What should that matter when "www" = 666! That's because the sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet sounds (vaguely) like our letter "w".

I would love to see some more fanart, or any art inspired by the Cosmic Trilogy - there doesn't seem to be much of it about! I tried sketching a sorn, partially basing the head on Brian Froud's version. Getting my head around the 'sorn anatomy' proved difficult - I think I'll have another go later on. I thought that the chest area would be somewhat broad in proportion to the rest of the body as I imagine that they would have massive lungs, to be able to breathe easily in the high-up places of Malacandra. But they are also described as being very elongated and spidery, so the limbs would have to look sinewy, but 'too long' and gaunt at the same time. Any suggestions on how the sorn anatomy might work out on paper?

Sorn Sketch

Postby Kanakaberaka » 19 Aug 2007, 02:19

That's a very good interpretation of one of the seroni, Moogdroog. My own impression of the sorn's head resembles an Easter Island statue, though with more of a triangular appearance. That is, a small pointed jaw and a broad forehead, a triangle pointed downward. IMHO - your sorn should have a broader chest to contain his oversized lungs and give him a more "skeletal" appearance. You can see my take on the sorn over in the Out of the Silent Planet study section under "Malacandrian Doodles".
Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Kanakaberaka (like the name ;) ) I'll bear those comments in mind; I was thinking the same thing about the chest in particular. I tried looking at your sketches, but I couldn't enlarge the images - are they still on the same photo host server? From what I could see, they look great, I'd love to see more.

Enlargement

Here's another posting of the same sketches, Moogdroog. The Wardrobe website has gone through numerous changes, so it's possible somethings changed over on the OOTSP forum.

The face looks too hrossan, Moogdroog, but 'tis a very good picture nonetheless.

Moogdroog, I love the modelling [edit: I think I meant rendering here:-)]of your drawing -- especially the head and eyes. You obviously know what you are doing figure-drawing-wise. I think it look very much like what a sorn could be!

I've posted the image below here before, and I thought on this thread, but apparently not. So here is a photoshop exercise I was goofing around with. I wanted to have the green lady by some bubble tree fruits, but I ran out of time fiddling with stuff so I just maxed out the sliders in frustration at one point and it seemed rather 60's-ish to me and I let it stay. And I didn't get around to messing with the fruits on the tree branch to make them look more bubble-like, but perhaps you can imagine what they might look like. I'm told that on some monitors the face doesn't show up (too dark), but she is smiling -- almost laughing, and was supposed to be from the scene in the book where the green lady is laughing at her first sight of Ransom in his "piebald" half-sunburned/half-pale state.

Maybe I should try messing around with it again sometime, but in the meantime, here is the 60's psychadelic Perelandrian green lady picture:-)

And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a fair green country under a swift sunrise.

Thanks, Stanley :) I've been doing some more sketches, I'll post them up here when I have a spare moment. Saw your image just before it disappeared, it was gorgeous. I loved the colours and how vibrant and surreal it was, I think you should definitely do some more Perelandra ones in the same vein if you ever get the chance!

I have posted a drawing of some Malacandrians on my flickr site:

Moderator Edit: Changed image link to BBcode.

I did these sketches when I was in high school and recently I've been re-reading the Space Trilogy. My appreciation of the stories has increased tremendously. I'm at the end of Perelandra now and never before realized the great Eschatalogical (end times) scope of Lewis's trilogy. Much to enjoy and ponder.

I love those Perelandra mural sketches you did. Especialy the Green Lady riding the big fish.

I am sorry we changed servers and the pic on my older post was deleted. It is back up now.
Here are some characters I came up with on my own, more or less. I realize that they look a little like my Hross sketches. Maybe these guys will be a flash cartoon one of these days.

Caio,

It's fun to see all this wonderful fan art. I have another sketch of a Sorn:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/odouglasj/ ... 807669588/

It's not as colorful as some of the excellent sketches posted by other fans but it was fun to draw what I imagined Ransom would look like riding on a Sorn's shoulder (remember that scene?).
