Celluloid Iron

Chad Townsend sent these in -- and what awesome artwork it is! In case you don't know, Chad was the designer on the recent Invincible Iron Man animated movie that came out earlier this year. And as he mentions in his email, he designed the look of the armour for that feature. Now, I haven't seen the movie yet (actually, my favourite Iron Man cartoon is the old '60's Marvel Heroes show -- especially the theme song!) but I'm definitely more inclined to do so now, having seen these cool designs. That first piece of toned concept art, especially, gets me in a fanboy lather. Check out his wonderful site for more examples of his design work from the film!

Thanks, Chad!

Iron Monkey!

Here's another fun one -- this one by talented part-time illustrator, Kyu Shim. I've known Kyu for years -- in fact, he's one of the reasons I started drawing comics when I got out of college. When I'd visit his studio back in the day, he'd routinely blow me away with his comic samples. The fact that his submission here has a monkey theme makes this one extra sweet. I love the way his armoured suit is banana-powered --just like mine.

Thanks, Kyu!
