Ironman Evolved
« on: August 12, 2019, 09:31:39 AM »
Over on the challenge thread it was Ironman.
I struggled making the larger head design for some reason
and rather than post all five head designs there I have started
its own thread to keep the challenge thread a little tidy.

I did not realise I made so many and they might not be in the order I made
them as I took some on my camera and some on my phone.

I was trying to get a squarer look at the centre of eyes.
Plus Iron Man's head is quite round in shape,
mine were too square looking.

I did make the body early on, this was the first one.
Not good  :(
It looked like a cyberman from Doctor Who.

This face was OK, possibly a little to square but better.

The first picture the face is overly square, there were two sets
of red 260 down side of face. I was going to pop one and
add an extra gold chrome inflated to a 160 size to smooth
it and make rounder but once I popped one of the 260's
I thought the face was OK.

I also made a completely new body design.

So on the first body and head design I popped the outer red
on the head for a smoother rounder face as well.

My favourite two pictures of Iron Man.
If I went for version three would I make different?
Possibly...………...well OK I would.

In the last picture I would go with the thinner face, picture two.
