I picked Beatrix Potter for this project. I decided to do two illustrations in her style. One being more realistic since she was very interested in drawing from observation and scientific illustrations. The second being in her more well-known style à la Peter Rabbit.
Like Beatrix, I used real models and sketched from life. The first bunny is my dwarf rabbit Gimli, and the second is my sister's rabbit, Quicksilver. I drew sketches of both of them while home over Fall break.
