Ender's Game Movie Concept Imagery?

***Post Update****

UPDATE: From Summit PR:

   " These are NOT from the film. The Ben Proctor image was a personal sketch that was done years ago, before he was ever affiliated with the ENDER’S GAME production. It was his own fan art and not something that is or ever was a piece of concept art for the film. You’ll note that Ben is taking this down from his personal site, but it’s only to ward off further confusion. The David Levy image is also not a piece of concept art from the film. This is actually from a video game project he worked on years ago. "

****Back to the regularly scheduled blog****

I can't wait to start seeing more complete images of the set for the Ender's Game Movie. I'm sure they will be releasing something "official" soon enough, but still I had to go searching. So starting with IMDB I saw that Ben Proctor, a visual artist that is known for his work on such movies as Transformers and Avatar, is heading up the Production Design for the movie. I viewed some recent work in his online gallery he posted up in his online gallery and came across this image: 

While he lists it as "Sketch of a scene from the classic scifi novel 'Ender's Game'. I wonder if it might be a set for the movie since it looks like the simulators Ender and company use at the Command School on Eros.Only time will tell

Also,  in my IMDB hunt I came across the David Vyle Levy, senior concept artist, for the movie. In his online gallery he posted this shot entitled "Corridor."

What interested me in this piece as a possible set design for the Ender's Game is the rounded door at the end of the hall, the shape of the hall way, and the paneling layout. In my mind a lot of those elements looked like the parts of a set that were visible behind a picture Roberto Orci in a posting on the Ender's Game Production Blog

Yeah. I'm reaching for sure....but hey, I got to do something while I wait the 530+ days until I can see the real thing.

I also noticed that the color of the suit top of the person standing at the end of the "Corridor" picture is a color blue like a picture posted on this weeks edition of the Production Blog showing the color scheme of the real life suit behind Graff's name tag.

I'm done.
No, really.
Have a good weekend....
