Bat-er Up!

Another recent commission to share with you all. I really like this piece (of course, I really like all my pieces--I'm that in love with myself) and I like it for a few reasons. First, I like the big black shape that is Batman's cape here--I think it worked pretty well as a graphic. This was the first thing I saw in my head before sketching out the piece. Second, I like the dramatic spotlight lighting on Two-Face. This, no surprise, was the second thing that popped into my head before taking pencil to paper. And lastly, I had a lot of fun inking the entire background in wash. This did not pop into my head until I was almost ready to ink the drawing. I thought it would give the piece a great depth of field and I think it turned out pretty good. As always I really like doing these commissions--they are always a lot of fun. I wish time permitted me to do more.

the composition is fantastic, and i agree, the depth created by the lighter tones of the buildings is phenomenal! also, i really like the spotlight effect behind two-face, that worked out well!

can't wait to see more!
