Alice - Jabberwocky by michaelkutsche Alice - Jabberwocky by michaelkutsche
Final design of the Jabberwocky for Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland".

I highly recommend the Art of Alice book "Alice in Wonderland: A Visual Companion", it's 256 pages packed with concept art and behind the scenes photos from the movie.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-06-10
Alice - Jabberwocky by *michaelkutsche shows us the brilliant creature that Alice must face with stunning details, with the beast thrashing about with jaws open to ensnare anyone who dares come forward! The expression of a true monster! Be sure to check out this deviant's excellent gallery! ( Suggested by phoenixleo and Featured by archanN )

Behold, the Jabberwocky, the fearsome demon, the most feared, the dark king of the shadows of Wonderland. This is incredible! Good job on this :D

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

‘Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!’

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought –
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One two! One two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

‘And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe. :excited:   and     Run Boy, Run - Emote

I love how the Jabberwock turned out! He's always been one of my favorite animals/characters from Alice in Wonderland (second only to the Cheshire Cat xD ).

such an important character and he wasn't even used right. :(

Zenescope comics seem to be the only ones to use him right.

Jabberwocky is a God. "The" God Of Wonderland

I LOVED the Jabberwocky when I first saw him and this is just an amazing work on him. I love how he's posed and how his tail is coiled around the tree.

The Jabberwocky is to me the dark side of Wonderland. It represents, in my mind, the fact that a dream can quickly turn to terror. It isn't a dragon. It's the Jabberwocky, Wonderland's king of terror.

Lewis also used the word "slithy." Well, in your picture I think you got some pretty good slithy going on.... ! Thanks for sharing!
