A Mercurial Mind

The third of my Wonderland portraits, the Hatter has a special place in my heart. I've been trying to paint this guy ever since I finished the Queen portrait, but it finally gelled for me.

Other wonderland portraits:
Alice: mercuralis.deviantart.com/art/…
Queen of Hearts: mercuralis.deviantart.com/art/…

You may be thinking... "hmm, with all these Wonderland portraits, does Mercuralis have some kind of evil plan in the works?" and the answer to that would be "Maybe, I do." :D

Always loved the hatter. And jesters. And the joker card. And the ace. But not the queen of hearts... No, only hatter.

This is a great Hatter piece! My favorite part is his eyes. His hair is wonderful too. I love the tones you used. Much love!

The eyes are just...amazing! Wow, very realistic, very good!
Wow...now this is how the Hatter should be. I have never seen the attraction towards the Mad Hatter, and I didn't care for the Burton-Depp version, but this....now that is sexy and insane, and sinister all at once. Feels like there's a story behind that smirk, and it's not one for the kiddies...

Love it! The silvery-white hair and eyes really bring out a fantasy / supernatural feel in the character. Great work!

Absolutely amazing. I love his playfully sinister look.

Is playful the right word? Cheerful, maybe....hrm. I think you get my meaning, but gosh his eyes and that smile.
love his look makes him more complex in his derangment

simply fabulous. I adore the Hatter, he's such an interesting character in the books (...In Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass).
