Conejo by skifi Conejo by skifi
And even another collaboration with :iconrickgriffin: *RickGriffin, from a picture he drew on a sketchbook he auctioned. There were some cool poses there, and since I like a lot his style, I'm happy to have got permission to color some of them ^______^

It's your fault, Rick, you lure me to do this! XD;;

PS: If you're wondering, that's Juan Carlos I Park, at Campo de las Naciones, Madrid :] So he's a spanish bunny. Did you know "Spain" comes from "Hispania", meaning "land of bunnies"? :D lol

surprisingly I didn't know that
I've always enjoyed poses like this
and nice work on the colors :3

"I like a lot his style"
should be "I like his style a lot"

"happy to have got permission"
should be "happy to have gotten permission"

Oooo, see, you're getting better with every one! NITPICKING TIME! D<

You've been getting some neat effects with putting CG characters in photo backgrounds, and you've gotten much better at making them fit together! Now, you need to get the photo bits you use to fit with each other better! (I can tell you've been using different photo sources for overlapping foreground and background elements. :3) It's simply a matter of looking at them both objectively, and making them look like they came from the same pic, or else it tends to look a bit jarring. For example! The background pic you've chosen for this one has a lot of light bloom, likely caused by a filter over the camera lens when the picture was taken (or a digital effect to a similar end), but the foreground elements are crisp and clean and show none of the light bloom that you can see in the background pic. Make sense?

I've found a quick, easy trick to blending different sources together in an image is to drop a light (usually 15% opacity or less) color screen over the entire image after you've finished. The specific color will vary depending on the entire piece, but it's a little touch that usually can't be noticed by itself, but helps give all of the elements an extra touch of unity. I use this pretty much anytime I'm doing something like this (most recent example I can think of is my FFXI sig piece - used a photo I took for the bg, and a model export of my character...when I was finished otherwise with the piece, I put a light color screen over the entire thing. I could grab the PSD source file and post comparison pics if you want. :P lol)

OKAY! I've rambled a really long time. o.o;;;

"Spain" comes from "Hispania", meaning "land of bunnies"? I didn't know it!
I'm studiyng Spanish at school, but teachers did never tell such a thing like this! If they would have told things and curiosities like this, could be really better and students could be really happy to go to school!!^^
Very good work!^^ :+fav:!

Si, cierto que España viene de ahí. Aunque... todos recordamos a tu querido y abandonado conejo Curr (Si, el "curro currito" XD). Ya veo que nunca te despegas del parque ese, tambien hiciste una foto con Inuki ahí para Frappuccinos.

Pues sí, la pose es muy buena.
Ahora parece que los conejos están de moda en todas partes (de hecho, estoy haciendo una conejita...)...! :D
¿Seguro que Hispania significa "tierra de conejos"? Corrígeme si me equivoco, pero creo que conejo en latín es "cunniculum", y en griego es "couvieli"... :?

"Hispania" proviene del fenicio i-spn-ya, un término cuyo uso está documentado desde el segundo milenio antes de Cristo, en inscripciones ugaríticas. Los fenicios constituyeron la primera civilización no ibérica que llegó a la península para expandir su comercio y que fundó, entre otras, Cádiz, la ciudad habitada más antigua de Europa Occidental. Los romanos tomaron la denominación de los vencidos cartagineses, interpretando el prefijo i como "costa", "isla" o "tierra", con ya con el significado de "región". El lexema spn, que en hebreo se puede leer como saphan, se tradujo como "conejos" (en realidad damanes, unos roedores similares al conejo extendidos por África y el Creciente Fértil). Los romanos, por tanto, le dieron a Hispania el significado de "tierra abundante en conejos", un uso recogido por Cicerón, César, Plinio el Viejo, Catón, Tito Livio y, en particular, Cátulo, que se refiere a Hispania como península cuniculosa (en algunas monedas acuñadas en la é;poca de Adriano figuraban personificaciones de Hispania como una dama sentada y con un conejo a sus pies). :nod:
