The Mad Hatter by AbigailLarson The Mad Hatter by AbigailLarson
It's my Mad Hatter! I've been redesigning all the characters of "Alice in Wonderland" for one of my finals, and thought I'd share my favorite so far :) I'm doing scenes from the Mad Tea Party, but I plan to eventually illustrate the entire book. Yes! I am insane.

Background texture from Struck Dumb: [link]

Graphite, watercolor, and a little digital

The art here is flawless, your style is amazing, but I need to make an observation, this may have been done on purpose or not, but the coat is closing to the wrong side, an horizontal flip would solve that, or maybe you did that on purpose because he is Mad XD

Didn't notice until I saw this fellow in A Mad Tea Party and look at the rest of the pieces but ya went even further with the building of layers and shades in this piece than the rest.  It caught me off guard how flat he appears in A Mad Tea Party by comparison.  That said I think the flatness of A Mad Tea Party keeps it from getting too busy.

Wonderful Mad Hatter I esp like the raven? crow? in the hat!  Makes me want to get on the ball drawing a real drawing of my burlesque play on Alice that I did in my Bleach and Cloth strip.
