More peeks at my first retrospective book with Titan Publishers.
I enjoyed working as a concept designer with director Michael Apted on the third Narnia film, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader immensely. We connected right away with a visual direction. In the early script (which kept changing) a character called the Green Witch lived in an underwater castle beneath the sea and was enslaving the Narnians using a mystical serpent.
I worked heavily on concept designs for many of the Green Witch scenes which included different parts of the castle. I especially enjoyed designing her throne. Here is one version of what it might have looked like if this part of the script had not been tossed out altogether.
More of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader art will be seen in, The Art of Greg Spalenka: Visions from the Mind’s Eye to be released in July 2014, at the San Diego Comic Con.
