It was brought to my attention that, with my love of capes, moody lighting and "darker" characters, that i've never drawn a "real" picture of Batman. So... challenge accepted.
Anyway, I know absolutely nothing about this character. I've never even held a Bat-book in my hands. The only knowledge i have of him comes from internet heresay and the movies, specifically the Tim Burton ones. That being said, I've always loved the conflicting design elements of the character, the art deco, minimalistic approach some artists take, vs the heavy gothic approach others do. I tried to combine the two, with mixed results.
A bunch of things i'd like to change, but, meh. I already spent close to 40 hrs on this piece, i'm not spending anymore, LOL. I'm also leaving it inks, but i have a huge file uploaded in case anyone wants to color the monstrosity.
