The Octobot and smaller Octobots have had a number of varied representations in Marvel comics over the years. The key starting point with creating the imagery was to study all the available reference material. This clarified consistent and important elements and scenes to focus on to then bring whole vision of the complex together.
Through the set of computer-generated images, the Marvel story of The Giant Octobot is now reborn with all the drama it truly deserves. All the key aspects in the original comics are now considered and brought together rationally into the various scenes. The large Octobot robot and inset views were modelled in 3D using software Cinema 4D. The final rendered files were retouched in Photoshop to add further depth and atmosphere.
