Hey there Hoppereenos. Figured it was bout time again for me to do another one of my lil creations on my town. This one was really spur of the moment. No rhyme or reason or method at all. So hang tight as we go on a crazy ride through my brain as I make another 2D creation.
It was the wee hours of the morning and I hadn’t slept much in days. I knew the files were there for a new update, just not sure the time they would hit our games, so I waited. Grew very tired and bored at doing the same old tasks over and over.
It got to the point I thought it would be fun to do something creative. My redesign had burnt me out. Out of ideas for the moment, so nothing creative there at least. Then it hit me. I was staring at my lil soft velveteen like fluffy bunny sitting by the side of my bed. I NEEDED A BUNNY IN MY BUNNY TOWN!! Not just silly green hedges. There is only so much you can do with those. I wanted something…BIGGER. So I set out on a task to make me a Bunny.
I started out using the Snapdragons to lay out a basic Bunny image as it was just all in my head. Essentially a very rough outline of where I wanted to place my Bunny in my artist area.
Kinda looked a lil silly, but no worries. I create as I go. Now I pondered quite sometime at just what color I wanted to make my Bunny. Pink, Black, Red…a lot of different color options. I settled on white as it was the color of my soft fuzzy Bunny by my bed. But now the issue I run into in wanting to make something fun in my town…the color palette is VERY limited. Not too many options. So I went with the only white item I have found that kinda works best in the art I have made in the past. The Carved Ice Sculptures. (See Jason’s mask in my Freddie n Jason 2D.) So I began to fill up the Bunny with white.
I also decided to use the Garbage Bins to make a cute lil pink nose on my Bunny. I left an open area on the belly for a second color. I filled and filled and filled….then when I had a good coverage of white, I once again used the Garbage Bins to fill in the middles with pink. (I also started removing the outline of Snapdragons I made as I went. No need for them after I started filling.)
As I continued to fill, I kept getting those lovely lil warning messages I have become so familiar with. (They keep appearing every 150 items after 4500.) It’s not my fault I want to use a lot of stuff to make my town look cool. I don’t do basic. So I did what I always do and ignored it. Continuing to fill my Bunny with both pink and white until I felt it looked good.
I wasn’t done yet though. It looked so plain and alone. So I figured with Easter around the corner, why not give my Bunny a basket. So I went to my inventory of Boardwalk Fences and started creating the structure of a basket. Then I decided you can’t have a basket without some kind of grass inside, so I used the Grassy Shrubs to add a lil grass in the Bunny’s Basket.
It still seemed to be missing something. I tried to make the Bunny a poofy tail. It just looked all wrong. So instead, continuing to use the Carved Ice Sculptures, I started to turn the weird looking tail into one arm. Then I added another, trying to make it look like the Bunny was holding the basket.
Much better. At this time the New Level Update hit and I stopped with my design to focus on more important things. Then early Monday morning, lack of sleep again, I decided it was time to try and finish up a lil more on my Bunny. I wanted some eggs in the basket. Give it even MORE of an Easter kinda feeling. This is where I got annoyed. Again I wanted more bright and vibrant colors to pick from, but limited on what was available. So I just started playing around with anything I could think of. I made eggs out of Broken Down Washers, Snapdragons, Lawn Chairs, Flower Planter, Newspaper Dispensers, and Garbage Bins. I also decided to carry the grass in the basket all the way across.
Here is how my lil Fluffy Bunny looks like in the big picture.
Now here is where YOU the readers come in. I would like for YOU to help me out to finish up this project. Give me some suggestions of what else I should add to the design. Words? Another Bunny? Anything you can think of. Lastly, I need a name for my lil Bunny. So now it is YOUR turn to sound off in the comments below. Lemme know what you think? (I also want to see some suggestions for my next 2D. I love creating for YOU.)
Until The Next Mind Meld….
