Concept Art Corner: These Early Sketches of Monster Robot Studios’ SZC: Beyond Dead are Beyond Awesome!

If last week’s fascinating interview with Monster Robot Studios (the talented folks behind Bridge the Gap and GravCat) piqued your interest in their upcoming Metroid-esque platformer SZC: Beyond Dead half as much as it did mine, then, boy oh boy, do we have a very special treat for you today!

Courtesy of our good buddy Ash Jackson — Monster Robot Studios’ main man and comic book artist extraordinaire — check out a gallery crammed chock-full of mouth-wateringly gorgeous conceptual drawings of SZC‘s gun-toting heroes, enemies such as hordes of flesh-eating zombies and a humongous winged boss (amongst others), various in-game environments, weapon designs, and more!

And just think: if even the concept art is polished to such an impressively high-degree, how visually stunning the finished product is actually going to be!

Like what you see here? Well, then I’d also definitely encourage you to swing by Ash’s Flickr photo stream, where in addition to Bridge the Gap and GravCat artwork plus shed-loads more SZC-related stuff, you’ll find tons of original comic book art, including some amazing takes on iconic DC and Marvel superheroes like Batman, Wolverine, and Thor!

SZC is due to blast onto the App Store on the 22nd of this month, and we’ll have a full iFanzine review ready to rock ‘n’ roll then. In the meantime, stay tuned to Monster Robot’s Twitter and Facebook accounts for more juicy news.
