Iron Man Redesign 2013 by ProlificPen Iron Man Redesign 2013 by ProlificPen
This week I went back into this illustration that I did a few years ago and spent a few more hours improving it until I thought that it was on-par with my current skill level.

The original concept was supposed to be Tony Stark's Iron Man suit as it could look like in a future iteration. I tried to give it a high-tech elegance. Something that an eccentric billionaire playboy weapons contractor would save for himself :)
This is supposed to be a next generation version of the suit (more advanced than the one's seen in the movies so far). Increased protection, firepower, mobility, and arc reactor power core output.

ProlificPen is available for commissions year round! Email or send note here for info. This image is available as a hand-signed 11" x 17" print, email me or visit my online store [yannidavrosart.mybigcommerce.c…

"Ironman" Is property of Marvel 2013

Really cool design although the Helmet does look odd in some way, dont get me wrong its very stylish but not that badass looking Iron-Man face we got to know in the last few years
danmar123 Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014
Damn, that's awesome. It's even better than the original one
JetPowerFIE Featured By Owner May 26, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm getting a Didact (from Halo 4) feel with that face plate.  Looks awesome!!!
ProlificPen Featured By Owner May 31, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks. But check the date of the post --> 2011 was before any Halo 4 concept art was released, to my knowledge.

Well, dang!  You were already crafting the face of the future before the Big Boys in the industry where!  Like the rest of your work that I've seen, an original futuristic twist on what we already know and love.

Joyfully reinvented! I cant wait to see if you do more, these are quite amazing.

This, to me, looks like what we woudl have gotten if the movie crew had been asked to design the Bleeding Edge armor.  Their entire goal was to make the bleeding edge look more biological than the previous designs, and to me, that's kinda what this looks like.  a bit of an insectoid-inspired armor.

Amazing! Looks like an MK9 character! Looks a lot more armored than classic Iron Man

Wow I have no words for this....

You know what? I recommend you combine this design with the Ultimate look and we'll essentially get the design for a theoretical Iron man reboot.
ProlificPen Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Hmm. Interesting vision you have there. They will be rebooting him in about 10 years if the past is any indication :)
Guyverman Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2013
I'd also combine this design with the Ultimate look.

Can you make another view of this armor ? It's so sweet
Lupis-Draco Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013
Reminds me of the armour that Roman Centurions wore, especially the face design.

feels like halo the people who made the rings
ProlificPen Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Except I painted this well before Halo 4 was even conceived.

Almost looks alien-originated!
Amazing work!

I like it! Not all that much different from the original design, yet beefier and more technological-looking. Good one!
ReticleMouse Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
this looks so cool!!
Solaris90 Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Ooh...this is really awesome. I especially like the redesigned helmet and torso area. The only thing I'm iffy about is the arc reactor on the chest. Sorry, but you just can't beat the classic circle. Anything else just looks fancy for the sake of fancy.

Is that a coincidence that the chest now looks like the flux capacitor, oh and congratulations, your drawing is the first to get a comment from my account

very intimidating, that billionaire playboy philanthropist is one lucky guy

Very elegant.

Nice design.
Alloygray Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012  Student Traditional Artist insanely awesome...

Shiney and cool!
Echodread Featured By Owner May 20, 2012
ooooooo! This is nice. Real nice.
hollow2404 Featured By Owner May 20, 2012
It's way better than the original even though if this design did make it to the movie, the story wouldn't be the same. But I noticed that you didn't change it much down from the waist to toe, why? Other than that it's amazing!
ImpulsiveSpidercide Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
I think this would be an excellent Iron Man 2099 armor, and it is a shame that they didn't have one. I mean, they had Stark-Fujikawa in 2099, it'd have made perfect sense for them to have their own Iron Man. All the same, it is a good redesign and something I could see within the context of a future Iron Man movie, perhaps as a glimpse into the future of Iron Man.

Is that the Flux Capacitor on his chest. Used to travel through time in Back to the Future? Haha. Anyway, I love your work and how much more organic the suit feels.
ProlificPen Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
hehe, quite a few people have made that joke. That would be kind of awesome if Iron man could time travel, but that concept doesn't really fit in with the style of the comic. Thanks for the kind words.

Can you do a Green Lantern Redesign
ProlificPen Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
After seeing how poorly the movie did in the box office, I would not touch that property with a 50 foot poll. No offense.
