X-Men 2: PART II
Cerebro Door Icon Designs
Client: 20th Century Fox Via BLT and Associates.
Art Director: Zack Ris
Date: Spring 2001
I had well over 200 logos I did for X-Men 2 from a decade back now, when I was an in-house 3D Designer over at BLT and Associates, so today I have gathered up a set of my favorite Cerebro Door Icons that I did for the project to foucs on them in a better scale to view.
I love doing big metal superhero logos , and this part of the project was a blast to come up with some looks. I had a basic brushed metal look, established in the first film that I used as my spring-board, so I did some direct replicas in 3D, since the first film uses a 2D illustration for the big X, since it is not a real 3D asset.
I had a great amount of design room given to me on this[ BLT's strength!], to come up with some heavy metal, and iron looks for these icons. I did cast metal, brushed metals, lots of blue glass[ that eventually went to Fantastic 4]. A fun process and end product.
