View Full Version : Batman

I started working at the bookstore since artwork fails to pay as much as I had hoped. Anyways, I get good discounts on sketchbooks and art books, like the new DC "How to" books. I started doing this at lunch times to help break in my new sketchbook, it took about 2 hours over all I suppose and this is as finished as it will get unless I decide to color it. It was designed with the colors in mind hence all the black over black, which wouldn't be black if I colored it. The villain is just some random bruiser. Hope you like it, haven't posted in a long while. http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/6589/lunchtimebatmanfinished5cf.jpg

great job on the lighting it really came off great.
you might want to make batman's right shoulder bigger, it seems too small for the size of his head. It looks like you were trying to drop it back like he's standing at an angle, but to really do that right you would have to make it much larger and probably change the shape of that light patch on that shoulder to make it look rounded and large.
the big guys arms also look funny. like he has them stuck forward then has his elbows disjointed back in towards his body. you got that effect because the arms look larger and farther forward than his chest yet you can't see his hands.
Batman's torch hand is also very big. with perspective it would be smaller.
Sorry if it seems like I'm rippin in to your drawing, but I honestly really do like it a lot and if you fixed those few things it would be pretty damn sweet.

No worries man, critiques are why I started posting here. I'm glad you like it, there are a few aspect that are a little wonky but I didn't really plan it out. I know that no good art needs an explaination but I did this in 15-30 minute intervals in the break room at work.
The villain is differnt from the original form, I had first chosen some abstract shapes instead of more defined clothing and such. I thought the shapes might lend a feeling of uneasyness in the viewer but as it turns out they only obscured the forms of the villain.
Anyways, thanks for the input! :D
