Bunny mark

Bunnies are my favorite animal, so naturally I have chosen to do a bunny. 

I narrowed it down to these 3 photos, but knew I should take George's advice and keep it as a simple as possible, so I went with the straight-on side view. (I still think it would be really fun to make an Oolong mark)

Here are my sketches so far, in chronological order. As you can see, my 5-y-o stepson made a copy of my third page, then absconded with the original. Not the color scheme I would have chosen, but I appreciate the input.

Thankfully, I had zeroed in on the top-middle image.

Although I plan to alter the hind leg to make it simpler. 

It's been awhile since I've drawn in Illustrator, so it's been going to be a little while before I'm up to speed, but I have been working on an Illustrator Basics skillshare at the same time and am enjoying the process.

Making progress with Illustrator! I feel like I learned more about the awesomeness of hotkeys from the Ins and Outs of Illustrator course, and more about manipulating curves from watching George trace the fox, than I did in a whole semester-long course a few years ago (or maybe I just forgot everything and this was a good refresher...)

Here's my bun so far, after working with the pen tool. I'm trying to decide how to tackle the other ear and the swoop on the chest and still keep it very minimalistic.

Here is a filled-in version with second ear, tail, and chest swoop:

And that same version with the tail and second ear in the main color, and the eye and chest swoop as negative space:

I would love feedback re: which version you prefer and what I should change or focus on at this point.

This is my first time doing a project like this, so I'm pretty please with the results so far. I'm nervous/excited about gridding & hoping I have a chance to get it done by Thursday!
