Thor - King Laufey


King Laufey concept art for "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh.

The challenge for designing the Frost Giants was to give them a fierce appearance while still evoking a feel of an intelligent, sophisticated race; instead of ending up with a bunch of strong but dumb brutes or the typical movie monsters.

Lovely atmosphere!

I'm always amazed by your broad abstract brush strokes that are still somehow able to describe so much form...

About Me

My photo
Michael Kutsche is an award-winning German artist based in Los Angeles, California. He is a self taught artist who works both in traditional and digital media. His work is best described as an astoundingly lifelike depiction of parallel realities, populated by odd characters reminiscent of movies, comics but also Flemish Renaissance Painting. His unique approach of imaginative character creation has led him to become a character designer on Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland”, “John Carter of Mars”, directed by Andrew Stanton and "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh. Parallel to his career in the film industry he still keeps track of his own projects, including paintings for future exhibitions, book projects etc.
