Comic book work

Whelp, I just got done doing some work for a comic book called Brawn, and it was a pretty cool experience actually working with someone else's idea. Here's a gif showing steps in the process.

My favorite step here was when my client told me that the bunny was too fluffy. It took a bit of creativity to figure out how to make a furry animal more mangy, so in searching for photoreference, I was immediately reminded of Sam, World's Ugliest Dog.

For those of you not in the know, Sam was a purebreed Chinese Crested, a breed of dog that has the distinction of having the only ugly puppies known to mankind.

Anyway, I copypasted the skin texture of the chinese crested seen below underneath the bunny's fur layer, resulting a decidedly less fluffy bunny.
