Alice in Wonderland-Red Queen

In 2008 I had the opportunity to do a lot of the character designs for Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland"

I was very lucky to meet Tim Burton as well as Ken Ralston from Sony Imageworks, I've been working directly at the film set in Plymouth and later on at the set in LA, it's been a great time working for one of my favourite directors.
Seeing Johnny Depp's performance was also mindblowing, he's amazingly talented.

Since some images have already been released (…) , including an image of Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, I thought it could be nice to show the initial concept art.
I had a very quick sketch by Tim Burton to start with, the final costume that Helena is wearing is Colleen Atwood's work, she's a fantastic academy award-winning costume designer.
The artwork is completely done with Corel Painter X.

You all did such a wonderful job! I watched the movie a few times and I love it every single time, from the acting, the costumes, the sets, the animation. Between Tim Burton's version and the original Disney version, this was definitely my favourite.
