Batman Beyond- Concept Design by Jarein Batman Beyond- Concept Design by Jarein
EDIT: I darkened the gray accents to fit in better with the overall design. I made sure the details were maintained despite the lower contrasts.

I wasnt very happy with my first take on the Caped Crusader of the future, so I decided to go back and try again.

The goal for the design was to keep minimal detail but to build to the original design of the canon suit. Contrary to my first design, I neglected to add an extraneous amount of smaller parts, and instead streamlined the look to be a sleek as the original but still be original.

I experimented more with Illustrator, to capture difference qualities of material and texture. I figured out some cool ways to get a dusky rubber look for the grey parts, and a shiny vinyl for the black.

The most difficult part was the mask. Ive seen many fanarts of Batman Beyond fall flat because the mask came out either too detailed, or in most cases too demonic. I researched some interesting concepts of different bat-cowls, and worked in some ideas I got from the cowl used in the Field Test short from the Gotham Knights DVD - alot like flight headgear.

I really like the armored bits and the overall sleekness, but I am wondering why you made him shiny. Mind you I am not an artist so for all I know it could be what makes him feel 3D.

This is indeed a very nice, sleek look for Batman. It suits him very well and is wonderfully streamlined. More Batman suits should be so aerodynamic as this.

i like the darker shade looks more like the design from the series and overall looks better
Jarein Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011
agreed. as they say, you never know until you try. hehe

also i like how the design is more simple but and the new symbol and mouth looks better but the lighter color makes him look less threatening but all together it awsome
Jarein Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2011
yeah it was a bit of a tradeoff with substituting the over-detailing I did the first time, with the altered color/material with this design. I was concerned about the outcome using more literal aspects of the canon design as well- more with the addition of the synonomous "mouth-cowl" but I'm glad you liked how it turned out.

so far, best comment I could have asked for :D thank you
