The Challenge

The Stark International complex has a number of varied representations in Marvel comics over the years. The key starting point in creating the illustration of the complex and the inset shots of the transport pods, production line and development labs was to study all the available reference material. This clarified consistent and important elements to focus on, and then work out how to bring it all together.

 

The Solution

Through the set of illustrations, the Marvel story of Stark International 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 complex 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.
