UGGHHH terrible terrible terrrrible scan/photo. I really need a new scanner or something. It's just awful.

Anyhoo this is a very very :iconpocketowl: inspired painting of Alice, the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle. He used to be a REAL turtle.

gouache on pastel paper!

Well, this is from some very famous children's story that I'm completely unaware of, yes? Very much like everything about it, so 100% compliments from me. However, the artwork is just right. Your work is stunning!!

I love it. The Mockturtle is by far my favorite character.

I LOVE the Mock Turtle and the Gryphon. This is a wonderful illustration of them. :D
What's really bizarre though is that I always pictured the Gryphon's beak and claws to be blue for some reason. The fact that they are blue here makes this picture extra wonderful. C:

The "terrible terrrrible scan/photo" kinda gives it a cool texture. I dig it!

Oh this is so nice. I love the dream-like effect this has. The girl's expression is nice, as well.
