One of the very first design passes I did of Captain Marvel many years ago. I actually painted a version of this as a nonspecific actor before Brie was cast. I then added her likeness once she was cast. That happens quite often bc we work so early in the film making process. #captainmarvel #superhero #hero #conceptart #characterdesign #costumedesign #illustration #그림 #캡틴마블 #그림스타그램 #일러스트 #marvel #marvelstudios #avengers #higherfurtherfaster @brielarson
“One of the very first design passes I did of Captain Marvel many years ago. I actually painted a version of this as a nonspecific actor before Brie was cast. I then added her likeness once she was cast. That happens quite often bc we work so early in the film making process,” Park explained.
As you can see, the image includes Captain Marvel’s sash, which she rocks in the comics.
Many people commented on the post, clearly enjoying the art.
“I like this version a lot Andy!,” @jscottcampbellart wrote.
“This is so amazing! I have the artbook and it's so beautiful! I love Brie and it's fascinating seeing all of the designs and artwork,” @neevsart added.
Although, some people took issue with the wedges seen in the second photo.
“The design is nice. The wedges are a bit unnecessary,” @quintessential_carlos replied.
“Beautiful work, really has an awesome vibe to it. Nothing against your work just a thought: I keep wondering why it's such a thing that most women in action wear heels,” @kanashiatisuto added.
Intense shoes aside, the image is pretty awesome!
