The Chronicles of Narnia illustrations
I did in my uni. I wanted to draw the most memorable landscapes from each book as I imagined them in my childhood. Tried to do some experiments with style and practice more in drawing environments¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I want a Netflix original series based on The Chronicles of Narnia that goes through the series start to finish with cameos from the old cast either reprising their roles or in bit roles. I tweeted Netflix about my idea and messaged them on Facebook, but since I’m a persistent little punk and don’t think I’m the only one who would want a series like this, I wonder if any of you would also tweet Netflix about the idea, or at least reblog this post so others can see it. The hope is that if enough people ask for it, maybe they’ll at least respond to the idea.
The fact that the first book literally opens with C. S. Lewis saying, “But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again,” should tell us everything we need to know about Susan’s story after The Last Battle.
AESTHETIC MEME: [8/10] anything else: t h e P e v e n s i e s i b l i n g s To the glistening eastern sea, I give you Queen Lucy the Valiant. To the
great western woods, King Edmund the Just. To the radiant southern sun,
Queen Susan the Gentle. And to the clear northern skies, I give you
King Peter the Magnificent. Once a king or queen of Narnia, always a
king or queen of Narnia. May your wisdom grace us until the stars rain
down from the heavens.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate what a skilled and savage swordsman Edmund is? He’s like no I don’t need a shield, I slash the enemy with two swords, thank you very much. I can just imagine some of the Narnian generals initially underestimating this smaller, quieter king and then being impressed when he goes out and whips up on trained infantrymen.
And don’t you think it really reflects the just and deep thinking side of Edmund that he uses strategy and skill to defeat the enemy rather than brute strength and a shield? I mean how can you not love this left handed, ambidextrous swordsman who’s as good with swords as he is with words?
If the Witch knew the true meaning of sacrifice, she might have interpreted the deep magic differently. That when a willing victim who has committed no treachery, is killed in a traitor’s stead, the stone table will crack, and even death itself would turn backwards.
