Redwall - Tea Time and Ale by chichapie Redwall - Tea Time and Ale by chichapie
My redwall favorites drinking tea and some under the influence of ale.

You may spot several perspective errors in both characters and background elements. The image wasn't planned out properly. Rather, it's something out of a whim.

This is more or less an experiment of color using only 3 hues.

::Edit:: fixed as much errors as possible (particularly Digs, that fat hare that looked too cartoony.) and added a variation to the lighting.

Wow, you're skilled. Really. :)

Hah, that looks wonderful, and a lot of fun. Despite all the hardships that Redwall faces, everyone there seems to be about that, at least most of the time. I love how Tria's in the foreground, and how Tagg is looming above them all. Tam seems to be hugging Doogy, and that's pretty funny. I think I can see who has had some ale. I also think I can even see Warbeak. :)

Otters were always my fave type RedWall characters.

You Redwallers, you think you are the center of the universe. You want peace put you are the one who start the wars. You make your enemies, by threatening them. 
General-Che-Young Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Do you even read the series? All the villains head to the places that are vulnerable and destroy everything and enslave innocents, and Redwall is there to stop it. They're very peaceful, but if the time comes to defend the innocent, they must. The only ones who do the threatening are the baddies.

Are you standing up for this series?
General-Che-Young Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Why do you care? 
sgtzpp33 Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2014
I should be asking why do you care about this book series.
General-Che-Young Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I care about the series because it was one of the books that really got me into reading when I was in elementary school.

If YOU don't care, then why are you bothering to post your hate on somebody's drawing they worked really hard on? 
sgtzpp33 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2014
Umad? Problem?

When you resort to shit phrases like that, it only reflects poorly on you. You may want to rethink your life choices if that is your go-to answer in "intelligent" conversation.

Wish I could recognize more of these characters. The only ones I could recognize fully are Tiria and Deyna. Is that Basil on the bottom left?

Not today. Today we face the enemies that are at our door and bring the fight to them! Today, we are cancelling the apocalypse!" - Matthias.

Aaah! That's amazing! I see the High Ruhlain, Racketty Tam and his side kick, Doogy Plumm, the Taggerung, and is that, Lord Brocktree in the background?
Knightraptor Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2013
I see Rakkety Tam Mcburl and Wild Doogy Plumm! :D Taggs! Tiria Wildlough...

...I am quickly learning redwall characters are hard to distinguish from each other!
Venishi Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Redwall! Awesome.
NativeFaery Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Good job, very good job. Though I think this is a bit rowdier then they actually have it haha. But I'm glad Tiria is in there, High Rhulain is my favorite book!
KeldrisUbelveba Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
This is great. I love the light and shadow colors
Dragondog2233 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

oh this brings me back to some of my lovely little kid days...I loved these books. still do, they are a great series. :D awesome drawing though. yay for being a little kid again!!!!!!!!!!!!
FoxyStig Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012  Student Filmographer
That otter's face in the top middle is golden! :P
LadyRiverwolf Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2012
Fantastic! I take it these are characters from different books, brought together in one image. Well, it says they're you're "redwall favourites", so I guess so. :)
I'll see this as the 'Sunny Slopes and Quiet Streams' where they must now live...
Even the slain deserve some free time to drink and reminisce on days gone by.
Excellent work. I love this!
chichapie Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I want to do another painting similar to the idea of this, this time including some villains :)
LovesHeartBreak Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I really only recognize Tiria Wildlough from High Rhulain, oh wait, is that.... queen Warbeak in the background from Redwall & Mattimeo? I'm not sure, oh, is that Rakkety Tam?!? I'm so confused. I LOVE IT, SO MUCH!

Your 'whims' are better than my best efforts...I love it!
ClockworkSerpent Featured By Owner May 11, 2012
I can't identify that backround badger, or the background hare near who I believe is the awesomely awesome Feldo.

Yay for Sparras with hoods.
chichapie Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
That Badger and Hare ain't anyone in particular :)
i-haz-a-doodle-plex Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2012  Student Filmographer
Basil would eat all those tea cakes if someone didn't stop him. :XD: I see him hiding down in the bottom left corner.
And I love the displeased look on Tagg's face.
Your use of color and shading is really interesting too. Lovely piece. :D
Roku4fire Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
Who are all the characters. I cannot reconise some of them.
my favorite is the otter is the bottom right corner. the heroin from High Rhulain right? been a while since i read it..
platypus12 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2012
Some of these characters look familiar.
Heretofour Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012
Another fantastic piece. I love the shadowing and some expressions are priceless.
MaroonHedgehog Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Is that good ol' Basil Stag Hare I see in the bottom left hand corner?


Well done!
chichapie Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Right o'

I love the contrasts in the nuances!
By the way, who that squirrel next to Deyna?
chichapie Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
That's Feldoh.

Ahh! Awesome stuff, by the way!

Just when I thought that those amazing tales were forgotten. I applaud you.
Maran-Zelde Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
I love the wild look of the drunk squirrels. I recognize only half of the characters, but that may be because it's been a few years since I've read most of the books. I just started reading The Sable Quean for the first time.
