View Full Version : mrede - fanart - ironman
12-04-2012, 04:07 PM
Hi there, my first post and also my first challenge! Subject is the famous Ironman that I want to create slightly different to the known versions. My goal is to make him more sporty because the original one from the movies is a bit too...let's say showy;) The final entry will just be a drawing because my abilities in 3d don't allow me to throw out a cool piece yet (maybe in the future)
The first picture shows a simple reference card. It's just a melting of ideas that came to my mind...classic color theme of a Dodge Viper, straight and edgy body of the War Machine and something like a massive laser blaster on the shoulder.
Ok, this is the lineart...simple but with all neccessary information in it.
This is what I've done so far...
I've no ideas for a background at the moment...will face this, if I've completed the rest...
thanks for watching!

This ironman is looking good. I like the pose and I like the colour scheme you have chosen. The gun looks a bit too big for me. And maybe his left leg (from the knee down) a touch too short/small with respect to the other one.

Your lineart looks really great ! With this position, he's ready for battle (a graphic battle of course) !
The colors you chose are much more interesting than the usual orange/yellow. It makes the technology of the armor more credible.
Hope seeing more soon.

@ignacio: thanks for your hint...the leg/foot was too short - fixed it;) I'll leave the blaster as it is for now... maybe I'll change it later...
@Born8th: jepp, orange is a bit old fashioned and those cold, not super reflective colours are more suitable for modern armors...in my opinion;)
okidok, as Mr. Born8th wished: some progress. I changed a few things here and there, got rid of the lineart and tried something for the background...I thing that I'm going to put him in an warlike environment since this suit was originally made for battles...
crits/comments are welcome!

work in progress: I changed the kneepads and the position of the left leg...it looked a bit oddly twisted underneath the left knee...some minor changes and some details added in the background...

This is looking great so far mwrede!:)
I really like the first colour sketch because the lines makes the armor seem a bit gritty. The rendering you’ve done now is nice, but I would like to see some more dirt and scratches on the armor – as if he’s just been fighting in it.
I also like the design changes you’ve made, but I think it would be more recognizable as Ironman if you kept the circular power source that’s usually placed in the chest of Ironman.

The changes worked. Its looking quite good. It will be good to see how you do the background.

@agoliversen: you're right...I will add the circular power source and scratches/dirt to make him fit better into this war scenario. Thanks, man.
@ignacio: thanks a lot...don't expect too much from the background;) I'll keep it pretty loose to be more focused on the character!
time's running, baby!!! I fulfilled another condition of this contest: the construction sheet!

Good job on the construction sheet mwrede! I'm looking forward to the next update on the painting:)

thanks, ago. The construction sheet is pretty sketchy but you'll get the idea.
oki, it's done. I'm going to post the final Ironman pic directly in the final section to avoid double postings. I just want to thank everybody for commenting and/ or visiting this thread. It took me ages to paint this guy but all efforts have paid off and I learned a lot!
29-04-2012, 09:03 AM
okay, my girlfriend told me to show the final pic in this thread too;) I hope that you like it. good luck to everyone for the poll!
29-04-2012, 08:24 PM
Awesome! Well done and good luck to you too in the poll:)

This is great work done by you. Even awesome, I like it.. But Gun seems to be little big for me.. So smart knees and legs no doubt. But appreciated work..

good work mate..its awsome
02-02-2013, 03:31 PM
thanks a lot, guys...meanwhile I'd change one or two things (blurry BG, more technical approach to forearms/ hands etc)...overall I'm still happy with this version though!

Lovely work, gotta love the render time in 2Dart :)

Thanks a lot! Actually, I didn't expect any comments on this entry after 10 months at all...whatever, somehow it motivates me to produce and post new stuff soon:haha:

just feel like teh gun is kind of throwing it out of balance .. especially for a sport model :-)
26-04-2013, 02:35 PM
@xtrm3d:...in the meantime I would agree to you...the gun would better fit a heavy mech version of him...two slim guns (e.g. colts) would be cool...somthing for his hands...but this technically is a bad idea if you have the palm repulsors there;)
It's all a learning process for me...there are several things that I would change now (e.g. forearms)...design is not just to make a cool pic but moreover to conform it with physics and real world behavior...even comic stuff has to have this kind of "logical behavior" to make it believable...so, the next project will be more balanced in terms of design;) thanks for your "hint";)

hast du vielleicht mehr design sheet davon ?
wurde es gern irgendwann in 3d bauen
