Illustrations done for the online marketing of the SyFy Channel miniseries Childhood's End, based on a Robert C Clarke novel of the same name.
In the show, the Overlords appear from space to banish all war, sickness and poverty on earth... but at what price? You guessed it - a terrible one!!!
I did 2 or 3 thumbnail sketches for each scenario, but the children were deemed too happy - in the show, the kids become dead eyed, robotic and slightly menacing. So the tighter sketches and the final art show the more soulless children.
