This is fantastic. It's just missing something... He's not wearing his underwear above his tights!

They're not anymore in the New 52 costumes, just like Superman's.

Oh.. I know everyone made fun of the classic super hero tights but now they're gone it just seems to throw off the whole design :-o Well, that's how I feel about it anyway.

The underwear completes the design right?

how do you do line art

I used Photoshop for this one - I switch back and forth between brush tool (drawing by hand), and pen tool (dragging vertices around to create curves and lines). For example: I drew his hands with the brush tool, but created the cape with the pen tool since my hand can't stay that steady and straight. However, you don't necessarily need Photoshop; it's not even the best thing out there for this kind of illustration. GIMP is fine (and free), Paint Tool SAI is awesome (also free, but only on Windows). I personally LOVE Manga Studio right now.

Great picture. But one of the reasons I don't like the new 52 is they have taken away the "underpants" of Batman and Superman. It makes them look like they are wearing those one piece pjs. To improve this Batman I would change his costume colour to all Black, like the movies have, and to reintroduce the old gold oval Batman symbol.

With your "Gotham Crusaders" series I would like to see the many villians that cross Batman's path. To see Joker, Riddler and Penguin done this way would be great. It has always been said that the strengths of the Batman series has been the villians he has faced. These strengths should be should off in the best way, your pictures. Also draw Harley Quinn.

Personally, I'm glad he doesn't have the underpants anymore. To me, it just looked really odd that they had to wear them while fighting crime. Thankfully they're gone but that's just my opinion. You're entitled yours as I am to mine

The one piece pj look which the new 52 style looks like just doesn't look right. That is where Batman would look better in all black, so if there is or isn't any underpants there we would not known.

What I don't like about the new Batman is the lack of a Robin. If the new 52 is a re start to all DC characters, why not make Dick Grayson Robin again. However I prefer that Tim Drake was Robin again. He grew up to fast and stopped being Robin fifteen years after he started being Robin in real world time. Dick Grayson had twice as long as Robin, from 1940 to the 1970's.

With the new 52, I would have kept most of the old comic lines going and start the new 52 storylines as new comics, the end production of the ones that sell less than the other. Let the readers decide which stories will continue. Old readers may come back to make sure the old story continues. If it is new storylines that readers want, then they will buy the new ones.

Ah ok. You know, I was in the process of drawing Batman characters in my own style. My first attempts were ok but I'm restarting them now with better detail.

I agree with you on the underpants and needs to add them

He looks awesome and your style of drawing reminds me alot of Young Justice which is an awesome series btw. If they ever did a new series with the whole Bat family I hope that you will be the character designer.

I agree your line on this are so clean. Really nice job!:woohoo:
MercyInk87 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012
I love that you can see how the suit fits together, plus it finally allows for the armored look that he rte ally needed the whole time. At least now we know it's not just clothe.
