View Full Version : Ink Drawing: Alice in Wonderland
11-03-2004, 11:45 PM
Heres a scene depicting the fake, drug filled world inside your head known as wonderland. I decided to have a more mature, sexier alice, and I changed the look of the catepillar quite a lot. To empathize that this world is in your mind, I have made the ground a large brain. I've drawn the sun in a fake cartoonistic style, and made the sky checkered again to empathize the dream-like existence. I've tried to make the image as detailed and trippy as possible, I'd love to hear some comments and critiques.

The idea is neat but it's a bit hard to make out at first.

Yes, being all pen, and in B&W, and being very detailed, it is kindof hard to make out the whole scene, there's alot going on, that's why I'm coloring it, make it pop out at you more, here's a preview

Psychadelic. I would like to see you paint over the original in a solid color. This way you could improve the shape of things.

One of my favorite stories was Alice In Wonderland. Intresting idea, I like it.

I like the style, but I'd consider changing the background checkerboard design. For one thing, it's straight out of Tom Petty's video, "Don't Come Around Here No More" and makes the piece seem less original. Also, the square pattern doesn't match the trippy psychedelic mood you seem to be going for. Maybe a tie dye sky? I know that's cliche, but just something with less form -- as if details become more hazy with distance.
I'm not so sure about the caterpillar -- he has the face of a ferret and looks too alert and happy to be stoned, too nice to be doping Alice up. Perhaps if he looked more sinister? As for Alice, her right boob is bigger than her left and her right leg is longer than her left. I like the overall concept, and the detail you put into the brain matter, the trees and shrooms. And I agree that the color definitely helps isolate different elements of the picture. I hope you keep working on this . Reminds me of a Robert Crumb picture.
