The official deadline for submission to this contest was around last week. This week I mainly spent my time to go to the pre-premiere of Sintel in Amsterdam, a video about the team is posted on the website.
I hope you will like my vision of Alice in Wonderland !
Note : the complete WIP (in french) is readable here on the forum of www.3dvf.com
I received for this illustration the CG Choice Award by the website CGsociety.org. 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 2D awarded with Gimp / Mypaint / Alchemy 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 !
