Iron Man by dfridolfs Iron Man by dfridolfs
Another piece prepared for FCBD.

Man alive did I draw a lot of Iron Man that day, go figure. To me, he's one of the more uninteresting chracters to draw. I mean, yes I'm sure the movie is great (will eventually see it), and he's cool in the comics. But I think it takes a certain artist to enjoy drawing the mechanical stuff. And that really isn't me. Same thing with Transformers....love the toon and toys, but would hate to have to draw or ink them.

So yeah, I ended up drawing this one for the heck of it. The head looks all bashed in, and it definitely has a bit of the Canete flavor to it (looking forward to picking up his run when it's collected in TPB). But yeah anways...here ya go.

And no...I still haven't see the movie. Jeez...quit asking :)

What ink do you use? It's so black! Mine always turns gray. >_<

Speedball Super Black. But you can always get it to look dark in the scan.

Well, the idea is that my university exams are next year, and for now I'm thinking of using ink as a medium and I need one that will be as black as possible without scanning. :)

Speedball is the one I use, but there's all sorts of brands and preferences. What I always tell people is to go to their art store and get a few different types to try out. You just never know which one you'll end up really liking.

Yes, and that's what I usually suggest when people ask me for this stuff, but I've tried various inks, and now I'm looking for branches or types I haven't heard off... like this speedball of yours. :)

Hey speaking of best work done yet, can you put that Golum (LOTR) picture you drew that I found Comic Arts website, not sure if you just inked, even so, it is the coolest piece of are I've seen in a long time, and if you don't believe me then you don't appreciate it, and thus should just sell it to me.
