Recent Drawings: Alice in Wonderland

An example of what I think is "a really cool Alice in Wonderland drawing"

Hi there! It's been a while... I finally got a chance to scan some of my most recent works and I'm pretty excited about this one in particular.

For some reason I've become a bit obsessed with Alice in Wonderland lately. Not exactly the Disney version but just the concept in general. So one day I decided to do "a really cool Alice in Wonderland drawing" (yes, that's how I said it in my head).

The unfinished "First Try"

So I begun drawing what I thought was a decent job, but a prank by my co-workers that involved doodles on the work in progress disencouraged my ability to continue (the unfinished work is on the left). So after getting over it I started anew and came up with what you can see below.

As you can tell, I did a bit of redesigning to the characters. I wanted Mad Hatter to look mad, but not exactly "unatractive". In the case of Alice, I aged her a bit but hopefully she can still be considered a child. Her outfit was modernized a bit. The mushrooms, well that's just an inside joke with me because I HATE mushrooms, drawing so many of them just made me sick. Hehe...

Please tell me what you think? Usually I get a lot of comments about how it should be colored; I'll say it now, I don't know how to color. I wish I did, but since I can't anyone is free to give it a go.

Also, adding to the Wonderland craze I made another drawing of Alice called "Through the Looking Glass". Check it out here.

Geo did you intentionally make your Mad Hatter look like Matt Smith wearing Patrick Troughton's Doctor's outfit? Any way cool art!

Those look really good. You could make a little comic.

@awesam: Thanks! I would love to do comics. I just need the time to do it.

@damswedon: Just googled it ... Wow! I totally didn't realize I drew Matt Smith's look-a-like! That's pretty awesome.

Nice of your co-workers to do that...= P

Hmmm...I don`t think he looks mad. Quirky? Yes.

Good one.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: You have no idea how mad I was when they did that. You can't see it on the one I posted because I did my best in erasing it but it was bad...

I can work with quirky...

@sora_thekey:

I know what you mean.

Good. Because I hear that a guy named quirky will be working with you. But beware...he`s not quirky at all. Very serious dude, actually.

I adore all things Alice in Wonderland related -- and these are great. I like having the Mad Hatter be somewhat younger than he is usually depicted (he looks that way to me in your drawings) and not for anything, I really like your facial expressions (this includes your other drawings in your art thread).

Hopefully you will branch into colouring though -- I think you would be great at it.

@lykopis: I would love to do that, but I have no time to dedicate it to learning how to color. I really really really should! Thanks for the compliments though.
