The Bat and The Devil by jpm1023 The Bat and The Devil by jpm1023
Meh....
I'm not real proud of it. I don't like the way bats came out, nor do I like the city scene. Just a little practice in perspective without losing my mind (hence the gigantic cape covering most of it ha!). Lemme know what you guys think and be honest! You guys are the best and I'd love to hear what you have to say, as a fellow artist as well as a viewer. Thanks guys!

I think batman came out just fine, but daredevil's pose is a bit awkward... if he's arching and twisting his body to make a throw like that, his left leg wouldn't bike so bent out in front of him... The two figures are also getting muddled up on top of each other like that too. DD's leg almost works better as Bat's... Do u do a few thumbnails before you start drawing?

Wally Wood used to say,"When in doubt, black it out," so you've figure that out with Bats' cape all on your own. This is one seriously dynamic drawing -- I feel like I have to duck or DD's billy club will smack me in the eye. Very well composed -- this would be a cover that would get me to buy the book.

This is awesome. The shading on the two brawlers kind of threw me of but then I realized that it was because the city was giving off light, hence the difference. It looks really cool, the pencil makes it look fluid and even more violent than it really is. :thumbsup:

Honestly, I think this is awesome. I think the only "opportunity" is the shadow on Batman's face. It'd totally make sense in the colors, but here, it almost looks like a muscle is obstructing his face, not the shadow. Other than that, everything is amazing. I've never tried to color anything this intense, but I might just try and give it a shot. It's saved in my "stuff to color" folder, anyway. If I finish it, I'll let you know. Keep up the fantastic work.

i definetly dig, and i like the idea of his cape like "blacking out" the sky, even though you used it to minimize having to do a city scene (you know im right there with you, id rather throw my d1ck in a river then draw a city scene let alone a background)

Awesome picture! Great job on the musculature and bold shading on Bats, as well as Daredevil. The Devil's cane looks like its bending like rubber, but everything else looks spot on! nice city work. I like your Batman style, you should draw him more =)

this looks awesome. the only thing i can think of is that batman looks a little musclebound but that could just be a stylistic thing. also they seem really high up so maybe if a building was taller it would seem less like(to me at least) that they are falling out of a flying machine of sorts (unless that is more what your going for) i dont know thought i would try to give my two cents. anyway this is really good work and i look forward to seeing more(also if i was a talented inker i would give it a shot but i am not but maybe i will print out a copy and just ink it while at work for practice if that is okay)

you did a good job with the perspective, and yeah i agree, batman's cape does seem a little overwhelming.
what really caught my eye was the foreshortening of DD's hand and cane.
this is really cool stuff

WHHAAAAAT! Now I know you're on somethin, this's slammin. I know what you mean though, so I'll slap a little critique. Your perspective seems fine, the background and DD flow very very well, but Batman seems to be going the opposite starting from his torso. You nailed your anatomy with a sledgehammer, but I think the lack of black in DD's gloves and boots throw that solidness a bit. It's beastly! Fave!

well, one thing I've noticed (and really liked) is the way he's been drawn by a lot of guys like Joe Quesada. He shades the HELL out of his body, but just simple, expressive lines for his gloves and boots. I am SO glad you dig it. Me and you need to do a DD piece. I would kill to see what you would do with a red character. hhhmmmmmm........

You're not proud of this one?! I love the gesture and contrast on the figures, and the perspective & personality of the cityscape is nasty.

How does it feel to be "the man"?

Dude, your crazy, this is fantastic mega professional work, poster worthy. Just tighten up some of the buildings so they aren't boxes and ink it up! Loving the shadows on bats and the extreme foreshortening on daredevils arm, maybe a bolder line around his hand would help pop it forward? Again, excellent work!

The piece is actually badass man! but in my opinion, i think you should put more higher buildings because they seems to be very high and the buildings are more low than them, also the sea and the sun are very high and it looks weird,you should put it on the level of batman shoulder or lower, well, that's in my opinion, hope my english works

After looking at it for 10 minutes the only thing I can nitpick about is the top of the water tower seems a little tilted/bent. That's it, everything else is amazing.
