What's this?

Maybe it's a future that never had become...
Or a dream of the deeply regretting man...
Maybe it's an alternative reality...
... unbroken promise...
... "turn left" (or turn right in this case)...

That's what would happened if he said "No" to his mother...
... or his family had never arrived...
... or any other thing had happened to show him all the responsibility of his actions...

It's an alternative.
It's some sort of a very sad picture that looks so happy.

-------------------------

So... this is my next "The Lorax" fanart.
Honestly, I'm not fully satisfied with it. I have used another type of colouring here comparing to my previous art and it seems not very good for me. But I hope you like it.
And also I failed again in picturing Pipsqueak. XP Sorry.

Oh! And a small edit here. This pic is inspirited by [link] =)

EDIT (22.04.2012): Some house datails added (when you work with a few screencaps you can miss someting =P).

Tools of the trade:
- "Faber-Castell" watercolor pencils, 12 colours;
- "Centropen" felt pens, 32 colours;
- A5 white paper sheet;
- some screencaps as a reference.

Characters (c) Dr. Seuss, Universal, Illumination Entertainment

This is amazing and I so thought that he should have said something to his mama when she said to chop down the trees to speed up production.

Something like, "You know mom, you're right. I am the head of this company, and as such I am going to keep my promise like I said and no we are not chopping down the trees! Just tell the twins to grab bigger chunks of the tufts off the trees ok and stop complaining! Now please go away, I'm busy here."  

See that's how he should have handled his mama in my opinion.

Ну, у меня немного другие - треугольные в сечении, и цветов только 12. Опять черный кончился. Нужно покупать теперь новые. Собственно, поэтому я Чернильнокрового Уанс-лера простым карандашом и рисую сейчас.

Eeee I love this!!! :love: I was actually thinking on the way home from work about what it would have been like for the Onceler if he never sold his thneed or if he'd just continued plucking the trees instead of killing them. :D He was so happy with the animals because they truly accepted him and wanted to be with him, unlike his family. You did a wonderful job capturing the joy he had with them when things were simple! :love: I love the character's interactions (Pipsqueak is so cute on his knee! :heart: and the card game breaking up is funny :giggle:) and how it shows a little story. :aww: Great attention to detail with the little bar-ba-loots and swammy swans! Also, it's gorgeously colored! :love:
