Peter Rabbit by TixieLix Peter Rabbit by TixieLix
My apologies for the lack of art lately. Things have been a bit stir crazy in my life and I just didn't have the time or energy to pull myself up to draw stuff after each working day :iconlazycryplz: That also made me more miserable since this is one of my few outlets.

Anyhoo, just a quick lil sketch for now in honour of Beatrix Potter. Her stories and art were some of my favourites as a kid and one of the inspirations that got me drawing then :)

The quote and image were referenced from this static.fjcdn.com/pictures/pete… not from the actual book. I just thought it was so hilarious and cute (and also fitting for the situation I am finding myself in currently haha)

Ballpoint pen on scrap paper (again...) Approx 1hr. Photoshopped for brightness/contrast and cropping.

I am so glad I'm not the only one who has nostalgia and memories of them. I feel like...and I feel so old for saying this, that kids these days are just missing out.

true that!  Too many CG cartoons these days and not all of them need to be CG...

This+ Quote and even the mention of that book. =) 
I'm not sure if I can remember all the specifics but was there a movie or cartoon series of some sort based off the books? Watership down or something? 
Again your pen work, CURSE YOU! :happybounce: I am a dummy!  Awesome! 

Slowly you are working your way through all the mammalian animals with ballpoint pen. :P

Yes, there was a cartoon adaptation of the Beatrix Potter books >> www.youtube.com/watch?v=MisrUJ…

Watership Down was a completely different book by another author, but also had anthro rabbits ;)

hehe thanks again - like I've always said, fur is awesome fun to draw with a pen!
