I've been here for a little while and lately all of your work has been inspiring me to get something actually completed.
I'm becoming a real life superhero (there was an HBO documentary about them if you're interested in finding out more), and my theme is essentially "middle class Iron Man". While coming up with a design, I came across the cover of "Iron Man By Design" #1, and I immediately feel in love with it.
Being the amateur I am, I didn't exactly know where to start, but from what builds I've started (War Machine for a friend, Magneto helmet, HEV suit) peps are just the easiest thing to go with, at least for now.
I requested assistance from the 3D modelling forum on 4chan, and lo and behold, they delivered:
Only one slight problem, they did it in zbrush, which is WAY too high poly for my needs, so if anyone out there could perhaps create a low poly cage, or just decimate while making sure it maintains the right dimensions, it be GREATLY appreciated. The model can be downloaded here.
But aside from the request about the model, this thread will also be showing off the WIP and completed build, as well as showing off the actual armoring/tech I'll be building into my suit.
