Many of Eduardo Peña's digital paintings are grand in scale, depicting Earth-shattering demonic forces, cities torn apart by mecha battles, the fearsome sandworms of Dune. But he also captures smaller, tenser moments: Batman and Bane meeting in the murky light, the Joker caught in a rare private thought, a cat watching a robot on a misty morning.

Peña has worked as a concept designer on the Hobbit films and says he has also had a hand in some yet-unannounced movies and video games. Looking through his portfolio on CGHub, I'm hoping we'll see a big science fiction battle films with his work in the mix.
