Dark Wonderland: Lesley by EllaNyx Dark Wonderland: Lesley by EllaNyx
My entry for =MoonlightIllusionist:iconmoonlightillusionist:'s 'Welcome to Wonderland' Contest.
This is her character, Lesley Lavender Lenore, Wonderland's 7th Alice.
Took me two and a half days of intense concentration (And the 'borrowing' of my sister's best pen!) but finally it's done!

A couple of Notes:1) On the back of each oversleeve is a single white club (clover).
2) The club on the far right side was miss-sized. As shown it's about the size for the back godets. The correct size is halfway between that and the front ones.
3) The leg ribbons are uneven on purpose. At this point she is Angry, Ornery and Depressed (and perhaps a touch insane?) , conditions fueled by her loosing her memories. The ribbons are just a reflection of her world unraveling around her.

Haha, yes, I majorly messed up on the right hand and didn't notice 'til after I'd penned it in. :XD:
And faces...I love and hate doing them at the same time. I'm actually working on drawing more, but finding good references is a pain and I don't want them all to end up having my face because that's the only model I can get!

whats wrong with your face? you're pretty...
you could always "modify" your face by imagining it slightly different...

EllaNyx Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2010
Yeah, I've been thinking that, but if I try to alter it too much it ends up looking weird. I'm thinking I should probably buy a couple of hairstyle magazines, because they show so many different faces, styles and angles of the head, it might help me get better at drawing characters.

ooh... that would work :nod:
i didnt even think about that...
i hoarded loads of magazines from everyone to improve my drawing... i kept them all *looks back and forth shiftily*

I cannibalize my magazines,tearing,cutting out bits and pieces that I like and storing them all in in a hugely obese folder that threatens to spill it's guts if I try to fit any more in....^^;

I adore your attention to details, especially around the skirt--the black with the pieces of white marked with clubs(?). Her double-breasted vest makes me the happiest lol :)
I love your use of texture/line with the striped arms too, gives it another dimension :D

:+fav:
I wanna see somebody wear this ^^
