I was on Luxology's site earlier, the makers of Modo a 3D modelling package. I was blown away by this work by a UK artist named Matt Painter. His Gremlins pics are amazingly close to the puppets made by Chris Walas for the first Gremlins film, his picture of them in the cinema looks like it might have come straight from the film, you can almost hear the gremlins laughing in this pic. Check out this superb turn around of his Gremlins model, truly amazing stuff.Gremlin Turntable Mov
His E.T model is equally fabulous, so much like the one from the film, again check out his turnaround of the model here E.T. Turntable Mov
I've mentioned a few times on this blog about how crap the CG Jabba the Hutt is in both it's incarnations in the Star Wars: Special Editions, ILM should have hired this guy !
Visit Matt's site here for his other super work http://www.matt-painter.co.uk/
Cheers Matt for letting me post this up.
