The Mechanic by lrguy The Mechanic by lrguy
You can take away my suits, you can take away my home, but there's one thing you can never take away from me: I am Iron Man.
-- Tony Stark

after four months of hard graft it's finally finished. :la:
well, i say four months but taking into account i've been super busy trying to juggle multiple jobs at once and keeping up with some other work, it sounds about right. ;p

okay, so i could probably say a lot about this drawing, the main things being that this is by far the most hardest and most detailed work i've made yet. :faint:
some of the details in this managed to cripple me emotionally and creatively. ;D which is probably why i got a bit lazy and rushed some things towards the end.
but my absolute obsession with iron man helped me through it no worries. xD

this one's a bit bigger than a4 so i actually had to scan it in three parts, hopefully you can't see where i've tried to fix the scan lines too much. :p
the scan did kill some of the tones in there though, it does look a lot more smoother in real life.

dude, dude, dude, dude, dude!!!! this piece of art is mind blowing. to be honest, this even looks better and nicer than most colored art. im very fascinated by the fact that it took you months to draw this... honestly, i cant do any piece of art that will be able to take me 24 hours. i just lose intrest. but you didnt for this one.. you stuck by it and kept working... i mean, look at the water...IN BLACK AND WHITE!!!. bravo bravo. i must say, this is fantastic. definately going in my folder. its just amazing. keep up the good work

Breathtaking, can't even imagine it being in color, that would only detract from its jaw dropping glory.

Wow! So neat! I have to say, I love all the detail that you used on this. I really loved the movie Iron Man 3! Good work
