What a lazy artist I am. Every time I draw a new character I surround him in smoke-- what creativity. Why do I always do that? Maybe it's because every character looks more dynamic around smoke. It also tells a little story. Did a bomb just go off? Did he just blow up the bad guy? Is the artist too lazy to draw any feet or any background? Bingo.
Anyhow, this was an Iron Man piece I started sometime last year. Shortly after watching the movie on disc.
