Spotlight on Batman

Started out as a study then decided to go ahead and finish it up and polish it. Still some rough edges (literally) but I always loved the scratchy ink styles like that of phenomenal artists Klaus Janson or Bill Sienkiewicz.

Hey Jim,

Your work looks awesome as always. You might not remember me but we crossed paths way back in your X-men days just before IMAGE  I knew you & Todd back then. I penciled a bit for DC & MARVEL,....even had Dobson doing covers for me when I filled-in on Team Titans. Since then I went into military service, several tours in the Middle East. 

Now I'm back an I'm trying to get back into penciling again but it's been slow.

Anyways take care

Love the gritty feel to this one. I miss the stuff you did where it was very loose and a lot of sketch lines. I can't remember the character. You went crazy with the wrinkles. He was a hit man or something. Anyways, that style rocked. I would like to see you do another book like that. I remember he wore a bandanna. What was the name of that character, I would like to get those books. It was in the 90's I think.

I think it would tilt because the light is tilted as we'll.

Doesn't matter, does it? I mean, in the 70's comics, the shadow of Bruce Wayne was that of Batman, so...

thanks for all that you do, the art, the hard work, and the conventions. I'm a huge fan and I feel a lot of other comic book artists rip your style off. You've always tried to separate yourself from the rest of the pack, you truly inspire me to make my own artwork true to myself and my style.
