In a recently showcased piece of concept art, artist and creature designer Jerad S. Marantz presented a very different look for Green Lantern character Hector Hammond.
In the uncolored sketch posted on Instagram, Marantz mentioned that it was an old one that he had done "back in the day."
The drawing presents Hammond in edgy line work with his signature seriously menacing look, evoking a cyberpunk feel, with robotic and modern elements on the character's prosthetic-based torso.
Hector Hammond is a supervillain who routinely opposes the Green Lantern Corps, and he was played by Peter Sarsgaard in the 2011 film.
In 2011, Sarsgaard mentioned he loved wearing Hammond's prosthetic head."I felt powerful. Everyone always listened to me when I was wearing it!" he said.
The artist who created the sketch, Marantz, started his career at an early age interning for special effects houses. Trying a little of everything enabled him to narrow his focus to character design, creature design and costume concept illustration. His acquired skills in sculpture, painting, illustration, 3D modeling and Adobe Photoshop all add to his unique artistic style.
Marantz’ s resume includes working on Batman v Superman, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, among others.
