In honor of the upcoming Iron Man movie and the new monthly comic series by writer Matt Fraction and artist Salvador Larroca, Project: Rooftop and Westfield Comics held the Iron Man: Invincible Upgrade fan-art contest.
They've just chosen the Grand Prize Winner: the artwork to the left, drawn Daniel Krall.
What Daniel’s done here is not simply show off a neat alternate version of the character. With this one illustration, he’s rebuilt him, including character traits and building a story that informs the design. This Iron Man is the Howard Hughes-inspired Tony Stark. He’s proud of his work. He’s bringing us into the future. The actual design goes far beyond the fun of this magazine ad illo, though. It looks functional. It’s stainless steel and rivets.
