With all the hype that has been ringing around the IRON MAN 3 movie, I was again inspired to do my own share in this Marvel hero madness. Frankly, I didn’t like the movie that much maybe because I was expecting something more after the action-packed Avengers movie released earlier. But well, after digesting the story line (which I think is quite similar with ‘The Dark Knight Rises’) and Robert Downey’s superb acting, once again I was startled. Nonetheless, I’m still a fan and there’s nothing I can do but to appreciate the film. So by now, I guess you already have an idea on what subject my first Toy Project would be. Let’s proceed.
After unpacking my Iron Man 2 Movie: Mark VI action figure, I took some pictures using my Canon 600D with 18-55mm lens. I tried my best to give it a striking pose but due to my toy’s limited articulation, here are just some of the images I got.
Toy Iron Man by Hasbro
I used some stock images(credits to the owners) that are mostly member contributions from DeviantArt.com. Just put these stocks into my composition along with my toy iron man.The goal is to be pretty much like sugar, creamer and coffee mixed all together; you know it’s there, but it’s hard to decipher which is which. I can’t really tell how it is but I know you know what I ment.
The Finished Products
I used Adobe Photoshop CS5 for the editing and compositing. Just with the handy-dandy masking technique, proper placement of stock images, few touches of gradient maps and color corrections- voila! Here are the finished products.
Hope you enjoy this post though the images aren’t all that perfect. Anyway, this is just the start.
More Toy Projects to come!
