    Well, here's a "grown up" version of the classic Alice from the Wonderland series.

    Go down the Rabbit Hole

    Lovely! :)


    EDIT: One idea for future Victorian females you may wish to make, could be to make them "courtesy" instead of bow? :)

    Makes me want to go play croquet. In ways, the blunt force of the mallet may be more deadly than the dagger! Great job Hikaro!*

    * The radioactive green background is a nice change from the magenta (on the eyes that is). :)

    The reason I ended up using the Green BG (and will likely be using it in the future on certain units) is that when you have a unit with bright-red items/accessories, there is a tendency for the brighter shades of Red to be mistaken for some of the BG color by my paint program when it applies the palette, so I ended up with pinkish spots on the sword and her tights... By simply re-mapping the shadow colors (all I did was go into the PaintShop Pro palette editing tool and set the "hue" to, IIRC, 83) to green, and re-rendering with a suitably green BG, I was able to completely eliminate the problem... I also ended up using this technique with my General Beatrix unit and at least one other as of yet unreleased unit that I made recently to solve palette issues.

    In the future, if I end up doing a unit that has a lot of red (or maybe even one that uses Red as its civ-coloring), I'm going to set the BG to straight Green (RGB = 0,255,0) from the get-go so I don't end up having to re-render the entire unit after finding palette bugs when rendering on a magenta BG.

    Ouch. You missed a tremendous opportunity for the fidget; she should have played croquet.

    Hello Alice. Thank you, Hikaro, for filling a much needed-to-be-filled hole in our unit lines, which have presumed an Alice from the first. Thanks for all the time you put into it, and for putting up with our kibbitzing.

    I was about to say, that should be "curtsy', but when I looked it up, the spelling of it is also correct. It is odd to see a girl in a pinafore bow, I'd have to admit.
