Back before Max Steel settled on the show that debuted last year, I was tasked to develop a series of inspirational poster thumbnails showing Max Steel in a much more epic, more contemporary light. We depicted him as if he would be the next toy franchise to make the jump to the big screen and covered as many genre categories as possible.
After developing several thumbnails, I painted several of them to the next level of finish.
I also found that whenever you put a map of the world in there, it always gives it a globetrotting feel. If you make it look computer generated, suddenly you enter into spy/global intrigue territory.
