Art Project series-Restraint

Blah blah blah, part of an art project for school, narrowed down to five images total.

I've actually completed the project and I handed it in today (wheeh!) It looks great as an installation, but I don't think I'll be able to photograph it for Devart with much detail, as it's kind of a "have a close look" kind of work. Nevertheless, I'm glad that my art teacher seems to have changed her mind slightly when she saw the artworks PRESENTED AS AN ISNTALLATION >_o

Anyway, this is Restraint. Typically, we all know that lapin bunnies are the epitome of vulnerability and whatnot.

Wow! I thought you did this with pencil crayons on paper, I could never create anything this good looking with a tablet. I loves this, not just because it looks it great, but because it portrays such strong emotional distress (or something that's really emotional), the poor little bunny almost brings a tear to my eye. This is a nice change from all the happy-go-lucky Anthro art I'm used to seeing everywhere else. You definitely know your stuff, and it's nice to see artists diversifying (if that's right word I'm looking for) their works. Excellent work and a job well done!

I totally agree with ya on the vulnerability part.
this is awsome yet kinda odd cause I had come up with a charachter that looks alot like this and I put it in the same pose, oh well you know what they say "great minds think alike !"

Nice chains, and the blue eyes stick out, which is wonderful

the character is so identifyable with. it makes me want to ease her pain, but with real things. it makes me want to make her feel better, to fix her problems.(sorry if it seems like i'm bugging you :p)

Ah, that's definitely got the emo. Love that eye... The little glimmer accross the chains is great.
One of my friends went to the theater release of Princess Mononoke. There was mother who brought a couple of kids who went. Appearently she thought, "Anime is like a cartoon, and cartoons are all fun and happy." I'm thinkin' she was a bit surprised. A lot of people don't take anthro stuff seriously because it's animals. A lot of kid shows are based off talking animals. I'd think antrho can sometimes be far better as one's whole body shows the expression and thoughts as opposed to just a face. Ears, possible tail or fur. It all goes into what makes things "real."
Ryanide's avatar
Yes! Exactly! That's the sort of thing I aim for in my anthro: I want to prove that anthro doesn't have to be limited to children's cartoons and porn -_- It can be an artistically meaningful style. In fact, I think that visuals shouldn't matter in determining the target audience of a story or artwork.

I'm glad someone understands!

sad sad very sad but a sick picture you draw this by hand??? and also why not loneliness or something that means cut off from the rest of the world like erm......... outcast
Ryanide's avatar
Because this isn't loneliness, this is restraint, captivity and absence of freedom. Yeah, I drew it with mah tablettt11! I loves my tablet.
neonhowl's avatar

This is definetly one of my favorites of the five. If only because in some ways I can relate. Great work on this, darlin'. I love the expression the poor dear has, so sad and scared.
