BATMAN by Declan Shalvey
























Hello there. In typical boring fashion, I've picked a super-hero for this week(though he is quite pulpy too. I could draw Batman all day.

Fun fact; I drew this last week at a drink-and-draw so the greaywash; Ink and Cider.

Extra fun-fact; Chris samnee has the original, so only he knows how much i had to clean this up on photoshop.

Batman is such fun to draw; with the shadows and cape it makes it really fun to play with design and composition when drawing him. Really looking to seeing the versions all the other Twarts come up with.

Would also like to thank everyone who came up to me at C2E2 this weekenf and had such kind words to say about the Twart blog and my 28 Days Later comic. I appreciate it so much :)

I love the brushwork on this Declan, especially in the face, and I think Batman was a great pick for the week.

I like the idea that the only piece of artwork in Chris Samnee's collection that reeks of alcohol was drawn by an Irish guy. How apt.

I still prefer your work on Area 10, Declan!! ;-P

Always awesome, Dec. Your control over the seemingly out of control ink work always amazes me. Hoping I can return to Twart this week!

Last time I tried a drink and draw, results were not this AWESOME! You can clearly drink and draw all day, Dec :D

Cheers,
