While at the Terminator Salvation event last week I couldn't help but think how cool concept art is; they had a bunch on display. Besides being impressive to look at, the artwork, like trailers, shows us what a given film can look like when at its best.
The same holds true for the first piece of conceptual artwork released for World War Z.
World War Z Concept Art
The good people at io9 have posted this little gem (below). The artwork was created by Dan LuVisis and, if my math serves me right, the artist took over sixty hours to create it. A note from LuVisis:
This is the image I did, to get on the film World War Z with Marc Forster, director of Quantum of Solace. Can't say whats going on or what the outcome is right now, but it's not in the negative zone :)
This was one of the most difficult images I've ever done. Incredibly challenging to the point where I wanted to quit. But through thick and thin I forced myself to complete it.
Besides featuring impressive explosions, carnage and tiny details, the concept art also comes packaged with a tiny easter egg. Though impossible to see on the image below -- click for blown up version -- look in the upper right hand corner and you will see the quad for Quantum of Solace, the last film from director Marc Forster.
