Picture Friday-- Iron Man

Tony Stark, "Iron Man. That's kind of catchy. It's got a nice ring to it. I mean, it's not technically accurate. the suit is a gold titanium alloy, but it's kind of provocative; the imagery anyway." (from Iron Man)

In case you people haven't noticed, I've sort of been on an Avengers high recently. So yesterday I was cleaning my room, listening to the Iron Man soundtrack... and I decided to draw him.

    (If you can't read it, the writing above his head says, "A wise man once said, "Is it better to be feared or respected?" And I say, is it too much to ask for both?")

    I began by drawing all the basic shapes of it, the egg-shaped helmet, his torso was teardrop shaped, his shoulder a very large circle... And I tried to make it as accurate as possible. And proportioned correctly.

     It wasn't until I started doing trying to get Iron Man suit aspects of it that I wondered if this was that great of an idea. I mean, can you see all the crevices? And different angles? And the nuts and bolts? Eeesh. It's hard.

   About an hour into it, this was how my sketch looked:

   Yeah, I thought it looked pretty okay.

    I outlined it in black pen...

And then I started shading. (In pencil, so I could erase if I messed up.) This also took about an hour.

Finally I started the coloring in process. I had to combine orange, grey, and purple to the the suit color. It took a while. But I think it turned out awesomely.

Just sayin'.

As usual, if you click on the picture, it will open up bigger in a different screen. =)

What do you think? Pretty good? Fairly accurate? AWESOME? lol.. Be honest.

God bless, people!
