Batman, Green Lantern, Justice Society of America, Jonah Hex, and all related characters are the property of DC Comics.
Well, I've began work on *10293we2's request, but since that'd take me a while, I decided to upload some doodles I'd done lately in the meantime.
Just a collage of various profiles I'd done over the past few weeks. all DC character and most of them Batman villains.
In numerica order: 1: The Riddler. Main influences were his design from The New Batman Adventures (his face) and his Batman: The Animated Series design (mask and clothes). 2: Poison Ivy. She's mostly based on her The New Batman Adventures with touches from Jim Lee's and Tim Sale's takes on her. 3: Hugo Strange. He's mostly based on his The Batman design, but leaning more towards his comic incarnation (bald with a black beard) 4: Mr. Zsasz. He's more or less based on artwork for the game, Batman: Arkham Asylum 5: Catwoman. She's mostly based on her The Batman design. 6: Another version of the Riddler. In fact, he's the same Riddler as before, but with a different hairdo, inspired by his appearances in the Joker graphic novel, his first few scenes in Batman Forever, and his The Batman design, with a question mark on his hat also inspired by The Batman. A part of me feels like I pretty much draw Alex DeLarge from A Clockwork Orange or Spencer Reid from Criminals Mind in the Riddler's hat and mask with this one. 7: Two-Face from the unscarred side, well a 3/4 view of the unscarred side. His influences were the same as in "Two Scarred Men": The right half owes to his The New Batman Adventures with some touches from the Batman: The Animated Series design and His left half is inspired by Batman: Arkham City, The Dark Knight, and Batman: The Long Halloween/Dark Victory. 8: Jonah Hex, also 3/4 from the unscarred side. Also inspired by the same influences as "Two Scarred Men": his Justice League Unlimited, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and DC Showcase Presents Jonah Hex designs. 9: Scarface. Main influences were from The Batman (mostly his face/head), with touches from his The New Batman Advenutres deisgn (hat and hair). 10: Great White Shark. Just decided to try my hand at him. Hope you guys like it. 11: Arnold Wesker, the Ventriloquist. Mostly on his The Batman design. 12: Cluemaster: Mostly inspired by his Batman: The Brave and the Bold design. (No offense, but did anybody like his The Batman incarnation?) 13: Maxie Zeus. Mostly based on his Batman: The Animated Series design with the bangs inspired by his The Batman design. 14: Sinestro. Based on his design of The Batman. 15: Vandal Savage. He's inspired by on his Justice League design, mostly his appearance during Hereafter, only with his hair longer than it was there. 16: Ra's al Ghul. Main influences were his Batman: The Animated Series/Superman: The Animated Series/Batman Beyond designs with a few elements from his Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Batman: Under the Red Hood design, as well as a few touches from modern comics (I blame recently reading The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul and Hush for that). 17 and 18: Respectively, Fatman and Little Boy from Brian Azzarello's Broken City story from Batman, which I've also been reading lately. Not much to say--just looked at how they were drawn on the covers by Dave Johnson and the story itself by Eduardo Risso and tried to draw them in my style. 19: White Ghost, from The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul. I tried to give him elements of Ra's since he was Ra's son.
Again just a some doodling I did in class to tied you guys over. I have finished drawing pages 6 through 11 and just need to color them in so expect to see some soon.
Fun trivia note some of the these villians like The Mad Hatter, Scarface and the Ventriloquist, Harley Quinn, and Fire-Fly are the first time I've EVER drawn them and for the most part I think I did a good job. But then there are others like Poison Ivy and Bane (kinda) that I haven't drawn since Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin came out in theatres.
Clayface is a mixture of the TAS version with my own style, the animated series version is my favorite because it truly made him into a tragic character.
Mad Hatter, as stated before I’ve never drawn him before, I just decided to add the mustache as a reference to the old Adam West tv show.
FireFly, again I don’t know much about this guy other than he uses a flamethrower and has a jet pack but he has a cool design.
Mr. Freeze, obviously based on the TAS version, which is still the best. I will never understand how anyone thought Arnold Schwarzenegger was a good choice for the role.
Scarface and the Ventriloquist, always seemed like an interesting character but the most I remember him for is that he use to scare the s*@# out of my cousin.
Bane, looking forward to seeing him in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises.
Killer Croc, definitely the Bruce Tim design because I hate all the other designs I’ve ever seen, they make him look too much like Leatherhead from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Scarecrow, great villain but it doesn’t seem like there is a definitive design so I mixed to original version with the New Adventures of Batman and Robin.
Riddler is just my own style although I willingly admit that I liked Jim Carrey in Batman Forever but I do prefer the idea of the Riddler having OCD than the old “I’m so smart I can leave clues and yet they’ll never figure then out."
Ra’s Al Ghul, I was trying to make him look more Liam Neeson here but oh well.
Batman the Tim Burton Michael Keaton version, best version EVER, no discussion needed it’s a fact.
Joker same as before just put Jack Nicholson’s name in there instead.
Penguin I used the TAS design as a jumping off point but I love the version from Batman Returns that actually makes him into a tragic, dark mirror version of Batman.
Two-Face my problem with most Two-faces is that the line that divides the scaring is always too smooth, it doesn’t make any sense. While I did like Jim Carrey as the Riddler I HATED Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face, it’s like one day he came to work and said “I wanna play Joker” and just did a bad copy of Nicholson’s Joker, then we have Aaron Eckhart’s version which visually how I’ve always wanted to see him but character wise is just a few points off from perfection, I thought he was more deserving of praise than Heath Ledger but that’s just me.
Dr. Strange always thought he’d make a great villain in a Nolan film but oh well, maybe one day he’ll be brought to the screen.
Catwoman again in Batman Returns they made her in a dark mirror of Batman and it worked great, plus she’s so freak’in hot. Halle Berry may be more attractive in real life but her costume and movie in general was horrible. Anne Hathaway… NO. she’s a terrible choice, she is at best cute, like your younger cousin NOT sexy at all.
Poision Ivy interesting villian and Uma Thurman looked great in the movie but honestly I think she by far gave the worst performance in the movie and that is saying something.
Harley Quinn great character and design, wouldn’t mind seeing her make it into the films. I hate the new "edgy" designs in the newer comics, they just look awful to me.
Man-Bat use to scare me a little as a kid but still is awesome. Although somehow I doubt we’ll see him in any of Nolan’s films.
I do not own any of these characters, they are owned by DC and Warner Bros.
An illustration i did for a TV program competition, in which it was required to draw a character from the Watchmen universe, i chose to draw the Nite Owl II inspired by the suit from the upcoming movie.
Went to the library a few days ago, found a copy of Watchmen. Lulzed at "journal" being translated into "diary" in danish. Your grimdark deep monologue just doesn't sound that cool when the first sentence says "Rorschach's Diary" in big bold writing. How very gay of you Danishsach. Go back to your ehgg..flower bed... Drew him without the trench, cause the under suit is so fabulous. Purple and everything.
Sorry.. I'll scrap later.
Just trying out ArtRage. It's pretty fun. I like the whole.. Crayon thing. Nice.
