Here is my batman. for a reference I looked at cwhite02's Version of Batman. Which is located here [link] This is a bad scan of it so I decided to put a picture of me holding it so you could see how big it turned out to be. Hope you like.
Occasionally I find myself in a creative slump. I've found the only sure way out of it, is to exercise, get good sleep, and break old artistic habits entirely!! This past year, I've been practicing hard on pixel art. The polar opposite of my past realistic digital painting style. It's been a fun an exciting way to hit the reset button on my creativity! This was created entirely in Adobe Illustrator, with vector art.
I've been wanting to try making a little penguin hoodie for a while now, and when I ended up with lots of scraps of fleece after prepping for Metrocon, I saw that I could make a whole rainbow of them >w< This is what I ended up with I just love the little plush beaks!
The Man of Steel's at a happy point in his life--he's got some good news to share with Batman. But tragic times are just around the corners as one of Batman's deadliest foes is in Metropolis on a surprise visit!
Here is the final Image that I am sending off to the printers. Photoshop actually crashed on me while I was cleaning up dust etc on the image. The whole file got corrupted. I lost about 5 hours of work... So sad. We have all been through it though. Photoshop autosave didn't work wither
The idea for this one just made me giggle, so I had to to do it
Watson was surprisingly the most fun to draw. Martin Freeman is super expressive so it made it easy to achieve his likeness. I was really holding back the urge to give him a mustache, but left it out for continuity reasons..... even though Stitch is in there
I couldn't help but give the Disneyland Haunted Mansion ride stretching portraits a Batman crossover Here's the original stretching portraits from the ride: www.doombuggies.com/images/sec…
Harley Quinn and Killer Croc- This was the last one I did because I was still unsure what I wanted to do with Harley Quinn's outfit. Sure I could have made it easier on myself just to put her in her standard costume, but I'd miss the opportunity to put her in a dress. I'm not that great at fashion, but this was one of the ideas I had for her outfit that I finally settled on. Pretty happy with how it turned out. I thought about giving her the umbrella for a split second, but then it's Harley! So I gave her a croquet mallet. Croc was the obvious choice to replace the crocodile.
Joker and Scarface- The original portrait had his pants down, so who better to pull that off than the Joker! He's doing the drinking water while still having the puppet talk trick, just fyi. I didn't intend to have at least two Batman characters in each portrait, but it kind of happened that way. I've always liked the Scarface character so I jumped at the chance to draw him in this piece.
Poison Ivy and Ra's Al Ghul- For a while now, I've been trying to make my own design for Poison Ivy. Finally was able to draw it in this piece. Wasn't sure if I wanted to give her a normal human skin tone or go with a green one so I just made it really pale. Much like in the rebooted Batman animated series version of Poison Ivy. The weeping willow skirt I gave her would be pretty long and drag on the floor a bit like a peacock tail. For the tombstone, I originally was going to make it be Two Face just because they have a history of quarreling with each other. Then I didn't like the idea of killing Mr. Dent so I decided to just have fun with it and make it Ra's Al Ghul. He's always dying and coming back so no big deal there
Batman family and Clayface- I definitely wanted to have Batman in one of the portraits, but wasn't sure until I started sketching ideas with this one. Ended up drawing most of the bat family I wanted to have a Robin in the middle just so the colors could stand out more, but decided to keep it to the original trio. Clayface in place of the quick sand. Very appropriate I thought.
This was originally an attempt to introduce a few other companions to the lineup, picked from the show....then I decided to make a Matt Smith Doctor Whooves....then a Christopher Eccleston one....then I decided Rory and Mickey really needed representation even though I couldn't match them to a show pony...
Finally wound up with this.
Roseluck, Doctor Whoof (10th), Nurse Tenderheart, Derpy, and Pinkamena are all from the show, and River Song is based on Surprise (Pinkie Pie's original concept, and Surprise's colors from a previous show) because she manages to surprise the Doctor all the time.
(ps: Derpy is Donna because I already did this: [link] )
Thanks to suggestions I received, some changes in house mottoes. The house House gave me some trouble (haters) in other websites. About the Medicine symbol, I use the hermes symbol because of this: [link]
Graças a sugestões que recebi, algumas mudanças nos lemas das casas. A casa House me deu uns problemas pelo símbolo usado não ser o da medicina. Mas muita gente usa o simbolo de Hermes como símbolo da medicina, poxa... E veja: [link]
