Painting the Roses Red

Susanita's Little Gallery is having a "Sing that Movie!" exhibition and I chose Alice in Wonderland. I love Disney Animation and growing up with these movies it's a dream come true to be able to do art for the films.
I still have a lot to do with this piece. My daughter drew the picture below of the Queen of Hearts and, so far, this is my favorite drawing she has ever done. I used her work to help me decide to make the Queen for one of my characters. Before I started the finished Queen I sat down and did a mock example to make sure my idea would work in paper. Below is the preliminary Queen (she looks more like Fred Flintstone in a dress, haha).
