If any of are familiar with comic books, you will hopefully have heard of a gentleman by the name of Mike Wieringo, one of the all time great comic book artists who tradgically passed away last year. I was a big of 'Ringo and always enjoyed reading his posts on his blog and viewing his beautiful sketches.
One of my favourite things about his blog was his sketches for www.drawingboard.org, in which various creators all took a stab at drawing a certain character however they saw fit. It gave Mike the chance to draw characters he rarely had the chance to and gave him a bit of variation in his work - you could also tell from his posts that he really enjoyed and he produced some cracking pieces.
But this isn't the place for me to express my sadness that the late great 'Ringo is never with us. This is The Drawing Board, here we draw!
I thought the idea of everyone posting thier own drawing of a certain character could lead to some interest posts here at our own forum and now invite you all to contribute towards the idea. This hopefully won't come across as formal as it's all just designed for a bit of fun and to see some cool drawings. I thought we'd start with someone who's always fun to sketch and offera a lot of variation but isn't seen around here too often. With his movie out soon and looking like it might just whoop everyone's ass, ladies and gentleman, I present to you, Iron Man!
Anyone else up for posting thier pics of ol' shellhead in this here thread?

I had planned to make some Lego Iron Men at some point anyway, even before I was aware of the movie, but what a nice excuse to finally get into it.
Here they are:
The "Silver Centurion" armor, the original gray armor, a classic red and gold suit and War Machine.
