Yay! We have a piece of Velvy fan art that I found notified in my DeviantArt account. DSHigsby sent us this little gem and this one! So cute!! It is up in the Fan Art Gallery as well. Check out DSHigsby’s other DeviantArt stuff, too!
This was an idea I came up with a few weeks ago. Concluding Velvy’s conversation with the mirror, I wanted to end on something that shows more of the depth of the comic. I was trying to figure out how to draw a realistic velveteen rabbit for Velvy to get the “breaking the fourth wall” effect when I realized just a few hours ago I could take a picture of my ideal velveteen rabbit and photoshop it into a true “real” Velvy. Voila! To give credit where due:
Link to actual velveteen rabbit photo used – Yes, I used the blue design and photoshopped him pink ;P.
The bubbles were downloadable and the velveteen rabbit was on at etsy store. I didn’t have time to contact the woman who makes the plushies for the use of the pic but I might just do that now, and to commission a Velvy! I believe her etsy name was Auntie Jill. Anyway, indiscriminate use of public pics aside, I hope you enjoy the strip! I only take credit for the photoshopping and the line art! Vector and digital graphics were unfortunately harmed in the making of this comic. Viewer discretion is advised.
Well, I could not finish the strip for Thursday but I thought I should at least post the sketch so far. Honestly, I haven’t decided the dialogue yet. Likely, there will be an Easter pic for Monday to help me catch up. For those who have seen too much Velvy lately, I promise he won’t be in this one. I know, he’s the obvious choice. I’ll let him do it next year. No rotten Easter eggs this year, though I was tempted to do a Humpty/Jesus holiday strip, as both are kinda undead ;) No offense intended. I watch the show “Bones” and the lead character made mention of Jesus being undead. I just thought that was the greatest quote on television in over 30 years! But I have another plan for the Easter comic this year;)
