    After wrapping up Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego Marvel Super Heroes project followed shortly after.  Here are a couple of initial concepts for the teaser comp, but eventually they went more with closeup character faces in the final rendering.  Fortunely, this idea was resurrected for the print ad as the project progessed.

  • Awhile later, I was surprised to find out that they actually constructed a wall banner using just lego blocks recreated the same image of the teaser ad.  I stumbled on the above pic from the Marvel.com site.  I believe this was used at E3 2013 trade show.

    The fun begins.  Below are some brainstorm thumnails of character poses followed by cleaner sketches for approval before going to render.  Humor was encouraged for these poses, but Marvel decided to push back on that.  Oh well.

  • This (Story Time) piece is one of my favorites and was a joy to work on.  This was also one of the piece with both my concepts and final execution went through the first round approval process without a hitch.  Things like this only happens once in a bluemoon.
