Down The Rabbit Hole by Charlie-Bowater Down The Rabbit Hole by Charlie-Bowater
I don't really share sketches that actually end up as paintings all that much on DA. So here's an Alice in Wonderland inspired piece, another potential painting in the Fairy Tales series. Not sure if I'll actually take this one to colour or sketch something else. Who knows :la:

Now you can see how rough my sketches can be! ;D

Enrollment is currently open for my very first skillshare class on Character Concept Art! You can read all the details here and sign up here for anyone interested: Character Concept Art: from thumbnail to final design.

This looks VERY amazing! Very atmospheric. I love Disney's new Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland movie and I also enjoyed American McGee's Alice Madness Returns video game.

Dig the design: head intersects almost exactly at the third subdivision both vertically and horizontally; nice how the negative space shapes interact with the s-curves and spiral of the whirlpool...:sun::skull:

Good lord, I would LOVE to see this completed, as I'm sure hundreds of others would - but even as a sketch you've captured such an amazing feeling in this. It's a mixture of magical and even a bit foreboding, and considering I find the story really quite dark and twisted in parts, that is definitely appropriate! All of the awe and jealousy over here hahah!

i have a question: when you sketch do you sketch in the size the final painting will be or smaller first and then blow it up?

If you do choose to color this piece, I think it could be cool if you made the rabbit hole vivid in color and slowly fade to black and white to emphasize the Wonderland that it leads to.

Lovely! I feel like her left leg is a bit far considering the perspective and her pose, otherwise I just love the small details on her dress, the folds are already so defined, and I think her profile is beautiful. Nice expression and I like the way her hair falls.
