    Following the example of 2001, where there was a straightforward one-sheet with concept art, and "the ultimate trip" version later on, let's say Iron Man had the former with a big picture by a Marvel artist, and this is the latter. Done entirely in PhotoPaint.

    I read the comments.

    The FMJ/Avengers crossover speech comment was good, though.

    Personally, I think they could have picked some more posters from the thread that would have wowed the i09 crowd even more.
    Still, it's nice to see the thread get some action, even with some off comments.

    Iron Man Remake/Remodel (Parody)

    Kubrick reminds me of great video covers, I did a tribute to that. Iron Man is there too.

    Wow, Lord, nice one! Really nice one!

    It's funny; I just talked to a friend of mine who is deep into Kubrick, and he wasn't at all surprised that so many of these entries have gone towards emulating the posters and advertising aspects of the movies rather than the movie content themselves. He felt that Kubrick's movie subjects were so scattered across genres that he didn't really have a visual "style" in the same way that Hithcock, or David Lynch or David Fincher have a very identifiable movies visuals style. I know that this is very arguable, but I found it interesting that someone deep into the minute details of how Kubrick worked would agree about Kubrick's visual style being more HOW he shot rather than WHAT he shot (which sounds very clumsy, and is probably another huge argument)

    Thanks a million Paul, your own is fantastic too, great job. Everyone has done some mighty work on this one.

    It's for the very reason you mention that I decided on a VHS box design. I spent years as a kid intrigued by that Dr. Strangelove cover, and eventually was astonished by the indescribable richness of the movie it contained. I found Kubrick to be one of those rare kinds of artists capable of eliciting his art and style from anything he had to work with, as you said: the "HOW" being more significantly Kubrick than the "WHAT". My cover is based on two shots from the movie, and I really wanted to draw a "Kubrick shot", as well as the nostalgic strings the Kubrick VHS covers pull for me (and hopefully others) as it was an era I feel his movies help define.
