ROTG - Dark pooka by merrypaws ROTG - Dark pooka by merrypaws
Rise of the Guardians hit me like few fandoms have done lately. My bookmark list on AO3 can bear witness to that.
One story I read lately was based on the premiss that instead of destroying the pooka race Pitch Black turned them all into fearlings. (Story here in case someone's curious: [link] ) Also, I ran into some very nice art of Jack Frost and Dark!Bunnymund on Tumblr, and the two together went a long way in inspiring this. (Warning, the image I linked is safe, but there be a lot of NSFW material over yonder)

Because c'mon, a giant bunny that just happens to act more like a slightly confused man-eating tiger? Who wouldn't have fun with that?

Sort-of character design-y thing. I didn't have a reference on Bunnymund on hand, so I just doodled a random pooka and tentatively called him Tarragon. Let's see if it sticks. I also need to add a little more detail to him in the future, the poor thing looks so plain.

Bunny was an actually bunny when he was alive.

I absolutely love how you drew him! Clap It's so cool how you made something that is cute into a carnivorous beast. This is how I would imagine a were-rabbit. Wink/Razz

Nice character, him and my Hyde should hang out some c: Or y'know. Have a scrap. XD
merrypaws Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2013
Oh gosh darn. That's a big compliment coming from you, since your art of Hyde and Jokull was the nearly sole inspiration for my 'Dark Pooka & Lil' Jack'-verse.
Though I might want to skip the scrap part, cause... I have the feeling I wouldn't be getting my Bunny back. Not all of him anyway. >_>

those are some BIG HONKING TEETH !
Illusioninme Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
LOL, great picture I'd love the thought of a monstrous giant bunny. Wonder how he'd react to Bunnymund?
merrypaws Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
I'm pretty sure he might attack Bunny on sight. Defending his territory and all that. Of course, he'd propably get his flully tail handed to him for it, since he'd be working on litle more than instinct, while Bunny has the ability to actually reason and plan ahead.

yeah I guess you're right...still would be an awesome fight!
