Gorbash and Carolinus by Nambroth Gorbash and Carolinus by Nambroth
One panels from the storyboard I painted. This is for the live action version of the Flight of Dragons movie. The move will be an independent film adaptation of the 1982 animated movie by the same name.

You can learn more here: [link]
Their facebook: [link]

The actual paintings are copyright Jennifer Miller, however I do not claim ANY ownership to the characters, names, or title "Flight of Dragons".

Corel Painter, oil pastel tools.

Special notes: It was requested by the director to slim Gorbash down somewhat. This movie will be pulling a bit more from "The Dragon and the George" from what I understand.

EDIT, June 2013: The design team decided to go with the original hat for Carolinus, the artwork has been modified to reflect this.

Perhaps one of the best pics I've seen about Gorbash. And also kind of realistic. Good job.

I watched that movie so many times when I was little I wore out the video tape. I think pulling from The Dragon and the George will be a good move, as Peter was a leeeeettle self-absorbed. *lol*

um... you will do the others right? The red dragon (whose name escapes me) and the other three magicians and their dragons? Even if it doesn't go ahead I'd love to see you draw them too in this style

I had totally forgot about this movie... it's definitely why I fell in love with dragons. ^_^ Of course, it came out eight years before I was born, but oh well. XD I still loved it. I'm going to try and watch it. :D Thank you for reminding me about it!!!

"There was a time between the waning age of enchantment and the dawning age of logic, when dragons flew the skies free an unencumbered... On that troubled earth below us confusion and chaos reign. All mankind facing an epic choice. A world of magic or a world of science? Which will it be?" - Carlonius

With all the remakes that keep coming out over the years I really wouldn't mind seeing a remake of this master piece; So long as they stay true to the source as much as possible.

WESTERN dragon with a beard? Bleck Ack Phooey! Not to criticize this pleasant drawing's technique. I just wish they'd actually stick CLOSELY to 'The Dragon and the George,' one of my all time favorite books.

I have my doubts about that as well. If those shaggy beards are going to be the only hair present on what is otherwise a magnificently scaly species, they'll seem rather out-of-place, at least to some.

This is just an aesthetic opinion, though; I'm not going to say it should be changed. It would be reassuring, though, to hear in the future that there's been some thoughtful debate among the producers and directors over whether or not to keep those.

Regardless, this is a beautiful piece. I'll certainly be looking forward to seeing how the remake turns out!

It's a shame we can't get the original voice actors back though..Harry Morgan will always be Carolinus to me.
