Normally we watch movies and and wonder wow the characters in the movie are amazing, the whole movie could suck but the character design is just amazing. What we miss is that the designs we see are a result of hard working concept artists by which animators recreate and animate for the movie. While both have equal the charm, I’d like to shed some light on Michael Kutsche.

He is one the movie industry’s most precious tools, a concept artist behind great character designs such as Thor and Alice in Wonderland. His art as a concept are not the usual scribbles, instead he provides characters with depth in technique and detail. His work is a cross between cartoony and realistic and I believe that is a perfect blend. Michael is a self-taught artist from Germany and he has been inspiring everyone since 1998.
