Hatter25: morning by lily-fox Hatter25: morning by lily-fox
Next prompt in the Hatter25 challenge: "morning".

Grown-up Alice and her Hatter get their Sunday morning snuggle on. Tell me one thing that's better than sleeping in with your lover on a rainy morning in fresh sheets. And don't just go for world peace, I mean be creative.

A love note to the beautiful Silver Hatter, and props, as always, to :iconbri-chan:, for the inspiration.

This piece is awesome! I thought that if I ever saw something like this between these two, but I love this! So sweet and tender, and just terrific. Great work.

I dont think that I have ever truly gotten the chance to let you know how beautiful I think this piece is. Eesh! I have glanced at it so many times studying the way the freckles are laid out, the flowy hair and the look of peace on her face.

Great work!

This is that sleepy place, before I wake up all the way and notice the light coming in the window, slatted by the blinds. I live by the sea, so we hear seagulls when we wake. Sometimes a ship's horn will sound from the port... then an airplane flies over. I usually try to get up for breakfast but he hugs me tighter and I'm stuck-- I love him so that's okay :)

I wish you would do another version of this one. You're so good at drawing snuggles. I would love to see the rest of the room, and perhaps not quite so bright.

This is such a beautiful comment, I want to curl up in it. ^u^

I've done a couple other Hatter/Alice snuggling pieces: one morning and one evening.
LizAdeniji Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Mm, I've been having a sleepy snuggle morning again, too! I got up and made Sunday breakfast, opened the window, and piled myself into some cushions on the sofa. I love your drawings of the little moments.

all there is left for reggie to do for ruining the morning is to blow a rasberry on alice's belly
and then she's gonna pummel him with the pillow
and then he's gonna pummel her back with another pillow
and then we got an early in the morning naked pillowfight
Six-Foot-Two Featured By Owner May 10, 2012
this is really sweet! <3 (and can you imagine how ticklish that must be for Alice? eyuuhh!!! *shudder*) lol
Suzie-Guru Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012
You know, I know this is an oldie for you, but I just love this, wholeheartedly and purely love it. I love how splayed and tumbled Alice's hair is on the pillow, just how innocent an yet lovely her body looks curving around Reggie like that, his protective embrace of her, their expressions...your art just does a soul good, Ma'am.
sam123granger Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2012  Hobbyist Writer

The emotions and love radiate from this! You caught the moment wonderfully in this. You are a VERY talented artist.

WAKING UP...and spending the rest of the afternoon and into the night...rediscovering tastes and sensations with your lover (see the image of me and mine on my profile!)

getting a really good back massage from your lover on a warm summer's afternoon whilst lying in the hammock outside in his back garden. :D
mlpanda13 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Adding to the scenario, I think this part is better; seeing them wake up in your arms and watching their smile spread across their face
lily-fox Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2011
Oh, that is a good one.
mlpanda13 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you :3
Your art is simply amazing. I hope one day I can reach your skill level. It's simply incredible. How long have you been drawing?
lily-fox Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2011
You know, I think I've been drawing my whole life. Haven't been very good at it until recently (and still need SO much work), but yeah. Long as I can remember!
mlpanda13 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
:3 I've only gotten as far as I'm at right now recently, too, and I hope to improve to a level as high as yours. Seeing people like you on here... gives me something to strive towards. A goal. Thank you

Imagine the most high-pitched annoying voice you can think of now... SSSSQQQQUUUUUUUUIIIIIIEEEEE!!!!! now that thats over I think this is my favorite out of all the Alice+Hatter ones but i'm not sure.
NoJellyfish Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011
This is possibly one of the sexiest, tasteful, and heartwarming depictions of romance I have seen on the internet. It really captures the feel of laying in bed with your lover and slowly waking up with desire.

I also can't help but feel that Reggie is moving southwards in an effort to wake up Alice. But that may just be my dirty, dirty sex-deprived mind compensating for the last three months away from the boyfriend.

very good, although is it just me or does her stomach look a little thin? Might be me.

lily-fox Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010
Ahh, Reggie's not my character, so a print is out of the question. So sorry!

aww thats amazingg :D

So I've never once commented on a picture before, but I need to tell you that the first time I saw this picture, I literally gasped, and then my jaw dropped. I think I stared at it for a good 5 minutes the first time (probably three of those minutes were spent not realizing my mouth was hanging open).

In the past week I've come back to look at this picture more times that I'm willing to admit. You are truly phenomenal.

lily-fox Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2010
I'm so glad you like it! Even after years, I'm still really partial to this one. It feels good and sweet, and I'm happy you think so, too. C: Thanks for taking the time to tell me!
