Being able to see the eyes makes all the difference between a robot and an Iron Man. Beautiful piece by the by.

Old-fashioned Iron Man is always the best. We really need you in Marvel again!

By the way, the word "character" seems to be written twice. Was it meant to be "entertainment" instead, as it is seen on some other commissions?

Some got "entertainment", some got "character" twice...

Metal that looks like metal... coolness. Any special trick to achieve that effect? It looks like you just let the brush flow loose... I don't know...

Do my eyes deceive me, or is that almost ALL PITT BRUSH (minus a few circles, and ovals here and there)?

GREAT work, btw.

Intense!  I really do miss the "regular" old Iron Man.  I totally hate the "Hi, I'm a real prick" Iron Man that's running around the Marvel U lately.

Saying that he's a skrull (if that's what they ultimately do) won't really earn them any points with me.

Nice illo, JB.  Very invincible of you.

I noticed recently that "Marvel Entertainment Inc" has become "Marvel Characters Inc."

One more step in the ongoing denial that they are a comicbook company.

Wonderful commission! Reminds me why I love the character. The classic red-and-gold armor is still my favorite. It's "superhero-y", but still clearly a high-tech suit of armor. I also love Kirby's original "clunky" design.

I hope to see the real Iron Man again some day. Like so many other great characters, he's been having some rough times in recent years.

Appropriate because I don't find them very entertaining and the all they really do is exploit the characters for money on all kinds of products other than comics.

Back to praising this commission:  great Iron Man!

…Iron Man #197 cover…

A.k.a. why colorists should not knock out the black
lines with color.

I think they used Flexographic printing for the interior coloring of that issue, too. Yikes!

This one looks Kirbyesque to me.  Very nicely done. You can feel the power coming off those hands!!!   That might make for a nice companion piece to this one.  Same pose, but different armor
