Right, I decided to look at the film the Labyrinth because the beggining chapter in my book describes a maze of flowers before getting to the ivory tower. Another reason for looking at this film is because I love the alternative world amongst our own which the never ending story has. I dont really want to look at stills from the never ending story because I want my art work to look completely different and I dont want anything to influence my imgination, so my solution is too look at similar films instead.

The Labyrinth has these sets that gives each part of the film a different feel to it. From the start to the bog to the forest and even then at the beggining in the home. I was trying to see if I could find some concept drawings or film stills but I didn't have much luck.


  1. AWESOME choice Farideh!
    One of my favourite movies!!!!!
    Looking forward to seeing this one through

  2. the background of the 2 picture remind me so much of the work of Escher,

  3. I don't know if they'll help but some great artists which I find inspiring as they paint a lot of fantasy scenes and Never Ending Story is a world of magic etc are Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. They tend to draw women with mystical creatures and such, but they might help. Just a suggestion.
