There are a few movies that inspired me in my journey to becoming a Concept Artist and The dark Crystal is certainly one of them. Its fantastical magical world is almost a blueprint into creating a perfect world for a fantasy story
The core of the story (as with many stories that deal with adventure) is the hero's journey. Its a classic tale and its brilliantly adapted within the world of the dark crystal.
A Journey it is!
So I ended up drawing the two brave Gelfling and Fizzgig, traveling on the backs a pair of Landstriders headed towards the Castle of the Crystal, where destiny shall be fulfilled.
