X-Men First Class (2011) has some dynamite concept art, mainly because it was a visually striking film.
I've shown professional concept artist Howard Swindell's (Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Real Steel, John Carter) X-Men film concept art before, but he posted some more concept art from the film.
Included are new views of Armando "Darwin" Muñoz (Edi Gathegi), some super-sexy alternate wing tattoo designs for Angel Salvatore (Zoë Kravitz) and some inspiring interior designs for the Jet "Blackbird," the bar where we meet Magneto, the X-Mansion and more.
Check out the rest of the pictures after the jump and click on the pictures to enlarge.
See more of Howard Swindell's portfolio at howardswindell.com. By the way, his art is featured in the book Digital Sculpting with Mudbox: Essential Tools and Techniques for Artists if you're interested. I love his "Dumb" pic.
Directed by Matthew Vaughn X-Men: First Class is the thrilling, eye-opening chapter you’ve been waiting for...Witness the beginning of the X-Men Universe. Before Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Erik Lensherr (Michael Fassbender) took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their superhuman powers for the first time, working together in a desperate attempt to stop the Hellfire Club and a global nuclear war.
