Bunnies are my kryptonite. Adorable execution and a hideously adorable concept. So good!

He's not supposed to be anyone in particular. The idea I had was sort of an eastern fantasy meets western fantasy. In western style fantasy rpg, there's usually a guy who is the 'king' or 'lord' that everyone's serving. Even at places like ren faires, there's a guy who is the king. So that was sort of the idea here. ^_^. In hindsight I might should have made him a knight ^^;. I just always think of the really loud, boisterous kings from larping, heh.

Thanks so much for the votes and support!

I totally thought this was a Ramyb from the thumb.

I've no idea why these chibi animal designs dominate derbies so hard...maybe because the derby voters are predominantly middle-aged women? That's the only thing that would make sense.

I can honestly say that I have seen TONS of guys wearing cute animal designs that have printed on Woot. Perhaps they're just more popular than you think?

Yup. I rarely see girls wearing any Woot bunny shirts. It's often college aged guys. Most of the Woot shirts I see on girls are the more art-heavy designs. Trees. Girls love trees! Boys love bunnies? The universe is a mysterious place.

As for the design of the bunnies themselves, I was going for a simple, readable look for them without being too close to Ramy's art. Sometimes I feel a simpler character is necessary if you're trying to show a joke or concept clearly. It was my way of making the bunnies sort of general while still being cute or appealing to people. Sometimes I make my characters too cracky and it turns people off. ^^;

Love, love, love this shirt except for the shirt color kelly green. It's a tough color for most people to wear.

I hear you. Not everyone can do the green tees . This is actually the grass green though, which is easier to wear than the kelly green. That one is pretty vibrant. I think I only have one kelly green tee, from one of my first derbies!

I love the green! More green,less ashtray gray.
and as a "middle aged woman" I hardly ever wear adorable bunnies, but I will wear these!!!

I like the shirt so much more after the explanation- I thought it was all a FF thing that I didn't understand, but I am all over a east vs west RPG battle :-)

If I got this, I would have to sharpie in bon-bons on their heads. Then they would look like the bunny-moogles from Final Fantasy XII. :D

Thanks Rads, but I think I subbed far too late for that ^^;. If there's any chance, maybe 3rd, but I was pretty late. If not, the bunnies shall role play in the forest of my hard drive forever! Huzzah!

i dunno. You shot up pretty darn quick. And from the comments, people seemed to really dig it. If it doesn't print it was definitely the derby favorite.
Tonight will tell... Best of luck!

Bunnies are Pagan-symbolic for procreation.
College guys have sex on the brain 24/7.
It all makes perfect sense, while being totally sad at the same time.
