Sketching animal faces: bunny

For today’s animal face sketch I chose a bunny because I wanted to practice their large ears and eye shape that’s very different from a cat or dog. Plus they’re just adorable.

I approached suggesting fur and shadow in the same way as yesterday’s cat, but it wasn’t quite working as well. The loopy squiggles weren’t consistent with the fur on the bunny, so I erased many of them and went for shorter and straighter lines instead. I also erased out most of the initial sketch lines of the contour — they were really fighting with the looser fur marks.
