Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Marvel Comics' Iron Man (head/helmet). A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start drawing Tony Stark's Iron Man helmet with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don't press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: To draw Iron Man from Marvel Comics, start with a big oval in the middle of the page. Draw the oval so it is a little flat on the top. This will be the basic shape for Iron Man's head/helmet.
Step 2: Next, draw a vertical line that divides the oval in half. Draw a horizontal line that divides the oval in the middle but curve this line slightly upward. Draw another horizontal line near the top of the oval that curves down slightly. Draw yet another horizontal line near the bottom that curves upward. These will be construction lines that will help you place Iron Man's features later on.
Step 3: Now draw two long rectangles under the middle horizontal construction line on either side of the vertical construction line. These will be Iron Man's eyes. Below the top horizontal construction line, draw a square that comes down about halfway between the top and middle horizontal construction lines.
Step 4: That's it for the initial sketch of Tony Stark's Iron Man helmet! You have the basic Iron Man shape, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Step 5: Tighten the shape of Iron Man's eyes and make them slightly rounder. Draw a similar shape that surrounds the eyes to give them dimension. Draw two small lines to the outside corner of each eye to complete them.
