Olivier Pron was the lede matte painter for Guardians of the Galaxy. His concepts for the movie sets—and other movies and personal projects—are extremely cool. I love the Chris Foss-iness of Xandar, the home planet of the Nova Corps. The rest of his work is equally great. I wish I could roam his worlds with an Oculus Rift.

Update: A reader points out that, if you zoom into that runway, there's a really cool easter egg. Check it out.

Olivier Pron works as a concept artist and matte painter at Method Studios. He was the lead matte painter for Guardians of the Galaxy, and a concept artist for Iron Man 3 , Cloud Atlas, Watchmen and X-Men: The Last Stand.

You can follow his work in his website and Google+.
