BATMAN by Nathan Fairbairn

Just a little marker sketch with some color slapped on in PS. One of those rare times I just start drawing with no clue where I'm going. I did this earlier in the week, thinking I'd find the time to do something more ... well, more good, honestly, for Bat week. But no. Now the week is over, so this is what you get.


I couldn't help myself. While I had PS open, I had to throw some color at Mr. Hawthorne's super Bat cover!

Well, FIRST, your sketch is great! I love drawing in marker myself, so appreciate the use of them. Tons of fun.

But, DAMN, the colors are awesome! Kinda needed that to seal the deal, as I wasn't totally sold on the art I did this week! Awesome, dude! Great work all around!

Great Batman sketch, he looks like he is positively going to kick your a$$ :D
And AWESOME colors on Mike's Batman: it looks like a real cover to me now :)

Thanks, Mike! I'm glad you dig it! It was just crying out for color to me, so I had to have a go. Easy and fun to do -- I wish all my color jobs were like this! Thanks again!

Thanks, Francesco! I always appreciate your feedback! :)

Fantastic colours, Nathan!

Thanks, Ron, I ... Holy Cats, Batman! A yank who spells 'colour' properly! I'd just about given up all hope! ;)

Love the sepia tones on your marker sketch! It's a nice change of pace to see Batman in warm colors.
