Illustration Friday: Swarm


watercolor, 2.5"x3.5" (SOLD)

My first thought for this week's Illustration Friday challenge was bees, as I'm sure a lot of folks do when they think of a swarm. Then I wondered, hmm, I wonder what a "swarm" of rabbits would look like. Terrifying, absolutely terrifying!

Hmmm, does anyone know what a group of rabbits is called?

I think you have a 'bunch of bunnies' there and they are cute, not terrifying at all.

Wonderful! The closer they get the cuter they are!

I learn tricks and techniques. (khm I see, and I can't do, or I forget it, in some minutes. :-P)

Your grass is very beautiful. I have problems grass, hair, fur... Your grass is very colourful, and good.

A group of bunnies is a "warren" I think. I could be wrong. I think that this looks absolutely cute and wonderful but if I saw a huge group of bunnies headed my direction in real life...I'd run and ask questions later...

Fallingladies said...

I love this, yes I thought of bees but stuck with it because I love 'em, but your swarm of rabbits is scarier than bees!

Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! Wonderful style you have. Awesome work.

yikes, those bunnies look intimidating (I think a group of them is either a nest, warren or whole lot of trouble)

I had never seen so many rabbits walking trail! I found her very beautiful design.

Thanks so much everyone! My little buns inspire me to draw them so you might get overwhelmed by rabbit drawings soon! Mahalo for your wonderful comments! You all inspire me to keep drawing! :D

I guess they'd do quick work on trimming one's lawn---fertilizing too! Great idea!

According to wikipedia a group of rabbits is a colony. Super illustration

Somehow cute and frightening at the same time. There's a particular look in their eyes that unnerves me. A great pic.

Rubin Pingk said...

Oh my awesome.

The composition and perspective on this are great.

I hope this gets front page.

Great take on the SWARM theme.

It is terrifying how many rabbits could come of that troop.

Maru said...

More terrifying is that the entire swarm can double in population almost immediately. I hope they're nice bunnies.
