Batman Under Gargoyle

2K Favourites
For the soon to be legendary "Batman on Gargoyle" collection of Aric Shapiro. He's got an unbelievable collection spanning nearly every comic artist you can think of. For mine, I decided to change it up a bit and go under the gargoyle. I love Batman, so this was a pleasure. I still haven't decided on how I want my Batman to look, but one of the great thing about Bats is that his basic design is so flexible that you can take it in almost any direction and it'll still work. I'd like to push the design a bit more in the future, but I was really trying to be iconic on this one.

Wow, stunning as usual.  I've been following your work for years so I really should know this but, are you working digital in PS or Painter or traditional with gouache, watercolor, colored pencil, etc?  If it's digital you had me fooled.

Thanks. All traditional these days. Markers and watercolor here.

This is fantastic! I always marvel at your ability to transition your tones so smoothly! Also, the anatomy on this is really great, especially that right leg.

Never thought about mixing water color and markers, but wow do you nail that technique!  Love this, especially the little details of the bats flying from the moon.

God, I love your brushwork. And the way you designed this piece is so good. Love some of the curves you have in here.
