Oh Alice... by Walking-Furnace Oh Alice... by Walking-Furnace
I'm so glad Burton chose to make the Hatter a bigger part of the story. However, am I the only one who was left shaking their fist at the end of the movie? Alice chugs that Jabber-juice without so much as a hug for the hatter?! FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
Even Dorothy had the decency to give the scarecrow a hug and a good bye before clicking her heels.

So I drew my ideal ending! C:

That has got to be the best Hatter I have seen on DeviantART.

I'm wondering why this incredible piece isn't in any groups...

Any chance of JervisTetch, the DC Mad Hatter?

I wish they hadn't taken the kiss out of the script, so what if jhonny is 46 and her being twenty made it uncomfortable, he could have had the guy who dressed like him for the futterwacken do it geez...But wow this is gorgeous so haunting and yet sad...even two years after the movie pictures like this still manage to strike me!

That's because Mrs. Kinsleigh is a little less in touch with her emotions than the One True Alice. While they both kind and gentle and noble, the One True Alice is more emotional and sensitive, while Mrs. Kinsleigh is more rational and logical. That's why, when they both grow to giant size in the hallway, the One True Alice bursts into tears, while Mrs. Kinsleigh is more confused and annoyed.

Still, they both brave, kind, gentle and noble heroines.

Who is the one, true Alice?
GokuMartin Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012
The one from the original Lewis Carroll book.

Miss Kinsleigh = the one from the Burton movie

The Impostor = the one from that awful videogame

The Zenescope = the one from the Zenescope comics

The Pandora = the one from "Pandora Hearts"

The One True Alice = the one from the Lewis Carroll book and every single other adaptation.

I like Alice Kingsleigh the best.

Alice didn't love the hatter.
KahlanAmnell123 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
In the original she did :cries:
NamelessSaint Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Professional Writer
In Carroll's books? No she didn't.

Can I just ask why you think (from the other comments as well) this couple is so wrong? You know here they are closer in age, and in other pieces which you see him with the big nose the artist of the orignal piece wrote that he is 20 something while she is 18-19 she just added white hair to suit him.

Johnny Depp said in an interview he thought they were more like 'brother and sister' and I was like bulls***, Hatter saying "Why is it you are always too small or too tall" sounded to me like "I want to kiss you," and also when he was spazzing out when she was her normal size, he even appeared to be looking at her chest area saying "the size is perfect!" XD He obviously loved her, but she probably thought of him as just a friend.

Anyway, I reeeaallly love the sepia tones and how this has an antique feel to it. Tarrant actually looks handsome and great detail in the hands!!

Its so pretty^^ And OMG I know they couldve at least hugged! She doesnt even hestitate on drinking the blood. why alice?! why?!
depplosion Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Wow! What a wonderful illustration! It's so colourful and full of detail and emotion! This is really beautiful <3.

And I COMPLETELY agree with you. At the end, he was totally the Sad Hatter, and it was all her fault ;_;. I wanted to hug him so badly to make him feel better! Poor thing <3.
BucklesInTheSun Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2010
Gorgeous! I feel like I'm looking at an old sketchbook or a beeswax glaze with that lovely amber and sepia background.

Despite it's beauty, Alice's feelings are really handled awfully through most of the movie though--- like, despite knowing all Underland is very much real and that the reason everything went to heck last time was because she didn't stay and do her duty, she'd rather go back and be miserable and rich. It's an awful, shallow message that ultimately made me feel cheated. She wouldn't have had to BE with the Hatter necessarily (although cute) but she should have stayed and done right by the people she abandoned and left to die as a child.

You were not the only one! I wanted to throw my popcorn at the screen!
Oh my God
I love the colours in this! What program do you use to colour? (I use Corel Painter 11 myself... But I still fail. D'8 )
And how long would you say it takes you to compose a piece like this?

It's just great, Rory. Fantastic job!
lilarcher Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
yay! i agree with you!

Gorgeous is not a strong enough word to describe this. Absolutely fantastic. <3

NO! I was doing the same thing! WHAT THE HELL!?! GR! I just got done watching it again. I was sooo mad!

But this is beautiful. I always thought that line was kinda heartbreaking. *sniff* poor Hatter

adriana-cullen Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2010
YES! I was so waiting for a hug or kiss, but nada! ALICE!! YOU BUTTHEAD! I feel exactly the same as you do! I was growling in my seat.
tenderheartedthorn Featured By Owner May 22, 2010

You're art is so lovely!
Go read the original screenplay for the film, Tarrand gives her not one but TWO passionate kisses before she leaves.

MAD HATTER: Oh Frabjous Day! Callou! Callayl
He bursts into an enthusiastic dance of unbridled joy.
ALICE: What's he doing?
CHESHIRE CAT: Futterwacken.
At the end of his dance, the Hatter grabs Alice and kisses her passionately.
Chessur puts a comforting arm around the disappointed Mallymkun.

Then later

She drinks the potion, shuddering at the taste.
MAD HATTER: You won't remember me.
ALICE: I will!
He abruptly kisses her one last time. He whispers.
MAD HATTER: Fairfarren, Alice.
ALICE: Fairfarren, Tarrant.

then WHAT THE HELL they didn't do it?!?!?!!!!! whyyyyyyyyyyyyy????????? ='(((((((((((( words cannott express my frustration!
artemisrox Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2010
I'm gonna pretend it happened in my head, they left so much ust between the characters in the film and the two of them were so sweet, it may as well have happened off screen! *desperate*

*dies from awesomeness*

I've been WAITING for people to start doing romantic images of these two. This is the best I've seen yet. All the loose sketchiness and vivid colors really play up the "we're all insane" feel of the film. iLOVE.
KitsuneBabe808 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2010
The intensity of the colors and value are my most favorite.

The hatter and Alice doesn't hurt either <3
Melesifant Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2010
I'm holding out hope they left it open for a sequal where alice comes back and they live happily ever after!
imouttahideas Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2010
Tarrant's face looks so passionately needy, I love it. This is very well-done!

Just the emotion I was aiming for, Thank you!
TrilleDiabolo Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Trust me, I shook my fist at the movie various times, wishing that Hatter would just gently cradle Alice in his grasp and...kiss her! XD
