Batman Redesign by SebastianvonBuchwald Batman Redesign by SebastianvonBuchwald
Argh! Again I overwrote my PSD file with a low res version! I should kill myself.

But anyway, this is a fairly conservative redesign of Batman. I gave him a bit or armor and, in an effort to give the character more "bat" qualities, I removed the eye slits and, though it may not be noticeable, the cape is sewn into his arms. Just like a bat! I was gonna do the same for the legs but it just turned into a really impractical design.

I worked on this loose and quickly and got it done in a manner of hours. Once again, it's extremely liberating to work this way and not have to obsess about getting the perfect line.

Yeah they're pretty similar but this is very cool! Loved the no eyes idea

Thanks! I guess it's hard to be original with someone like Batman who's been interpreted in so many ways already.

This reminds me of that one picture of Hellboy I saw in my artbook, it might be the colors and the gargoyle ledge that has my mind clicking. As usual, wonderful muscle tones and the extreme wondrous grandeur of the superhero gallery.
