Men in Black: International - Pawny

One of the main characters in the film is the diminutive alien Pawny, designed by Michael Kutsche (https://www.artstation.com/artwork/N5JVDJ).
We were tasked with developing his range of weapons and gadgets and explore the rest of the Alien Chess set that forms this alien race's presence here on earth. So based on look of Pawny, a pawn on the chess board, we designed the rest of the pieces, only the Queen requiring the disguise chess piece and alien reveal, the rest of the pieces only seen in their chess piece forms.

The challenge on this project was to stay true to the look and feel of the previous films but also find twist that gave the designs a feeling they were produced outside of the US MIB branch.
