Original Hulk Concept Art, Character Designer Interviewed
The Incredible Hulk is still smashing away in theaters, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep playing the "What If?" game with the Green Goliath’s latest big-screen rampage.
Over at XSI Base, Incredible Hulk character designer Aaron Sims discusses some of the creative decisions made while conceiving the look of the latest Hulk — as well as his nemesis, Abomination. Here, Sims addresses the difference between Abomination of the comics world and his big-screen counterpart:

While it’s a fun read, the real treat in this article is the gallery of early designs for both characters, including the frightening Hulk seen here:
