Yes it was (...and here is the first for 2009)




Happy New year everybody.
And here are some more Viking environments that come with it. The longship in the middle of a storm belongs to a storyboard piece for the intro of the film, while the mean looking guy on the top deck is purely inspirational, as I was trying to get into the subject.
The layout belongs to the typical scene of a grand dinner with the men of the Village as they decide what evil deed to do next.

Your works looks very good, Marcos!

Marcos Mateu said...

-Thanks and happy New Year to you too Edwin!

-Thank you Sean, likewise!

-Muchas gracias Jd. El original es relativamente pequeño. Se trataba de darle fuerza a la introduccion de la pelicula y una presencia temible a los vikingos ya que de eso iba la historia

-Thanks Craig

-Thanks for your visit and comment Gato

-Douglas, as far as POE is concerned (one of my favorite films in my career) I barely have anything left besides some color photocopies back in Europe. I obviously have more material from films I worked at freelancing from my own studio, where I would keep a record of things.
Thanks for your visit!

-Muchas gracias Angux

-Thanks Dejan

You're amazing. I don't know of a single artist that does what you do so effectively. The mood, lighting, drama and composition!

Hmm, I think there's magic in that Mallorcan water.

Happy New Year Marcos!

Great Viking posts! So cool to see all this art from the film. I've always been an Asterix fan and loved the old films too. Maybe they should make a high budget Lucky Luke next:D

Wish you all the best in '09;)

-Hans

p.s. are you still at DW?

Marco Bucci said...

very cool comps. The sense of space in the lower one is incredibly strong.

Marcos Mateu said...

-Thanks Armand. Same here.

-Muchas gracias a ti Lutgardo.

-Hey Marcelo! The one thing I always hope will be in the Mallorcan water in summer is me! :)

-Same to you Edouard!

-Well Hans, here you had an interesting thought. One never knows!

-Thank you very much Marco.
