Guardian’s Concept Art Shows That Rocket And Groot Could’ve Looked A Little Terrifying

It’s hard to imagine Guardians of the Galaxy as being anything other than goofy and slightly quirky, but artist Justin Sweet posted some of his original Guardians concept art on his Facebook, and it looks like some of the first takes on the film’s characters were fairly dark and gritty.

As you’ll see after the break, most of the images (while absolutely stunning) have a very different thematic tone than the final product. Rocket (pictured above) is a good example of that. In the movie, he looked more or less like an average raccoon with a penchant for firearms, outbursts and walking on two legs. But Justin’s version looks a little older and war-weary, and definitely not as light-hearted as the Rocket we all know and love.
