - The Huntsman and the Wolf by Achen089
I started this as a quick and simple sketch between commissions but then i got really into it and added a bit of a background and whatnot. :woohoo:
Red and the Huntsman from Once Upon a Time because i totally ship them, in a Beauty and the Beast true genderbend scenario. :eyes: I like to think that the Huntsman asked from the Queen to ban wolf hunting not only because of his affiliation with the wolves but also to protect Ruby who i assume was not a favourite with the locals until Snow made her a member of the round table and all. So this is my vision of how they could have met, with the Huntsman helping her escape from an angry village mob or something; cause she did kill a whole lot of people in the meantime after all.

I'm thinking my Huntsman looks a bit (or more) like tv-show-Robb-Stark but maybe it's because of my Game of Thrones withdrawal symptoms..

Red (Riding Hood)/Ruby and the Huntsman are from ABC's tv series Once Upon a Time.

Before OUaT I was shipping SnowHunt. But now its RedHunt all the way. I love how the drawing tells the story. I can see the fear on Red's face.

Have you read the graphic novel Shadow of the Queen? Red/Huntsman are canon!

Um, after seeing this drawing, I looked up the tv show, and started watching it, but from season two. Now I'm watching it from the beginning. I didn't ruin it for me too much, did I? I watched the first 5 episodes of season 2. It's really good though. Now I finished the first ever. Still good, even though some was given away.

Lovely, lovely work! First off I congratulate you on a drawing of a man protecting a woman that does NOT look like a hostage situation. It happens less likely the one would think.

Second off...that's not my OTP...but they totally are bros (even if one of them is a girl). Can I just get a show that has these two as a monster-hunting team or something? It could be a spin-off...or a comic book series!

I'm not sure what you mean by hostage-situation-like? But i'm glad you liked it all the same. :D

And Red and the Huntsman would make an interesting team whichever way you see it indeed. In fact, i already have an idea for a comic with them in my mind which evolved from this drawing. ;)

What I mean is a lot of 'protective' art where the girl is in front of the guy (more like a shield then a lover) and he's got his arm and weapon in front of her while he's standing behind her. It's something you see more in anime then anything else.

If you do a comic I want to see it! OUAT needs more fancomics as it is and that would be an awesome story!

You mean like how Daniel wasn't Regina's true love, so he got killed off/turned into a monster?! Seriously. Ruby needs some love in her life, but there can only be one true love for a person, and if you're unlucky, you miss your chance at ultimate happiness.

Well, i don't know if you're any familiar with the premise of the show but it's about famous fairytale and fictional characters that end up trapped in our world, having no memories of who they were. The man was the Huntsman from Snow White with a bit of a Mowgli-like background, having been raised by wolves, and the woman, Ruby, in an interesting twist, happens to be both Red Riding Hood and the Wolf from the famous fairytale by being a werewolf. At first she has no memory of/during her transformations though so she kills and/or eats several of her townspeople which i'm assuming would lead to her being hunted down at some point. And i thought that with both of the characters being pariahs and affiliated with wolves, well they could make quite a team had they met. :XD:
I hope the drawing makes a bit more sense now. ;)
