Illustrator Andy Park has shared two pieces of concept art from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which offer up a look at alternate costume designs for Zoe Saldana’s Gamora and Karen Gillan’s Nebula. Take a look here…
“I did a ton of outfit/costume variations for Gamora on #GuardiansoftheGalaxyVol2 Here’s one of the ones James Gunn liked. We were going for more of a rock star vibe with the Guardians this time around. They did just save the universe after all so why not :)”
“I loved concept designing Nebula for both #GuardiansoftheGalaxy films. What a fun character to explore. I always saw her as Marvel’s Sith Lord. And she was beautifully played by @karengillanofficial This concept painting shows her worn down look with her missing hand replaced with what was referred to as her new “shit hand” that only opens & closes by pulling the lever. It’s the contrast of her being so highly advanced & her having the most rudimentary replacement hand ever.”
