I am Ironman!!!!

I am Ironman! Well, not really. I actually wanted to try out for the part of Tony Stark in the movie. Come on, what guy growing up didn't want to be a billionaire playboy that likes to partake in a few adult beverages. ( I have to admit, now a days I prefer my current role of father and husband, but it would be nice to have a few Billion laying around)
Well needles to say that train got quickly derailed when I mentioned it to my wife. It's amazing how she doesn't even need to use words to communicate exactly what she is trying to say. Come on you married guys you know what I mean. It's the classic tilted head and penetrating stare. It actually means, "OK you moron, you're almost thirty years old, just got married and have a kid on the way. Not to mention a full time job that pays the bills. So sure, go ahead quit, move to California and be a waiter."
I hate it when she's right! Good thing she was. I think Robert Downey might have done a slightly more convincing job then a short Italian from Ohio who has never acted before.

Anyway my son was sitting on my lap and wanted me to draw a picture of Ironman. (He's a superhero nut like his dad, I'm so proud!) So I did the pencil sketch with his help. After he went to bed, I colored it in with prisma color pencils. One of these days I'll go digital or at least ink. I just haven't had the time to play around with it.

Hope you like it. Let me know what you think. Take care.

Ok I've loved the big green guy since I was a kid. He has always been one of my favorites. Come on, who hasn't wanted to just go nuts and smash some stuff at some point in their life? Ok....maybe it's just a guy thing.

I loved the second movie. Ed Norton is one of my favorites, so when they casted him as Bruce Banner I was pumped. The only thing that ticked me off was the few moments that the Hulk looked tired. It was almost like he wanted to quit. Come on, he's supposed to get even more ticked and trash everything in sight. Sorry, my bad comic dork moment.

Any way, I did one sketch with a #2 pencil, one in colored pencil and the last one was prismacolor pens and some pencil. Just trying a few new things. Hope you like it. The image didn't scan great, it's a little grainy. I'll try to fix it when I'm not dead tired. Take care.

Quick Sketch

Here is a quick sketch for one my characters I am working on. Getting closer, but he's not quite right yet. Gonna try to post some more stuff later this week. Had a chance to doodle a little last night. Take care.
