This is the third and final picture in my trilogy of paintings depicting hybrid Marvel and Star Wars characters.
For this one I’ve combined elements of Iron Man’s costume with an Imperial Stormtrooper to make… Iron Trooper!
Like my Darth Doom picture before this – I’m not the first person to imagine how these characters could look combined – but I had a lot of fun creating a design that balances visual traits of both characters and I hope it shows my ability to take familiar concepts and create a new spin on them.
This is a low-res version of the original which was drawn in Photoshop (from an original pencil and paper drawing) using a Wacom pad. I used Sketchup to create a 3D version of the tunnel that the character’s standing in – which I then exported as a 2D image and colored in Photoshop.
Star Wars and Stormtroopers were created by George Lucas with the character’s design based on concept illustrations by Ralph McQuarrie; Iron Man was created by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber, Don Heck and Jack Kirby.
