Check out Sin City: A Dame to Kill For concept art by Aaron Sims Company!
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (also known as Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) is a sequel to the 2005 film Sin City. While the movie got mixed reviews everyone agrees that the film is, as Los Angeles Times said, "visually stunning." All of this took an amazing amount of work behind-the-scenes. The exclusive stereo VFX partner on the film, Prime Focus World was been integral to help bring the movie to the big screen. "Throughout our development as a company, whether in advertising, television, Bollywood or Hollywood, we have always taken on certain challenges," said Namit Malhotra, Founder and Global CEO, Prime Focus World. "These are the challenges that allow the company to step up to the next level – that push us to become better. Sin City: A Dame To Kill For was our biggest challenge yet."
To help create the breath-taking effects Prime Focus turned to Aaron Sims Company to help develop the look of the film. ASC is a design, previsualization and visual effects studio who've worked on Hollywood projects like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014) and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)
I got the chance hear how ASC helped achieve the incredible visuals on the film and they sent me some artwork.

"We were hired by the exceedingly talented group at Prime Focus to help design the final shots in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For that would be used for visual effects." Aaron Sims Company said, "What you’ll see in the film is more or less one to one based on ASC’s designs. It was great collaborating with Prime Focus on defining the final look of the film, when we normally are hired to design characters and creatures. The work put into designing in the fascinating style of Sin City and really take it to the next level was done by ASC artists Joshua Min, Francesco Corvino, Marjan Mahdjoubi, and Edvidge Faini."
