Coney McLagomorph

It took 8 or 10 sketches before I got Coney's proportions just right. He kept coming out too thin, or too tall, or too something. I was finally able to wrestle him into a shape I could live with.

Not sure about the white patch on his belly. He looked too plain without it, but something about it's bothering me. Maybe I need to adjust the shape of it.

"What the heck's up with that name?" I hear you asking. Coney is a British word for rabbit, while Lagomorph is any member of the order Lagomorpha, comprising hares and rabbits. So it pretty much means Rabbit Rabbit. There, you learned something today.



Here's the original sketch of Coney. After I doodled this I wondered if it might be too similar to Big Buck Bunny. But then I figured those guys didn't invent giant rabbits, so what the heck. There's room in the world for more than one big bunny.

  1. Your post cracked me up and this guy is wonderful! I love how he dwarfs the carrot. As for his belly, I see the "sketch him" has a belly button, maybe adding it to the final version would make you like it more? Awesome blog!
