I’m not crying honestly.

“Well,” said Milo, pushing his glasses up with a huff, “Your entire civilization forgot its system of writing even though, at the very least, you and your father were both alive before the flood that apparently destroyed your knowledge.   Why blame me for a massive plot hole that seemingly only exists to propel the ’Mighty Whitey’ trope?”

To create a mythic look to for the ancient sunken city and the Jules Verne-esque technology in Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Disney turned to Hellboy creator Mike Mignola to work on the film’s production design.

While Mignola’s influence can certainly be felt in the final film through his designs, Disney didn’t fully copy his heavily shadowed aesthetic. We can get an idea of what the movie might have looked like if Mignola had designed it entirely from these images and from the cover of the graphic novel adaptation of the film, which was drawn by Mignola (just the cover, not the graphic novel itself). You can also see more of Mignola’s concept art (and other Atlantis concept art) at Floobynooby.

The stylized art of Mike Mignola, known best for his Hellboy comics, he was also a big part of the art direction for Disney’s Atlantis, and was responsible for the design of Mr. Freeze in the 90’s Batman the Animated Series.  He has also done comics and cover art for several DC and Marvel comics, among other projects.
