Thang Nguyen is a designer and illustrator from London who loves to draw amazing pictures on his Instagram. He’s tackled the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Mike Tyson, Tyrion Lannister, and the piece we’re featuring today – Iron Man.
I am a big Marvel fan so you know I love to feature anything of the sorts, but the detail Thang puts into this Iron Man tribute piece is stunning. From the light reflecting off Iron Man’s head and chest to the negative space used for the thruster in his hand about to go off. Actually there’s an interesting story behind the negative space according to Thang;
I was also going to colour in his whole hand then add the lighting using my white Prismacolor pencil. But because my white pencil was running low I decided to just use the white of the paper to create the glow in his hand. I think this worked out quite well.Thang Nguyen
