Ye Olde Iron Man

OK, so I wanted to do caricature of Robert Downey Jr. reminiscent of a portrait, and then I thought about traditional old portraits of men in suits of armour... a quick google found me a pic of a painting with the right feel:

And so this is the sketch for Ye Olde Iron Man pic:

Cool idea man and good likeness . . . interesting, your caricature is a far better likeness than the portrait . . . . looks like it will be a cool movie!

Thanks Jason - I remember reading somewhere that police artists who do sketches of suspects from witness descriptions are instructed to slightly caricature the main features mentioned because people will spot a likeness more often that way. So science is definitely on your side there!
