Dark Alice by dholms Dark Alice by dholms
not many things embody the spirit of dA like a collaboration.
it's one of the things i'm most grateful for about dA.
i've been fortunate enough through dA to be part of such incredible
groups such as #resurgere and neosynthesis.
and through those groups been able to work with such talented notables as
`wroth, ~neosynthetic, `nighty, `epiphany,...to name a few.
not to mention other incredible talents such as *deep, ~terriblekim and
~kliklodesh.
i know i've probably forgotten a couple. my sincere apologies.
the fact is, i feel like everytime i upload an image at dA it's
a collaboration. with EVERYONE here.
i've absorbed so much here at deviantART.
i can honestly say that i'm a better artist because of it.
i thank you for that.
so anyway,...

my latest collaboration with the very gifted ~SeeThrou.
know i coulda done better. sorta rushed it for today. might tweak it
in the future.
also, forgive the craptastic scan. i really miss my old scanner at
west point.
among other things.

you guys be cool.
thanks Aaron for inspiration and allowing me to crap all over your
wonderful work. really would love to try it again sometime.

happy spirit day guys.

your faithful tool.

hey man. not a prob.
i WANT it to be recognized. i love sam. it's awesome that someone actually picked up on it. FINALLY. heh.
anyway, i just thought the cat needed to be inserted somewhere and figured it'd be a cool opportunity to
pimp my favorite artist once again. *shrug*
one day i'll probably get sued by sam.
but then i'll be able to say,...'i was sued by sam kieth! my favorite artist!'

thanks!!

thank you so much my friend.
i was checking out your gallery today and i feel we have some things in common.
i love you edgy style. your use of color. also, your unique perspective and sometimes twisted interpretation
of your subject matter.
i think it's the 'twisted' thing i relate too. heh.

Sick man. The color and charachtures are just above the bar. Glad to see you step out a bit from what you use to do. Not that it was bad but this is more colorful and really shows your drawing skill.

Wwwwwwow.. I am in love with this picture. The rough sketch prospect of the drawing really brings out the dark tone of it.
I also love the way you drew the Cheshire Cat. The grin really brings out his tricky personality.
I'm favoriting this! You've done me, and a lot of other people proud.
