'Iron Man' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist 'Iron Man' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist
Firstly i would just like to thank my watchers who helped me again, to perservre during another long and tedious drawing process which i regularly posted on DD (they know who they are).

This is a graphite drawing of 'Iron Man'. Altough his not one of my favourite superheroes, I decided to reluctantly jump on the bandwagon and finally draw him. And i've seen numerous drawings of iron man on DD, some of which are incredible which is another reason why i was intialy reluctant to draw him.

So I decided to make mine different and unique from the rest by adding the 'Stark industry' building right behind him. And have Iron Man look like his hovering above the city keeping a watchfull eye. Which is something have not seen anyone do yet (i hope).

I'm gonna take a rest from 'fan art' for a week or two and start doing some practiseing drawing celebrity portraits (which is my weakness).

Here are some of my other 'fanart' graphite drawings.





My 'Spiderman' graphite drawing from last week can be found here [link].

The drawing was done on A3 bristol board with standard and mechanical graphite pencils.

"Wow." That's the first words that escape my lips as I observe this masterful illustration. Indeed "wow" sums it up even, though so much more can be said for this. The textures, sheen, surfaces and lighting are immaculate. The composition draws you in, consuming you like a black hole until you're there, with Iron Man himself. This drawing has dimension, emotion and an incomparable impact, with perfect depth perception and a background that tears into the real word from the canvas. This could very well be a movie poster or the picture on the next film. The only thing I really have to say about this is; "Well done!"

I am a HUGE fan of Iron Man so it's kind of obvious that I like this piece of art. This is the Mark 4 suit if I am not mistaken. I quite like the detailing you did int the groove in his mask, revealing a few wires in the gaps. The proportions on this are spot on. I also like the fact that you put the Stark Tower in the background and if my eyes are not deceiving e there are people huddled together watching him from the roof, just above the letter "R" in STARK.
Great job as always...

The shading! Wow! I wish I knew how to shade like that! His armour looks genuinely metallic!

Great work. I happen to come across these pages when I noticed your great drawing of Iron Man. I don't know why you bring yourself down when it comes to portraits. You kicked it with Uma Thurman and all the others. You've got some great talent. Spider Man must have taken some time with the tedious work involved. Fantastic!

I suddenly feel self-concious of my artwork...
But I LOVE IT! I have never seen something drawn in such detail, let alone in pencil!
How were you able to do it without the graphite smearing and smudging the paper?

:iconpen-tacular-artist:
Pen-Tacular-Artist Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Thanks, never feel self conscious about your artwork, just use that energy to practice and improve. To not smudge i spray fixative evertime i finish a particular section. And then put a plain sheet of paper over it so my arm does not ttouch it. I give more i depth advice to my watchers, so if you want anymore advice, just add me to your watch and ask.

OMG! That is so amazing! I love Iron Man! And I am not one of though's lame people that saw the movie once and think they know everything about him. I actually read a lot of the comics. I wish that they had more of Happy in the movie because he was really funny and cool.
