I was not to happy with my original drawing I did a few weeks back, so i decided to go back and reshade it and darken the background. I know some people may prefer the original over this one but i personally like this better. This is a graphite Robert Downey JR in his iron man costume, beaten bruised and bleeding, which is a shot from the new upcoming Iron Man 3 movie.
Drawing was done A4 bristol board with graphite standard and mechanical pencils.
The potency of this is astounding and encompassing, A true warrior put to the test, weary, but never beaten. Tony F@#$ing Stark. The sheer emotion and heavy burden of what it really means to be a hero is absolutely captured within this sketch. this masterpiece. As always, my breath is stolen and i am humbled once more a million times a second.
How long did this one take you??? I'm curious. My stuff usually takes me maybe 3 hours, but i think i work too fast, i don't have any patience so i never do drawing with too much detail. But this looks like it took you days! Great work.
