Dawn Treader Concept Art 5 - Lone Islands

Lone Islands



The tone for the Lone Islands was that of a neglected city overrun by slave traders. Being a fishing village, there was a huge ocean overtone.. bleached stone and driftwood, shells everywhere, carvings and patterns which all echoed the ocean in some way. I painted this to mainly show the use of tattered awnings in shop windows...

Slave Cart.


Initially the slave cart was to be decorated with shells and netting with driftwood for bars. It ended up being a lot simpler.

Orthographic drawings and a model was created as part of the development for this wagon but it proved a little too expensive in the end so a simpler version was used.
