Council2 Description by Guillermo del Toro
This is a sketch by Francisco Ruiz Velasco but it is created around a real existing location. Like in PANS LABYRINTH I decided to go for a crepuscular, warm palette in the Fantasy realm (reds jiving with Hellboy) and leave the real world in blues, greens and greys. I did a quick sketch of the “Throne” that was part of a boiler and asked Francisco to “echo” a halo behind the king’s head, which we introduce in the PROLOGUE. As we scouted locations we found a locomotive cemetery / repair yard and photographed the boiler part of some old engines and lined those up on the walls to create a “hallway” feel. Incongruously, I wanted gold petals to be falling from above- a magical, crazy touch.
