TRDL 2011 Series No. 65 - Madame Masque / Iron Woman [Redesign]

This piece was done for the Nemesis jam on the TRDL R3 Forum and TRDL-R3-WeeklyJam group on dA. The objective was to take a hero or villain and dress them in some recognizable way, as their main nemesis. Think Joker in a batsuit. I chose the classic Iron Man villain Madame Masque, and designed her a version of the old red and golds from the Stark Armory.

Madame Masque is one of my favorite Iron Man villains. I always struggled with the fact that her mask, like Destro’s, is pliable. But it worked in this redesign very well. I did a redesign of the Iron Man MK II armor in a more contemporary form (this was the ‘horned helmet’ version, which had flares over the eyebrows and rivets along the brow) since it worked nicely with Madame Masque’s own mask design which also has that rivet motif. I added some thorn-type imagery in the jagged cut lines on the sides of the mask and on the armor gauntlet and boot cowls and again in the chest beam. Overall, I thought it came out pretty cool. I love that she still has the facemask, and it works so well with the armor.
