Chronicles of Narnia
These sketches are from The Chronicles of Narnia "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." The top composition sketch is from the attack of the Sea Serpent. The monster wraps itself around the ship in an attempt to break it in two. The crew rushes to push it's wet body over the side before it draws the knot tight. Caspian orders the decorative tail of the vessel cut off so the monster will lose it's grip. (still a lot of problems with the comp but this is a start)
The second drawing is an idea sketch for the ship based on the book's description.
And this menacing lady is The Green Witch from the Chronicles of Narnia "The Silver Chair." She seems a bit older than I intended (her appearance is supposed to be completely deceptive so I wanted her a little younger) and I'm afraid I like the dress sketches above better than the one I gave her. (Sheesh!)
Here she prepares to throw magic powder onto the fire in order to enchant prince Rilian and his companions. It is a small part of a larger illustration. I hope to post a more complete drawing soon.
