Illustration of the Day – Iron Man

Today’s illustration features Iron Man protecting a child from an unseen threat. Two cars, one overturned, are damaged in the street behind Iron Man. 

Drawn with an Apple Pencil and an iPad Pro using Savage Interactive’s Procreate. I found a nice tip in Procreate’s settings where you can configure different tools to use with your fingers and the Apple Pencil.

Personally, I am fine tapping the erase tool manually so I have set my finger to do gestures only. This way, only the Apple Pencil will draw within Procreate. 

Here is the video showing each step of the drawing’s creation:
