Ringmaster Alice pg 3 by sadwonderland Ringmaster Alice pg 3 by sadwonderland
EDIT: As you can tell, I am just NOT on board with the whole handsome bishounen Mad Hatter trend that makes its way around DA every so often. I'm a traditionalist.

---------

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?

I love this comic!!!!!!! Make it your next manga, I command you!
And I do assume you've been playing American Mcgee's Alice. ^-^ I've always been fond of snotty, rude Alices...

So, in escaping a tyrant, Alice became on herself. Interesting.

i agree with snapesgirl - he does look like jervis tetch. and on a sidenote i was always scared of the mad hatter - he always came off really creepy to me (he's also killed me about 20 times in Alice too)

yeah I redrew him today and he's still sort of Jervis-y...what can I say, I love the batman Mad Hatter!

I didn't have a problem with the hatter, it was the Duchess that always bugged me in that game, she moved too fast!

where did the tradition of the mad hatter looking like so come from though? There are some similarities between that hatter and Mr. Carol/Dodgeson himself....
by the way, very interesting concept!

Tenniel's original drawings, mostly likely :)

I suppose, I guess the reason why there's so many bishounen versions of the mad hatter is because a lot of readers find some sort of romantic relationship between the hatter and alice, which may parallel how people interprete the relationship between Caroll/Dodgeson and the real Alice.... whether it's actually true or not. The circus concept is fitting of the story, really cool idea :D

Personally, if I'm going to throw two redone Alice characters together, it's going to be Alice and the Chesire Cat. I'm surprised more people don't do that!

so many people are all like, "woooo pedophile!" when they talk about carroll, yet they don't realize that he had a million adult female "friends" and was considered sort of a man-about-town at the time. He wasn't this locked away scholar pining for alice liddell like most of the "true" stories love to harp on. Bugs me.

I adore Alice's hair. :D Also I think Hatter looks like Jervis Tetch from the batman comics (who really needs to be in one of the movies by the way), so yay. :D I really like your Wonderland idea, it's very original.

oh man, if ONLY they'd put jervis in one of the new movies! Course they won't, but still.

I'm totally watching the old animated batman on YouTube right now XD

I like your Hatter just as much as I like the one from When Curiosity Met Insanity ([link]).

And Alice is a real brat in this. :XD:

The Hatter still is kinda handsome. But you're right, he isn't the carbon copy, typically used cute Hatter. I like this comic so far, you should consider finishing it.
