Check out Insurgent concept art by Fabian Lacey!
The sequel to the hit movie Divergent called The Divergent Series: Insurgent (also known simply as Insurgent) is a box office hit thanks to the continuing appeal of strong female characters. But one major change to the character fromthe book is having the hero Tris (Shailene Woodley) using guns. In the book Tris has a hard time holding a gun because she killed her friend Will. Author Veronica Roth spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and said it's an important change for the movie. "I think having an action movie in which the heroine can't hold a weapon, then the whole movie is about her not being able to hold a weapon," said Roth. "But they found other ways for her to express her emotional state, other than the gun-holding." One of the artists that helped craft the look of the weapons in the movie is Fabian Lacey.
Lacey is a professional concept artist who's worked on Hollywood movies like The Avengers (2012), Star Trek (2009) and Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
