Learn “How to Paint Characters the Marvel Studios Way” with a new hardcover next April

When making a film, what ends up on the screen rarely comes together through random chance.  Shots are meticulously storyboarded, staged, and planned before the cameras even start rolling, and even then there’s post production work to make everything look just right.  One of the most fascinating things about the filmmaking process is seeing the concept designs that were drawn up to inspire the look of a film.  

Next April, Marvel Studios will release a hardcover collection that not only shines a light on the painters and designers behind your favorite Marvel films, but they’ll show you how to paint characters just like they do.  So not only will you get a look at how these designers work, you’ll have a chance to design and paint your favorite characters as well.  Check out the details below.
