Under the Blossoms

I guess everyone is a bit exhausted from Halloween parties and trick-or-treating so for today’s posting, I have decided to post this picture instead of beginning a new lesson. This is one of Diyanah’s traditional media portraits, only this time she used water based markers and not watercolour. Enjoy!

This is her description of the drawing:

“This is my depiction of the Lewis Carrol characters, Alice and the Cheshire Cat. In my spin-off fiction, which I am still writing from time to time, the Cheshire Cat grows affectionate towards the heroine, Ellis, though she is unaware of it. I was in the mood to draw a romantic picture of both of them. Notice that only the tree they are sitting under blooms cherry blossoms while the other trees in the background are still the same green and autumn colours. I’ve never seen a cherry tree in real life; only on television and in stories but I do believe they are beautiful :)

These are actually her original comic characters but dressed up as her favourite monsters from famous movies. Below is her description, in case you might not remember who the characters are.
