The Dark Crystal by JeffStokely The Dark Crystal by JeffStokely
I always see poster like images from this movie featuring all the characters and the Crystal, telling the whole story in one image. I love images like that. But for this piece I really just wanted to show one moment, something that showed some of the beauty of the world that Jim Henson and Frank Oz created. Had a lot of fun with this one so I can definitely see more fan art to come when I have some free time.

This is some awesome linework. Almost didn't notice the permanantly pissed-off Fizzgig off to the side. I love it!!!

Really neat. You really captured the mood and attitude of the Dark Crystal wilderness. I think that it's the fungi that really puts me there.

Thanks! I think that was one of the most important elements of the film, plus Im a big fan of drawing wildlife so it was a blast.

Beautiful piece. I sat in at a talk with Brian and Wendy Froud like two days ago at a local college and it was VERY inspirational. They designed what the creatures looked like in Labyrinth and Dark Crystal and their son was Toby in the movie Labyrinth. Made me happy to see a Dark Crystal drawing so soon afterwords. ^_^

I really enjoyed his personality. He just seems like a really humble and inspirational individual. They really love them some fairies and it makes me like fairies just seeing it. :D I love to see adults who arent afraid of imagination and they truly create their own reality and its a beautiful thing.

Great work! It makes me think of Dark Crystal mixed with Jeff Smith's Bone. I love this image, now get Ander to color it!

I think my buddy Curry might be splashing some colors on it soon:)
