Dragglerabbit by ursulav Dragglerabbit by ursulav
A native of scrub deserts and chapparal, the dragglerabbit is a lanky, neurotic, twitchy-footed creature, loosely related to jackrabbits (although neither are particularly enthusiastic about claiming the relationship.) Hunted nearly to extinction for their snazzy aviator goggles, surviving dragglerabbits are wary to the point of paranoia, and will move in the middle of the night without telling anyone, approximately once a week, to throw off pursuit. Even something as innocent as junk mail addressed to "Occupant" can send the dragglerabbit running for the hills until the heat is off.

They graze primarily on the fleshy pads of the prickly pear cactus, which they don't enjoy, but which they don't think anybody is likely to poison. During the breeding season, like March hares, dragglerabbits become insanely bold, which for them means staying for several days in the same burrow and not checking the other rabbits for alien implants. Courtship involves spinning elaborate conspiracy theories, with which to impress the opposite sex--those integrating the Rosicruicians, beef hormones, and the Trilateral Commission are especially prized. After a few weeks, however, natural patterns re-exert themselves, and the dragglerabbits seperate before their partners can sell them out to the enemy.

It reminds me of the things they ride in the Dark Crystal. I don't remember what they're call, but they always looked like rabbit-like creatures to me because of their portruding bones from their legs.

Wonderful.
My only question is - however did he allow anyone to get close enough to him to put those rings through his ears?
Perhaps it was a March act of rashness.

Know what? It DOES look like Fritz's anarchic rabbit a little. But this dragglerabbit is cooler, so cute and droopy-looking.

This has so much personality, I love it... ya know who he reminds me of though? There's an anarchist rabbit in the ol 70's cartoon Fritz the Cat who looks oddly similar too..." ha ha ha.... " (you kinda have to see the movie for the laughter to be funny, but take my word for it, your rabbit is cooler :P)

The rabbit's frighteningly forlorn looking, but the cactus looks like Snorks. Or reminds me of Snorks, anyhow. *thumbs up* nice bunny.

ROFL Ohh *wipes tears away* I just love that description of these crazy, paranoid rabbits! You'd think the poor dears would just stop wearing the goggles that they're so hunted for... Great shading and I love the scraggly, droopy mournful look. I do wonder if it isn't rather uncomfortable to sit on a prickly pear? O.o

your art is just so insanely cute , i love it. i envy your imigination and adore the fact that you actualy put some story to most of your pictures. i see so many wonderfull drawings with no more comments than "meh" under them , i lose intrest. i have you on my watch list, and i would fave every thing you do but i think that would just cause a bit of lag on my part... but know that i love them all , especially your small animals such as this wonderfull rabbit.

He must have a very tough hide in the rear area. Because that to me looks painful. But then again I don't suppose anyone would be likely to follow him up there! :lol: You did a great job on this! :heart:

Apparently, this Dragglerabbit wasn't too concerned that the person piercing his ear might try to gouge his eyes out in the process. Or maybe he did it himself? ^__^
