The Hulk

A few years ago, before Ang Lee's The Hulk debuted in theaters to dumbounded fans nationwide, I had the pleasure of working on some of the merchandise for the film. I had a really great time dreaming up situations where we could have the Hulk destroying all manner of property. In this design, Hulk SMASH puny Hum-Vee into a small waffle of Detroit armoured steel.

A small touch of color to help distinguish the planes.

After the design was finalized, we sent our sketch over to the extremely talented folks at the Jim Roger's Studios. They were incredible to work with! Having worked with sculptors overseas who are perported to be cheaper, I found that using Jim's studio was a fanatstic investment of time and value. He and his team were able to solve many of the problems inherent in the initial drawing. Yes, I will admit that there were some "problems" with the concept sketch. Nonetheless, the final product was far superior to anything we ever had made overseas.
