I was so excited about my Mad Hatter that I had to post it even though I am not even close to being done with it.

Here it be....






Any suggestions on what to add or fix?

Looking great Smiley Only thing that looks a bit off to me is that there's no shadow in his mouth. It's got less depth than everything else. It's as if his tongue is attached to his lips, because there's a lot of light on the entire tongue instead of gradually getting darker further back... Mind you, I might be pointing out the wrong aspects of why the tongue is off, because I'm not an artist, it just strikes me as disconnected from the perspective Smiley

All in all it's a really cool painting though, I love the look of the cups in particular, and the swirly blue steam(?)

Thanks everyone!! You're all very sweet

Thanks, I think you're right, I hadn't really looked at the tongue and I should add some shading in it, THANKS  Grin

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

Looks really good.  The one thing that I would fix is the hat brim.  It looks thin, to the point that you have to look closely to see that there is one.  Maybe just make the green a little thicker.

And the tongue definitely needs some shading.

But, it's a great painting, all in all.  Excellent work.

Thanks Pinokeeo, you're right, the brim does look strange... I'll change it a bit

Fantastic work! Your stylization is excellent.

The one area that looks slightly strange to me is his arm. It looks like there's a notch in it towards his elbow where it suddenly slims down quite a bit. I can't quite tell what's going on there because I can't get a closer look, but that was the one thing that caught my eye.

PookyLaRoo,  Thanks for the lovely comment!

Yeah, that was supposed to be his elbow but now that I look at it, it looks strange and his elbow should be lower down anyway so I need to remove the "notch".  Thanks  Grin

that is so colorful and exciting I believe you can sell that or it would look very nice hanging on a wall in a room.
