Welcome to Wonderland- HnKnA by aragorn1014 Welcome to Wonderland- HnKnA by aragorn1014
Fullview please if you want to see it more clearly! PNG doesn't like huge file sizes...xD

First submission of 2011!<333 And well it doesn't really count because I've been working on this seriously forever since May of last year..but ANYWAY xDD

Group pic of the main characters of the game, Heart no Kuni no Alice by QuinRose~ I used the manga by Houshino Soumei though as a reference for the designs with some pics from the game for ideas on colors. I'm really really proud of this actually..quite some experimenting going on here and I just kept on adding more and more to this pic hahaha xDD

From left to right top to bottom I guess? Boris Airay, Julius Monrey, Alice Liddell, Ace, Elliot March, Blood Dupre and Peter White. xD

So um...yeah this was actually just a compilation of sketches I put together, and I'm sorry Gowland, the twins and Vivaldi aren't there(though I originally planned to have her in there..the composition didn't work out so well that way ^^; ), but yeah I just couldn't fit them! So I picked the main guys and put them in xD Hope you guys don't mind!

Alice, Julius, Blood and Peter were all drawn in May of last year, while Ace and Boris were drawn much later, like October or something while I was on my art hiatus xDD I tried to do some different techniques..and I was really able to fully utilize SAI for this one I believe!

Sorry I had to convert the file to PNG by the way..PSD wasn't working so well OTL.
Oh and Alice's expression is as it is because the idea for this came when I drew what kind of feeling she had being overwhelmed by all of the things happening in Heartland at first. She's a lot more headstrong than this, I'm aware, but here I made her more passive like she was when she first arrived.
LOL and Julius and Blood are actually larger than the others for specific reasons(not just because I like them best xD)~ Blood because supposedly the BloodxAlice pairing is canon, and Julius because Alice lives with him, and I find that they are also extremely close because of this reason. So don't kill me for that xD And the fact that they are floating heads..I put my insignia thing and stuff all over it so this wouldn't get stolen haha.

But in any case, I hope you guys really like this! I think Alice came out the best..but please fullview by the way so you can look at the details(and you can see all of my mistakes OTL)! I really spent a lot of time on coloring Alice, the accesories and the cards! I had to make up the designs for the cards so yeah xDD I also decided not to shade the cards so that they wouldn't get too caught up in the background and that they'd really stand out. Hope that doesn't degrade the pic xD

All in all I hope you guys like it! They were all really so much fun to draw! Take care! ^^

Picture(c)Aragorn1014
HnKnA and the characters(c)QuinRose and Houshino Soumei
Texture(c) someone on dA I can't remember.. I'll go find the source later!
Splatter brush(c)corelilia(I think? I'll double check this too lol)

NOW THAT I ACTUALLY HAVE MORE TIME xD
Done in Paint Tool SAI and Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 with Wacom Intuos3 Tablet.

For my amazing friend :iconangelbestdream: for being so supportive and such a wonderful friend! I thought of you when I was finishing this pic, and I promised you nothing less than my best work and hardest efforts, so this one is for you ^^ Love you SO much!<3 I hope you're doing well and that we can talk soon!

EDIT: Wowww RIGHT After typing my dedication at the bottom I finally remembered something kinda important LOL xDD
The hair-coloring style was inspired by my friend Angel-kun's style for coloring hair [URL="[link]"]like so[/URL]. xDD If you're wondering where the painted look came from haha~ it was inspired by that! And I guess..well yeah I wanted to use this for a challenge of Gemma's on theOtaku!

See ya guys!<3

xD So was I! I'm looking into owning the whole series, but it's kinda tough since I heard they're planning to publish in like omnibus volumes? OTL complications.

But anyway, thank you! haha he's not my favorite in the series, but I do like him a lot =) I think he turned out best in this aside from Alice. Thanks so much!<3

Yes it is but it's based off the otome game made by QuinRose.

Otome is like a dating game basically(like a choose your own adventure except it's a girl choosing which guy she wants to be with).

I love hearing that, practice is the backbone of good art. Alot of people don't seem to understand that and it's kind of sad. :( They just say, "I can't do it, it's too hard." And they give up so quickly.

*nods* That one of the thing that keeps pushing me to draw because nothing ever happens overnight and it just bothers me SO much when someone says "I'm through with this, I just suck" and they haven't even been drawing more than a year. You've got to want it you know?
I'm glad you agree with me on that. =) I won't stop until I'm at a point where I feel like I'm satisfied. I'll keep trying!

COMPOSITION, that is all I can say.
Wait no, I can say more:
You're improving with digital art ma'am.
I think you did a great job with having each character fade/blend into the background! (Although I must I say I like it more when there's something/someone that cuts the image, like how Boris is bordered by Julius and Alice).

The words that trim the edge of the pic look like lace from a distance. Very cute. <3

reminds me of Alice in Wonderland..
ooh wait.. It is Alice in wonderland.
But at first I thought its a visual manga you made :O

well, although there are some flaws .. like the illustration of eyes and face - lacking details or proportion

And the color looks flat.

Its still attractive and for first glance would give it 8.5/ 10

Looking forward to new artworks =D

Ahaha I wish I made this xD it's such a great story and all the characters are reallly great!


OTL Even though I focused especially hard on making more depth and contrast with the use of unified colors, it still looks flat??? Man I'm never going to learn how to color at this rate.. Would you mind giving me some advice as to how to not make it appear so flat then so that u may improve the next time around?

Yeah the lineart was done a longggg time ago and after I had finished coloring and I reversed the image, I found out just how horribly proportioned all the faces had been OTL. And by long time ago, I mean like May of last year xDD

I'll work on all of those things. I wasn't aiming for flat coloring so that kinda put me down, but I swear I'll put more effort and time into my coloring to prove to you and myself that I can get better! Thanks for the comment~!

I recommend that there must be shadows in the sclerae of the eyes.. focus on the eyes too because it is the first thing that a viewer sees. Some characters doesn't have shadows behind their noses, eyelids and below the mouth. There must be one source of light too. For example if the source of light is at the right then shadows are at the left :) your illustration is okay. I appreciate your watercolour effect that you're trying to achieve. But the colors you used has no harmony- I recommend using Photo Filter in Adobe Photoshop so there's unison of colors.
On the contrary, the splatters makes your artwork dirty. Instead, it would be better if the corners are darken so it would look dramatic than splatters.. since Alice in Wonderland is a dark and mysterious story after all. ^____^

Ganbatte Kudasai . Looking forward to your next artwork. Just send me a link @ my page if you have a new one okay? Take care... let's study hard for the exams n__n

xD I put all of those lightly actually but I don't think I emphasized it enough at all LOL! Thank you for the input on that! And the lower lip line..ehh it's not really my style but I could try it out I guess. I used to draw them but it didn't really suit my tastes OTL.
My light source is from the upper left hand corner and I thought I emphasized that enough especially while shading their clothes but I guess I didn't make my tones dark enough OTL gosh I fail SO badly.. *sigh*

Ohhh I don't like to use filters because I feel like they detract from the actual artwork and just fancy it up with effects but I'll give it a try..I added bits of purple and blue in all of the shading especially in the clothes and skin to unify the pic but that didn't really work it looks like =/ I guess I don't really know what to do regarding tones but I'll keep trying!

Oh geez haha dirty? Well that kinda fails on my part xDD
I'll look at it..I didn't want it to be TOO dark, but it gives off that vibe doesn't it? ^^;

Sure thing~ thanks so much!! *super hugs* Thank you for all of the tips and everything, I'll keep them in mind for my next digital pic ^^ Good luck to us both! *nods*

And yes you definitely did! Thank you again for your kindness! >.< <33
