Making of: Bank of Megalopolis Stage

You’ve undoubtedly all seen the wonderful work Stephane Boutin is doing on the background stages, how about a sneak peek at the steps the art went.

We had asked Stephane for a street-level stage to flesh out the city of Megalopolis. Choosing the Bank as the setting was his idea.

This was the first concept of the stage and, needless to say, we were sold on it right away.

The scene takes better shape as the cops and robbers are added. A furious bank manager looks on.

The grayed-out stage is complete! But we proposed a different perspective to make the stage feel more dynamic.

Voila, all of the elements are in place, all that was missing is the colors, a few details, and to make it come to life…

And Stephane delivers in his trademark way! The stage is complete and ready to be integrated… all but the street name. Now why would we go and leave that blank?

Thank you for reading, we hope you enjoyed this heroic portrayal of an artist’s endeavors!
