Marvel Studios concept artist Jerad S. Marantz has revealed new concept art for the character Mantis, who made her live-action debut in this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Detailing a much more insect-like look for the character, who was portrayed by Pom Klementieff in her first-ever big-screen appearance, the art is a big departure from the Guardian's final look, which was considerably more human.
Take a look at Marantz's early Mantis piece below.
