I don't play video games (other than iphone games and Nintendo stuff, haha), but I've always loved the look of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City (for those of you who don't follow , who does character designs for the games...correct your mistake right now). I've always said "I wish they would just make a movie, so I could watch it without having to play the game". Well, imagine my surprise when I found out that people have actually put the cut scenes together into a movie and posted it on Youtube! Now, I'm totally obsessed with watching these things, and I was inspired to do a little concept painting of a redesigned Bats.
Batman is not only my favorite super-hero if not my favorite thing in general. When I see re-designs of the character I get too judgmental and I don't say good words usually. But I think I like yours, the cowl looks inspired by ancient warrior helmets, the shoulders look cool all pointy like count dracula's and the logo is classic (you can never go wrong using the classic logo) Also no underpants!
I can definitely see that! There was definitely some influence from the Red Robin costume...and, admittedly, a little bit of Skeletor's influence (as a He-man fanatic, I just can't help it). I'm actually working up a look for Tim right now! I was planning on re-designing the entire bat family, but I don't think that's going to happen at this point.
Would love to see you complete the big 7 JLA members, you already have GL, Superman, Flash and Bats. And I can see the Skeletor cape harness, kinda like what he had in the 200x series, big fan of MotU here too ^^
I love the shape of the mask in general, the ears are really nice and the small mouth opening is a good idea I'm surprised isn't done more. Nice work! I also see him using the symbol light to blind enemies, or maybe it has a strobe light feature which makes me think of the scene from Kick Ass
