    The Black Cauldron Gwythaints Concept Art by Phil Nibbelink (Walt Disney, 1985). The fire-breathing flying dragons in Game of Thrones were certainly terrifying, but no less so that these scary creatures in The Black Cauldron, Disney's darkest-ever fantasy film. Here are two original concept drawings of the Horned King's Gwythaints from the hand of Phil Nibbelink. Mr. Nibbelink joined the Disney Studios in 1979, working there for ten years; he is best known for his work on Who Framed Roger Rabbit while with Disney. These are drawings on 16 field 3-peghole animation paper. The first includes a large image in graphite and blue pencil, while the second is in ink and watercolor, and was cut from another sheet and pasted onto the 16 field paper. VERY cool! Art is in Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
