Minion number four, in progress.
SS Firm/Original blend over a wire, foil, mesh, and Apoxie clay armature.
I’m nearly done with this one, and then then I’ve got just one more minion to go after that.

Here’s another version of that drawing I posted yesterday, this time with post-processing that is less ham-fisted (though I do like the other version too).
Snapseed’s so addictive that sometimes I get a wee bit carried away (but I bet more than a few of you fine people out there had already noticed that).
Pentel brushpen and white-out on toned paper. Just an experiment that proved to be pretty fun. I lovelovelove my brushpen; before I bought it, I’d never really used one, and was very pleasantly surprised. I’m planning on using it for the preliminary gesture drawings and more refined concept sketches that are crucial to planning armatures.
Rabbit minion number four WIP photos will be coming soon!

An experiment in using my new toned sketchbook, my even newer brush pen, and some white-out.
Needless to say, this weird fellow was really fun to draw.

Minion number three is done, now I’ve only got two to go!
Spent a little more time on this one because of where he’ll be placed in the final piece, which one of the focal points of the piece. He is based on a character from Watership Down, though his damaged ear is my own addition.

Rabbit minion number three!
Who else is a member of the Black Rabbit’s Owsla? I bet some of you fine folks out there in Tumblr land can guess who this is! :) (By the way, yes, homemadehorrors, you’re right, the rabbit with tattered ears is indeed an homage to Blackavar!)
Anyone have suggestions for more Owsla members? I only have two rabbits left, and I can’t promise I’ll use every suggestion for this project, but this is definitely not the last time I deal with this subject

I still have a ways to go on this little fellah, but after him, I’ll be over halfway done with the five minions. Then it’s back to the rocky base, which is about 75% sculpted.

Black Rabbit minion number three, in progress. This is only the second day of work on this one, so he’s still looking pretty rough, but I like him so far.

Minion number two is curing in the oven as I type this! Two down, three to go. I decided to give this one tattered ears, as though he got into a scuffle (with another rabbit? With a predator of some sort?) at some point.

Rabbit Minion number two, in progress. Still needs a lot more sculpting and refining, but I figured he was presentable enough for some WIP snapshots.

Rabbit minion. All done with sculpting this little dude, now it’s time for me to tackle the other four minions!
I definitely learned a ton about Lagomorph anatomy in sculpting this, so the other four should go a bit faster.
5” inches tall! SS original and firm, over a wire mesh and Apoxie clay armature.

Just a tiny update of the work I did on the minion today, plus more Snapseed post processing fun!
