Here's the "dog":

Step 1: The Bunny

His personality is in his ears, and in his hop.

Step 2: The BAT

BATS BATS BATS BATS BATS BATS BATS BATS!

BATS!

    Whoa I have that book that the image came from its called "Hand Shadows to be thrown upon the wall" by Henry Bursill. The hardest one for me has been the scared man, some of the shadows I still cant do. btw thats a cool bunny I've never seen it done that way.

    Well the timer on my camera is only giving me ten seconds, this was taken with a remote and my toe. It's my attempt at the fright expression, it kinda looks like an old codger too. lol
