    Harper, that is the raddest thing of all time.

    Iron man kubrick

    As Iron man, Tony Stark would feel invincible but as a himself he wouldn't be, Kubrick would focus on the man trying to become invincible in real life through self medication.

    Some major short-cutting due to lack of time, but here's the general idea:

    Stanley Kubrick's IRON MAN

    @hambot the only words that are coming to mind after seeing this are "FUCK!" and "WOW!". Amazing piece.

    First timers my Aunt Fanny, these folks know their way around a movie poster. Really great work from Harper, Dronecraft and Hambot.

    Hambot, I am curious about the thoughts behind the upside-down credits?

    @oldhat: thanks!
    @FredG: re: upside down credits - I wanted the realistic fidelity of credit text, but didn't want to write fan fiction for them, so it was my way of not drawing attention to them by making them gibberish. Perhaps that strategy didn't quite work out . . . ?

    I know I'm no Bob McGinnis but I tried ... Did not think of the Barbarella image until it come up on Joe Jusko's facebook page this morning.

    I'm saying this as someone who can't draw anything more complex than a stick figure and with a real appreciation for many entries in this thread : are you supposed to use existing imagery from the redesigned character ? I thought the initial conditions were that you only knew the name of the (imaginary) movie and who the director is...

    Anyway, there are some very cool things in this thread, even for someone who's not really into iron man :).

    @valdopeixoto--I was waiting for that one. Thanks.

    @hambot--you could also claim that the upside-down text relates to an element of the story to be revealed in the film.

    I struggled with this aspect myself, in that I didn't really follow the requirement of knowing ZERO about the character when designing my poster. I kind of figured that since lots of Kubrick's films were derived from existing fiction works that there would be SOME idea of what Iron Man was by the designer, and maybe skew the perception of that. I had a lot easier time taking David Lynch's SPIDER MAN idea to a new place than I did here.

    I approach it like any other assignment - new movie, Kubrick, Iron Man. I don't know the plot or setting but know what Iron Man is and know what Kubrick movies are like and go from there. Half the time I don't know what I'm illustrating for anyway,"hey can you draw a guy juggling shopping carts by tomorrow?", then no more information 'cause the AD is way too important to be bothered with detailed explanations, "you're the artist you figure it out", and I'm all like "I can't read your mind" and they're all "do you want the job or not?", and I'm like "yeah", then they go "Do it then". That kind of stuff.

    Sorry I have the flu.
