Random extra art 'cause why not? XD

I very recently finally sat down and watched RWBY. Needless to say, I enjoyed it (otherwise, why would I be crossing it over with Rain?) As my wife put it, "it's a little bit of a trope fest," but it still manages to be fun to watch, with an overall likable cast.

And yes, I did consider including more of the Rain cast dressed as more of the cast of RWBY. There are certainly enough characters that I COULD probably get everyone. But between that being so many people to draw, and the fact that I was getting really stopped up on who would be who (just one of many examples: is Emily more of a Yang because of her appearance, or more of a Weiss because of her personality?), I decided to keep it simple. If perhaps a little obvious. XD

Rudy's appearance here as Ruby (as Ruby) was too perfect not to use. I decided I wanted some banter with Gavin in there (who is dressed as Jaune), to really make this fun. I'm pretty happy with the results overall.

Maybe someday when I'm not drowning in other tasks I need to do, there will be a full-size crossover (just put it on the list of things to crossover with Rain someday). Or at the very least, something of a more strict RWBY fanart (since I'm still itching to draw my favorite character).

I want to see all of them as Ruby characters. Please do it. I wanna see Rain as a character. Personally i see her as either Blake or Pryha

@Atomic dragon: i think rain as blake has more logic, since they both have to hide who they are

works on many levels

As TCCL said above, Blake could probably identify somewhat with Rain (and most Trans* folk), what with most of the time hiding her birth status. (See also: Penny.)
But, also, the two main teams are analogy references to other characters. Team RWBY are references to Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Beauty (Bell), and Goldilocks. Team JNPR are Joan of Arc, Thor, Achilles, and Hua Mulan.
So the second team's theme is: people or characters who had to crossdress for the sake of their missions, and are portrayed as their gender-swapped version. (even using fighting styles native to the character's influence.)

In other news: I loved this cosplay joke.

@JRP/BJP:
Uhhh...when did Achilles or Thor ever have to crossdress? (I'm now imagining them in cute dresses and getting weirded out.)
I think Penny fits the best with Rain because of the "You're still a real girl" scene.
