More Infinity Avengers Stuff

When I first drew the middle one I thought the lips were okay, but now that I see it I wonder what I was thinking.
This one was really collaborative so I'm not sure who deserves to post it, but I guess I will and give the others credit. I think Ben Simonsen did most of the painting work, Jon Diesta did some drawing/revision, I did some painting and detail work, and I think Sebastien Gallego worked on it a little also.

Disney Infinity Avengers

With Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out this week, it's a good time to pull out some Infinity stuff from the Avengers playset.
At the very beginning of Infinity, we were talking about using different toy types for each character, in the spirit of the Toy Story 3 Toy Box mode. It's a good thing we didn't go this direction, but I still think bouncy ball Hulk would have been awesome.
A bunch of Cap designs from early Infinity through Infinity 2.
The middle and right paintings are based on sketches by Jon Diesta
The upper Iron Man in the previous image is from an early Infinity style take I tried. I still really like the strangeness of this lineup.
I'll post some of the other Avengers later this week!

Disney Infinity Frost Giants

I got to work on the frost giant designs for the Avengers playset. 
The early versions were more beast than man for rating reasons.
At this point I was abandoning the toy-ishness altogether just to find the look. I knew at some point we'd have to reintroduce toy elements.
A painted variant on an awesome design by Brandon Dayton
A paint over of a great Ben Simonsen design
The game designers wanted a powered-up version where the armor's spikes grew. I think they abandoned that idea pretty quickly after they saw this painting.
Another variant on a great Brandon Dayton design. This one was supposed to use the Hulk Rig (abandoned concept)
