AIJ - Head in the Clouds by Zeria-chan AIJ - Head in the Clouds by Zeria-chan
Alice in Japan
"Head in the Clouds"
Pen and ink, and watercolor on illustration board

Done for a class project where we had to take a well-known children's story (Alice in Wonderland) and put it in a different country and time period (feudal Japan). This is from the scene where Alice's neck grows and she is attacked by birds that think she's a snake.

EDIT:
Woah, Daily Deviation! Thank you so much, `mykel !

That is some serious neck-age. I love the origami pattern on her kimono, though. :D

Well, Daily Deviations usually are boring, some artistic pieces in modern, scary style, but this one catches eye. Not only that I'm interested a bit with Japan and Japanese culture, but it's also very classical- normal colours, interesting composition, and the psttern on kimono... I want a dress like that!
