I had a request from a customer that his son would love to be illustrated as Ironman so this is what I came up with and they were super happy!
I started off illustrating the face of the boy once I figured out which picture I wanted to go off of. Next I posed my Ironman action figure the way I wanted him to pose and started with line work. Once linework was completed I started by fitting the boys head and then finished with the digital painting.
For the whole process I used Photoshop. From time to time I will start my illustrations with Clip Studio Paint.
