wrapped with love by ebas wrapped with love by ebas
this is the final version of the wonderland xmas special i just posted the layout for....

this is the first attempt...my editor said he wanted a "playful" cover and i did so on the initial version...

[link]

and colored by the amazingly talented steve firchow

[link]

but as u can see i took that idea and tossed it in the garbage...if i wouldve went with that one....i wouldve felt i had let myself down...it just didnt feel right the way it was...not only was it too goofy and not in keeping with "grim" in grim fairy tails...plus i dont get to draw darker covers very often...

i went with my gut on this one...after i woke up the next morning and looked at the layout again i (honestly) hit my forehead in frustration cause i had waisted all that time drawing this layout i wasnt going to even use....blah..

i wanted a skinny lanky hatter and in the thumb nail ( litterally about 2 inches by 2 1/2 inches)...i captured his essance...so i tried to capture it again the second time around...

he now has a much stronger stance and creepier...and the whole point of this concept was her being bound and tied up...so why was she surprised and him so goofy looking...now she looks like she's given up on hope and in a trance and he's going to have his way with her...

i moved the bow of the ribbon up to her jubblies cause my perverted mind wanted to have more skin showing down south..nobody in comics does that......... and i knew i could get away with it...so i say why not...plus it leads ur eye bettter

her stance is changed too... cause b4, it felt like she was struggling...but had a suprised look which didnt go...now its sexy and matches her expression of giving up better....and now that her knee's are together i had her in the ground....which is damn cool...makes no sense really but what ever...she's naked ; )

the robbon's that are going away from her body are suppose to resemble the shape of an xmas tree...not sure anybody would see that...but i tried

i wanted wonderland style everything..from the concept, feel and to the candy canes...even the hill in the background is an homage to tim burton...i like the look of the candy canes....as if they are alive....but with wonderland patterns on them

him standing on the pile of gifts is also symbolism...it raises him higher than her to give him more power over her...plus its a grinch like ambiance of him having stolen xmas....

the candy cains really helped establish a lot of depth here...the get bigger as they get closer to the camera and further down as well...and i put a few in between the ribbon strands to define the plains more...

the thing above her head is my fav part...i think it very true to the disney wonderland cartoon

for those of u who liked the first layout better..."sticks out tongue" cause im drawing covers and not u.... ; )

still no ass....sniff...go ass

i say again

GO ASS

AND THONGS!!!

Missile... toe! HAHA! And can I have that for Christmas? I've been very naughty, and I think I deserve such a present!

Wonderfully done and comically morbid and sexy, all in one!
