This has got to be one of the BEST Batman paintings I've ever seen. Have you read Batman: Nosferatu? It is reminiscent of Ted McKeever's artwork in that. This is fantastic. Keep going, you have a great talent and the DA interwebs is brighter for it.

When I saw this picture I immediately thought of A Serious House on Serious Earth, so the inspiration is obvious.
Still, the originality is obvious as well. :)
This is really intricate, detailed, and beautiful. I love the raw insanity it imbues and chalk really has the perfect texture, the blends are wonderful and I overall adore this picture.

Amazing, brilliant work :D

Whoa. As soon as I saw the thumbnail I was like "HEY THAT REMINDS ME OF ARKHAM ASYLUM!" And lo, you have one of my favorite quotes from it on there. Excellent work, I really like how you rendered this. /thumz up

The color palette is really interesting too. I always think cool colors when I think of Batman, so the warmish oranges and stuff are really ~*~interesting~*~

Great work! 8D
