Batman by Tradd Batman by Tradd
After discussing our favorite Batman stories, Ales Kot peer pressured me into doing a Batman design myself. I tried to keep to the look of the New 52, but still give it my own spin. Wish I had the time to do a take on either the whole JLA or Batman's rogues gallery, but alas. Batman will suffice!

I think the new 52 suit may have hindered your creative imagination to draw Batman in your own style. That is unless you like the new 52 suit.

Yeah, while it's probably not the way I would have drawn Batman if I were given carte blanche, I like the new 52 suit just fine and I enjoyed drawing my rendition of it!

Thanks! And I agree about the body type. Super mega buff Batman never makes much sense to me. I always thought an athletic build would be more logical. Glad you like how it turned out!

love the facial expression on the left one. This straight line above the eyes, gives him this special look. If you know what i mean. The way his cape fits the upperbody is kind of perfect. :)

You should really be working on Animal Man, that would be sweet! My favorite comic from the whole reboot thing, here's hoping DC realizes how awesome your art is and gives you a call...

Thanks, man! Gah, I would love to do some work on Animal Man. It's my favorite book from the revamp, too. Honestly, I don't really read many DC comics, but Animal Man and Swamp Thing have me hooked right now!

AH, that scene was too awesome! TOO AWESOME. I mean, the whole issue was great. I can't wait to see how the next few issues pan out.

And thanks!

I really dig your take on Batman here! Simple, but edgy. None of that extra frilly nonsense details that a lot of people try to do to stand out with their versions XDDD I really love the build, and his intense expression.
Reply
:icontradd:
Tradd Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012  Professional
Thanks, I'm glad you like it! Yeah, his build and attitude were actually the two things that I really wanted to stand out. I think the whole "angry Batman" thing is a little played out by now, so I figured tall, stoic, and intense was the route for me to go.

Fyuvix Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I really like that stoicism. I think it works well with the character more than the 'angry bat' XDD

By the way, random, but, do you play Gotham City Impostors by chance? XD really comical batman vs jokers game. Then again, I reckon you haven't had much time to eat let alone play games! XD

Tradd Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Professional
Thanks, again!

And I had never actually heard of Gotham City Impostors, but WHOA. I just watched some videos on it and it looks amazing! Love the humor and ridiculousness of it. You're right, though. I've sadly had zero time to play video games as of late. One day I'll get pick up the controller again… one day.
