DC Icon Batman

Here is yet another Batman drawing...
I was motivated by the last three Marvel Icons
that I did...I HAD to take on the DC Icons.
I was going for a modern look of the original Bob
Kane Bat suit.
Kelsey Shannon (Roboworks) [link] is and has done the coloring on my
work to bring it to a whole other level.
Here is a sample of the color.... [link]

I was actually talking to Christ. Good dude. Makes a mean burger. He said your work is awesome. He'd hang it on his walls but he says he has to be unbiased. Son of God and all.

Wow. One amazing piece. Bob Kane would love it! Hopefully we will see prints of these on sale one day. I would love to buy one and support your work.

i think i know what it is...the highlight of the belt is so intence against the flats of the cape, that it stands out. I think some gery tones like you did on the chest, may have helped the belt (which is indeed farther than the chest), to appear further...

It is brilliantly done.
Don't you feel the belt is a little high and wide, either that, or the body is not long enough? I know you foreshortened, but to me the belt is a tad problematic. It is either too wide, or does not have enough perspective going further from the viewer...Potentially some shade like you did on the left of the belt (the small shaded tip) may have worked well on the right also where the cape would have blocked some light. It will also have created a farther feel for the belt going around the body if you know what i mean...

Amazing. The lighting, handling of contrast and the shadows really make this piece fantastic.

Admiring it all morning.

Put my Batman drawing next to ANY Alex Batman...then come back and we
can discuss the likenesses between

Apples and oranges.
