Alice Mitchell, water-skiing hottie by kiff57krocker Alice Mitchell, water-skiing hottie by kiff57krocker
This picture of Dennis the Menace's mom, Alice, was done back in 2005 when I wrote to Marcus Hamilton, the man who draws the Dennis the Menace daily strip and asked for a sketch of Alice water skiing. After receiving it, (it was a pencil sketch), I inked it and airbrushed the color. Came out pretty good, don't you think? I've kept it for years and now I'd like to share it with the Deviantart world.  At last, Alice gets some time away from her hyperactive son, Dennis and takes a much needed vacation to a tropical resort where she spends her first afternoon learning to water ski, and from the look on her face, one can see that she's is having a great time. (Medium: airbrush, pen and ink, watercolor and brush).

I like her polka dot bikini, it is one of my favorite type of mixed patterns and colors. Also, I like her hair, short and blond! I also like how the water is colored and the blue sky and clouds add some great touches to it as well. The woman apparently looks very hot, her body looks as it she could be a model. Nice use of color and great personalities and characteristics on the woman surfer.

Vision: Good!
Originality: Great!
Technique: Great!
Impact: A little better...

It is very good, keep up the good work. This is awesome, darlin'!

Amazing that the artist would draw you that and send it to you!


Amazing body on Dennis' Mom!

Yes, it is.  And I'm glad that it happened.  Unfortunately, it was a one-time-only.  My requests for other Alice drawings from Marcus Hamilton were turned down.  Still, I'm glad the coloring I did came out decently.  And I'm also glad that you like it.  Thank you for your comment.:D (Big Grin) :D (Big Grin)

Every once in a while, she has GOT to get away from Dennis!

How true.  And I can't think of a more appropriate summertime activity away from her hyperactive son than an afternoon of water-skiing in a tropical Club Med setting.  Thanks for your comment.:D (Big Grin)

Thank you kindly. A hottie like Alice Mitchell makes it that much easier.

I hope I can get some more comments on this pic. Alice doesn't look half bad and she is enjoying a sport that you may never see in the Dennis the Menace comic strip.

Thank you. It helps when the man who created Alice Mitchell, the same man who became a millionaire with his brainchild, Dennis the Menace, the late and truly great Hank Ketcham, may God rest his soul, made Alice a hottie to begin with. Enjoy.
