'The Avengers' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist 'The Avengers' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist
After 3 months of practiseing and using graphite, i decided to try put all of the techniques i learned during that time into this 'Avengers' drawing. And after a tough 90 hours over 9 days I have finally finished it.

When i was younger I was a massive comic book fan and i really liked the avengers (it was not one of my favourites but the hulk was). But i was sceptical that all those characters could be brought together succesfully into one film. But after seeing the 'Avengers' i was proved wrong and was blown away. The last hour is probably the best action sequences and CGI i have seen in a movie. And the hulk in my eyes completely stole the film. Making this my movie of 2012 and my 2nd favourite superheroe movie behind TDK.

This drawing is in homage to the last epic battle scene. I did not want to just re-create the poster, so i got 4 posters i liked and mixed them together to create a whole unique one. I also only wanted the 4 main avengers walking torwds you and the battle raging on behind. With the stark building (again) and the burnig plane in the background (which has the other two avengers in,like in the movie). And on the top right i decided to put the huge leviathon aliens coming towards the avengers (which is not on any poster). With missiles and meteriots blowing up the city.

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

The drawing was done on A3 Bristol Board paper using standard and mechanical graphite pencils.

The reference i used are: For the Hulk, Thor and Captain America [link]. For Iron man (will need to get).
For the background buildings and plane [link]. For the meteroits and missiles showering down and foreground [link]. Leviathon was from drawing from the movie whilst paused.

First of all, wow. This piece immediately called to me from the newest deviations page. This is a beautiful composition. The Avengers stand out in the foreground, seemingly calm while chaos is erupting behind them. It's amazing. Your technique is awesome. Captain America's shield looks shiny as does Iron Man, the explosions in the back look like they are really exploding, and the subtle smoke/dust in front of the Avengers' feet is spot on. The Hulk is what stood out to me the most. You did a fantastic job on him. His astonishing stature and those veins really make an impact. The shading and contrast is perfect. The ONLY constructive criticism I can even try to offer is that Thor's likeness to the movie Thor seems just the tiniest bit off, and I can't even complain about that because of how amazing everything else is. Seriously, awesome job.

This work of the avengers is amazing to the detail. The meterorites showering in the background and the explosions are excellent special effects and bring an impact to the work's scenario. Zooming in you can see the structures that don't take away from the characters but are still well defined. There is a lot of care done on the various textures, and you can distinguish the metals from the hairy chest. Wonderful shadings. The faces are a little stiff though, and Iron Man might need more neck. The legs might need more attention (they appear a little lanky). Overall it's beautiful! Great work!
