This lovely lady is Miss Alice Liddell, the girl about whom Lewis Carroll wrote his classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass."
is currently hosting an Art Jam wherein participants create a piece that portrays Alice Liddell (the "real Alice") with regards to Disney's version of Wonderland.
So here I used a picture of Alice Liddell for the pose reference. I used various Victorian fashion plates from the 1860s as reference for piecing together a dress.
I colored the dress and apron blue and white & made her shoes black Mary Janes after Disney's Alice (the colors were used before that, but Disney made them popular); the lace is colored a golden yellow to reference the original color of the fictional Alice's dress.
Finally, if you look long enough, you'll find all four shapes corresponding with the card suits, as well as a reference to the original Tenniel illustration of Alice as queen (hint: chess).
I used original Tenniel illustrations from the Wonderland books as reference for the style.
There are certainly tons of mistakes in here, in terms of anatomy, lighting, folds, etc. I am still working on teaching myself the ins & outs of those various parts of art.
However, I've gotta say I'm UBER-proud of this, and SO excited that I have finally found the perfect computer program to use with my Wacom tablet.
Guys, Corel Painter XII is AWE. SOME.
