Here's some examples of the concept work I did for Robert Zemeckis's Beowulf. I spent about two years working on this film and I learned quite a lot during the process.

All the art work done by the great artists at Ice Blink over the past 2 yrs is far superior to the screen images - get 'The Art of Beowulf' for a visual feast. Congrats to one and all!

So amazing. Did you have models for some of these paintings? They are just so spot-on full of life.

I haven't seen a severed head painted so beautifully since Gentileschi and Caravaggio.

Beowulf turned out really well IMO, and it looks like it was even more fun to design for.

Great work. Pretty much always...but yeah, great work.
