Heimdall by robdolbs Heimdall by robdolbs
i never expected this would turn out as well as it did, that's for sure....i'm very pleased with the outcome! :boogie:

first person i've EVER done in coloured pencils, and it's also the first black person i've drawn too :aww:
idris elba is super attractive! especially as heimdall :heart:

anyway, hope you like it! :love:

i dedicate this to =pbird12 since she is master of colour on black paper in my book, and she also raves about the pablos enough that i bought some :iconlaughingplz:

used:
9x12 strathmore artagain black paper
caran d'ache pablo pencils
lyra blender
white gel pen

EDIT: i've since blended the left (his right) side of the helmet more so it looks a bit smoother. no photo of it though and i'm too lazy to take one haha

Beautiful illustration. Still puzzled as to why anyone would be upset at a Black superhero.  They already exist in reality, and the ideal of prejudice already goes against what super heroes stand for.  All Super Heroes must pass some badass tests.  Could any of us have withstood what minorities are and were put through?

thank you! yes, i agree. idk how anyone could think that heimdall is not badass lol, and honestly i think the fact that idris elba plays him makes him that much more unique and interesting. 
i think he is very cool in the movies indeed :nod:
