I'm still thinking about doing something for that Alice competition, and so every so often an Alice drawing just pops out. This time it's the Cheshire Cat. I'm not overly happy with it - I think I'd like to go in a more interesting direction than just a regular cat with a big smile. But anyways, the first image is what I came up with on my first round in Painter. Then I did some color adjustments in Photoshop and then painted over some stuff in Painter again. That's the second image. I want to get away from all these pastels I keep using.
Chris Appelhans has some great Alice illustrations.
In other news, "Enchanted" is number one at the box office this weekend. Go Enchanted! I loved that movie and highly suggest you go see it if you enjoy animation or happiness.
