Check out Guardians of the Galaxy concept art by Pete Thompson!
Director James Gunn created a sweeping and powerful film in Guardians of the Galaxy and we just saw the tip of the iceberg in the film. Gunn's film mentioned an ancient and powerful race known as the Celestials and showed the massive intergalactic prison known as the Kyln. Now concept art by Pete Thompson gives us a better look at those two locations and shows what they could have looked like.
Pete Thompson is a professional concept artist who's worked on big budget movies like Thor: The Dark World (2013) and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).

Official Guardians of the Galaxy Summary
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team--the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits--Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand--with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
