The Batmen


Been on a bit of a Batman kick lately. Here are a couple of drawings I've done of the character.

During my Twitter holiday contest I picked up so many new followers that I wanted to offer something in addition to the Red Crow piece that was up for grabs. So I decided to award three small head sketches as consolation prizes. This Batman is one of the three mini-prizes in the contest.

AND this one is a gift for a friend who is a Batman fan.

I don't think I ever draw Batman the same way twice, mostly because I don't think I've given much thought to what my version of the character would be like. I think in my head it's a combination of Jim Aparo, David Mazzucchelli and Rodin. Haven't figured it out yet.

Anyway, I have a feeling I'll be doing more Batman drawings before the Holiday season is through ;)


PS - I will be holding a similar contest for the folks who follow the blog. Watch for more info on that later today, Thursday Dec. 17Th.

Man, those are tight. I mean really tight. I think it really does have a big Dave Mazz. look going for it. I will toss another Dave in there. Dave Johnson. The Devil Pig himself.

Makes me think we need to see more Batman...or a Man-Bat. Seriously. Man-Bat.
