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.
Order here:

Edit: Many thanks to :iconphoenixleo: and :iconarchann: for the DD, much appreciated!

LOL for a second I thought you named it Alice...I was like, "looks more like a Britney to me" lol. Nice work.

You've done an amazing job on really making the Jabberwock vicious in the amount of time he was in. :)

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
