New Prometheus Concept Art, Videos and More

Artist Ben Procter has uploaded an extensive collection of Prometheus art to his portfolio, including very detailed reference images for the Prometheus ship interiors and exteriors, the Space Jockey chair and costume design. The collection also includes several videos showing pre-viz elements as well as very nice panoramas. Definitely worth a look. Click the image below for more.

    You must not watch behind the scenes very often.....most films, especially scifi films have a magnitude of Previz and conceptualization behind them. If they were to have used every idea the film would have been 5 times the scale and10 times the length.

    Yes, most films do have a magnitude of concept art and obviously you can only settle on one version for a specific set/idea at the end of the day.

    However, I'm going to have to disagree with you with regards to the scale and length.  They definitely had the space for sets of those scales.  And a resourceful team can easily put together something that closely resembles concept artwork without it affecting the budget in a big way.

    How would it affect the length, out of curiousity?  Remember, a lot was cut from the film.  Not only that, many of the sets and ideas had multiple versions.  Everything I've seen so far, behind the scenes, has related to the film in some way.

    I just think they made some poor choices on which concept art to adapt a lot of the time.  Sometimes they did settle for the best version.  But most of the time, I prefer the concept art.

    As for other films - it's not always a case of the concept art being better.

    I definitely agree with that.  The jockey chair in film was replicated exactly from paper to film...Hell, the design for the chest and head is less accurate in the concept art to the original than what we got on film.

    Now that I got to look through the whole thing...
    Despite the brilliant execution on screen, I still really love the more industrial approach to the technology seen in the art, even though Ridley wasn't going for that (and such designs weren't used), the piped out garage for example, and the control consoles with more chunky and color coded keys were rather nice.

    Everytime I look at this, though, I cannot help but laugh.
    His face...his face.

    Oh my Jedi, last time, when Levy's 115 concept art images appeared I said to myself: "It would be worth to bring all material together and make the book just for yourself".. I wonder what's in the Procter's stuff :D
