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! ^^

For my amazing friend
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
