Alice in Wonderland, that is. Give us one (or more) of the characters or creatures in Lewis Carroll's world. You may use your own interpretation or use the original art from the book or use Disney's version, whatever you choose! The goal is to make a detailed character or creature from Alice in Wonderland or its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. Give him/her/it a pose!

References:

Final Entry:
  • Provide a single still render that showcases your entry
  • Must be rendered in Anim8or using either the scanline or ART renderers.

Post your progress, c&c, and/or final renders in this topic!

Deadline: Friday, June 26th, 2009

What will be judged:
The final entries will be judged based on the best looking character or creature from the Alice in Wonderland series. This will be a public poll.

Well I guess Im going to do this one as well. Im going to put my little suzuki on hold and put some work into this. As alot of us know this story from when we were much younger. So I have looked through the reference sites and I decided to go with a particular picture of the Mad Hatter. Should be fun and look for progress from me! Good luck every one!

Interesting topic, I'm going to have to have a go at this one. I'll be doing tweedledum and tweedledee. They're my least favorite characters but should be fun to model ;)

Hmm.... Interesting... I'll have a go at this. I'll look at the reference sites tomorrow. Got to go right now.

But does anyone have a good site for tutorials on the "anatomy" of people? I have a lot of trouble modeling realistic characters. Any help?
Thanks!

That's some fast work headwax, I like the last morphed render the best so far, good job!

3Dgeek11, the good thing is that if you can't get the hang of human anatomy, there's plenty of other creatures and unrealistic human characters to choose from.

Good luck to everyone else!

Ok, some basic concept sketch. I think that existing designs are overlooked so I want to come with something new. First I wanted to make a plenty of Cheshire Kittens :D but I couldn't manage to draw a face with evil smile and cute look at the same time. Then I tried a cat with human body wearing a suit, but that looked really strange. On this design I left only his head, slightly shaped as a human head. At the moment I'm planning to do floating head, paws and tail.
Unfortunately I probably won't be able to post anything until the next week. Tell me what you think about this design or how to improve it.

Reminds me of the Baron from a movie I saw before. If you do use the suit approach, I think his would be a good reference ;)

Your design looks pretty good, though I'd put more emphasis on the evil mouth!

As for designing Cheshire Kittens, just take a picture of a kitten and photoshop it a little ;)
