Clay Work

It's been so long since I posted anything here. And so long since I've done any work on the armour.

But I've been playing with clay lately. Making hero vases in ancient Toltec style, and replicating modern day, who better to deify than Iron Man.

Making an Undersuit

A couple of days ago, I found a great little tutorial on how to create a "cybernetic-looking" covering for your arm.

You can find it here, on DeviantArt

I'm thinking of doing an entire under-bodysuit for the Iron Man armour in this style. It would be far better than a plain black catsuit, and this way if there are any cracks in the hard pieces of the costume as I move around, there will be circuitry and other interesting pseudo-mechanical effects poking through.

Hopefully next week, work will resume on the costume.

Making Of

Here's a Link to a great site that I'll be using as a reference point through the rest of my Iron Man Project.

It's where I just got the video regarding the suits in Iron Man 2.

There has actually been another hiatus on suit construction over the last couple of weeks, we've been busy tidying up the house in anticipation of becoming short-term foster parents.

Working on Iron Man's Suit for the Second Movie

How the hell am I going to do this?

Especially note the hand at the end of the piece.

Another "Making Iron Man"

I've had this name for a blog for a while, but it's only recently that I've done anything about it.

Despite this, it seems that there is another "Making Iron Man" around.

I can't really complain though, it's a book by Jeff Bridges and it consists of photographs taken during the production of the first Iron Man movie.

I have to see if I can track down a copy of the book. It looks good.

Inspirations (2)

Enough Said (Click on image to see the whole thing)

Inspirations (1)

Naturally, the movie and the comic books are inspirations for this project (with my aim being to get the costume ready before IRON MAN 2 hits cinemas...unlikely, but possible).

But another key inspiration is this guy.

An article about him can be found here, and he seems to have a few Youtube videos around the place.

I'll try to post a few more bits as I find them.
