TRDL 2016 Series, No. 10 – Batman [Batman V Superman]

This one was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being Batman, from Batman V Superman. I thought Affleck’s Batman, along with Gadot’s Wonder Woman, were the standouts in the film, both in casting and in costume execution. The film version of his normal suit is very nondescript, somewhere between Dark Knight Returns and Year One, which is precisely what I like best for this character. I made this illustration a bit stockier than I usually do for Wayne, based on Affleck’s build, even though he was physically taller… with the way the cape hung, he tended to have a denser look. I didn’t go for microtexturing the uniform or all the forced expression of stretch lines and crimps in the overmaterial in the armor as they did in the film production version, because I felt that it read better without it. My initial test with the crimping made it look ill fitting, so the language on paper just needed to be a bit different. Fun! Note I made the eyes white. Had that been the case in the film he would have looked 33x more SRSBSNS.
