Various makeup work by Dave White:

Special effects makeup designer Dave White helped create the looks for Drax, Gamora, Nebula, Yondu, Korath, and other aliens for James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

“James [Gunn] always pushed for practical and makeup effects. He wanted, like me, to see the real deal there on set. I’ve been fortunate to have been around the Marvel world for a little while. I like to think my own artwork and style has worked well within the universe. James had very specific ideas and I would give an interpretation of what I thought would work. Ultimately, it’s down to what the director wants to see: He needs to go through that process of testing ideas to see how they read in the world he wants to create. There is a retro hint in the [Guardians] designs. I was very careful not to use modern creature design influences that could have fallen short in the unique world Gunn had envisioned.”

Rocket Raccoon and Sakaarans concept art for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ by Maciej Kuciara.

Towards the end of 2012 I got contacted by MPC to work on VFX and visual development of Guardians of the Galaxy. In collaboration with folks at MPC I worked on weapon designs. Most of the Badoon concepts are direct collaboration and often times based on original backdrop from talented artists David Hobbins and Goran Bukvic. The nuclear weapon used by Star-Lord in the movie was created in collaboration with Jama Jurabaev and 3d artists at MPC.

Final Sakaraan design_Concept Art by Jerad Marantaz

Conceptual artist by Jerad S. Marantz (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Grimm, Edge of Tomorrow, Maleficent)  updated his Facebook page and Website with some awesome concept art of the Sakaraan and Background Aliens.

Here are a few images that I got to do for Guardians of the Galaxy. This was one of my favorite jobs. I got to work in-house at Marvel Studios with their amazing team of artists. The experience was exciting and humbling.
Heres the first wave of concepts, hoping to get clearance for the rest. :)

A new TV spot has been released for Disney’s upcoming animated movie, ‘Big Hero 6.’

Synopsis:

“Big Hero 6″ is a heartfelt comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi No-Ginger, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6″ is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”).

Directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt). The film features the voices of T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, and Maya Rudolph.

‘Big Hero 6′ is set to release on November 7th, 2014.
