Flashback Friday: Concept Art of Ray Harryhausen

Check out classic concept art by Ray Harryhausen!

It's Friday, so it's time to go back in time to the early days of concept design and visualization for classic science fiction films. This week I'm focussing on the work of the great stop motion animator Raymond Frederick "Ray" Harryhausen.

Besides being the pioneer of stop-motion animation he also was a respected artist who helped create stunning illustrations for his films. Sadly, he died May 7, 2013 at the age of 92.

Harryhausen was an American visual effects creator, writer, and producer who's worked on major motion pictures like The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), Jason and the Argonauts (1963) and Clash of the Titans (1981).

Check out the rest of the pictures after the jump (click to enlarge).
