We did a number of ideas for the Cave of wonders entrance. Some out in the open like the animated film, some including ancient architecture. But ultimatly it was decided to have it carved into a rock face.
The cave of wonders journey for Aladdin and Abu was originally much longer. It included a number of treasure chambers, each one bigger than the last.
The final visual for the Sultans Palace.
The palace went through a long design process. These were a few of the first quick colour sketches that were done to get the design process rolling. Gemma Jackson(the production designer) wanted to explore lots of different architectural styles. mashing them together to see how they might look.
Quick sketches for the Palace gates. Again creating a Hybred style.
A few visuals for how the smaller streets and market areas might look.
These are a few colour sketches to get the discussion for the 'Whole new world' sequence off the ground... :) . Ultimately they were not used, but you find much of what you draw gets superseded in the end. Alot of the art you generate helps move the design process forward even if in the end the final design does not resemble your original sketch
