Mart Ironworth

Mart Ironworth was a Mandalorian Blacksmith. Like his bretheren, he was a skilled warrior, but was also a master at working Beskar iron. Inspired by Karen Traviss' portayal of Mandalorian society throughout her novels, he is based on a custom figure I made some years back. In the armor, I was going for a look of cast-iron and chrome. This was a pencil & ink sketch with colored pencil. The background and some slight enhancements were don in Photoshop.


Very creative :)

Core to the Quad baby!!!

If your going to complement me, don't tell me my work is neat, cool or awesome. If you really like it, tell me why you like it and what you like about it. Only then I'll take it as a complement.


Now that is super cool. The character concept is great, and you've done such a great job depicting him-- definitely got some skills with the coloured pencils, there.


Thanks! The pencils are a lot more work than Photoshop, but it really felt worthwhile doing it, and I'm very happy with the result. It's been a long time since a did a non-digital colored drawing.


Awesome... The chrome and black contrast so well! I love how he doesn't wear sleeves or gadget-laden vambraces. More than a warrior, the image makes me wonder what sort of house he lives in, what his forge looks like, his family...

A great way of making him more than just another Mando grunt.


Great job. ;)
I like the reflection in the chrome areas of the armor.
Is it the landscape? Really looks like it could be.
