That Mocking Grin by SweetxinsanityxSarah


Cat in the Madness

A wide never-ending grin that stays when it's
owner is gone,
Slitted yellow eyes filled with madness at
the lack of dawn.

Skin stretched taut over lean ribs with
many jagged scars,
A ragged ear, a silver ring gleaming
like the stars.

He knows not bravery, preferring caution
and his life,
His insane smile remains unchanged by
Wonderland's strife.

His cryptic answers only serve to madden
and confuse,
He takes high risks and stakes, but never
does he lose.

He fades into view at your beck and call,
Explaining blades, cards, croquet hammers
and balls.

Other times he comes when danger is not
Laughing at your worries with an accented

His voice puzzels all; his patient rhyming
makes one snarl,
He talks of death and treachery, makes lies
into moral.

A last swish of his tail and he vanishes
with a crazed leer.

"Be careful my dear...for we're all mad

~Poem by Raija Darknight of

Weeee mah first Cheshire drawing~! =3
I must say, it killed me, but it was worth it.
(Soo..many...tattoos! X____x lskjfdslkfs!)

But yeah, I was inspired to draw this peice when I saw one of the original concept sketches of Cheshire from Amercian Mcgee's Alice; and I thought "He doesnt look right. Too fluffy in the face." So I drew my own version of the pose with the final version they chose for AMA and Madness returns. Gotta say, this version looks much better; dont ya agree?

(This is the concept sketch ^)

The ribs and tattoos were enough to kill me, but what really irked me were the ears. First I drew em too big, then too small, etc. Finally after the fifth try, they came out just to my liking. And after that chore was done...the coloring process came..oi vey. X-x
Marker for the eyes, pen for the tattoos, and grey and tan for the fur and teeth, red and brown on the nose...and I thought the disney one was complex in colours! xD

But anywhos, do enjoy this wicked lil kitty, and tred cautiously in mah Wonderland or be gobbled up by the Jabberwock! x3

(Hmmm, might make this into a shirt, think that sounds like a good idear guys? =3)

SweetxinsanityxSarahDont give me credit for the pose or grin, that came from the concept sketch. I just drew the Madness returns/final AMA version in that pose. xP
