PM-A :: Elias in Wonderland by MelodicSoul PM-A :: Elias in Wonderland by MelodicSoul

Warning :: BIG FILE!

Gosh, this is easily the biggest picture that I've ever worked on. So much work...and it doesn't even look that good! //SHOT

:bulletgreen: Anyway, this was inspired by the group's weekly theme Wonderland! :bulletgreen:

It had to do with Alice in Wonderland, so, obviously, I had to buckle down and draw something. I never realized it was going to turn out so big. ^^
All of the characters included in this picture are people that I've rp-ed with, or just close friends of mine. I wanted to add more characters, but I wasn't quite sure how to fit them in...
Obviously, Elias is portrayed as Alice in this picture I'll use any excuse to draw him in a dress //SHOT. I just thought that he really suited the roll. Plus, their names are kind of similar!! I know that blue is not his colour scheme, but I couldn't help it - Alice needs to be in blue! The dress was inspired by Alice in "Heart no Kuni no Alice".

Next up, we have Roan as the March Hare. Originally I wanted to have him as the Cheshire, but, after the March Hare came into mind, both me and Tay agreed that it suited him better. I'm sorry that I got rid of his antennae for this picture, Tay! They just looked so weird with the hare ears there. :iconsawbplz:

Down in front is Arela as the Red Queen. I know that her colour scheme is totally screwed here, but the role just suited her perfectly, and the red queen has to be red! All of the other characters had very specific outfit styles (Alice wears that dress and the other three dress fancy) so I went a little crazy on this one. Plus, Fran loves her sexy characters, so I just had to try my hand at giving her a sexy outfit - I hope it suits her!

Tallulah is the White Rabbit. For some reason, the instant that I decided I wanted to include Tallulah, the White Rabbit came to mind. I just think she suits the role! She's such a cutie, I just hope that I managed to capture her alright.

Last but not least is Carter as one of my all-time favourite characters, that Mad Hatter! :dummy: I had a lot of fun with her outfit (especially those boots <3), though I'm sorry that her face looks a little weird! I originally was going to have her hanging upside-down, but...I liked it this way better.

And of course I had to add in Chess somehow. xD

The diamond background was once again inspired by "Heart no Kuni no Alice". I originally just had the diamonds, but the picture looked rather blank to me, so I added random objects in the background. A pocketwatch, some roses...a chair.

Anyway, I hope you like it! I don't even want to think about how long this picture took me to do! Also, I hope that you don't mind that I borrowed your character.

Holy shitake mushrooms talk about an enormous picture!! *A* Given that the theme is Alice in Wonderland, though, I shouldn't be too surprised. :XD:
But anyways, holy, you did an amazing job with this picture! So many characters in one place, all with different expressions, and the costumes looks great...Two thumbs up for you!

Elias, Elias, Elias....not only does his name sound similiar to 'Alice', but he looks pretty darn good in that dress as well. xD It's really easy to see the Wonderland inspiration in the design, but I love how you tailored it a bit and made it better suit him and the fact that he's a Roselia. Love the little roses and gah, just can't get over how perfect this is! <333
Moving on to Roan.
ALkjasdlksajdlksjdlkajsd!!! So much perfect right there. You drew my babbu so wonderfully and he just looks so great, and that roll suits him so well- //sobs happy tears
The semi-formal wear is absolutely perfect! <3 Roan wears it wonderfully, and it's so March Hare-esque. And to go a step furthur you even through in his own flair with the sleeves and made it more Chinchou-like. ;A; (I can't even begin to explain how much I love the checkered pattern. And his shoes. And that pocket watch. And everything.) Of course I can forgive you for getting rid of his antennas! Just looking I can tell that it must have been weird to have both them and the ears.
And how have I not mentioned the pose yet?! It is so intricately insane that I 1) have no idea how you managed to pull it off (and you did) and 2) is so perfect for the oddity that is the March Hare~ I really love what you did with the tea too!

Ah, Arela looks so pretty!~ And the colour scheme suits her so well; she should wear more red! xD And of course I'm sure she would be able to play this role wonderfully. xD
Haha, anyways, you did a great job coming up with the outfit and the pose. The blank cards make for a really nice touch. And of course the sexy dress is looking good. You did a great job designing it~
Tallulah looks like the perfect White Rabbit if garb alone is anything to go by! For some reason the silver pocket watch, compared to the other gold ones featured in this picture, really caught my eye. It really goes with her colour scheme and, I think, brings out her being the White Rabbit. Somehow. I'm not sure how, but it works in my brain for some reason. Anyways, she looks really pretty, and I love the idea of her hanging herself up with the chain.
And of course we have Carter next, who makes for a wonderful Mad Hatter. That pose is so perfect, I don't even. xD It's like she's looking down at everyone else and thinking "Oh, just another regular day here in Wonderland. I'm just going to have some tea and talk nonsense. You know, the good stuff!" Ahem, but anyways, the outfit looks great! I especially love the hat, and ohmygosh those shoes. <3

And there is so much more to this picture than just the characters! I mean, the checkered background looks amazing, and then there's all the stuff you added into the empty spaces! The roses look so nice -as always when you draw them- and I approve completely of the mysterious Cheshire grin. And the card suit cameos in the background. And the upside down chair. xD
All in all, this picture is insane in size and turned out great!

Oh - I know. ^^; I probably could have fixed it up so that it looked better, but, oh well: I'm too lazy for that now.
The theme just drew me in! Trust me, if I had more time (and motivation) I would have probably added more characters or even just add a few more detailed things to the background.
Thank you so much - that means a lot to me. <3

Haha - trust me, I did not make that tie between the two until I was in the middle of colouring him. xD What is up with me and drawing boys in dresses?! :iconsawbplz: I'm really happy with the dress, so thank you. <3

Oh Roan - you were so much fun to draw~ And you have no idea how happy it makes me that you actually like how he turned out! :iconlawooplz: He was originally going to be the Cheshire, but then I realized how much more the March Hare suited him. I had so much fun with the semi-formal wear; I have a thing for vests and ties and the like~ <3 And I'm happy you forgive me for leaving out his antennaes! The pose : I did have the help of a few refs. ^^;
And the tea - I knew that I as soon as I set my sights on doing an Alice in Wonderland picture, I just had to have someone doing that with the tea!

Haha, just make her a shiny Absol and *poof* : it works! :dummy: She suits the role perfectly in my eyes, so I'm happy that I'm not the only one to think that. Fran loves her sexy characters so I had to do it. xD And the only reason the cards are blank is because I was too lazy to add details to them. ^^;

Thank you so much! >3< I desperately wanted to throw Tallulah in this picture, and it makes me so happy that you support my choice.
I had fun with the Mad Hatter : thank you!

Gosh, thank you so much for your wonderful words! >3< Comments like this make drawings like this worth all of the effort. <3

I love drawing that boy in dresses a little too much. ^^ But now I have a new victim //SHOT
Haha, you know it's true~
I'm glad! I had a lot of fun drawing her and that outfit, but it makes me happy to know that you like how she turned out.
Well, shiny Absols are red, so I guess it makes sense if the colour works for her??
Gosh, I am way too happy that you like it - thank you!!
Pft - I would love to see you do that and what you come up with! Save the books! D:
It's my pleasure; I couldn't have drawn a group picture like this without including her.

Oh wow, this picture is amazing! :squee: the colours, the curious feel of the composition (love Roan and his tea, by the way! Very creative <3); Plus it looks like you put a lot of time and effort into this drawing, and it definitely shows!
I really love all the costumes and the way you adapted them to match each character. Heehe, I'll make no comment about Elias in a dress ^^ but aaah thanks for including Carter, and as the mad hatter, too! She looks wonderful~ and nuu her face doesn't look weird at all ^^
MelodicSoul Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you so much! (I've always had that idea for Alice in Wonderland, so when I finally decided to draw a picture for it, I had to include it.)
I'm glad that all of my effort paid off.
I had a lot of fun coming up with the different outfits, so I'm glad you like them! Elias and his dresses~
It was my pleasure to include her; I'm happy that you like how she turned out!

I'm so glad you like how she turned out, and that you like her outfit as well! I tried to go for something classy, and I wasn't quite sure what style would suit her.

Thank you so much~
