I usually mark this time of the year with the ugliest bunny I can conceive of. This one may have benefited from my coming home in a terrible mood. Four hours later my migraine was gone and this had appeared on my laptop screen.

It kind of looks like Yoda. Or a Sith version of him.

this is in four hours? the best i can conceive in four hours is an angular soldier with no background...

This was a very productive four hours. I've spent days on other pieces that didn't turn out nearly as well.

ah, alright

Ugh...no one could draw an uglier bunny. That's a compliment.

What are you using to create these? oh my gosh!
jflaxman's avatar
I've used a lot of different methods, but most of my pictures (including this one) start as pencil drawings which are scanned and re-opened in Photoshop. Most of the colouring is done in a new Multiply layer. Fine details and sharp highlights are added after the image is flattened. I posted a tutorial that covers the process in detail here [link]. I've since discovered new techniques that might be worth covering as well.

No seriously this thing really catches the eye, and then reading that it's supposed to be a bunny I had to laugh!

Hey man, I'm back on DA after along absence. You've been very prolific!

I love his. It reminds me of the 'Gremlins' movies from the eighties. Is this a deliberate reference to that franchise, in which cute things also turn ugly?

Great to have you back. This wasn't a deliberate Gremlins reference, though it might be a subconscious one. I only got to see those films at Naomi's a couple of years ago, and the cute becomes evil theme was mildly entertaining.
