This is the second portrait I made, using Bitstrips (the first was a character named Bone). As with my Superman, the moon prop was a key element in this picture.
I started with Usagi’s head. The face was so important. Building the eyes, which would move the viewer to the whole portrait. Also, giving him the fuzzy look. After all, he is a Rabbit!
After the face was done, I was home free… right! Turns out the ears were a LOT more difficult than I thought. The end result was worth the effort!
Now it got much easier… really! The body went quick, and even though the sword handle was quite detailed, it did not pose much problem in the design.
The end result was more exciting than I had hoped. Usagi looks like a character straight off of Cartoon Network! Now, if only someone would animate this amazing Character…
