Alice in Wonderland: Alice is OLD.Trapped in Wonderland,not able to get out,surviving on Mad Tea Party Food-scraps and cold tea,Alice can eat or drink something to make her big or little,but cannot find anything to eat,to make her YOUNG again.She's wasted her entire life, among the wierdness,not able to get home,and now stuck on Wonderland Medicare,(which is as worthless as usual kind.)Arthritus, osteoporotis,bad eyesight,sinus trouble, sore feet,swelled legs,and discomfort in the cold climate. So much for getting lost in life.

"This is not supposed to be happening to me,"she thinks.(Which is exactly what everyone else in life is thinking.)
sankyu 2006/11/21 - 14:55:47
And yet no matter what Alice thinks, she did some wonderful things in her life.. it was worth every moment.
mika 2006/12/1 - 11:6:36
Lol.....It's nice seeing someone actually doing a story behind each pic instead of the usual 'I'm bored' and 'It's crap' comments we get a lot of *checks own pics* nah I don't think I have.....;P
clua 2006/12/1 - 14:46:39
XD--haha this is good!!
you sure have a lot of imagination!

"Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

Yeah, yeah, it's not from 'Alice and Wonderland', it's from 'Through the Looking-Glass' but that's close enough right? I couldn't pass up this opportunity to show off my Lewis Carroll inspired screen name.
mika 2006/11/14 - 9:36:45
.....and here's me thinking it was from the ZX81/Commodore 64 game 'Psyclapse and Bandersnatch'....lol.
But now we know and your pic warrants further investigation of said Bandersnatch...:)
bandersnatchsm 2006/11/14 - 10:8:40
Actually, I have no idea what a bandersnatch looks like... I don't think anybody does! I just used a dog and a juvenile wood stork as references. I have little to no real imagination.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/21 - 9:47:24
Very good movement and style.Good painting.
lorelai 2006/12/7 - 9:48:51
Wow. Never seen a visual for this particular poem!! =D Really great!

Alice in Wonderland----Alice has grown very big,in the White Rabbit's house,in his room,so big her elbow is blocking the door,and her leg is stuck up the chimney,and her arm has to be put out the window;the White Rabbit tries to climb in the window,and she makes a "snatch"motion with her hand,trying to catch him, or bat him,breaking the glass,and she hears "a little shriek,and a fall,and a crash of broken glass, from which she concluded that it was just possible it had fallen into a cucumber frame,or something of the sort."(The rabbit.)They try to break into the house,and Alice puts up a "big" defense. Very funny. This is a crude drawing, I wanted it to be much neater,cleaner,but it was so hard to "intimate" the outside,the window,the rabbit,and also alice inside,with her leg stuck up the chimney, crammed into the room. Oh, well,I've had the flu(exscuse) and I labored on this too much. Porbably why; did it over too much. nuts. It was fun, doing the silly rabbit. hee hee. OOPs, did she break the glass of the window,or just the rabbit broke the glass of the cucumber frame.???Too complicated; next time, do the mouse,and Alice,drowning in Alice's self-made pool of tears. ha .This is a fun theme.Will someone do that wierd creature, that recites the long poem, the depressed one,that cries all the time??
mika 2006/11/12 - 2:3:26
lol....that rabbits got a fight on his hands if he wants Alice out of his house, I like the way the house and Alice are sorta merged together, I reckon this would definately be a hard drawing to do......and you did an excellent job...:)

pyro_77 2006/11/7 - 18:18:16
Look who's back from the dead. yea i haven't been here in a while, i missed it. The theme i think drew me back.

As you can see... i hope... that this is the queen of hearts, not many people seem to have used her yet so i thought i'd have at it. I thought i'd be a bit more rusty than this, having not been here..lol, but i guess i got the hang of the tools again fairly quickly. yay.

i like her crown..any C&C always welcome.

dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/8 - 0:58:16
Great, I love your version of her; very effective.
mika 2006/11/12 - 1:59:1
I can sense the homicidal maniac in this one, just like she is in the books, I'd be off running before she got her famous catchphrase out....;)
pyro_77 2006/11/12 - 12:39:12
Thank you guys!

golden 2006/10/20 - 12:32:39
HAHAHA yes I'm aware of the fact that this picture if somewhat screwed up. BUT I've had some major irritating tests lately and now that they're done, I just had to draw something. Even if it's a seriously deformed Alice who looks like she was on crack.
Lewis Caroll would've been proud XD I'll do a better one some day, I promise.
surreal 2006/10/20 - 14:2:49
Ohmygawd! It's Alice! Yay! This picture is excellent! I love how it's so smooth and clean, and I adore the cards. More, pleaseeeeee.
elolinon 2006/10/21 - 3:2:10
Nice one :D
I love the shading and her expression ^^
Actually, I have'nt read Alice in wonderland, neither watched the movie :P
Fun to see you're experimenting with tecniques :)
lorelai 2006/10/23 - 10:36:37
........ I just can't get over how great your sense of volume is. It looks almost like a 3D model.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/8 - 0:59:6
Yes, it does have great volume,and fullness. Clean, sharp, good expression on Alice.
mika 2006/11/12 - 1:54:47
I can almost see this in 3D -the volume is that good!, the hair and outfit are spot on too......:)

and then she started growing
kelli 2006/10/18 - 7:56:0
Oh wow! I love it. Drawing the motion of growing would be very difficult for me, but you did it no problem. Kudos! And I love the painterly look this has. I can just picture it in a children's book. Also, I love how you colored her legs. =)

lorelai 2006/10/23 - 10:37:17
Gosh this theme must be magical! every single oekaki is Hall of Fame worthy!!! This has such wonderful COLORS and the exaggeration is so .. WOW!
gingerbread_girl 2006/11/6 - 14:49:21
Wow...I'm impressed! You make this look like it were done with traditional media! I love the painted texture you were able to incorporate.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/8 - 1:0:44
Stretch!!!You really got the "motion" and movement of her growing!!Beautiful, too,and wonderful paint style. Nice.
mika 2006/11/12 - 1:51:5
Wonderful pic!, you have got that growing feel down perfectly, awesome perspective....:)

dorothyblueeyes 2006/10/14 - 9:44:39
Oh, I love this; truly.This is the most wonderful illustration, wow. You could do book illustrations, especially for kid's books.I love this. Great!!
ryoanna 2006/10/14 - 17:6:55
im luvin the colours and textures in this.. good job! :)
elolinon 2006/10/21 - 3:4:14
You have a very nice, personal style :D I like it ^^ Awesome picture too - the expressions are very neat :D
clua 2006/10/21 - 14:14:51
everyone thanks! :D
lorelai 2006/10/23 - 10:38:18
Well this is a new take on the theme! :) :) I love how you draw from certain anime flavors but you never fail to create lots of expression in your faces, something I feel anime often lacks.
mika 2006/11/12 - 1:49:20
Quite an interesting take on the Alice theme, I love the way there's a lot to look at, a great pic and that queen certainly looks menacing!...:)

The Caterpillar on the Huge Mushroom,in Alice in Wonderland.: When I thought of the mushrooms,I thought of this wierd texture of mushrooms,and even the underside;it seemed most renderable in black and white,and the textures of the mushroom would show the best.I think I am getting better,with this one,on my "sensitivity"with the drawing pad.And my "sensitivity"with Oekaki software,too.I used to do pen and ink,many years ago,similiar to this;you have no idea how difficult this is to do,in real ink and pen.You had to be an overconfident,perfectionist to do black pen and ink(and brush,often)work;I used to be.I no longer am so well-nerved.NO mistakes;no erasing,no covering up.--and the diluted ink,with a brush,for watercolor,in this,would also be a nightmare;ink runs,blots,and does not always do what you want;lots. I used to LOVE doing that kind of work;I was SICK!(no,just young.)I am drawing and painting now,more than I have done in years,so maybe I'm getting better.But I wanted the delicate lines,in black,white,grays, for this. It is NOT perfect,but it was late at night,and I could not go outside,and hunt down a stray mushroom,to copy. ADVERTISMENT for Oekaki: Oekaki has given me back my desire to do artwork,because of it's ease compared to real 3-D mediums,which are more expensive,messy,time-consuming,and take up a whole studio of space.Otherwise,I probably would not be DOING artwork again.I am one of the "old"artists,who did everything from scratch,oils,watercolors,ink,ect.Guys,it was HARD.It was expensive. Ok,the old ways are great,but they are often too complex. I finally found the best side of technology; ART TOOLS. Anyone you know,gripes about how we do not need computers,you tell em,we artists do NOT want to go back to "the good old days". Learning that way is good,but not forever. I love this new theme, going to read the book,look for cute stuff.
mika 2006/10/12 - 22:1:39
Wow, you've really made those textures work for you there, I wish I could run my fingers over the screen and feel them, caterpiller guy is spot on too ....he has that slightly adorable yet not too trustworthy look about him....:)
I'm reminded of the old black and white Sunday paper 'funnies' when I see your work .....and in this endless sea of anime it's a definate breath of fresh air, I must insist you keep it up!
clua 2006/10/14 - 7:23:5
wow soo cool!
nice work dorothy!
---alice in wonderland?
i want to try too!!
dorothyblueeyes 2006/10/14 - 9:48:47
Thanks for the comments;I'm almost 60,I remember reading "Lil Abner" and "Pogo Possom"and the old comics in the newspapers,and comic books: I have to admit someting. During mostly the 70's,I did do comic books,wrote them and drew them.Published.We never made very much money,so everyone got out of the bizness. Me too. I worked as a cooking teacher,most of my life,and did art on the side. Yeah,I used to ogle all those old ink illustrations. sigh.Must have rubbed off.
mika 2006/10/16 - 10:15:28
I can't actually say I know Lil' Abner and co because I'm from the UK and we didn't get them here, but before my obsession with Calvin and Hobbes I used to read things like 'The Broons', 'Beano', 'Monster fun' which heralded from the early 50's-60's, oddly enough I am trained in cartoon art and illustration and yet never do any of it (well rarely...).....:)
