The Trial of Alice

This is an Illustration based on the Fairy Tale "Alice in Wonderland" in my vision. As with all the other illustrations in this collection I'm doing my influence on the original story. Word to the wise 10 characters in a single composition is hell on wheels. This piece took forever to finish. It went through many iterations till it reached this result. I wanted this pallet to be very saturated in color and take on the look of the children's story book illustrations that pop off the pages with color. Originally the Mad Hatter was to be in a tweed jacket but once I painted it it really cluttered the piece and I had to choose a more simple approach. Simplicity seemed to be the key with this busy composition so I had to pull back from doing the usual textures I love to do with clothing. I'm finally happy to shelf this for a bit and work on the next illustration on the list.

Arie Character Sheet

This is my model sheet for one of my characters for another side comic project I'm working on. It's not affiliated with anything as of yet, but it does contain my copyright (so no stealing!). It's a short simple comic which will be only one book. I'm already having so much fun with this project.

Sketch Topic #1

We started a sketch group at my studio. The topic was "Dark Disney Princess." Now I know what your I did not suggest this topic. Another person did but I was very happy to go with it. Who doesn't love to draw Disney! I chose to draw Jasmine since Aladdin is my favorite movie. I'll post the other topics as they get announced at work. Stay tuned!
