This is a redesign of my first rabbit head model (Rabbit Head v1). The first version looked fine, but the design wasn't very clean, and required many approximate, high stress folds after collapsing the base to form the big bow. The new version uses an entirely new base that allows the eyes to be spaced farther apart and the bow to be a different color from the face. Overall, I think this new version has better proportions and is a lot cuter.
As for the design process, I used the same bow design as the one from Short-Haired Person (Face) v2. The bow (which uses a bird base) was grafted onto a larger bird base. I thought that a bird base (which has 4 long flaps) would be the most appropriate for a basic rabbit face. One flap can form face details, and two flaps can form two long ears. I used additional flaps resulting from the grafting to form the large eyes.
