Ever since I saw Tyler Clites creation of a LEGO Iron Giant bust about a year ago, I have wanted to make one for myself. It took some time to assemble to parts, an order to bricklink for the dome pieces, and a trip to the local LEGO resale store, but I finally had everything I thought I would need to build a darker version of Tyler’s bust (early hiding in the woods part of the movie). The head was inspired by Tyler’s build, with a bunch of little tweaks to get it where I wanted it.

The signature edition of Iron Giant came out on BluRay a few days ago, filled with tons of great special features and commentary. The film has also been remastered with some new/enhanced scenes added. I’m also excited about the art book that’s coming out on the 20th. I had to doodle the big lug.
I’ve not been checking out the sketch_dailies topics while we were off on vacation, but I just saw that Iron Giant was one of this weeks. It’s one of my all-time favorite movies and a true masterpiece, so I doodled out this quick silhouette of the big guy.
The other day I ran across Kevin Tong’s amazing Iron Giant poster and the idea for this popped in my head. Took quite a few days to finish it, only being able to do a few minutes here and there.
(don’t look too close, there are some major perspective issues i gave up trying to fix and just inked…)
