Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 8
Here's one from the vaults. This was my first work for Marvel, completed way back in 2002, just before my senior year at RISD.
In order to render the chrome of Iron Man's arms, I used a trophy statue (from my cross country days) under similar lighting conditions, even going so far as to use the actual painting as the backdrop. I don't do this too much anymore, but at the time I was very concerned with being "accurate."
So why Iron Man today? Because I'll be going to the Marvel screening of the new movie later this afternoon. Sweet! I haven't taken any kind of break from painting and drawing for quite some time, so I figured I might as well make this one excuse. I'm currently on page 16 of Mythos: Captain America.
