Thor Development: Volstagg by philbourassa Thor Development: Volstagg by philbourassa
Development art for Tales of Asgard, an upcoming release from Marvel Lionsgate.
This was my first pass at Volstagg from the Warriors Three. I actually drew this before I ever received a script from Marvel and so, not surprisingly, I was shy of the mark. I had forgotten that Volstagg is typically depicted as the cowardly blowhard, who's goofy antics are often played for comedic effect. In the end, final model for this character was a bit more whimsical and comical.

Thanks, Tim. The release date has been pushed back to coincide with the release of the feature film. Tales of Asgard should hit stores some time in 2011.

I really like this design, more than the final one I think. Volstagg is still a badass! A goofy-looking one but nonetheless!

He has a fantastic feel of gravity to him, great design, all he needs is a giant turkey leg in his hand.

Wicked dude. Its like a version of him from 13 Warrior or something. I love that gnarly gritty style. Nice work with the final design though too.

Thanks, Dan. Yeah I dig that movie quite a bit, I really love me some period films. Basically I tried to incorporate some historical influences as well as fantasy stuff into these designs.
