Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Marvel Comics’ Iron Man (head/helmet). A new cartoon drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
You may wish to use an eraser to correct mistakes and remove guide lines. Use colored pencils, crayons, markers, or paints to color your finished drawing.
Within the shape enclosed in the previous step, draw a long, curved line. Then, across the chin, draw a series of connected, short, straight lines.
Step 4: That’s it for the initial sketch of Tony Stark’s Iron Man helmet! You have the basic Iron Man shape, so now go in and tighten your drawing. From this point on, press harder with your pencil in order to get darker lines and a more defined sketch.
Connect the lines using a parallel series of straight lines of various lengths.
Continue to detail the mask. Draw a series of curved lines connecting the straight lines to the back of the head. Draw a curved, loosely “S” shaped line across the side of the mask.
Iron Man was first seen in 1963 in DC Comic’s Tales of Suspense #39. Since that time, he has played a leading or supporting role in numerous comic books, television cartoon series, and films. Among his most notable appearances are Iron Man (2008), The Avengers (2012), and the sequels to these films.
Draw Iron Man’s eyes. On each side of the face, just below the brow, enclose a rectangular shape using two slightly curved lines. Within each shape, draw another, slightly smaller, slanted rectangle.
Draw a curved line extending from one side of the oval, and a series of connected, straight lines of varying lengths on the opposite side.
Intro: Start drawing Tony Stark’s Iron Man helmet with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 3: Now draw two long rectangles under the middle horizontal construction line on either side of the vertical construction line. These will be Iron Man’s eyes. Below the top horizontal construction line, draw a square that comes down about halfway between the top and middle horizontal construction lines.
Draw Iron Man’s chin. Extend a straight line from the bottom of the mask, and from this line a horizontal straight line. Connect it to the side of the mask using a slightly curved line.
Detail the top of the mask. Draw a square in the middle of the head, and extend lines upward from the square on each side. Connect these lines to the sides of the mask using straight lines.
Step 5: Tighten the shape of Iron Man’s eyes and make them slightly rounder. Draw a similar shape that surrounds the eyes to give them dimension. Draw two small lines to the outside corner of each eye to complete them.
Step 1: To draw Iron Man from Marvel Comics, start with a big oval in the middle of the page. Draw the oval so it is a little flat on the top. This will be the basic shape for Iron Man’s head/helmet.
Draw a long, curved line extending from the top of the mask. From this, draw a shorter, straight line. Connect it to the side of the mask using a curved line.
Would you like to draw Iron Man’s mask? Now you can, with the help of this easy, step-by-step drawing tutorial. All you will need is a pencil and a sheet of paper. Notice that each step in this drawing guide contains explanatory text accompanied by illustrations. In each picture, new lines to be drawn are shown in blue, while previously drawn lines fade to black.

Draw the forehead portion of the mask. Begin by enclosing an irregular shape along the near side of the face using a curved line. Then, draw a pair of parallel, curved lines across the face. Connect the ends of these lines to the side of the face using a short, curved line.
Draw a line from the ear-like oval to the top of the head, and draw a curved line along the back side of the jaw.
Add more details to the mask. Draw two curved lines beneath the oval, meeting in a point. Draw two small ovals below the lines on the top of the head.
Draw a pair of curved lines extending from the chin to the sides of the face.
Step 2: Next, draw a vertical line that divides the oval in half. Draw a horizontal line that divides the oval in the middle but curve this line slightly upward. Draw another horizontal line near the top of the oval that curves down slightly. Draw yet another horizontal line near the bottom that curves upward. These will be construction lines that will help you place Iron Man’s features later on.
Color Iron Man’s mask. His mask is typically red and gold in color.
Begin by drawing a large oval to form the basic outline of the mask.
Enclose a trapezoid along the bottom of the chin using three straight lines. Connect the jaw to the mouth using a straight line, and add depth to the forehead with a few slightly curved lines.
Draw a curved line within the large oval, enclosing a smaller oval. Draw a straight line between the eyes, and curved lines across the cheek.
Draw another small oval within the ear-like oval, along with vertical lines. Draw small circles on the side of the face.
Tony Stark is both a billionaire and a genius. Captured and forced to make weapons for his enemies, he developed the Iron Man armored suit in order to escape. Neither born with nor endowed with superpowers, Stark became a super hero nonetheless due to his creative invention.
