he became one of MARVEL COMICS most popular horror artist of the seventies – MIKE PLOOG. probably that’s why disney asked him in the early eighties to do some designs on THE BLACK CAULDRON. I like his visual development work on that film a lot, what I cannot say about the whole movie. it is a real ‘horror’-piece. here are some of mike ploog’s designs of the the world around the ‘horned king’…

I believe Mike Ploog also did development work on Ralph Bakshi’s version of THE LORD OF THE RINGS. I remember admiring the storyboards that were pinned up in that studio and being told they were his.
Although the IMDB lists him as a layout artist on the picture I am positive that I was looking at storyboards. (anyway, how do you do layout for rotoscope?)

Wow, these Black Cauldron concept pieces are amazing! Thanks for posting these!
I liked some parts of that film, like the action packed escape from the castle, which also had some very cool background art pieces.
