I think it is cool to se people make Iron Man armor if they make it them self and not from something already existing. I encourage people to use their creative skills to make something from the bottom and up that they can call their own.
BTW the Avatar you got is our 2nd Generation armor we made a while back. Its a while since i seen that anywere.... Very few of them exist in reality.
I forgot to tell everyone here that my helmet is now FREE! Thanks to all that purchased it, but due to massive amounts of email and pm's I'm offering the file to everyone for free.
download the A4 size here.
download the Letter size here.
Also, I have kind of abandoned building more on the Iron Man models for now. I do have an even more accurate I.M. helmet model in the works. The pep model will include hinge patterns for the face and chin, as well as the articulation on the back of the neck as seen in the concept art.
New bucket preview! Pending a few tweaks, This should be much smoother overall than my last helmet, and more accurate to what is on screen. I have shortened the back of the head and there is more geometry in the face and head portions of the model. My next step is to model the mechanisms (hinges etc.) to open the mask, jaw, and neck. I will release two versions of this helmet. One will include the hinges and the other will be essentially what you see in the pics. This is modeled from scratch, and not just an edited version of the other helmet. I hope to have it finished in a few days.
To those who have purchased my other Iron Man helmet, you will receive this one in your email free of charge before I release it on the forums.
The time and effort was mostly spent on tracking down good references. I still can't find a good shot of the back of the head. The only references I have found are of replicas or bad angles for the back of the helmet, so I just guestimated.
Ya good references are hard to find some times. If you look at the back of a lot of IIron Man helmets they all vary and differ from each other. I'm working on a war machine helmet (sculpt) and there is a lot of guestimation work.
Here's a video of my new Iron Man helmet. The "ears" are modeled inside of the helmet (to make it easier to see when I unfolded it in Pepakura), so they are separate objects which aren't visible in the video. I will have it available for purchase on my blog as soon as I figure out how much I want for it. I'm still working on the hinges, and I've decided that there isn't enough room inside the helmet for the mechanics to make the neck telescope in on itself and still fit your head inside, but I've modeled the hinge for the mask to open properly. It turns out it was easier to do than I had expected. I will make the hinged version available at a later date.
When can we see the rest of the armor to download? I have the helmet, the shoulder, the biceps, and I believe the forearm. I am looking for the rest. When I do start putting this together, what size paper should I use? Also, would paper machae work the same as resin and fiberglass?
I have built it, resined it and hardened it. I have removed the lower neck peice and it fits my head which is rather large (I wear 7-3/4 baseball hats). It's tight on the ears but I believe if you were to use braces while resin'ing you could widen it a little but other than that it fits good and there is a lot of room as far as depth goes. Another masterpeice by Dungbeetle.
I feel like an idiot. but i have no idea how to pepakura, what paper I need, what program I need. if someone can PLEASE help me id greatly appreciate it. My email address is email@example.com please email me directly so i get it faster, thanks.
