An Artist and His Bunny by Altalamatox An Artist and His Bunny by Altalamatox
-------Commission--------------

For one ~vladimirsangel of her Theophilus Amicus Gerhardt Viscero and his loyal companion Giovanni!

Theo is an immaculately stylish hairdresser for the sundry supernatural beings of the inter-dimensional town of Nexus. Giovanni is a giant Flemish house rabbit. Theo is also a two thousand year-old vampire who can split at will into 68 black and white Dutch rabbits, and who as a consequence speaks fluent Bunny, and who prefers the conversation of rabbits to men, who on the whole make him a bit queasy.

Theo is presumably using his vampiric super-strength here to hoist Giovanni with one arm. Google them Flemish house rabbits, they are the size of dogs.

Spent much time sightseeing in the artistically greyscale land of fashion photography before putting Theo together. Not for the first time I've become conscious of my tendency to use eye-screeching saturation in all I paint. D: It was a nice change to do something in rainy-day hues.

Angel makes all the best characters. Go check out her page. (:

I have a Rabbit that looks kind of like that... He's just the ordinary rabbit, about the size of a housecat... Well, a bit larger than that, he's gotten kind of fat since I got him from the petshop, where he used to be little more than a bag of furry skin and bones in comparison... And he has long hair around his head and Throat, and is completely black with a few dark grey streaks in his mane...

He's a hellish little beast, but I rather like his personality. When you hold him, he tries to nest in you(Clawing, attempted digging, biting) When you pet him, he curls downward into the ground or growls at you. When you happen to be working near his cage, he'll poke his head out at you in curiosity. When you put him back in his cage, he'll thump at you in rebellion, you try to grab his food bowl, he'll be where your hand is in half a second flat, and he growls whenever you reach at him in any way... And Once when I had to put his harness on him to let him get his exercise, he Bunny-Norris Kicked me in the face.

He's a bully, he's Evil with those little brown(Almost red) eyes, and his Mane(He's a lionhead rabbit) somehow manages to get in front of his little face, making him seem even more ominous than he really is... I adore this picture, because the rabbit reminds me of my little fatty bastich that I love so much.

That's one awesome bunny. :heart: I saw some monster rabbits at a fair last year; I wonder if they were Flemish house rabbits...

You know I love your art no matter what colors it is. :iconfangirlingplz:

Theo gorgeousness. Love love love. :heart: I said there would be more gushing and here it indeed is. Every detail for him here is perfect, and the soft subdued tones just make it even more of a lovely contrast with the bits of colour you've picked out on that screaming purple Ice Watch and the pinks in Giovanni's ears and even the hint of colour in Theo's own natural pallor.

Plus I believe I may have mentioned the super-fantastic lighting effects and the deceptively simple beauty of the way he's holding his scissors.

This is getting printed and framed and going on my wall of yay.

Ooh, you did a lovely job on the rainy day hues, it's odd to see something like this in your gallery when it's so fraught with color. It's actually really refreshing, though, you did a wonderful job! And that bunny, OHLORDIWANNATOUCHITANDHOLDITANDSNUGGLEIT.
