"Guardians of the Galaxy" concept artist Jackson Sze has unearthed some of his original concept art for the film, offering up a key frame he designed that was inevitably used -- to great success -- in the final version of the Marvel Comics-based film.
The shot Sze showcases depicts the iconic moment in the film when Rocket and Groot attack, full-blast, the guards at the Xandarian prison compound near the beginning of the film. Unlike most other concept art, this scene was actually brought to life.

Additionally, Sze shared the following piece of Groot concept art that differs greatly from the final version of the character.
"Guardians of the Galaxy" is currently available for Digital HD download and on Blu-ray and DVD; "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
