Materials: ballpoint pen (black, blue, red, green)
Time: 45 minutes
Reference: Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark in Iron Man (2008). For simplicity, I chose a recognizable male face on straight angle with facial hair – adding more facial hair allowed relatively easy adjustments in lower face shape despite being unable to erase.
Comments: first completed drawing since 2011 and first human face ever attempted. No pencil, no eraser. It’s certainly not great – facial proportions somewhat distorted, shading very rough – but it’s a start…
“We make our own demons.”
– Tony Stark (Iron Man 3, 2013)
