Don't Drink Alice!
Another addition to the Not Quite Alice series (which admittedly became a series on its own will, and not by any foreplanning of my own).  This time, it's Not Alice shrunk in size, climbing a ladder up to retrieve the drinks.  One of which will grow her in size, or shrink her.  Once again the signs on the Lamp Post warn away from it, but it seems like she's making her own choice.  

Strangely, this looks really....bright green on the DA app.

Anyway, so here, Not Alice is climbing the ladder.  

Extract (a fancy word here to merely refer to the extract from the scene I'm imagining in my head):
She climbed the ladder, even though she had read the sign.  It was probably obvious that of all things, she shouldn't be even thinking of drinking either bottle. Her mother always warned her, if she didn't know what it was, couldn't see the colour of the liquid in the bottle, and was given it by a stranger, she should not think of drinking it at all.  But there was one problem.  Not Alice was still very small, too small to return home, a fairy at most.  What harm could it bring?  If the signs all over were any indication, then she would either grow bigger or shrink smaller.  THe question was, which bottle was the right bottle?

The others:
Which Way Alice
Where's The Key Alice

FYI I am not abandoning this project, it's just on temporary hiatus.  It seems I have burnt out my inspiration and desire to compose the minor arcana.  Everything looks unpleasant and gross.  So I decided to put it on hold until I get more inspired.  It's a big series after all.  Not to mention, I'm not happy with the Page of Cups and the Queen of Cups I've already finished.

On the other hand, I have been trying some other things.  Truthfully I didn't want to do another pisces so soon, but in the end, it seems to be what I did.  This time though, it's a photomanipulation concept.  Unfortunately, I feel like I it could be reworked, yet at the same time I kind of like what I've done.  But yes!  That's the update for now!

Art for me is something I only do in my free time. I admire the works that people create, the meanings behind the works created, and the effort artists put into creating them. I usually prefer using a fineliner only to create many interesting effects but I also highly enjoy working in photoshop designing and experimenting with layers upon layers to create different effects.
