 Tonight's post is from 'Men in Black 3'  - hope you don't mind if I hop around a bit as far as the previous postings go. I am currently sorting through and organizing all of my archives and I wanted to make sure that you all get to see some of this stuff while I have it out. This was supposed to be a small gun in the boot of Tommy Lee Jones for one scene - but it got cut....

Here's a couple more 'Eat Me' cakes from Alice in Wonderland that I forgot to post with the others. I believe they ended up using something very plain and understated in the end...

Here was the final version of the White Queen's telescope. It's only missing a minor modification - the 'scope unclips from the mount so that the Queen can allow the dog to look through it. Both of the images that I have posted here of the telescopes were modelled in Rhino and rendered in Softimage.

More from 'Alice in Wonderland'...This is the first variation I did of the White Queen's telescope - after doing a few very typical and rather boring 'scopes, I thought it might be cool to cut away the body with some art nouveau patterns exposing the optics inside. The actual prop came out quite nicely from what I saw....
The next day was designing cakes for 'Alice'. Again, I am using a photoshop brush that I love that simulates a black prismacolor pencil. Some of these are from specific reference and the 'D' one is really just a fancy Ding-Dong.....
Evening all!
 So the other day, someone reminds me that I had promised on my website to post some of my work from 'Alice in Wonderland' - so here's the beginning of a series of scratchings that I had done for the show. These bottles were my first assignment on the show and were a lot of fun to explore. I took a bit of time and built in Photoshop a brushed that behaved just like a black prismacolor pencil - my favorite traditional sketching media - and it ended up fooling a lot of people into thinking that I was working on paper....
