Now that The Avengers is in theaters and raking in tons of cash, a bunch of the artists who worked on various concept designs for the film have started posting their work on their respective websites. Here, artist Justin Sweet shows us a variety of different looks for the Chitauri, otherwise known as that alien race the heroes must defeat toward the end of the film.
Says Sweet: "I'm proud to say I worked on Marvel's THE AVENGERS, directed by Joss Whedon. My task on this film was to develop the Aliens that the Avengers fight. It was a collaborative effort, and I worked along some very talented fellows. Here are some of the aliens that I did ending with the last one that got the nod for the final. Fun trying to figure these guys out."
Check out Sweet's concept drawings below (with more on his official site), and let us know if you like the final version better than some of these earlier incarnations.
