Batman Inferno WIP

Started this piece in my hotel room in Cairns, Australia back in November of 2008....that's how long I carry art around with me. This piece, done for fun, has literally travelled the world heh. Anyway, I really should have scanned it earlier as it is about 67% done at this point. The plan is to do a lot of fine line work (see lower left area of the piece) to create a textured inferno to offset the more "gooey" oil-like rocks Batman is perched on. The idea was essentially Batman overlooking hell.

So mostly the fire needs work...a bit more in the rocks and then some whiteout corrections/cleanups and effects.

Just trying something different than the traditional rain/moon/cathedral background.

Poor man's Berni Wrightson. Hell...flatbroke Wrightson lolol

Will post further WIPS every day as I basically warm up, noodling parts of this piece here and there. But I make sure to have my composition, my negative space and my shapes and shadows set before I jump in too deeply in the details.
