More Thor Concept Art from Michael Kutsche
Concept artist and character designer Michael Kutsche releases another piece of stunning art used in the creation of Thor
Now that Thor has been in theaters for a couple weeks, Marvel has loosened its iron grip of secrecy to allow some of the artists and designers who worked on the movie to display their artwork. A few days ago, Shasvre pointed us to two recently released images from concept artist and character designer Michael Kutsche, and now Kutsche has released a third character design on his personal website, an image of a Frost Giant.
Michael Kutsche is an award-winning German artist based in Los Angeles, California. He is a self taught artist who works both in traditional and digital media. His work is best described as an astoundingly lifelike depiction of parallel realities, populated by odd characters reminiscent of movies, comics but also Flemish Renaissance Painting. His unique approach of imaginative character creation has led him to become a character designer on Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, “John Carter of Mars”, directed by Andrew Stanton and "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh. Parallel to his career in the film industry he still keeps track of his own projects, including paintings for future exhibitions, book projects etc.
Thor was written by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz, Don Payne, J. Michael Straczynski and Mark Protosevich and is based on the character created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby that first appeared in Journey into Mystery #83 in August 1962. The cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano, Joshua Dallas, Rene Russo, Kat Dennings, Stellan Skarsgård, Clark Gregg and Academy Award-winners Natalie Portman and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
