Jackalope

For my project I chose The Jackalope—a mythical rabbit with antlers. In this world of ups and downs…so nice to know there are jackalopes around, you know.

Research

I spent some time googling pictures of jackrabbits, deer and jackalope head mounts (creepy). I also looked into jackalope tattoes and Native American ornaments for inspiration.

Sketch

Here's the initial sketch. I wanted my jackalope to look like neither a cute little bunny, nor a horrible bloodthirsty beast. I couldn't come up with many ornaments and patterns and decided to do it later, on the computer.

Final Illustration

This is what I ended up with. I'm still not very satisfied with the ornaments, because initially I wanted the picture to be more decorative.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome. Or tell me a story about a jackalope. Do you have them where you live?
