For my first post, I wanted to create a version of Iron Man with a little steampunk influence. The sleek-looking Iron Man armor design in the movies is great, but I especially loved the bulky iron suit he created in the caves. Also loved the way Obadiah Stane's (the bad guy in the 1st movie) suit created a huge cloud of inky black smoke when he flew - so I had to include that too.
This was the first thing I painted in the new CS5 - and man, is it awesome. Probably the biggest improvements I've seen since CS2. The painting engine, I think, is now on par with Corel Painter.
Welcome to our monthly art blog. A bunch of us artists got together and thought it'd be fun to inspire one another with sketches, illustrations, designs, concepts, sculptures...etc, all based around a monthly theme. Enjoy the blog, write if you'd like to contribute!
