This was a painting done to pitch a proposed series based on No Man's Land. The painter's name escapes me, but I'll post their credit when I do some research. Anyway,  it was deemed too dark by the suits. Knowing what I know now about CGI production, it would've been a nightmare to produce. Bullet dodged, but the painting is nifty! Pencils rough by Coran Stone.

I without a doubt would have watched this.

This is gorgeous! Looks like it would have made a better graphic novel or video game than a cartoon... But I would love to see any kind of extended batfam dark storyline in any media. Did you ever recall the painters name?

It is kind of a grim arc to be a series...although I would have watched it!

It could've just been a cartoon series.

Not everything has to be CGI.

Cartoons can be CGI - cartoons doesn't equal hand-drawn stuff specifically. But I get your point, and I agree.

This woulda been SOOOOOO cool!!!!!!! One thing that would have worked perfectly in a devestated Gotham, lack of pedestrians on streets would be easily explained!

Amazing work. I wonder if this pitch could work for a DTV?

Maybe for 2d, CG is too pricey...

Cool. I have no problem with it in 2d, not that my opinion matters. ha ha. Would love an extended Bat Family story in the near future.
