|Thor (2011) concept art by Wes Louie|
One of the most impressive things about Thor was the ice world of Jotenheim and it took a ton of artists to finalize the look. One artist that worked on the film was Wes Louie.
Louie is a professional concept and storyboard artist who's worked on projects like Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure (2011), Halo 4 (2012) and Believe (2014).

"I worked on Thor(film) back in March of 09 before they had a director and they just told me to explore ideas in which the actors would be wearing practical suits that would look like ice." Louie said, "If you've seen the film, the Jotun look different than the concept art I have here. They're more of a mix of humans with a bit of ice. Around April of that year, Thor got delayed and I jumped onto other projects."
