Ringmaster Alice pg 1 by sadwonderland Ringmaster Alice pg 1 by sadwonderland
This is a CMYK coloring assignment that I did for my Computer Coloring For Comics class at SCAD. I had to draw four pages of an original comic and the color them in CMYK channels.

This is AMAZINGLY BAD ART AND COLORING and such but the story concept is sound and I kinda wanted to finish it. I also got an A on the project. :)

In this story, Alice has returned to Wonderland and become Ringmaster Alice, putting all the creatures into a sideshow circuit and charging people from our world to see them. The leader of the rebellion against her is the Mad Hatter. S'all I can say for now, but check out the other pages besides this one.

I KINDA want to do this story idea as my next book series (not in color, obviously, too expensive), but so many many Alice comics already done to death! Mine's not gothic or anything but still, I'm afraid of just flogging a dead horse at this point.

On the other hand, my NAME is Alice and I love Alice in Wonderland and I feel like I deserve to do it anyway, yah buddy!

I dunno...thoughts, comments?

Damn. That's pretty twisted, putting wonderlandians in a freak show...

What are CMYK channels? Just curious.
And very nice, by the way :D

Oh, I so want to make Alice comics too! I suppose, we should do as many as we can, after all, Alice is amazing, and we should have as many people as we can creating new and different stories for her.
Well, I find that way best anyway :3
I hope you do too <333

Haha, Alice sounds like a total bastard.

Ask any Alice fan; Alice fans don't get sick of Alice. American McGee fans don't get sick of the game, ever. Alice is like an illegal drug you can't afford enough of, or something.

i really want to go there xD

anyway, i love the idea, its very different from most Alice in Wonderland spin offs, and very out of character for Alice's meek nature in the movie and Lewis Carrol's book (which i really should read again ^^; lol) and any other Looking Glass related stories (but looking glass wars is :heart: lol but i still need to read the sequel... >.>;)
anyway, love the idea -goes to look at other pages in gallery-

Personally, I think that it's a wonderful idea for a comic.
Rhia-chan Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2007
I think it's a spiffy idea, normally it's a Gothic or Fetish thing for Alice as I've seen so far, this could be interesting!
MercuryFox22 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2007
Ha, I like the idea!

Although the Alice in Wonderland thing is indeed overdone, I think your view on it could make it interesting. Alice being the "villain" is something not done very often (if that's what you're aiming at in this comic). And you already have a fanbase, so who knows--it could do well. :)

(oh, and I'm personally glad you didn't go with the "Bishonen Hatter" trend...)

go for it, because if its not you, the someone else will. it won't end lol.
awwwwww just hot water?! jeez.
cloudedleopardcubb Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2007
It made me laugh. The art is incredible, and I can imagine it without color, and it still looks great! I agree with you, Alice in Wonderland is a bit over done, but I say that this is good so go for it!

Well, I haven't read the whole thing yet, but it sounds pretty cool. Besides, having th name Alice does give you that wild card. :)

Geez. Alice is a bitch.

Interesting twist on an old story, but honestly I'm looking forward to seeing yer 1950's space adventure! :P

What if you went ahead with the idea, but didn't call the main character Alice? Instead of using the Alice characters and Wonderland as a backdrop for a new setting, merely hint at it. Later, perhaps in the final chapter, or epilogue you could reveal it was Wonderland and Alice, if you wanted.

It'd be better to hint at something and leave a dangling thought in the readers mind over several chapters than just go out and say it. Isn't that one of the allures of the original Alice anyway? The mystery and metaphors?
