BATMAN (and Poison Ivy) by Chris Samnee


I've never made it a secret that I'd kill to work on a Bat title. I absolutely love drawing Batman.
I was lucky enough to handle art chores on a Poison Ivy short story, written by Simon Spurrier, for the Batman 80 Page Giant a while back but I've still got the itch to do more.

Excellent subject suggestion, Declan. :D

Oh, and here are the pencils for the above sketch.

You're getting too good, sir. You must be stopped.

And I'VE GOT TO STOP YOU.

You're a natural, Chris! Hope DC sees that they NEED you on a Bat title!

I'd love to draw a Joker comic. Gap tooth and all ;)

Looks great Chris! Ivy's always been one of my favorite Bat baddies, and the torsion on Batman here is wild.

Lee Cherolis said...

Damn, that is awesome. I love how you conveyed Batman's weight. He feels like a big sack of muscle held up by those vines... so cool!
