This was a tiny 1.5″ thumbnail sketch I drew up (whilst working on The Wolverine) which I then scanned and painted in some rough colour. Wes used that as a guide to render out the final poster image and give the walls of the Maze a real sense of scale.
If you think this image of the glade is cool you should see the two other concept paintings I did for Wes.. But I guess you will all have to wait a while to see those! 😉
