Iron Man + Steampunk = Awesome

There are very few things that I think look as cool as Steampunk art. I’ve never really read any of the books, besides Leviathan, which I’m not sure even counts.

Yesterday, Iron Man director Jon Favreau tweeted out the coolest Steampunk art I have ever seen — it’s a Steampunk version of the Iron Man suit!

The image is posted above, and you can click it for the full view.

I’m not sure who made it, but the link Mr. Favreau put up goes to a Flickr account, and apparently this won a contest with Marvel. Some of the comments on the page say that this isn’t really Steampunk. What do you think? Steampunk or no, it is pretty kick ass!

  2. The man behind the mask is Matt Silva. The suit actually originates from a short film I did, Heartless The Story of the Tin Man, with a Company called Whitestone Motion Pictures. The Original format was again that of the Tin Man, The Tin Man Suit was Designed by Bill Johnson, then sculpted by he and Matt Silva. After all that the two of them and myself and Johnathon Thorton came in to help mold, cast, and paint the Tin Man. The total time for the build of the Tin Man suit was about 2 weeks with mainly Bill, Johnathon, and Matt working around the clock. The Iron Man you see here is Matt’s modified remake of that same suit. The paint scheme and paint job where all of Matt’s design, and the lower torso and helmet are both heavily remastered versions built off the original. Check out the following people to see their amazing work

    Thanks so much for your support and compliments, The suit still has much room for improvement so keep your eyes peeled for future attempts!

  4. The suit was made by a fella I know named Matt Silva, who runs a small production company called Penny Dreadful Productions.

    He casted the original suit, then single-handedly turned it into the Steampunk Iron Man. (He’s also the guy wearing it in all of the pictures.)

  5. There also existed a steampunk version of Ironman in the second part of Marvel’s 1602.
