Emma Frost: A Concept Revisit

There are some characters that deserve revisits on a regular basis.

Our first Emma Frost shoot was one of my favorites. It was a shot which hardly had any post production on it and relied pretty much on photography. Everything was shot on-location and the props were all provided. But as we amassed more shoots, Emma was a character which we felt needed to be revisited and added into the upcoming book. We had to shoot something new.


Elements from the 1st costume were still applicable in the new shoot, which also shaved down some of the cost in producing it. Props from other shoots were also reused into the scene (e.g. candelabras, curtains, and wooden wall). We also thought of paying homage to another Jim Lee Marvel card piece. Of course, we still wanted to inject some personal touch into the final look and feel of the image.

And so, here’s the latest Emma in a larger size for your convenient perusal.
