Love the idea of the Lewis Carroll characters.

I have a very large back piece based on Jabberwocky. :)

wow I think its really cool how you mixed traditional alice art with a more modern looking cheshire cat.. that cat looks insannnnee I love it.

I've been contemplating getting an alice tattoo.. do you think you'll ever get alice herself or are you just sticking with other characters?

hehe yeah, thanks! i took the cat head from one of the lesser known illustrations and told the artist "this is the gist, but make it less hideous and more just..creepy cheshire style" :giggle:

i'm not going to get alice, i'm sticking with all the really ambivalent good-and-evil creature type characters. sort of my schtick. and not a lot of people go with it but its still reference to the two books and all therein.

i say go for it ;)

looks even better now its healed up,
are you having the whole thing in black and grey or are you getting little splashes of color in it.

opioid Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008  Professional General Artist
mostly black and grey. i'm going to fill any negative space between the designs with smoke and leaves (which are an element in a few of the other things that'll be on my forearm) and the leaves will be in shades of red.

i love the look of black and red :D

cool,
what else are you having on your forearm??
or is it a big secret :shh:

I love black and red too, thats why i went with it for mine,
its a great contrast and they really complement each other

i'm getting the rockinghorse fly and some other weird little bird and badger critters :D and then whatever else fits. maybe a pocketwatch worked into empty space as well rather than getting the white rabbit himself

I can't help but think, though, that it might be more cohesive if there were also a little smoke curling behind the jabberwock? Just my thoughts, though. ;)

all in good time :D

that'll come along with the caterpillar

after we get all the elements on there, then he'll go back in and hit everything a second time, fill in what seems empty and all that
