Iron Man graphic novel

It's finally done! I'll spread this over a few posts as there are a bunch of pages. I've been taking a part-time Book Illustration class at the Putney School of Art and Design (great teachers btw), and set myself the project of adapting a story to graphic novel format. I chose Ted Hughes' The Iron Man. It's been great practice for drawing scenes from different viewpoints, and learning about visual storytelling.

The whole book would have been too big a task, so I chose the fifth and final chapter, where the Iron Man has a show-down with the Australia-sized (!) space dragon. Drawn in Photoshop. Hope you enjoy it.

Iron Man continued...

...and the conclusion

Hope you liked it!
