The Dark Knight


One of the most exciting things about art for me is the use and experimentation of medium and techniques. Often I would put myself into a compositional or technical "problem" to see what I could do to solve them. Hope you guys enjoy the piece and arent' too dissappointed in the dark knight's rendition. Oh, and incidentally, I have a gallery set up at ComicArtFans.com showcasing a lot of the work shown here at the blog, but also up to the minute newer pieces. You can click on my link and it should take you there. Come by and check it out if you guys get the chance! Have a great week guys!

Larry Levine said...

Joseph, Great drawing!!!

I love how The Penguin honors the classic Burgess Meredith characterization and not the "Batman Returns" bile spewing (or whatever that was Danny DeVito was spitting up) take on the character.

Chris Kennett said...

Yeah love the mixture of different incarnations of the Bat. Agree with Larry about the classic Burgess Penguin.

Omar "OX" Rodriguez said...

what medium have you been using all this time?

Keelmy said...

Great composition, great eye for detail. I really like how you handled Catwoman's outfit and the Batmobile.

Thanks for swinging by

Great composition!

Gerald said...

That's just flat out amazing!

Keith Conroy said...

I have to say this is a nice piece if only for the fact that you took all the TV and movie characters and melded them into unique versions of each. Always nice to see new art from you, keep em' coming!

Fantastic illustration, my friend

Gotta agree with the comment below... the joker is downright freaky, but in a good way.

I tried to leave a comment saying I liked your take on the joker as well, but I may have rejected myself!
