mad hatter sketch page by loish mad hatter sketch page by loish
these are some character sketches i drew for Virtual Fairground, for the development of an Alice in Wonderland MMO. i came up with it myself but the process of making it was guided by an art director from the company (Duncan Sandt). these sketches led to a final piece which is here - [link]

drawn with a mechanical pencil and colors added digitally with photoshop.

Hello there,
I really love your Alice work!
I wanted to let you know that a guy named Corey Fontenot, in the USA is erasing your name from your work and posting it on facebook as his own. As a fellow artist I thought you should know.

Cheers for now,
Ararejewelqt

I like your vision better than what they went with. I'd have played if well.... I had money, but what you saw looks like something I'd be interested in. You're on the site. You could try to out do them. I mean. There are people here for that kind of work.

Too bad. Was a good Idea, just well... It was done all wrong.

I like this a lot because it seems very different from your typical 'mad hatter' design. Very nice!

The mad hatter wasn't really invented by Lewis Carol, in the old days people put mercury on top hats to make them shiny, and as a result many people actually did go mad.

I imagine it was tempting to make him look like Tim Burton's Mad Hatter, and I'm glad to see you made him your own (or Duncan Sandt's, however you prefer to distribute the credit.).

Woah, he looks creepy! For some reason, he reminds me of characters like Clayton in Disney's Tarzan, or the bad guy in The Rescuers Down Under.

Oh wow Lois I love your concept of the mad hatter his design is unique but still fitting with his quirky nature!
May i ask have you been signed to do the artwork of this mmo? Also is it still in development or can you play it yet? (sorry if you have already mentioned it)

Thanks,

thanks!
i was only approached to do some freelance concept art, so no, i was not signed to do the artwork of the game itself. it's also not something had time for when they were developing it.
and i think it's about to be released :]
