"Iron Man By Design"... By Design


IRON MAN: LEGACY #3 came out yesterday, the one with my variant cover on it. To celebrate I thought I'd post some of my preliminaries. My original idea was to use the clunky Mark 1 suit since it seems more WWII, and I could put a flying fortress kind of spin on it. I thought the nose art worked better for it. I also tried some flight jacket inspired designs with the nose art on his back. Marvel liked the sleeker designs so I went in that direction.



I haven't managed to find a copy of the issue with my variant cover yet, apparently there's only one every twenty five copies. If anybody out there has an extra they'd like to part with, let me know.

i bet when you where a kid buying your first comic book you never imagined that someday a little kid will by a comic book with your drawing on it...
probably feels great

Yeah, you're right. It is pretty cool.

Don Shank said...

These are awesome. I love to see the sketches behind the finished work. The nose/torso is great!

These are outstanding, I love the old school ww2/ p-51 mustang feel your going with. The vintage nose art is especially wonderful.

They should be sending me a few. But who knows how long it'll take.
