The Mad Hatter by Zeeksie The Mad Hatter by Zeeksie
Took some time to finish this piece. Couldn't help it but modifying it all over again.
The main inspiration source was the Mad Hatter that came from "American McGee's Alice" well, atleast his face characteristics.
I'll try to come up with a better comment next time, I haven't slept all night and I'm very tired now.
Anyway, hope you'll like it.

...Is that a Jack Skellington face on his chair? Neat!

Everytime I see this picture, I think this is what the Hatter from the McGee games looked like before the corruption of Wonderland; you captured the facial features exceptionally well, and the background of gears, as well as the color scheme, create an air of forboding, as if the Hatter is right on the verge of becoming the monster he is in the games, but not QUITE there yet.

The Dormouse is a nice touch, too.

Overall impression: rather wonderful!

Sincerely yours,
J.

You can say this was how the Mad Hatter in American McGee's Alice looked before he went completely over the edge and turned into steampunk cyborg! Great piece of art!

I guess this is what Hatter used to look like when Alice first met him before he became the tall clockwork automation of himself that we know now...

I like that he looks so similar to American McGee's Hatter, but this is like... before Alice went mad. He's still himself, he's still insane, but before everything got too far out.

Even if it is based on an "extreme" vision of the classic tale, I like that you had the self-control to keep him as the regular old Mad Hatter, who is a real character as is.

I just can't get over how much my OC is similar to American Mcgee's Mad Hatter. [link]
What can I say, I'm a fan of bigass top hats.
I hope to start playing the game soon. Again, GREAT work on this.
