Alrighty boys and girls. Time for you to help out your old uncle Kinsei.
Thats right. I'm here to bounce some ideas and get some quick feed back. who'd a thunk, right?

So I ran in to an old teach the other day and in our course of conversation he mentions he has a podcast. Tales of the Smoking Chiwawa, and are looking to update the logo.

I'm going through our conversation quick because, well I damn well please to.

So He asks If I could give it a shot. Their current logo was done by another artist I went to high school with and one of his other former students. So their is also a little pride involved with this.

cause we artist just love good long pissing contests

Anyway I got the Base chiwawa done, and I'm pleased with it.
Now comes the fun part, putting it in an Iron Man costume. Thus the title Iron Chiwawa.
I really want to get this at least to the start of the inking stage today, so I can color it a bit tomorrow. So lets take some art, throw it against the wall and see what splatters.

Comments, critiques, and ideas GO!

Good idea. Put his front paw up to show the lite up 'palm' (like the little inset pic) the way dogs do when they 'shake' paws.

Actually, I think the suit should have a nose too

What color would the nose be? Anyway, Handsome Cat, that's pretty damn awesome, so far. have to agree with bigjonny, though. I think a nose would make it more like a chihuahua.

An iron cigar would look pretty stupid, just do it helmetless. Tony Stark always walks around without one on.

NUH-UH! IRON CIGARS ER TERERLLY ERSERM!!!!!

No, but in all seriousness, I would have to disagree. Though, why not lift up the visor? It would indicate the helmet is still there, but he's just taking an iron smoke break!

I was originally thinking of just having the face plate gone, kind of like this, But I have also worked up a somewhat simple and "cute" head shot too. I'm hoping to get a few more designs down before I send it to my client for approval.
I really want to get a "Look" down for the Chihuahua down because it seems he has a second theme he wants me to do next and its a StarTrek Redshirt Chihuahua. so I really want to make the design consistent between the two.

All of these are suppose to be be clean and a little cartoony. He wants to eventually try putting them on tshirts and such.

Here is is an example of the Helment.

Dude, that is AWESOME! No, I'm bein' for reals, here! I would totally buy that as a T-Shirt, provided it's fully colored and all that.

Lack of a nose is one of the most prominent features of the iron man mask. There are enough other discernible features on a chihuahua to keep it recognizable. Adding a nose is unnecessary and in this cat's opinion, a mistake. meow.

While the original mask contains no nose and suits the human suit, I feel that on an animal, it would alienate features (as in, to make them appear alien). Seriously, the example that you provided looks less chihuahua, and more Yoda/ET

I'm a fan of the open helmet compromise. Perhaps with a side of Tony Stark hair?
