Famed artist Alex Ross created three sketches to be used as posters and the DVD/Blu-ray cover for Marvel’s animated film Planet Hulk. Take a look at the unused art and the piece that inspired the final cover…
Artist/Writer Alex Ross known for his incredible paintings has worked with both Marvel and DC in the past to create some incredible comic book covers, and posters. If you were not aware Ross is also the artist behind the DVD/Blu-ray cover for Marvel’s animated movie Planet Hulk. If you own this movie you have seen his work many times. Supervising director on Planet Hulk Frank Paur has shared Three of Ross’s original sketches including the one that was chosen for the final piece. Along with the art Paur provided this statement.
"Anything that Alex Ross does is Awesome, but it takes on another level when he does it on a project that you're associated with. I'm cleaning up my files I came across these concept sketches for the cover art to my Planet Hulk animated movie I did for Marvel / Lionsgate a few years back. I forgot about them until recently. If you're like me, you love how things are created and the process that leads to the final art. Here are 3 concepts that he pitched with the one that made it to the final cut with just a minimal change. Enjoy."
I’m personally a big fan of Alex Ross. One of his posters hangs to the right of me as I type this article. So I always look forward to seeing his work. Combine that with a great story like Planet Hulk and you have a hell of a pairing. What do you guys think? have you seen Planet Hulk? Share your thoughts in the usual place.
