Long Patrol Recruit by KaiserFlames Long Patrol Recruit by KaiserFlames
xD More boredom at school and more doodles turned good. I felt like drawing one of those humorous Long Patrol hares this time, however, and this is was happened. I had to erase his entire face, though, because I didn't have a reference when I started drawing him. He looked more like a rabbit than a hare and we just can't have that, now can we?

Anyway! This jolly ol' recruit is having a good time belting out a nice marching song.

.5 mm mechanical pencil on drawing paper.

Basil? Or just a generic Hare?

Just an unnamed hare! Probably highly inspired by Basil, though.

What's the difference between a rabbit and a hare?

hares are bigger, generally, with more lanky bodies. they're much faster and much angrier, generally, too.

I absolutely loved those books when I was a kid, and Long Patrol was my favorite one. Well, that and The Bellmaker, but you know. Hares in that series were by far the greatest species, even if they were competing with moles for comic relief!

Brilliant pencil work, by the way, I would die long before I could ever do something so detailed with a mechanical pencil.

Looks great the way you've done that hare, with the shading and fur and everything.
I love his expression and pose! Looks like he's really dancing about. Typical recruit - young and eager! :aww:

You should seriously submit some of your artwork to be published in the series. It is much better than the artwork in the actual books.

No, but it's a hare like him. And the cartoon was Redwall and it was based off a great number of books. n.n
