A colored sketch commission for ironcrux ([link]
) on FA, who was so amazing to let me do anything with his grey hare character <3
As an artist who is mainly focused on history of Napoleonic wars, I went for Retread from Moscow. A French hare hiding from Russian cossack bear in an abadoned cottage somewhere in woods. Prepared to defend himself with a dragoon carbine he found on his way.
It was unusual to draw animals instead of humans in such theme but I enjoyed it, since animals are much more easier to draw than humans (at least for me) and bring the picture more contrast from physiognomy to actual symbolistic features.
I hope you understand and this will not drive you away from my art. I thought more of a classic fables from children books than furry when I was drawing this.(Also damn I want snow!)Tools:
