Each new film featuring Ironman guarantees one thing…at least 1 shiny new armor! Avengers: Age of Ultron was no exception. as Everyone knows by now, we got 2…the long awaited Hullkbuster(!) and the mk45 (my new personal fave!)

the 1st two images look like early CGI renders…nice and super clean.

The 2nd batch…well those are from the 1/6th scale Hot Toys collectible figure…as you can clearly see in the tagging on the pics 😛

A trio of Federation Starships…

As a child, i could spend  hours drawing starships from Star Trek. As the years went by, new shows sometimes introduced new starships, which inspired new ideas for my own. And the movies, bigger and better ships. JJ Abrams reboot in 2009 was no exception. It was hard to find any reference material on the re-imagined Enterprise…mostly fan-made artwork was all i could find. But it helped to inspire these three ships.

PioneerClass001The 1st design, my Pioneer Class, is actually a re-imagining of an old design of my own (which I will post soon, hopefully), using the design elements of the new Enterprise.

AkulaClas001The 2nd, the Akula Class, was referenced from the video game Star Trek D-A-C.

PaladdinClass0013rd we have the Paladin(?) class, a re-imagining of the same class from the TOS era.

Pen and ink here, drawn the old-fashioned way

(Netflix) Daredevil Costume Concept Art

555a8172ce563Ryan Meinerding – love his concept artwork. Seems to be one of Marvel’s Go-To guys. Here, we have his concept for Matt Murdock’s Daredevil costume from the Netflix series…from the glimpses I have seen, it seems to have made a literal translation to the screen…Cant wait to see for myself. I am up to episode 12, but agreed to wait until she catches up (we just watched episodes 1 & 2 together last weekend)

a Civil War is coming…

Captain-America-Civil-War-Promo-Art-costume-first-look iron-man-bleeding-edge 1KgAykv D5QT47V Captain-America-3-Civil-War-Cap-vs-Iron-Man-artwork      Avengers: Age of Ultron hasnt been in the theaters very long, and already production has begun on the next chapter in the MCUCaptain America: Civil War. The film should be loosely based on the Marvel Comic Book event of the same name, but tailored to fit in with the characters and stories established in the MCU films. I am very much looking forward to this one…and we have some visuals to gaze upon already…Cap in his new threads (a slight change from AOU), Iron Man‘s newest armor…and Falcon’s new suit sans wings (glimpsed at the end of AOU)

An Amazing Playlist – Bee Movie Triple post

One of the fun things about CGI animated films…the music. Oftimes over the top, fun and exciting…and this is a fine example. The movie itself was ok, my oldest daughter enjoyed it back then…what stuck out for me was the music by Rupert Gregson-Williams. Bigger than i would have expected for a movie like this…wonderful brass bits…you can hear the droning of the bees…well thats what i get from some of it…and Land that Plane…appropriately heroic for my tastes 🙂

An Amazing Playlist – Heroes – Avengers: Age of Ultron

This is the perfect follow up to yesterday’s post.

Saw the film last saturday night…Awesome! Listened to the soundtrack yesterday, Doubly Awesome! I got kind of excited when i heard that Brian Tyler would be scoring Avengers: Age of Ultron. And then…mention of Danny Elfman being brought in to score some “additional music”. An interesting addition, as their music styles are so galactically different.

Well, that “additional music” just happens to be the best music in the film, and the soundtrack…and this track here is the best of the best (in my opinion, anyway). The track title says it all. It plays as an evolution of the theme composed by Alan Silvestri for the 1st Avengers film. It’s very…non-Elfman-like. And I cant get enough of it.

Oh, and if you havent seen the movie, do so…soon, its awesome!
