The Redemption of Eustace



This is one of my favorite parts from C.S. Lewis’ “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” when Aslan comes at night to turn Eustace from a dragon back into a human. It reminds me of 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone [is] in Christ, [he is] a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”

The other reason I love this part is because Eustace is having his skin ripped off by Aslan, it just seems like such a cool image! So cool that I finally decided to try and draw it. This started out as a sketch but then I decided to try something new and color it completely with oils within Corel painter. I have an older version that doesn’t save layers so it was really difficult. I only used Photoshop to darken the edges and add highlights.

The Chronicles of Narnia was written by C.S. Lewis
