And here's the group banner!

This is not the full size. Whoever edits the banner can PM me for the full size.



Sadly, due to the size, Runt, Fireweed, Yarrow, Waterhawk, and Dreamer couldn't make it into the photo, but I made so everyone had a least one character in it.

From left to right: Arvens, Gooseberry, Cayenne, Arrow, Sage, Dash, Rowan, Sharp-Marram, and Fiver in top.

Also, the picture isn't exactly 800x225, so if it needs to be corrected, let me know.

Very very cool. Now the next question....how'd you manage to draw all that so fast?  I didn't expect to see this for a week based on some of the comments it would take a long time. :)

The only thing I had to do was center align the picture because it actually is smaller than the previous banner.  Unless you want to make it bigger to go right to the edges of the border, it'll be fine the way it is.  Also, something else I noticed....the whole theme is dreary because well, Watership Down isn't a happy place....any way the text could be less...heavenly?  :yes

On a side note, I thought a different rabbit was Arvens at first.  Then I read the description and realized where he was.  Pretty sad when you can't recognize the character you created. :p

Like a said before, since I'm very busy with another drawing at the moment, I didn't exactly draw them myself. Since I'm watching the series on YT, I took screenshots of poses that I thought were fitting and just colored their fur over, then pasted them into the picture. (: If I drew them all myself, it probably would of taken over a week.

And since it seems there needs to be some editing done, I think I will change the size to fit, but it might become a tiny bit blurry. I agree with you, I'll change the text to make it less happy while I'm at it. And I don't know if you can see it, but Arvens does have his red feather, it's under his ear. If you want it to be more distinct, I can easily draw it tied to his ear of you like.

Yeah, I know, I wish I could of added all the rabbits, but it would of looked like an overcrowded mess, or a bunch of tiny miget rabbits.

I thought it looked blurred.  Let me help you out with this because I own the entire series on DVD.  Give me a PM and let me know which characters are whom, and I'll try and get you some better source material to work with. :)

While we are working on a new banner, I'm going to put my old one back up until the new one is ready.  Together we can make this a lot better just by using a better video source than youtube.

Just to give an update, I got Jacob all dvd quality screenshots on which to base the banner.  Should be quite awesome when completed. :)
