What would it look like to be inside Tony Stark's Iron Man helmet during the climactic final sequence of The Avengers? This new collection of art and screenshots is the closest you'll ever come to seeing the final battle through Tony's eyes.
It's the work of designer Jayse Hansen, who also created all the beautiful screens you saw on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Helicarrier. Check out just about every screen in amazing detail.
From the artist's website:
This is just an image dump of Marvel approved stills and screenshots of my work on the film. I'll do a proper post soon - this is a fraction of the work - But I had the distinct pleasure of working with Cantina Creative, leading the design of the glass screens for the Helicarier in the Avengers. I also led the design and animation of the all new and upgraded Mark VII Hud. All work was done in Illustrator, After Effects and Cinema 4d.
Included are some partial explanations of how the HUD diagnostic functions, Variations of it in 'all clear' mode, and a 'battle mode', after the suit has suffered damage and new windows have popped up to show depleted weapon stores and hazardous environmentals and general.
The flight menu was designed with input from an A-10 Fighter Pilot. I like to keep my stuff accurate - while still taking design liberties that films afford.
I start all designs on paper so I included some ideas for the dock icons. When I sketch stuff out - I find it important to not use a ruler and give yourself 'permission to draw badly". In the final icons, the more detailed versions show system status based on the way they animate.
