velveteen rabbit by erebun velveteen rabbit by erebun
Of what use was it to be loved and lose one's beauty and become Real if it all ended like this? And a tear, a real tear, trickled down his little shabby velvet nose and fell to the ground.

my take on this wonderful inspiring story /sobs [link]
it looks nothing like it but whatever >w>
and I have a thing for ribs and spine lately harhar

While the story leaves you crying, this leaves you with an entire different story; or is that so? If it were to end like this, what use would it be to become Real? I think this piece shares the same story, albeit darkly. As the tear is shed, we learn his story." (Also suggested by `budgie) ( Suggested by rioIu and Featured by Atramina )

Why are some people so talented? Because they worked hard at it.
Why are you so talented?

Oh my gourd! I love this! >///< It's so cool. ^^

I love how the "lined paper" background gives this a "sketch-y" feel and, I think, manages to accentuate all of the tiny details in the picture itself.

I remember being enchanted by that story as a kid, because it had that sad, real-life element that set it apart from the usual childhood tales. I LOVE THIS - especially the green of the leaves and the detail of the flowers in the background, not to mention the looseleaf paper pattern.

sejkat Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011   General Artist
ahhh, one of my most favorite childhood stories c: one thing i've noticed about making rabbits or bunnies more human is that we always put them in a suit or something old-fashion high-class...

what's even more interesting about this is that if a person in a upper-class style suit wore a mask resembling a rabbit/bunny's face, it's horrific or the person is most likely a killer in disguise...

sorry. it's a Sunday and for some reason my mind likes to analyze things like this piece by piece. :iconoelplz:

I loved this story as a child, especially since my favorite toy that i slept with into my teens was a rabbit. I love your spin on it, and I've always seen it this way too. I always treated my toys with an animistic sense of respect, like they were alive. To this day I look at my old stuffed rabbit companion who now reigns from atop my TV, and feel a twinge of regret and sadness that we will never have what we had in my childhood again. And even though I'm grown now and know he's nothing but cloth and stuffing, I still sometimes think he looks a little sadder than he used to. The stitched-on smile is now covered by flattened fur, and all the pink fuzz on his nose has completely rubbed off, just like the rabbit in the story I used to read with him sitting complacently in my lap.
