From Doodle to Drawing - Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER! I hope that by now you all have jellybeans spilling out of your eyeballs. If not, locate the nearest vehicle and get to the store. What you are waiting for? There is discount candy to be had, GET ON IT!

There, now that I've gotten that very important public service announcement out of the way, let's get to the point of this post. Have you ever sketched something and liked it so much that you had to take it to the next level? Sometimes a doodle can turn into a lot more than originally anticipated.

The other day I was messing around in Flash for the sake of practice. I ended up just doodling a few things, playing with layers and messing with line weights, but one of my early doodles stuck with me for some reason.

The sketch is very crude and I never intended for it to be anything but a doodle that never saw the light of day after I closed out of Flash. But... by the time I was done, I kind of liked the pose. I saved the little bun, and a few days later I re-sketched it. This is what I ended up with:

Voilà! A fully-fledged, sickeningly adorable rabbit, just in time for Easter.
The moral of the story is that at times it can prove beneficial to keep all of your sketches. One day you might just look at them and find inspiration where you didn't see it before.
