"High" Tea, Anyone?
This is my entry for the "Picture Yourself in Wonderland" Contest [link]
CLOSE UP of the Mad Hatter [link]
My favorite character is The Mad Hatter because of his crazy personality and colorful costume, accessories. When it comes to Alice in Wonderland, I right away think of the playing card soldiers of the Red Queen. The wood textured background represents an old wooden table where the Mad Hatter would play poker with his friends as they enjoy their afternoon tea at the Mad Tea Party.
Everything is vector, done in Illustrator. The part that takes the longest to do are the details on the clothing and hat. I tried to keep the colors and style similar to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, but also added my own touch to make the character more chibi and rounded.
