Illustration Friday - Tension

I've been trying out sort of a different style lately - here's my first completely digital painting in photoshop. Its been a lot of fun this week finally learning to use my wacom tablet, so I think I'll be working this way for a while. 

Meet Albert the giant bunny -- he's just trying to find his place in this world and someone who will finally accept him! I hope to make this big guy part of a series, so I'll start the next one soon.

Illustration Friday - Talent

Decided on submitting this to Illustration Friday this week, the subject is talent - so I thought it would fit well with the topic.

A new girlfriend for Ben

I've never talked about him here on my blog but Ben is my 3 year old mini-lop that I love to pieces. He has been the subject of some of my drawings/paintings a few times!

Well, I've been thinking about getting him a partner for sometime now and I finally followed through with it after visiting the Rabbit House Society's local shelter. We tried a few different buns but he seemed to favor this gal the most - so that's who we went home with! Her name is Esther and she's a 3 year old English Spot with a really sad back story (she had a litter at only 4 months old and her previous owners tried to drown them all to get rid of them). She's pretty much lived at the shelter all of her life - so I'm really excited to give her a good home. Here's them posing for their first picture.

Baby New Year

Hope everyone had a happy and safe holidays. My new years resolution is to draw less bunnies - as I draw far to many of them. Here's my first drawing of the new year - as you can see I'm off to a good start already! Hm, must find another resolution.
