Really beautiful work. I like the drab tones next to the Alice and the character designs. Very nice "homage."

I am thoroughly impressed. By your work in general and this piece in particular since, like many others, I'm a fan of Alice in Wonderland. I did a post — which you can view here — featuring some of the earlier artists who illustrated this story, such as Arthur Rackham and Jessie Willcox Smith, which I want to follow up by showing contemporary interpretations by currents artists. I'd be delighted if you agreed to this, and of course I would give you full credit + link. Let me know what you think. In any case there is no rush at all, and I'll be back to visit in any case.

I'd like to see the king's eyes a bit more. If you could "punch up" the queen's and his' personalities even more, I think that'd make it stand out more. make them real, lively ( like how you did with the guards) so that alice's presence in their kingdom looks even more foreign. Its already there, I just think it could be clearer. Also, if you could get me that "Tron" work by the 12th, that would be excellent. Do it!

Wow. Just amazing textures in a great drawing. I like how your Alice is so young and so very brunette. Beautiful.

AdmRitestuff said...

Nevermind what I said, its just the eyes. I just want them to have less dark eyes!

Spectacularly beautiful. I really dig your way with color.

Wow.
Pretty amazing stuff, sir.
You may or may not remember me from Payne's class last year.
How is your book being published? Through a publisher or self publish?
Did you get a rep?
I have a lot of questions...
Sorry.

Best-
Josh
