IRON MAN by weshoyot IRON MAN by weshoyot
okay...so i happened to enjoy the new iron man movie...and apparently i dont draw enough robots...so here!

edit*...the point came up of 2 minor things i had issues with this film...and what better place to write about 'em than here, on DA... since it's relevant...

you know the first prototype steampunk-type iron man he creates? he's made of iron right?? i mean, tony stark was welding scrap metal right? so wouldn't bullets go through iron? or am i wrong??? the fact that these scenes looked so rad made that thought spill out my right ear rather than linger...but that's numero uno....

the second issue was the goddamn "hole-in-the-shirt-for-my-bright-shiny-chest-piece" BS....i mean christ! I dont think a man would cut out circular holes in his hanes shirts just to spotlight the fricken thingy in his chest...and then half way through the film (perhaps after realizing any arm movements he makes stretches the hole and you see flesh part) they decide "to hell with the holes" and just let the shirt go over the damn thing....maybe penny got sick of cutting holes...perhaps I'm OCD....but that bugged the hell out of me the whole time. It's like 'robin hood men in tights' with the king and his mole...

mechanical pencil & sharpie on bristol

(and yes, i'll be coloring this puppy!)

First off I love your picture!!!!!

I'm a :nerd:, so I can help with your concerns over the movie.

The smaller one is simple. Iron-man is just his name. If you catch it later on the arom is an aloy. I do agree with you though. The bullets that they were firing ripped through the armor of the humvee like it was nothin, yet he was ok. BUT even scrap metal can be pretty strong if you have thick enough pieces, so it's in the air weather or not they could have got through his armor (armor piercing rounds are very specialized, and it's not cost efficient to have them loaded every time).

The hole in the shirt thing is way easier to explain. Tony Stark is a flashy a$$hole. So to see him turn his weakness into a fassion statement is not hard to see. But then once he realized that there was more on the line he got his head out of his ass.

I hope this helps. I've read comics for so long that I didn't even think about the armor thinkness for the first one... I'll have to take a closer look to see if it was or not.

Excellent picture and good eye, maybe even :spidey: sense!!!!

I was under the impression that he made the armor out of Stark Industries materials. E.g. -- yes he was using "scraps", but they were scraps from missle casings, etc.

I could be wrong, but that's what I assumed.

see...i thought about that...but then i was thinking if that was the case, then wouldn't he not be able to weld the metal all old school??

but if it's some sort of special stark industries stuff, that makes more sense....

Yeah -- but I think you can weld anything (even adamantium?) if you get it hot enough. They had to get the metal on Wolvie's bones somehow!

Awesome pic, I never knew one could do such work with a mechanical pencil!

Also, I'm glad someone else noted the odd fact that Tony hat circular holes in his shirt. I mean seriously, what kind a nut does that?

and because i saw the movie twice, i made note and it seems it's the only first half of the movie that they cut the holes....the second half, he just pulls a shirt over and it shines through...

Don't think Bullets can go through Iron, I remember an Old Clint Eastwood flick where he used a piece of an iron plate on his chest as a bullet proof Chest Plate. Old Westerns ;)

Nice piece here too. I had to sketch one out as well ;)

Iron is tough. But it has to be pretty thick to protect from modern military ammo. I think an inch would do it if they're not using heavy machineguns.
I haven't seen the movie, so I don't know what they're shooting with.

Excellent drawing by the way :thumbsup:

Phillip... or Bob (nothing to do with my name.. i got this from a book, Bob's just a cool name!)
Richard would be a good one to name a pencil.
you have great skill to be able to draw like that with a mechanical pencil!
