The Cheshire Cat by chandito The Cheshire Cat by chandito
My inspiration for this drawing was the trailer for the new Alice in Wonderland movie by Tim Burton. This is how the cat will look in the movie and they really captured that look that makes this character so famous. I've always been a fan of this movie, especially because of the bizarre characters. One of the most bizarre and creepiest has to be the Cheshire cat. His mischievous grin and personality screams out insanity. This drawing took me about 10 hours to complete and was done all with pencil. You can watch a video of me drawing this from start to finish by going here [link] . Click on the image on the left side that says 'Watch Movie'. Well i hope you like this one, again this one is a bit different from my usual work.

His lopsided grin makes him that much more... disturbing. Very well done!

If you dont mind me asking, what type of paper do you use?, and how do you get your lines so sharp?, that what i have trouble with the most when drawing hair.

very cool, I though it was a photograph at first and some kind of deformity, like those photographers who take pictures of dead things...this is excellent, its funny because I was thinking of doing the catapilar, but in a more creature-us state. I didn't even know there was a movie coming out.

watching the movie of this drawing was awesome!.. it makes me want to try setting up my camera and do a drawing of my own, just to see how it looks

i'm surprised you use a leadholder for your drawings! and brilliant idea to use to curve for a barrier.
