The Mad Hatter


This took all day, I know it's not impressive, but I drew it completely in photoshop.

I wanted to draw the Mad Hatter as a chick, but I didn't want to be terribly cliche. I decided to give her the glasgow smile, because in the book, the MAd Hatter thinks he broke time, and forces himself to live his life in an infinite tea party, which sounds very horrible, so why not make yourself smile infinitely too?

Awesome. C:


Very nice, indeed sir. Love the take on it, especially the finger shackles! I'd smile too, forever chained to a cup of madness!

Knocturne responds:

THANK YOU, I was really pleased with the idea of drawing finger shackles and noone said anything about them, but then you did so now I'm happy haha.

Very cool

I love it. Why not smile when you look so good? Nice art man, you have my respect.

Reminds me of chowder

For some reason the designs in the drawing remind of chowder or zetsubou sensei. This is because in those shows designs from clothing or skin stay in a stagnant position while the character moves. If that didn't make sense It's as if the design has one background and the character just moves around in it revealing the background. Along with that it seems that the whole character has this watermark kind of look to it which is pretty awesome ,the way you use it that is.

The clothing looks velvety smooth
The skin looks textured
The hair looks wavy

Koodos many chortles for you

Knocturne responds:

Thank you, and yes, in making the drawing I was thinking of Chowder. I've never gotten to use textures before really, but I tried something new and for the first time ever, it paid off. thank you for the long critique it was a pleasant surprise.

I had to look up the word "chortles" too.


I feel a bit of creepy vibe I think alice in wonderland deserved to be the creepy one of the disney movies.
