Take a look at the incredible variety of concept artwork for Thurop Van Orman's forthcoming stop-motion feature 'Black Forest'.
"Pip a quirky Pretzel maker must face his greatest fears to find his missing parents. He must journey through the Black Forest. There he finds something even more terrifying: he’s falling in love with his cousin Boozle! (she’s not really his cousin)"
According to Thurop's blog he's currently in negotiations with Cartoon Network and Dreamworks for the project. Not too sure who would suit the project more after seeing these concept pieces and reading the bizarre synopsis above, but regardless of who ends up owning 'Black Forest' with Thurop at the helm it's going to be fantastic.
