Once again because of family commitments i've been really busy, so have not had time to do any fanart drawings. So i've decided to draw something less time consuming (it's only A4 and no background), Robert Downey JR in his iron man costume, beaten bruised and bleeding. This is a shot from the new upcoming Iron Man 3 movie.
Drawing was done A4 bristol board with graphite standard and mechanical pencils.
Another amazing piece of art from an extremely talented illustrator. Nobody captures reality better and nobody makes such striking resemblances, as if the drawing wasn't a drawing at all, but a black and white photograph.
The composition leads your eye from the opened face mask, to the damaged helmet and finally, the face, the center of the drawing and quite a beautifully rendered likeness. Once again, the textures are lifelike and immaculate, the variation in materials rendered is remarkable and an interesting composition and excellent use of negative space make this another spectacular masterpiece. If this were music, it would be a symphony, written by Beethoven, himself.
I absolutely LOVE this pic. Being an Iron Man fan I may be somewhat partial towards this pic but I cant picture anyone saying there is something wrong with it. I like the whole battle ravaged theme you gave Iron Man. There are not many pieces of art out there which show him battle ravaged. Some people may say the cut below his eye looks weird but that is how an eye puffs up when there is a cut under it. (first hand experience, you don't wanna know...) You managed to nail the Robert Downey Jr. face well too.(no surprise in that !) As usual another fantastic piece of artwork, perfected down to the fine lies by a master. Great job!
