In this tutorial you will learn how to work in painterly approach in Photoshop using light and shadow to achieve quick realistic result. It is more of a speed painting style, not a typical comics book style coloring. Speed Painting is an exercise, primarily digital, in which one paints on a time budget, using already developed methods to create a quick composition of concept art. It can be primary a study, a concept art or an under painting before bring it into an actual finished illustration. This tutorial is probably not suitable for beginner drawing or painting, but cater more toward intermediate level. In this video (it is old and have no audio), It will show you visually a simple way to approach digital painting using lines then apply value.  I spend about forty minutes to complete this particular digital painting.  This is one of the quickest ways to paint, I rely mostly on light and shadow to create shape and form for a character.

If you need a tablet, I highly recommend Wacom intuo and cintiq tablet. They are widely used among professional concept artists.
Iron Man, Tony Stark, is a fictional character, a superhero in the Marvel Comics Universe. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee. After the death of his parents when he was 21, Stark inherited Stark Enterprises. After being wounded while in a war zone, he built an armored suit that would help keep him alive. Stark helped to organize the super hero team, The Avengers early in his career as a superhero. Originally, Tony Stark had no powers of his own, and he depended on his armored suit for all of his super abilities, until he injected himself the Extremis virus, gaining new abilities and intellect as well as being able to control his armor mentally.
