The Futurist by ISG-Art The Futurist by ISG-Art
This turned out to be more of an experimental thingy than I had planned...
I just wanted to draw a picture of Robert Downey Jr. that everyone hadn't done yet. So I got a shot of him lying on the ground after saving the world in the Avengers, got on it, and that was gonna be the end, half of an A4 sheet. But then I decided to doodle on the background... And there came the Chitauri ship and all the rest.
And finally the colours, cus everything was too dark. The red is actually painted on top of a quite thick layer of graphite, with aquarelle pencils. Which makes it all wrong.

(I̶ ̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶m̶i̶x̶e̶d̶ ̶f̶e̶e̶l̶i̶n̶g̶s̶ ̶r̶e̶g̶a̶r̶d̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶d̶r̶a̶w̶i̶n̶g̶ :shrug: Not anymore, I've grown very fond of it!)

Also, The Futurist is an awesome album by RDJ, hence the title, plus his futuristic (and HAWT) Iron Man looks :drool:

Reference pictures used: screencaps from The Avengers movie
Graphite, coloured aquarelle pencils and white gel pen
Size A4

Really enjoy that.
He seems just smoking something absolutly gorgeous x)

Seriously, feelings are written on his face and escaping for his mind. Just perfect.
Motifs are also amazing, as texture...
And colours, of course; red and yellow are just fantastic.

Thanks THANKS fot that picture :3

I don't think the red makes it all wrong. No. If the red was brighter and all of the helmet was that red would be wrong. Also when you would've done the whole drawing in b&w. But how it is now, it's awesome ;-)

Thank you so much :hug: I'm actually much happier with this now than I was when I finished it. But the fact that I painted it red on top of an almost black thick layer of graphite, kind of ruined the metallic flow to it, even with all the nicks and dents it's supposed to have after the minor kill-all-the-aliens-and-carry-a-nuke-to-outer-space thingie :giggle: If colouring it hadn't been a sort of last minute call, it could have gone better, that's all
Anyway, I'm really glad you like it :)
