Iron Man - Tony Stark by shonechacko Iron Man - Tony Stark by shonechacko
Iron Man - Tony Stark - Robert Downey Jr.

8 hrs on Bristol Vellum. I have been using Bristol smooth for a long time now and wanted to try a different paper. I think I will continue using it for pictures which are too dark.

Pencils used :- 2B mechanical mostly and 9XXB pencil for the really dark areas.

Thanks! That really helped. I just started drawing. How long have you been drawing? :) And what's your age when you started?

I am 33 now. I used to draw when I was in school but did give it much importance. But I have started doing it again seriously in 2010. I think you can be a good artist if you practice a lot.

Oh okay. :) I'm drawing the exact same picture and when I look at it, it looks okay but if I look at it in the mirror, it looks so off. What can I do? :( Yeah, I've been practicing a lot and thanks for your time. Your drawings are incredible.

I have heard people saying that looking at a mirror can help get the proportions correct. However I have never tried it. My thinking is that nobody is going to look at my drawings using a mirror. So how it looks when viewed directly only matters.

Did you check the measurements using a scale between the key points? After you have the measurements correct, the correct amount of shading will make it look good. Shading can trick the eye and you need to make sure that the shadows are correctly copied from the reference photo. A little bit extra(or less) shadow under the cheeks or lips or eyes can make a person look totally different.

Hey, I do freehand but I'm finding it hard to get the shape of the face. Do you do a certain technique? Grid or something. :) Thanks. Your drawing is stunning.

Thank you!

I try using a reference picture which is the same size as my drawing. I use a scale to measure the key points of the image from each sides of the paper. The key points I measure are the corner of both eyes, the bottom of the ear, the nostrils, the starting of the hairline and the corner of the lips. when I am sure that I have all these points correctly in place(using dots) then I proceed with the outline. Hope this helps you.
