New Zealand’s Weta Workshop is probably most famous for their work on the Lord of the Rings series, but in the years since they’ve also been involved on stuff like Mad Max, District 9 and the upcoming Ghost in the Shell.
Weta’s design studio is the starting point for much of the company’s work, where some of the best artists on the planet map out what a film’s environments, characters and weapons are going to look like.
Much of that art—or at least the studio’s more recent work—has now been uploaded to Artstation, meaning you can see all kinds of pieces from Mad Max, Elysium, The Hobbit and Spectral, the new sci-fi/ghostbusters movie on Netflix.
I’ve posted some highlights below, but you can check out the full gallery here.
