Having an artist block, so I had to come up with something I hadn't done before to snap out of it.
Even so, I'm not entirely sure if I am out of it. I guess this is what happens when you're so inspired by a certain TV show and you churn a lot of fan art and then it goes from being the best thing to being the worst thing. :/
Anyway, for this one I just wanted to draw a female character I liked playing the role of a character from selected literature. In here, Lois Lane is 'Alice' from Lewis Carroll's Alice and Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass. Irony is that Gotham is far from being a wonderland unless you're insane, have issues, or grew up there. Good thing that like the book (or the Disney cartoon), she probably just wakes up in the end of this all, just like Alice does.
Alice-> Lois Lane. The Alice of the story since it fits with her job as a reporter. In here, she chases a drug lord who somehow leads her into Gotham.
The White Rabbit-> No, the white haired woman down there is not Storm. There really is a villainous character from Metropolis called the White Rabbit.
The Cheshire Cat-> Selina Kyle aka Catwoman. Well, who else?
The Mad Hatter/The March Hare-> Joker and Harley Quinn
The Caterpillar-> Poison Ivy. I really like how her dress came out and her 1940s inspired hairstyle.
The Red Queen -> Now the Red King, played by resident crime lord Carmine 'The Roman' Falcone
The Dodo-> The Penguin
The White Queen-> In here it's the The White King; second crime lord Salvatore 'The Boss' Maroni
Tweedledee/Tweedledumb-> They actually exist in the old comics but I didn't want to be too direct so- Sugar and Spice from the old movie. I had to think of two twin type characters who couldn't exist without the other. And who didn't have much personality.
The Jabberwocky-> the Pandora's box of inner turmoil. I get why people like him but I actually prefer the stories he's in than the actual character himself.
I had second thoughts about doing this. There's already an over-saturation of Batman everywhere to begin with, and plenty enough fandom for Gotham and its crew...but I finally had an idea that just wouldn't go away. I lost interest drawing this several times but I'm glad I finished because of how it came out.
