Here you will find graphic representations of the NAUTILUS: Computer Generated Images, paintings, etc.
Michael Crisafulli’s NAUTILUS RENDERING shows the Nautilus Cruising Below the Surface.

NAUTILUS in the Depths, by Michael Crisafulli.
Nautilus at Night.
(Over the years I’ve forgotten where I obtained some of these images; if anyone can identify the artist, I’d appreciate it.)
Nautilus on the Surface.
Another view of the Nautilus in the deep. (Simon Meacock, UK)
Here’s the mesh drawing for Simon Meacock’s NAUTILUS IN THE DEEP, shown above. This gives a good look at how such art is created. Bloody complex if you ask me! (In the squares the mesh’s filled in with surface tones.)

One more by Simon Meacock; this time, a side-elevation view of the port side.

I don’t think this was intended to be an image of the NAUTILUS, but it’s such a great rendering of a cool looking Victorian submarine, I thought I’d include it here anyway. Can anyone identify the artist for me? I’d like to credit him for his work.
OK, this really isn’t a graphic image or painting. It’s that great scene of the NAUTILUS rushing in to attack the US Navy ship ABRAHAM LINCOLN. One of my favorite images of this sub.

As many of you know, Andrew Probert is the artist who produced the cover painting for the 1984 CINEFANTASTIQUE magazine that carried Harry Hathorne’s article on The Making of 20,000 Leagues. I had a picture posted here; Andy saw it and sent me this one: better quality. It’s a great painting: one that has become famous amongst Leaguers everywhere. But check what’s below…..
This is LEGEND FOUND: a new work by Andrew Probert, depicting a moment in the future when modern day aquanauts in a minisub discover the long-lost NAUTILUS. Both the NAUTILUS and LEGEND paintings are available as prints through Andy’s website, (I bought one of each, of course) which you can access via our LINKS page. Mr. Probert is an amazingly talented artist who has worked on many science fiction projects for TV, movies, and periodicals; check out his site and see what I mean. Great work, Andy!
This is called KING OF THE SEAS by Delic Designs in Germany.
Another nice NAUTILUS image from our friends at Malerwerkst in Germany.
Another from the Malerwerkst website. I really like the 3-D aspect of this image.
DANGEROUS PASSAGE from the NIGHTPROWLER website in Germany.
NAUTILUS THROUGH THE CAVERNS by 3D Café.
I got this picture years ago from Wayne Orlicki and meant to post it here but it got misplaced. Obviously it’s an underwater view of the NAUTILUS tearing through the keel of a ship. “What’s so special about that?” The way the picture was achieved, and how well it turned out. The image you’re looking at is actually upside down. Wayne created the texture of the ocean’s surface as viewed from below through the clever use of wrinkled aluminum foil. The sub and ship are models. All the white foam is actually cotton. Get the lighting just right, take a picture, invert it, and voila! A visual representation so believable that when I don’t tell people how it was done, many assume it’s a cut scene from the movie. Nice job, Wayne.
Here’s a computer generated image from Bob Jenson of the giant squid attacking the NAUTILUS in deep water. Bob says the sub was done in Bryce and the squid in Amorphium. I guess you computer artists out there will understand those are the names of the programs Bob used. All I know is it looks good! Keep up the good work, Bob.
And here we have yet another CG image from the very talented (and apparently prolific) Bob Jenson. He calls this one ARCTIC. Obviously, it’s the NAUTILUS On Ice. Very nice! Don’t stop now, Bob, you’re on a roll! J
Here’s one from Steve Johnson, also known as “SciFi Steve.” The NAUTILUS at the North Pole seems to be a favorite subject of late! J As you can see, Steve is a very talented CGI artist. He has a website entitled 50’S SCI FI MEMORIES, where you can not only find more images from 20,000 Leagues, but also favorites like Conquest of Space, Commando Cody, and many more. Steve’s URL is http://www.scifisteve.com/ You can also access his site via our LINKS page. Great stuff, Steve! Looking forward to seeing more!
NEW! Above and below are “Day / Night”versions of the same image sent to us by Eric Camden. Very nice!
