Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 update 2

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 2, 2017, 7:23 AM
Back in December, I was allowed to announce that I had contributed conceptual fractal images for the Marvel film, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2". Since then Marvel has released two short trailers and one full length trailer from the film. I just wanted to share a few new screen grabs of some of the fractal imagery.

I do want to stress that I only supplied fractal images and some models as concepts. I had no input what so ever on how the imagery was used, and for the most part any fractal imagery you see in the film has been further 'conceptualized' by other artists. For instance, a scene that shows fractal elements will most likely have been constructed from parts or pieces of many different fractal images I sent rather than a standalone fractal image.

I am of course proud to have contributed Mandelbulb 3D fractal imagery for the film, and that it has an important impact in some of the scenes. But a significant portion of the credit also has to be given to the professional concept artists that further developed the imagery into amazing scenes and structures, as well as the Visual Effects companies that bring some of it to life.

In the above image, Peter Quill (Star Lord) and Rocket look to be jetpacking into battle. Baby Groot is actually on Rockets shoulder, unseen in this image. Whatever it is they are flying toward is based in part on fractal imagery. 

Capture2-1200 by HalTenny

Above is Peter Quill and Gamora on a balcony or patio or something. The railing and chair are based on fractal imagery. The floor is also based on a 2d Fractal Explorer image of mine.

Above image Shows Gamora being chased inside the mouth of a cave or tunnel by a Ravager ship maybe? On each side of the mouth of the tunnel is some fractal imagery.

In the image above, it looks like Gamora is shooting her big gun at the remains of the ship that was chasing her. I think the entire inside of the tunnel is based on fractal imagery.

Above is the entire crew inside the tunnel or cavern, which also appears to be entirely fractal based. 

Capture5-1200 by HalTenny

In the gorgeous image above, the structure on the right was constructed from or based on many parts of different fractal images I had sent. It's also possible the round domes are based on fractal work, but it's difficult to tell in this image. 

So that's it for now. Only two more months until the movie comes out. I loved the first Guardians film, and would be hyped to see Vol 2 even if I hadn't been involved. My name should be listed in the credits somewhere way down at the bottom of the art department crew list. (I know a lot of people don't stay to watch the credits, but I will :) )

All images belong to Marvel. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 will be released May 5, 2017.

Hal, you are one amazing artist! I am like you, love the Guardians of the Galaxy movie so having your art in the second installment is like a double treat for me. I have often visited your work here and on Facebook over the years and thought to myself that you would be an amazing person to have on the team of some Sci-fi movie art crew. I am just happy that this is really happening now, to the max, for you.  It was something that was meant to be. Congrats!

Ok so, I just read your signature! lol I was going to ask if you were at DA when we were chatting a few minutes ago! I'll tell ya, it takes forever to make the connections between facebook and DA users from the different names people use. :)

CopperScaleDragon has been my online name for many years, it was only Facebook where I was forced to change it.  My original user name there was CopperScaleDragon and I really hate that they were so stubborn about it.  Of course then I found out that they also forced Lady Gaga to use her real name at the same time so I did not feel so bad.  I liked using a non gender specific name in the early days of the net because women were treated with no respect from the population at large then.

Thank you! It's so nice of you to take the time for the kind words! It was such a surprise to be asked to work on the Marvel film. It certainly eclipsed anything I had ever hoped for :)

Congrats, that is mad cool! And a lot of it is VERY recognizable too, e.g. the blue apollonian-gasket-esque structure in the upper center of the tunnel/cavern image. :D
