Batman Beyond - Concept 3.0 by Jarein Batman Beyond - Concept 3.0 by Jarein
Compared to the version I did about a year ago, this design isnt that much different except for a few (in my mind) improvements.

For the sake of the concept demonstration, I kept the pose more static, rather than have him performing something far too dynamic which would obstruct certain areas.

I did away with the shiny vinyl underlining suit, and replaced it with just a pure black matte finish. It didnt occur to me at the time that a hero that relies on stealth would have a hard time with a highly reflective coating covering half his body.

Next, I modified the torso details to be more simplistic and functional, providing the extra covering over the more vulnerable mid-section, rather than the sides. A couple of seams along the sides of the upper leg harken back to my previous design, but are subtle enough not to make the new midsection look awkward.

The forearms have more detail and show more articulation, and help to show the utility they provide the suit, since it is there where most of the projectiles Batman uses are stored (batarangs).

Finally, the headpiece is now more of a hardened shell/flight-helmet, and ditches the mouth in favor of a more plausible and sensible sealed facial area. To me, it seems alot smarter to do have this to provide more protection and better concealment for Batman's identity.

Thoughts?

Hmmmmm i've seen the other designs and while they are really good they all had things about them that id didn't like and while i do see this one as better than theother two it still has faults. The single peice of the torso design looks a bit constricting and the connection to the belt while looking good might also provide some difficulties in a practical sense and the no mouth seems very odd because of a need to talk and even possibly breathing difficulties and i still have to wonder about the very dark blue color of the over all costume as while i do like it it does not have the same effect as pure black. But all of these things do fall a bit flat in the simple fact that this thing looks simpley amazing and is one of the first real times that a version of any Batman actually looks intimadating and possibley even a bit creepy which has always been a big thing in the bats arsenal on crimanals and the overal design apears very futuristic and seems like it all flows together very nice and i really like the symbol which bears a resemblence to the original from Batman Beyond but is different in short very very good work

Wow! Now thats what I'm talking about, a full on critique! Always love reading these :D

I can definately see how the torso elements seem constrictive, especially how theres very little segmentation. I think the thought I had was the material was a exotic fiber that allowed full flexibility without sacrificing protection. Kinda like a improved version of kevlar. This is all suspension of disbelief though, so it all depends on the person lol.

I am very glad though that you like how the overall design looks. Thanks again for stopping in and leaving me some feedback!

This is awesome. However, I feel like it's more of a AC-Batman Beyond crossover suit, than an actual BB suit.

It just doesn't look slick enough to match Terry.

However, that's just my personal feelings on the context of the suit, the art is superb, great job!

Took me a sec to realize AC was Assassins Creed lol. I dunno why since I do alot of AC crossover stuff. Just a brain fart on my part lol.

But back to what you were saying. I can see how this does exhibit certain Assassin details which seem a harsher compared to the canon suit. I think if anything, the bane of any redesign of a batman beyond suit, is that the original is so simple and genious, theres very little room to simplify it. I think thats why more redesigns ive seen normally build on top of the original rather than build off of it.

See I like this kind of critique. It gives me better insight on the thoughts of others so that I can further edit and improve upon these kinds of concept ideas. I appreciate you taking the time to comment man. Stay cool :D

Yep, I can agree with this.

However, if you have seen the New Batman Beyond, Batman Beyond Unlimited, there's a "new" suit, where it's awesome, more Darknigh-ie.

Anyway, Still adore all of your art!
