Malacandra by boat by rebel-penguin Malacandra by boat by rebel-penguin
A piece inspired by the book "Out of the silent planet" by C.S. Lewis. Not totally happy with the Hross character, yes he's supposed to look like a big otter but wanted to make him somehow more alien. Anyway, might try a few more of these in the future, see what i can come up with, there's deffinatly not enough fan art for this great book series. Enjoy :D

O.O Splendiferous!! When I saw this, the first thing that popped into my head: they ought to make an animated film for Out of the Silent Planet!!! This style suits it beautifully, though I wasn't expecting it-- so clean and whimsical and pleasantly exaggerated. Wonderful work!

Oh wow, this is such an absolute lovely style and use of imagery! Very beautiful colors and stylization. I love how you drew the waves in the little peaks as they were described in the book.

The Hross (Hyoi wasn't it?)came out quite well I think. You gave a really interesting interpretation to them. I like the two-tones of his fur and the large hands.

I most certainly agree, there should be more fan art for the trilogy. :XD:

fantastic! as you said, definitely not enough artwork for this series out there... and I do love the design for - what was his name - Hyoi (?) I'll have to read this again... it's been awhile. Only recently bought Perelandra. And I have to say it - the background reminds me of Genndy Tartakovsky.

Honestly, the colors fit amazingly well, as well as the design for both Hyoi and Dr. Ransom. I rather like looking at the hross design you've done. You should do more on The Space Trilogy!

WOWW DUDE that looks amazing. I absolutely love your art, its amazing how you do this kind of stuff in flash, to me it looks really proffesional, and I dont even know what the book is about but I think now I wanna read it. I'd love to do flash stuff like you but, I have one question though....Do you use a tablet or do you use the mouse???
