This was my personal favorite character I got to work on for Thor Ragnarok . One of the early story boards had a great sketched in bird/creature face so we were asked to explore that. I liked the idea of him being triggered when he saw Thor and a mighty “BAKAAAAW” sounding through Surtur’s domain. Although these guards were cut, the flaming chicken lived on as one of the demon variations later on. All images © 2017 Marvel Studios
