    The Dark Crystal

    I was watching The Dark Crystal the other day and was inspired to do something with Augra in it. I came up with this after a few sketches.... hope it does the movie justice.

    The Dark Crystal

    On a side note, I'm not too happy with my version of Jen.... but oh well, better luck next time.

    good artwork. There's a book of concept art for the dark crystal and the world it was set in and there's some really amazing stuff in it, not only in the form of incredibly creative and beautiful art, but also in the unique and fascinating mythology and background history set up for it. I'm afraid I don't remember what it's called, but perhaps you've heard of it already.

    Hey Brutillus,

    Yeah I have that book... it's called The World of The Dark Crystal. Illustrated by a great artist, Brian Froud. He is also the artist that has illustrated the Good Faries Bad Faries book as well as several other books of that nature. Thanks for the comments.... I'm glad you like it.

    Here ya go! Sorry if they're a little fuzzy... the book wouldn't fit on my scanner... anyhow... For those who don't know, this is concept art for the Jim Henson movie The Dark Crystal. All artwork below is done by Brian Froud.
