I'm working on an idea to incorporate an Iron Man suit into X-COM, here's my work in progress:

<<https://www.openxcom.com/mod/iron-man-super-suit#cmtx_form>>

If anyone is willing to help with the battlescape sprites I would greatly appreciate the help and collaboration, I've tried downsizing sprites I've found online and photoshop does a terrible job of blending and keeping a good balance of the edges and details.  I've come to realize that I'll have to draw the images by hand at the resolution needed, but I'm no great artist.

I'm currently looking into the sprite and graphic tools on this site now.

Thanks for a great community,

Cheers!

Your graphisms seem already nice. There is just the head I don't know exactly what you've try to do : the battlescape helm is open ?

I'd like to change the yellow and red parts in the battlescape to match the ufopedia graphic color locations, then add a better helm that looks like Iron man's, and I was thinking of changing the hover graphic to look more like Iron man sprites that have one leg bent and animated rocket coming out of his feet (maybe get it from the hover tank animation implementation) like this graphic I found here:

<<https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fmrbutka.net%2FJava%2Fsprites%2FCaptainAmericaandtheAvengers_Ironman.gif&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fmrbutka.net%2FJava%2Fsprites%2Fsprite.htm&h=309&w=351&tbnid=bI5sFmN035y9cM%3A&zoom=1&docid=nLZ93RTrw703PM&ei=8tf4U5qSL6Gi8AGz14CICQ&tbm=isch&client=ubuntu&ved=0CCIQMygGMAY&iact=rc&uact=3&dur=267&page=1&start=0&ndsp=49>>



Thanks for the interest... I know it looks fine, but I'm being a little bit of a perfectionist.

Cheers,
Simon

Here another couple of Iron Man sprites that I'd like to eventually take the concept from and resize to fit in with the battlescape.
