Alright,this pic has been in the works for months now. It was a time consuming and protracted process,especially because I was having a hard time painting the SWAT members and due to the fact that I have been so busy lately. I would work on this piece every now and then whenever I had some free time and yesterday I was finally able to finish it. I was obviously inspired by those scenes in The Dark Knight where Batman finds himself confronted with various SWAT units. :-)

- Background based on [link]
- Photo references used to paint the SWAT members and Batman.

I hope you like it! Thanks for looking :)

This does remind me of a scene from Year One where Batman was cornered by Gotham SWAT
PolishTank48's avatar
Yeah, I think they also used that scene from Year One in Batman Begins where he escapes from Arkham to save Rachel. :)

You are very welcome. Yesterday they announced Batman 3 will be called The Dark Knight Rises. No word on a villian so far. They nixed Joker and Riddler so those two won't be in it.
PolishTank48's avatar
Yeah,I was surprised to learn that the Riddler won't be a villain in The Dark Knight Rises. By the way,how do you like the title? :)
darcat1530's avatar
I don't like it at all. This one is the last of three they say, hope it isn't the worst of three too.
PolishTank48's avatar
I'm in two minds about the title. I hope the movie won't disappoint!

Me too. It is bad enough that this is the last one!

Awesome job with this one, man! You're such an excellent painter. Great job with the lighting and everything. These guys are in a dark room, with their flashlights being the primary/only light source, and you can definitely tell. The detail in the cop on the left side is great, especially all the creases in his arms and pants. I also really like the strong highlight on the helmet of the cop in the foreground--there's a great sense of realism there. It's a very strong piece, my friend! Keep up the great work!

Thanks,man! Glad you like this one :dance: I definitely wanted to convey a strong sense of realism here,so it's great to hear that this aspect actually caught your eye :) Thanks again for the kind words! Much appreciated :)

Well, you definitely nailed the realism, so I'd say you succeeded in your intentions. Well done. :)
