Bunny rabbit! So cute!

I painted this guy in acrylics and then went over him with a felt tip pen to give his fur texture. I think he turned out pretty good, considering he's my 4th rabbit picture ever and I'm not really comfortable with paint, I'm more of a drawer.I  hope you like him!

I also did this yesterday, for everyone wh...

My very first blog entry, yay!

Here is my latest peice, I did him the other night, and I think he has to be my best pencil crayon drawing ever, althought his nostril is still bugging me. He has 14 differant colors in him, including red, orange, yellow, blue, pink, purple and several shades of brown.
