More Early Black Cauldron

These design sketches of mine of The Horned King for The Black Cauldron are currently being offered at Heritage Auctions. They come from the collection of producer Joe Hale.
Black felt pen and Magic Markers, early 1980s.
I have always enjoyed working at this stage in production. Just imagining character concepts inspired by the story material. The movie was based on The Chronicles of Prydain books by Lloyd Alexander, and they are wonderful. With today's technology The Black Cauldron would make heck of a live action film.


  1. I love your sketches Andreas, this design are so wonderful it looks like The Lord of the Rings in the 1970s version, have you whatch it The Lord of the Rings.

  2. I really like those ones with the yellow eyes, they're really appealing!
    Elsewhere on the HA site, there are these Black Cauldron drawings which are attributed to Marc Davis? Is that right?

  3. You are really talented! I want to check out some of your other artworks. If you have anything else to show here.
