Thor Development: ODIN by philbourassa Thor Development: ODIN by philbourassa
Development art for Tales of Asgard, an upcoming (eventual) release from Marvel Lionsgate.
Heres an early take on the all-father, Odin. I drew him significantly younger than we are used to seeing him since the film revolves around the trials of a teenage Thor and Loki.
This is sort of Odin in his prime before losing his eye and what-not.
I had a lot of fun designing this cartoon and working with the awesome staff and crew at Marvel Lionsgate.

This is awesome! :la: Hey, one question! If you ever decide to respond to this, which I don't mind if you don't; do/did you have a concept for the character Algrim in the movie?

Very cool. But . . . . why does he look like he belongs to the Water Tribe? Don't get me wrong; I love Avatar the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra as much as the next person. But all that blue, and all that fur, and that cape . . . I can't be the only one wondering if he's from the North or South.

I drew this YEARS before Legend of Korra and I did not watch the original show, although I do know Mike and Brian (the creators) personally. I'm not sure what you are implying or trying to suggest... as far as the fur, Vikings wore animal skins. I don't know what else to tell you.

Sorry. I wasn't trying to imply or suggest anything. I was just commenting on the coincidence of the resemblance. But if this came first, maybe it lent some inspiration to Korra's design.

Oh, man, this is really cool, but I think Odin already lost his eye when T and L were teens.

Sorry, doesn't matter too much I suppose.

Thanks, Kelsey! This cartoon was released a few months ago, but the look and feel of the final product is a lot different than the concept art.

In the story he still has both eyes. I drew some designs with the missing eye before I read the script, then obviously had to revise his look once I started meeting with the director.

So you guys aren't going like, deep deep into the myths then.

:iconphilbourassa:
philbourassa Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2010  Professional Filmographer
The writers of the marvel Direct to dvd movies are not going deep into the myths? I don't work for that studio anymore, and had almost zero input into the stories, so I don't know if I can answer that question with any real conviction.
