Batman Year One

It's been a while since I put anything up here and I just finished throwing this together so there you go.

I'm a member of a comic book club my friend put together and it's pretty fun. Like a regular book club we pick a graphic novel or collection every month to read and come together to discuss it at the beginning of the next month. Since it's a comic book club and we're all mostly artists, we added a fanart element to it. When we get together, if we wanted we could bring fanart of the book of the month.

Obviously, June was Batman Year One month. It was a quick read, but visually there was a lot for me to take in as Mazzucchelli is a master at the game and I wanted to soak in as much of his art as I could. One thing about Miller's story I realized is how much the Nolan Brothers are taking from it in creating their world for The Dark Knight movies.

I was experimenting A LOT here. Using real brushes for inking again which is still hard with these shaky hands, but worked for the look I wanted here. And, digital coloring using different techniques this time around. Again, a lot of playing around with layers and filters. Still don't have the hang of it, but again, it works for this piece.

Thanks for looking.

Wow. Thanks. I've barely touched digital colors before and was mostly just playing around.

this is pretty cool. i dig the actual inking, where you can see the diff tones. digital art takes over too much imo, and i like to see u using the traditional style for it. y is catwoman's hand so large tho? its not foreshortened
