Iron Man [Heroes Reborn Version]
Well, this drawing was hard for a few reasons: one, I really can’t tell what’s going on in the design, because virtually every example I could find had different improvised detailing, shifting massing, etc (and I was not going to spend three hours digging up my own comics from the era out of storage) and two, it’s a design I enjoy precisely not at all. I guess I should clarify: I don’t like the DESIGN, per se, but it did bring me back to buying Iron Man comics just from the audacity of the change in direction. And as much as he butchers humans, it’s fun to see Whilce Portacio draw tech. So, I guess it was a successful design. It’s just so… guh. The details I noticed when trying to draw it that I didn’t as a reader, include: gold string bikini, multiple arbitrary shapes, and excessive piping. That all said, it wasn’t the worst I’ve had to do. Beats the 90s stuff that preceded it.
