A number of brilliant artists contributed their unique vision to The Fifth Element, including Gaultier and Moebius. But one of the main influences on the film was Jean-Claude Mezieres, the comics artist whose time-travel comic director Luc Besson is adapting. Check out some of Mezieres' original Fifth Element concept art right here.

Mezieres' art and designs for The Fifth Element have been around for a while — there's some on his website, and you can buy signed prints — but some really nice high-res versions just went up online at Imgur. And they're just mind-blowingly beautiful. Check out some more of our favorites below, and the rest over at Imgur.
