    Jan 9, 2010, 11:48 AM - Iron Man Suit Sculpt WIP Pics UPDATE 1/23/2010 First Pulls #1

    I started to sculpt a helmet, I only have an hour and 15 minutes in to it and I know I am a slow sculptor, but here is the progress so far... Going to make the eyes a lot more narrow with more of a, "kick your tush" look to it, round off the brow a bit more, maybe finish the jaw and the rest of the helmet...

    The general shape is coming together pretty well considering the time invested to this point... I think so anyhow...

    that is looking sick.......its a shame there isnt a way of seeing it in color as you sulpt. but I guess that tool lies in your mind as you sculpt.

    I think you've nailed the brow line with the eys. cheek line is spot on as well IMO

    *chuckles* With that drape over the face, the first thought that popped into my head was "Oh my goodness! Palpatine is Iron Man!!!"

    LoL - That's awesome... I was thinking Dr Doom when I took the first one... Thanks for the kind words all - Gonna get the face plate sculpted, then use it as a guide for the rest of the helmet. Should be a fun little project.

    Ok here is the good news and the bad news - Good news is here is some updates - the bad news, I have to resculpt it - it fell, the clay shifted, and didn't comp for it, so it's not sitting straight on the face underneath, and there is no way that you'd be ale to see out of it, and it wold take more time to try to fix it, than the couple of hours it took to just sculpt the original... So, You're going to see a new sculpt here in a day or so.

    Yup its the same, I started on a second casting last night. It should be done setting up by the time I get home tonight! I'll probably do a run of these after I clean up the casts. I've learned alot about sculpting and casting these past few months. I'ts been a fun journey.

    Looking at your pictures the steps from sculpting to casting are long as you probably know, buts its nice to finally see a tangible result after all your work when you have a cast product in your hands.

    The eyes look good now, but making them a little bigger would be good for viability.. Unless the helmet is very close to the front of your face its kinda hard to see through.

    Wow - thanks everyone!! YEa the eyes should be fine, I'm not going to be flying, but I might put a camera and an LCD in the mask to see I have the technology to make it happen

    But in all reality, yea it's gonna be pretty close to my face - I play football so I am used to having a limited eye-sight with my facemask I wear... So now it's just sharpening it and smoothing it, then should have a mold by tonight, pull by tomorrow to make the rest of the helmet

    I KNOW HOW YOU WANT TO MAKE THIS IDEA WITH CAMERAS AND LCD SCREEN. I THINK THAT IS EASY. PUT THE CAMERAS IN THE CORNERS OF HELMET EYES OR IN THE MIDDLE AND PLACE THE LCD INTO FACE PLATE AND PUT THE MAGNIFIER ON THE LCD. YES MAN THAT IS GREAT IDEA, VERY NICE PLAN. GOOD LUCK.

    Do you want to make a interface like on my avatar or on film? ;]

    What kinda LCD are ya gonna use? With the LCD close to your face the pixel resolution may suck big time.. I thought about putting TV glasses on the inside of the helmet hooked up to a webcam and interfaced through a laptop. I thought about this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_LED while not cheap right now.. offers a far better resolution then standard LCD.

    Yea, for those of you who don't know, I actually own and run a conceptual design firm. Nothing like smart weapons and what not, but micro AV and Servo design, conceptual product design, athletic medical rehabilitation equipment etc.

    We've talked about using OLEDs with a sponsorship from Sony or Samsung. So, could be fun. I'll be posting the pics of the progress - keep your eyes peeled for some nifty stuff here in the future.

    I had an idea to do this for a airsoft helmet and mounting a cam on my gun.
