Thanos Marvel Infinity Wars

After watching this absolutely outstanding movie with my son, I really had to try and draw Thanos, what a character and Marvel Studios did an absolutely amazing job on this movie as did all the other studios and people who helped to make the movie such a huge success. 

This was one of the first drawings that I used almost every art supply I had at my disposal. Normally when I am dong a drawing, I am doing it with a particular company in mind to coincide with a review I may have already done or be in the process of doing and so I use just that companies products. On this occasion I wanted the freedom of using everything I had and see if the results were any better. 

In total, I used my Copic Markers, Stylefile Markers and Spectrum Noir Markers, I also used Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils, Caran D'Ache Pablo and Luminance pencils. I also used some Posca Pens and also some of the Titanium White Touch Up from Brush and Pencil. The paper I used was as always, my favourite paper so far, Strathmore, but not my usual 500 Series, I have ran out of this and so used the 400 Series Bristol Smooth. 

I have added a copy of the original reference image and so you can see the huge mistake I made toward the end of the drawing, lesson learnt I think. For the most part, almost all of my drawings never have a background, I am terrible at doing backgrounds. On this image I thought I would give it a go and it was as usual when it comes to backgrounds with me, a huge mistake. 

luckily for me I took plenty of images of the drawing before I messed it up and so I was happy enough. Never the less I have added the image with and without the background and you can be the judge. Funnily enough the jury is out in our house. My Son and Eldest daughter love the background, however, my wife and youngest daughter don't like it, they think it makes the image look too busy, but they both think in relation to the actual reference image it is good.
