Back to wonderland.

This is my homage to Hobbes. Those in the know should recognize it.

I had fun with the last panel: all the clothing clinging as tightly as they can. Reminded me of animals; how a dog leans against your legs, sitting as tightly as possible next to you, as if to stake a claim.

Inspiration for that last panel was a hamster. His heart beats rapidly, his breath shallow, like that of a terrified hamster being batted about in the deadly paws of a kittah. It's poetic if you don't think about it.

For those interested, I'm posting the WIP for this in my scraps. I sent it to :iconthemightypegasus: for a brief critique prior posting. Notice any diff?
Here's that [link]

So he's sitting on the sidewalk wearing only a skirt, socks and shoes.

Up between the ' P' and the 'O' in panel 2, there is a piece of clothing with stripes on.
Is it a smaller, subtler homage to Hobbes? Besides that, what is it really?
Otherwise, it also looks like Tigger's head facing away xP

Ah, not to burst your bubble but that's the top half of the Sailor Uniform. ^^ Homage aside, that part was coincidental.

On another note, Noah's hair and that band part of the outfit fit him like a glove.
