Alice in Wonderland

I received for this illustration the CG Choice Award by the website In my opinion , the CG choice Award is the biggest, more valuable and more difficult prize to obtain in digital painting or illustration. It's a kind of achievement to receive it after submitting regularly my work on it since 2005 , and I'm really honoured to now being displayed on the Choice Gallery at CGTalk.

And I have another reason to feel honoured ; I'm the first awarded with using only Open-source on Linux. This openness and recognition from the professional world of digital painting is really valuable for my work with Free/Libre Open Sources Softwares on Linux.

Thousand thanks CGsociety !

Excellent work. The style and colors remind me of the original Sam & Max series by LucasArts. I love the amount of details.

Where/how did you come up with the grids seen in the bonus (Alchemy plugin perhaps?)?

Absolutely fantastic piece! Well deserved CG Award!

Fantastic DVD as well, so many valuable tips. It's truly inspiring watching all the WIP videos also!

I too am curious about the grids. The WIP thread mentions the grids are done in blender. Were they just rendered out in blender then overlayed on the Alchemy piece in Gimp?

Many thanks for the feedbacks ! I'm really happy for the Award.

For Juho and Tim about the grid ; it's a blender grid rendered with a wireframe material and a node to fisheye the result.

But you can do it more simply with Gimp and the filter ( Grid / Inflate I guess ) . I did it with Blender cause I was experimenting. When the grid was done, I cutted and paste some element in Gimp using layer over the Alchemy drawing.
