The Masculine Beauty of Superhero Figure, Part 1
The modular design of Iron Man’s armor lent itself really great to a sexy redesign. Tons of clean lines to replace metal plates with some hot, hot bare skin and also anatomy-inspired detailing that served as a reference to painting his musculature.
I also decided while getting rid of the whole helmet might be against keeping Tony’s hero persona iconic, I did leave out the lower part, giving it the jawline from the figure’s creepily realistic replacable Robert Downey Jr. head.
The only actual changes to metal pieces on his costume I did were:
- moving those glowy things under his pecs to right over his nipples – glowy nipple armor for the win!
- changing the shape of his shoes to super pointy heels (also very smol size, because if female designs aren’t allowed to have feet proportional to their bodies, why should male?)
- giving him an oversized codpiece, so that we know he’s very confident in his masculinity 🙃
While I went lazy on the rendering of repainted parts, I’m still quite happy with the results. Hope you guys agree.
