Alice and the Cheshire Cat by JonBeanHastings Alice and the Cheshire Cat by JonBeanHastings
Alice and the Cheshire Cat, just before he fades into nothing but a smile.

Commissioned for my friend's new baby. She wanted classic children's book heroines to inspire her new daughter, Zoe Calamity Snell (yes, that's her real name.)

Watercolor on watercolor paper.

I see the tree from the Wendy and Hook picture is going to to be a reocurring theme throughout these =D

Thank you, my dear. It was very difficult not to draw him like the Disney version (I did use the colors, though... or at least as my color-blind eyes would let me).

That's what I love about it...you didn't make a Disney clone, but you didn't go the opposite direction and make him creepy.

And the colors are most definately the proper Cheshire purple.

I like the cheshire cat the most, the colouring on him looks good. i also like the dark outlines you did around edges so it stand out more. good job :clap:

Thanks. (The outlines are because I'm waaaaaaay too influenced by animation, especially Chuck Jones' work.)
