The Spiral Staircase

Near the end of the last year i got my hands at a beatifull kid series project, by CN Europe Studio.

There were only 3 people working on the illustration part:
Tom Radclife - original story and illustrations, Dominic Ho - postproduction, and me - color design. Overseeing our work was Mathias Upton-Hansen.

We had 3 weeks to get everything done. Because of that it was a time of very hard work, we worked day and night, including weekends.
Tom created beatifull and spectacular illustrations. It was a great pleasure to be able to underline with colour their character, style and atmosphere.
I'm very glad that i got a free hand regarding all the colors. And that my style - that i've been developing more and more lately - was fitting enough that i got a permission to work on everything "my way" :>
Moments like that are a great joy for any artist :> Pity, that they're also so rarely present with our polish productions, where most often i have to mimic western styles... What and irony...

But anyway - in the heat of work we managed to create about a 7 minutes long episode. Both opened and closed by a steampunk-like stylised narrator.
Great sound, professionally done english job ;) nice.

Tom, Dominic - thanks a lot for the great work, and also Mathias - for the artdirectors understandind!

preparation for work...
