I love this image, but from my photographers eye it looks a little unbalanced. Because of the highly saturated colours that you have used on the right and in the centre of the painting, the left hand side ( the cat) loses some of it's impact. Perhaps if the blue in the eyes and the fur was very slightly darker, the overall image would be much easier on the eye. Mine anyhow ! :) The cat and the cup and saucer are stunning. The apparent simplicity of your work is misleading, because the amount of detail that you actually include is remarkable. Beautifully done :)
What do you think?

After all her adventures I am surprised that her dress isn't brown as well, so the hair is cool :)

I actually kind of like it when people take artistic liberty with Alice's appearance, because the actual Alice Liddell was a brunette! This is overall a really great painting. And the Cheshire cat is perfect.

"her name is Alice! she walks into the window through shapes and shadows. Aliiiice, and even though she's dreaming she's unlocked the meaning for you! " xD Shinedown xD i had to sing this xD

and yes i love that cat XD it's so awesome in the last movie OO owww....x. x3
now, to the drawing xD
i can only say you to train to draw that tea cup xD and the little plate (which name i do not recal...x3) cause the pattern is a really nice idea for it, though hard to do =P but it worths it x3 and her hands, i think u can try make them slimmer, thinner, more feminine not much to critique xD i like cheshire x3 how u draw the fur, not only in this drawing but so far all that i've seen that has fur in it i love it x3, the eyes, the teath, the nose...it's really awesome and well done x3
and it's all =P

Man o' man... is it the anniversary of "Alice in Wonderland" or what? Seems like everyone on deviantart is doing Alice in Wonderland drawings. Hmmmm...? Anyway, a red head is ALWAYS cool with me and the Cheshire Cat just looks deviously cool!

I think you caught the cat's smile pretty well. I haven't read the book, but this reminds me of it, in a way. It could be an illustration in the book, I think ^^ And, btw, the tea cup is amazing..!
