Man of Science by astarayel Man of Science by astarayel
Another Avengers piece! :la:

Everyone's favorite "genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist."

Iron Man introduced me to the entire franchise way back when it first came out. (Fours years ago?) RDJ = Tony Stark. They are the same person. I love him.

This was a fun piece to do--I knocked it out in 2 days because I had so much fun painting all those little lights. (Ignore my lazy background skillz). Hope you like it!

Reference from Iron Man 2.

Iron Man/Tony Stark (c) Marvel

Great artwork! :D I like the background too: less dark (different from your other paintings) and yet not so clear that it would reduce protagonism to the main figure (I'm curious about which program(s) you use to make this digital art painting). It's a bit weird to look RDJ without skin wrinkles.


BTW: I like your other works too. ;^)

Thanks for your comments! I used Photoshop for this piece :) And I agree, his face is a little smooth--a little more love to his very attractive "life lines" would make this even better. I might have to consider some updates later on down the line!

I just felt the need to comment on this again, since I somehow only now realized how brilliant this painting really is. You managed to capture Tony's expression so perfectly! The shading and lighting is spot on, and I can't even tell you how much I love how you painted his eyes. Marvellous. Outstanding. You really have some mad painting skills.

My dear, I love your art.

You are too wonderful for words. Thank you so much!

I was rather fond of this moment in the movie, since we caught him less as the "genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist" and more as the kid who loves science.

I love you! :heart:

This is picture is so lovely! I don't even know where to start.
Well, then again, I do. Love the fact that you depicted him, as the title put it, as the "Man of Science", not the "Man of Iron" and not the "Man of Ladies." We often get to see his badass and his cocky side, but what really endeared him to me (well, okay, besides his cockyness and his big mouth) is his genuin love for science. You captured that so well in his awed expression in this picture. Where others stare awed into the sky or at other people, Tony stares awed at that virtual-3-d-computer-interface-pop-out-thingy. (Does it has a name? I'm so stupid.) It shines just like it did in the movies, yet your own style gives it an eery quality.
As for quality, you have it in tons. The style, the colours, the details and the realism. I already sound repepetative, but its all there and I love it. Thank you truely much for sharing it!

Thank you so much for such a lovely comment! :hug:

I agree, he gets drawn so often as the "genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist," that he is. But he's also a person who adores learning and is in awe of building things. I think that's why he's so cool to me, too. I wish I knew what the computer thing was called, too! (Heck, I wish I had one, because it would be amazing).

Your comment truly made my week, thank you so very much!!

See, we have the same taste. :) Whenever I look at his expression I just have to smile.
(Oh, damn yes! After seening Iron Man the first time I was pretty sullen that there's no way possible I could ever have a floating-computer-thingy, too.)
Your picture made my week as well, were even I'd say :3

Anyway, this is simply fantastic. I love the painterlyness ( I know, that's not a word XD) of the background, it suits the picture well!
