The evolution of Bugs Bunny

I saw this online and thought I’d save it for a rainy day.
I thought it worth sharing.

Earlier we looked at some spectacular Daffy Duck skeletons. (BTW, I note the included links have largely evaporated). The artist is Hyungkoo Lee.

But we still can link
to other artists who have done similar studies, like Michael Paulus.
