Iron Man by Paul-Shanghai Iron Man by Paul-Shanghai
Well my last drawing of 2012 (I think) - so I thought it better be a good one :)

This will be my entry into ilojleen's [link] 'Scene from your fav movie or series Contest!' and features the coming together of two great actors, who just happen to be two of my favourites also Samuel L (Muffa Fu&^er) Jackson and Robert Downey jr from one of my favourite films Iron Man.

I think this is my best work to date, so I would really like to hear your opinions and tips for how it could be improved.

******Competition******Competition******Competition******Competition****************
Just had an idea - the scene that is depicted is from the movie Iron Man (of course) but I changed one key item as I thought it would make a more interesting picture, I will donate 250 points to the person who sends me a note correctly identifying the 'obvious' change :)

*******UPDATE******UPDATE*****UPDATE*****UPDATE*******

Just uploaded an animation showing how I drew this, to take a look just press the thumbnail below;


An update to the competition, the clever person who highlighted the 'change' from the original scene in the movie was Maevethebrave [link] who wins 250points :)
They correctly identified that In the movie the coffee cup slightly obscured the Iron Man helmet, so I moved it to the right so that we could get a full view:) thanks to those that tried - many were correct, but unfortunately speed was a factor in winning!


All the usual suspects
Bristol Board A3
Range of mechanical and traditional pencils from 4H through to 8B
Blending Stump, erazers and plenty of blood sweat and tears :)
Time - about 10 hours, although I never really counted.

Loved doing this and managed to take photos at all key stages, so I will upload a short animation soon, and post the link here :)


Hope you like it? Merry Christmas :hug:

attention to detail is simply stunning in this picture.

if only pictures of this quality didn't take so long, maybe comics could look like this :huggle:

I started drawing almost 2 years ago - just rough sketches at first, so I guess really trying about 18 months ago.
Thanks for the comment :)

I do, very much. :) If you ever draw any females (particularly comic characters) and want someone to team up with to color them let me know. :) I'm often looking for good pencilers, inkers, and graphite artists to team up with.

Thanks Stacy - just took a look at your work, very, very cool :) no problem with joining up - however is it ok if I send you the line drawing to colour, and I then continue with the pencil shading? I reckon it would give an interesting view on the same piece? I usually complete the line drawing and take photo's, so it would be very easy for me to send these to you (I know you are already a fantastic pencil artist)
If you have any reference suggestions let me know :)

hahah Thanks, Paul. But I'm not very good at drawing. :) Most of the art that is in my gallery is just my color work with others' pencils or inks.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind teaming up for sure. I'm busy on commissions right now but when things slow down a bit a teamup would be cool. :D
