Gord-MacDonald, crazy start, heh, going to work this up?

Nekomouse, admirable to do this with your responsibilities, I'd suggest just grabbing a bunch of ref to start to put together the figure. Think about axes (shoulder, hips), centerline of the body etc. Also it might be helfpul to photocollage images / ref together first and then to redraw it.

stridiggio, nice to have you join, I can't tell yet what's happening, I might suggest doing a drawing first? It's up to you, but I always think it's helpful to draw things out a little before tackling a big concept.

2nd WIP - still just messing around, decided to make him decidedly more giant:

well thx alot for the guides and guidelines Rebeccak greyscale looks appealing now more then ever befor (didnt like it >.> )
well as there is still alot of work to be done ive decided to turn my image into greyscale (kinda downgrading it abit T_T ) and started working on it to improve it. i think that incompared to the first one and second one its better but still long way to go :

there is still work to be done on the road and buildings and improving the rest of the things on the image.
comments and critiques are welcomed ^_^
and great work on your progress

Bad quality because I had to take pictures and my scanners not bit enough, but I will update when I scan at school

Hi folks,

mlutz, I like the contrast, make the bunny more shiny!

Nothingness, that looks pretty promising, not sure about the ears on the back, though...

Rebecca, I can't decide wether your bunny is still cute or already creepy as hell!

so, I took a slightly different approach... it's been on those crazy nights, or, to quote Gene:

Youre wound up tight, gotta let off steam

Anyway, I will concentrate on her (concept) and will give her the full value range. The scene I will give a very narrow value range.

We'll see:

preparatory drawing (from photo reference, added playoby bunny costume)

Hello again,
Rebeccak: Of course that drawing is very important, I did the homework today . the previous post was a mini dark fuzzy 'brainstorm', very very fuzzy
But here is wich I'm doing:
2nd WIP; Left: Progress after draw, and Right: Drawing with a ballpen on Paper.

I'm watching entries with a cartoon style and also like human-bunny, I don't know if I'm in the wrong direction overall with the concept.

wow stridiggio great progress and i rly liked your idea ^_^ but why does the bunny holds the missle and that planet of some sort ?

Blackxedgexkid- great start i rly like those sketches and looking forward to see the progress on this one

WIP #2

will start to do the values on the figure from here (dark to light, the bg will basically stay in this value range with a bit of folds and stuff...)

Also, I will thicken the ink outline a bit more when I am further down the value work.

ACB12: hey nice concept too!..perhaps needs a bit more contrast for the shadows to get a bit of deep,,also tweak a little the perspective ''just a comment ''. well is not a missle, (the angle is wrong also) it will be a propulsor machine (in progress ) that drives the bunny to the moon, launched before one meteor collides with the Earth. This animal won a raffle among all species on Earth and is the only specie (lucky) to continue the successful life in the universe.

Looking forward,,( )

Thank you Rebeccak for your words. You are very kind. I am going to listen to your advice, work in grayscale and put colour later.

Here is my rough sketch. I want my bunny to be almost without fur so working on its skin seems to be funny.

  02 February 2009
Here's my initial version, after some research and playing with the angles some. It's pretty rough at this point, but feedback would be great.

The story:

The hares have been mutated beyond reason, and have destroyed much of the world. One girl has found a rabbit whose blood will allow them to shrink the massive creatures back to normal, if she can get to HQ in time.

Hey everyone, good to see the posts rolling in! Will post individual replies a bit later, my work week just ended and I need me a sandwich!

Keep the work coming!

To learn as I go, I've also been trying lately to do a very rough solid line art over the top of the rough sketch. Then if the lineart makes sense, breaking it down to the simplest ideas, I might be on the right track.

On this one, I need to figure out if the girl should be holding the rabbit with one arm or really grasping it in both.

Little bit of an update - lots of work to do obviously.

Mu: thats a nice progress and a very interesting concept aswell ^_^ and btw will she be wearing cloths or she will be a naked bunny with some cloth items ?

RussellDickerson- thats a rly nice concept and im looking forward to see how yull work this up and i think that in this situation she will be likely to hold it with both of her arms(maybe squeezing it abit ) cuz she will grasp to anything she has cuz shes terriffied of seeing that giant rabbit

stridiggio- thx and i was working on that one since i posted the image and about the perspective ill see what i can do cuz i made a mistake and befor fixing all of the probs on the pic when i had the layers of everything ive changed it to greyscale and ended up with 1 layer which ive worked on .so i wont be going back to befor i made the progress...well ill think of how to work this out
and thats a nice story for the pic too and as when i said comment and critiques are welcomed i ment it so thx again for the comment ^_^
