Someday I may pull this up and wonder what the hell I was thinking, but for now we'll call it what it is, one of the best pictures I have ever done. Period.
And my first picture of 2013! Ahaha Happy New Year people!
So these are Alice Little and Hatter Maddigan, versions of the classic Alice and Mad Hatter created by my twin sister ~gigglemeister
and I. One of the many down sides to Maddigan's maddnes is that it makes it all but impossible to tell when he's joking or not...another being that its within the realms of possibility that he may forget that he's only joking. If he is
joking, anyway XD
When I finished the lineart for this I asked my sis if I should ink it and color it traditionally, or if I should do it digitally, she replied "Whatever you want" Which was not REMOTELY helpful, so what she did was hold up her fists and say pick one, I picked digital, and I'm really glad I did because this came out really awesome.
Now as you can tell by the lineart Maddigan wasn't sitting in a chair originally, my idea was to have him setting up his tea in the middle of the woods using a rock as a chair, seeing as one of his many quirks is his absolute need to have tea at exactly six'o'clock no matter where he is. But when I had finished coloring him I decided he needed to be inside.
And a fireside tea party with a bite-size Alice just seems really cozy doesn't it?
Happy New Year!
