Rise of the Guardians Release Challenge | Day 3 - Bunnymund
Here’s a character I wasn’t expecting to like as much as I did until after reading the book he first appears in. And as much as I like the book design, I can totally see why it was simplified for the movie. Writing about a 6-foot tall bipedal rabbit that can also move quickly and fight while wearing a heavy robe is a lot easier than figuring out how to animate the same character for approx. 90 minutes and not have it look strange. Plus movie-Bunnymund has floral designs in his fur, how is that not cool?
Drawings by William Joyce, Jayee Borcar, Felix Yoon, Patrick Hanenberger, and Tim Lamb.
