Digital art and design studio, Atomhawk Design, have released the first images from their work on Marvel's latest blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy.
Atomhawk spent over a year working with the Marvel team on the action-packed space adventure, producing a broad range of artwork for the film, digitally painting the images on which scenes and spacecraft from the film are based.
The film has now grossed over $645 million worldwide.
"Guardians has been an awesome and truly inspiring project to work on," Atomhawk Director and Founder, Ron Ashtiani said. "As our second Marvel project, Guardians presented a fresh set of challenges. This time we were tasked with reimagining a Marvel comic from scratch, rather than working with an existing film franchise. The team relished in the creative license this gave us and I think this feeling is evident in the work we produced."
Four members of the Atomhawk concept team were involved in the project, designing spacecraft, key locations and key action shots.
"The highlights of working on the film were the creation of the Milano spacecraft, which demanded a huge amount of detail and complexity, the Kiln Prison and the severed head of a giant floating celestial being, known as 'Knowhere,'" Ashtiani added.
The team look forward to sharing their work on a third Marvel movie very soon.
