So, some time ago, while I was thinking about the exo skeletal version of Samus Aran's suit that I finished recently, I heard the Ironman was going to be made into a live action movie as well as an animated show.

I basically wanted to see the samething happen to the Ironman suit. Instead of it being power ranger-ish body suit, I would have loved to see the exo-skeletal powered suit. It made more sense to me since that is the only way to retain 9+ headed hero proportion of the character in the real world. Other wise, it would end up being looking very silly like so many live action super hero shows (green goblin from spiderman would be a prime example). Besides, why not try something different for different medium? If it's something like Superman or Batman, I thought there wasn't that much flexibility to alter the design (since they are more of an icon). But, something like Ironman, I thought there was still a room to re-define the design.

Last quick study of Ironman's charged attack. Judging by his arm's shield plates being opened to let out to cool off the heat from using this attack, it's probably one of his deadly attack that takes big toll on him too. He probably has to shut down the system for a while after using this attack.

(Edit: I compiled all four Ironman drawings into this one page. Looking at it, i am not pleased with the result of it at all. I do think it was worth it trying different method of sketching... I am sorry to everyone whose comments got deleted.)

Wow. It's as if you made a crazy japanese shoot-em-up videogame version of him! The third picture especially implies this.

that is quite a display of variety you can force yourself to do, and that first one looks like it would make a kick ass model for a game.

This is good and all, but Iron Man was designed for another purpose as well. Tony Stark built the armour to be microsized, as man-sized as possible. At first the suit was ONLY meant to keep him alive. Once he became a hero, he didn't want people to be frightened of their protector, so the suit had to appear as human as possible.

After all, people had already been frightened near witless by the Hulk and Dynamo, they didn't need a hero who scared them to death as well. Nice drawings, though.

you should do the goddamn movie you r the prfect dude to direct the art direction and animation, looks like you were born with exo skeletons in your head...

but marvel sucks in movies they just want the big bucks and sell toys they dont give a shit about making a good project go the right way.

only blade was a decent flick.
