Batman Returns Poster contest

What a mess.

I know I was going for the scratchy, messy, Burton style, but still.

This is my entry in :icontimburtonfanclub:'s contest in which you had to design a poster for one of Burton's Batman movies.
I chose Batman Returns, drawn in a Burton-esque style. Originally this was going to be all traditional, but there is some digital tinkering here, like I used my original Catwoman sketch, when the first Catwoman on the poster looked sub-human :(

Kinda fun to do, I may do Batman Returns again, it is a cool film :D

Just like in real life...XD
This was for a Burton contest, and I thought the villains suited his style much more than ol' Batman :)

I generaly like Tim's films but in both his Batman movies he took the characters far too far away from the comic books. A sewer dwelling mutant as the Penguin!?

I love how well you drew the characters in his style. It makes for such a nice poster. Also love the coloring and how the background fades from dark to light.

Thank you, this is quite different from my usual style, but I wanted to draw it as if Burton had actually made the poster himself XD
Anyway, thank you for such a considered comment :)

Totally diggin' the Burton sketch take to this movie, there's something so pure about it and it tickles a very soft spot in our hearts :horns:

You are very kind, thank you :D I was trying to capture the almost child-like quality Burton brings to his sketches, I'm glad you like it :)
