PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE AT ETSY

EDIT (July 2012): In response to multiple reports that my poster was being sold on eBay and at comic conventions and such without my consent - and SCREW YOU, whoever's been doing that - and now that the movie's out and has kicked fanboy asses left and right, I've put together this upgraded version. A common criticism of the original version was that the bat logo looked more like lightning than broken glass, so the additional effects ought to clear that up.

ORIGINAL NOTES (January 2011): I had an image in mind of the bat symbol assembled from shards of broken glass - possibly a prophetic vision of how Chris Nolan will open The Dark Knight Rises...but likely not. [EDIT: Turns out it was. Am I good or what!?] In any case, I built on that thought to make this image, of Batman viewed through a hole in a smashed window, looking out into a brighter day against the cold gray of Gotham (the first two films were color-coded sepia and blue, so maybe the third will be in gray tones to symbolize the "shades of gray" that represent the justice system...but I'm getting ahead of things again). [EDIT: Right again!]

The broken glass effect was made by scanning pieces of plastic wrap, then using select portions of those scans. Tiring stuff.

Amazing poster. I think you did a great job with the glass. Loved the movie and love your poster!

Still looks like lightning to me, but I prefer that idea anyway, to be honest. :)

shame it got stolen. It is a great work, though, definitely worth to be stolen :D Just saw the movie yesterday, that was kickass too.

You really do have a talent for making movies posters. I think you should go professional.

I would definitely love this on my wall, if it was proper movie poster size. Though that's true of most of your work. Having said that, I'll only buy the official stuff from you.

^ Yet, it totally was.

Awesome pic, captured quite a bit here. I just wonder how he ended up that high...

Wizardry at play here, I suspect.

I'm glad to see you used the same font as the posters from the first two films as to tie it the trilogy all together. (The Franklin Gothic that they used for the real "The Dark Knight Rises" posters is a bit jarring.) What font did you use for the title name?

Univers LTD Std 75 Black.

Thanks for the information.

Some very misinformed folks actually thought it was "Arial Black" if you can believe it.

This was....without a doubt, the most fulfilling finale to a trilogy since The Lord of the Rings.
