Thor -Bull Frost Giant Concept

Bull Frost Giant concept art for "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh.
Designed to give some serious headbutts!
Didn't have a long lifespan in the movie though - his face had an encounter with Thor's Hammer.

Thor - Frost Giants Concept

Frost Giants concept art for "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh. This one is to explore a range of body types. Since they come from a dying world, I wanted to incorporate these signs of destitution while still keeping a feel of innate strength.

Thor - Arrival in Jotunheim

Original concept art for "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh. This one is a key frame that shows the arrival of Thor, Sif and the Warriors Three in Jotunheim. My focus here was on the scale, lighting and overall atmosphere.

Thor - Odin Costume Design

Costume design for "Thor", directed by Kenneth Branagh. This one is a concept for Odin's casual dress, I'm happy how it got translated into the real costume for the film.

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.
