Thor by Request 11/03/2012 by khinson Thor by Request 11/03/2012 by khinson
This is Chris Hemsworth as Thor from the Avengers movie. Apparently armor isn't my friend as this has been one of the hardest drawings I've done in a long time. I got so burnt out on trying to draw the armor that I didn't draw for several days. I started this project in the middle of September to give you all an idea of how long I've been working on this. Now I'm ready to draw bunny rabbits or something like that. Lol!

The original is lighter than the scan. The reference is from ebay. Thor and the Avengers belong to their owners and not to me.

Time and materials:
31 1/2 hours
9 x 12 smooth series 300 Bristol board
Kimberly pencils 2H to 6B
2B, HB and 4B mechanical pencils
.3mm mechanical Pentel pencil
kneaded eraser
blending stumps
Kleenex

Another incredible piece! You just get better with each drawing. I really like the looser feel to some of your line work here. You are starting to develop a personal style that really separates you from the other artists on DA that are basically reproducing photographs with graphite. Your work has a real life to it that is really starting to shine. It is sort of like comparing Frank Frazetta's work to Boris Vallejo's. Boris' art was more realistic and technique-wise more painstaking, but it lacked the sheer life and dynamics of Frazetta's work. It was that incredible sense of life and action in Frazetta's work that took him from being an illustrator into the realm of fine artist. I see that quality appearing more and more in your work. Keep it going!

Hey can you check out my artwork? It's not that great, I turned 13 in late February (as if my age should be an excuse for the poor quality!) Haha.
Thanks so much! :painter: :jedi:

This is just gorgeous, stunning... gah, I'm jealous! Might I ask where you buy your mechanical pencils? Do you know of a website or something? I'm having a difficult time finding actual 'drawing' mechanical pencils- the usual that pop are the dinky brands places like Walmart carries, and it's come to my understanding that these are not the same... ? Anyway, still a beautiful drawing! And the armor is incredible!!!! And his FACE!! AH!!

Thank you! The main mechanical pencil I use to do the line drawing is about 18 years old. It is a .5 Pentel that I bought at Wal-Mart. The others I use to shade with are also Wal-Mart pencils by Pentel. I think they're called Icy pencils, but I'm not sure. I also have a .3 mechanical pencil that I purchased at Hobby Lobby. It sometimes doesn't want to work and my husband has to take it apart from time-to-time. It's a Pentel as well.
