Letter to Batman

EDIT: 6/11/16

originally started as a study of "Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire by Ilya Repin" but I kept seeing batman villains in it.

You can read more about the history of Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire by Ilya Repin here:    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reply_of…

Gonna try my best and name all the people from left to right:

Manbat, Shiva, Talia, Ra's al ghul, Harleyquinn, Bane, Black Mask, Hugo Strange, Catwoman, Joker, scarecrow, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Riddler, Twoface, Hush (great graphic novel illustrated by Jim Lee, if you haven't read it go buy it. Its so worth it) , Penguin, Killer Croc, Red Hood, Mr Freeze, Clayface, Phantasm (from the animated series movie Mask of the Phantasm), Poison Ivy, and Victor Zsasz

you can see the process here www.artstation.com/artwork/PEb…

YOU CAN BUY A PRINT OF IT HERE FROM MY FRIENDS STORE: blog.artlords.com/product/a-le…

I don’t exactly know what Red Hood is doing among many people he desperately wants dead and one that he likely wants to put their head on a stick.

I think much of the placement of the villains here is spot-on. Of course the Riddler is writing the letter, because he is the one who's most clever with words; and the Penguin, with his educated background, is on hand to correct any mistakes. The Joker, of course, given his heterosexual pseudo-love affair with the Dark Knight, is eager to see what is being written. Killer Croc, with his low IQ, has no interest in this writing stuff, so of course he's not even looking at the others. Ra's and Talia are in the shadows because, well, they represent the League of Shadows.


That said, some of the positions don't make sense to me. Why is Catwoman gazing longingly at the Penguin, for example? I thought she found him repulsive. And Harley appears to be mashing on Catwoman; I know Harley likes girls, but I thought Ivy was the girl for her. Ivy, meanwhile, should be burning with jealousy right now, but she's not even looking at the two of them. And why is Zsasz way off to the side, as if he's ashamed of the scars that he, himself, etched on his body?

Excellent! Really cool especially when comparing it to the original painting.

why is Catwoman sitting so close to black mask? i mean its not like she hates that guy enough to shoot him in the head

I know to much about bathistory.
