Learn how to draw Iron Man, a popular superhero character in the Marvel comics, with this easy step by step tutorial.
Iron Man has appeared as the star of his own comic book series, as a regular guest in other popular comics (most notably in the The Avengers), in animated films and television series, and in live-action motion pictures.
Now fans of Iron Man can learn how to draw him in this famously hi-tech suit. In real life, it’s pretty complex, but this new tutorial simplifies the pieces, without losing any of his very cool overall look. The boots, gloves and helmet all become much easier to draw when the focus is just on the main shape, and not all the bits and pieces that are inside. Those looking for an extra challenge cane even try a plane or two in the background.
(Note: Students are also getting some good symmetrical drawing practice when they take this project on – diagonal lines, curves, geometric shapes and more.)
