Hatter: cardinal by lily-fox Hatter: cardinal by lily-fox
Reginald, dapper as hell.

Iíve drawn Briannaís Reggie Theophilus a lot, and usually in outfits and mannerisms totally contrary to his natural character. Heís a goofball, he favors an orange tailcoat, he doesnít like to go without his hat, he has the attention span of hey look a butterfly. I like to put him in chic coats and muted tones and mess with his hairdo and give him solid focus, and I hope that, while Iím straying from Briís canon a LOT, itís obvious that itís my little love letter to a great character.

Your freewheeling creativity with him is why we love you! We'd still love to have you on the art team for WCMI now that Brianna can't draw for the comic (she is still involved behind the scenes though.) We have four other artists but your skills are profoundly unique and would be a huge boon for the comic. It will be relaunching on Tumblr soon. Contact me if you ever want to join the team, even if it's just for one or two segments. We'll even let you put Reg in different casual outfits just for fun...I've always wanted to change up his wardrobe a bit anyway! :)

I am obsessed with the lines you used to make his cheeks flushed. It may not be healthy.

Is it odd that I find his cheekbones and sideburns so appealing? They make me flustered for some reason! And I love your use of the red...wish I could find gloves that red! I'd be sporting them all the time, especially with the crazy Texas winter right now that's more cold than it has been usually... :)

Not odd at all! They are very symmetrical and classically masculine features! I find them also to be incredibly attractive!

THOSE GREEN EYES. Were they always green? Somehow I was thinking they were typically blue? GREEN IS BETTER.

I love this; it's so magnificently wintery! The birch trees add the perfect background, and I love the pop of red in his gloves and his tie and the feather in his coat. You really do a marvelous job with Reggie's character and look; your style for him is a nice departure from his original look, like you said, but it really works for him. And I have a sneaking suspicion that dapper or no, Reggie would still happily throw a snowball at you or dance in the rain, if given the chance. ;)

Oh and Bri and I decided that if he'd looked like this when he and Alice went to the spring dance in WCMI she would have jumped him in the carriage on the way there.

This doesn't feel like the first time you've added feathers to Reggie, but it's still really cool.

It's not! Remember that one I did of him with the slick David Bowie hair and grey suit? He has a boutonniere made of feathers and a bird-of-paradise.

Every time you draw dapper-and-focusedly-sexy!Reggie I just imagine that he's about to cross his eyes and stick out his tongue. Or crack up laughing. Something like that.

Your Reggie is basically Bri's mixed with Mr. Darcy and every other dapper gentleman, ever. And while Bri's is so fun to read, your's is so fun to look at. Ooh baby.

Squee! More Hatter :D

Your Reggie is always so damn sexy!

Maybe it's a combination of the ponytail, the look in his eyes, and his dapper clothes, but when I just had another look at him he gave me a random vampire vibe. Specifically, an Anne Rice vampire. Totally random, but my brain works in weird ways.

I can see how you would go vampire, but I was thinking more of a Sherlock Holmes villain... with a little bit of Batman villain craziness.

Which now has my brain in the Star Trek holodeck version of Sherlock Holmes with crazy Moriarty running around on the Enterprise.

I feel like Reggie would not last long as a vampire. He'd be chasing squirrels in the early morning, and bam! Crispier than a potato chip.

Ha! I can totally see that happening. Or, him trying so hard to be the suave, seductive vampire and then ruining the effect entirely by tripping or something.
