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.


Slave Cart thumbnail sketches....







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.




Long shell torches...




Initial sketches for long shell torches...
Hand held shell torches...

Gumpas, the slave lords chair...

Plinth in Gumpas's hall...



Various drawings for chair and tables for outside Lone Island shops...















Dawn Treader Concept Art 4 - Map Room - Boats

More concepts from the Dawn Treader!

Compass with built in sextant...


Hand held torches for when they arrive at the Lone Islands...



These were early rough sketches done for the map table in the State Room. They were based on an Orrery.


...and the final map table design which is much simpler.


Chair Designs for the Map Room table...


Map Room Stools...



Hanging candle lights for above map table. Opal semi transparent shells used for glass...



Canvas cover and painted deck designs...




Excursion boat designs











Initially the 7 Lords faces were to be carved into wooden plaques and hung around the cabin wall. I painted one of these concepts for each of the 7 Lords. In the end though, sketches of the Lords were used instead which were done by someone else...

Dawn Treader Concept Art 3 - State Room Cont...

The bed (Caspian's) that Lucy sleeps in was a rollercoaster to design but ironically ended up being quite simple. Below are just a few of the designs I did for the bed under the direction of Barry Robison.
The final design is not mine and was given to me afterwards so I could paint the curtains and bedspread etc. It's a pity they had to go with a cheaper option in the end as I think a few of these would have looked great.


The fantastic art on the State Room walls were all painted by Min Yum

The quilt below was based on a Victor Horta design, as was most of the Dawn Treader.




The bed can be seen here...
















Just a few of the corner bed designs... The curved side is due to the placement against the ships hull






And the much simpler final design... (only the finishings were painted my me)


Rigging!



Bosuns Chair...



And a few random bits. I did these on my first day at the studio.


I dont think any were used as props.
