Since Doorways Are A Big Deal

Here's another production sketch from the movie, with a little commentary this time;

Giant Doorway {Francisco} - This drawing was done by Wayne Barlowe, although I'm sure Mike Mignola had a big part in this design. The general idea is that this stone giant has been lying in the ground for hundreds of years and the erosion has badly damage it. In his belly is a doorway to the magical realm.

GDT: I wanted the doorway to be special and I felt this was a chance to do a Harryhausen-esque moment. So I asked Mike to sketch a broken stone giant and then tweaked his face to be a bit more like the Angkor Wat ruins. Originally the doorway was through a twisted tree but that was too close to Pan's Labyrinth...
