Cheshire Cat - HotArU by LanWu Cheshire Cat - HotArU by LanWu
"Well, then," the Cat went on, "you see a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tails when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad."
Words quoted from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, chapter VI: Pig and Pepper
errr.... hotaru means fireflies

Was a watercolor art but I ruined it. Decided to do CG, repainted the face three times, the hair, clothes and background two times each, change the line arts many many times. The most repaired pic I've ever done :dead: I don't understand my problem, but I found difficulties in choosing the right color for this dark scene, and I was getting no idea what the BG will be.... :stupidme:
Actually I want my Cheshire Cat to wear more accessories and more piercing

maybe the color will looks a bit dark, 'cuz I draw this on the other PC, and when I viewed it on the PC I used to use for drawing, it became soooo dark :boo: I don't know which was right and which was wrong. As I know, one of my PC is too light and yellowish, while the other one is too dark and redish. I wanted to repair the brightness, but my PC was just too weak to handle large files :tears: Maybe the colors in all of my drawings are off >_< I really need to adjust the colors in my PCs :tears:

so much difficulties only for a Cheshire Cat... <-sigh->

I just love your Chesire Cat! I think he is just perfect. Excuse me pur-fect! :D
BlazesStarGirl Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I like this but I think he could have had a little more madness about him
The second best thing about this piece is the personality of the character's face.So accurate to the Chesire cat's likness. Now, the best thing ofcourse is the awsome background and the art itself.

Oh man, you're making me want to reread Alice In Wonderland so bad!!

That is probably one of my favorite quotes from the whole book. I adore the Cheshire Cat, and he makes quite a hot cat boy.... ;3
Great job on the coloring, it must've been hard with all those color changes! I think the boa was a very nice touch to his outfit. And yeah I understand about the piercings, I imagine him having one or two on his ear.
His finger-claws are really cute, just like the kitty he is. X)

I know that since I'm one in many who love Alice and the cat and your art, what I say might not make a difference ... especially when you submitted this so long ago...

however.... I thank you. I really love this picture. I'm a huge fan of the Cheshire Cat. He's one of my all time favorite characters ever created in the history of every story/movie/plotline of anything ever made. I think he's simply and absolutely amazing. I love how you captured him and used the quotes more than anything else! It's one of my all time favorite quotes... so thank you, thank you for this lovely picture! And all your others!

You know, he reminds me a lot of the main character from Loveless. *Shoots self for not remembering the name* If you've never read that/seen pictures, look it up- I think you'd like the art. :D

Rasanya aku lebih suka Chesire Cat disney, yang ini kelewat seductive ^^. Great work. Liat watercolornya!

ara? seductive.... ^^; tanpa sadar.....

The color scheme is okay; there's nothing really wrong with it. Although, the Cheshire cat does not look insane enough.
