Arkham City Smackdown by Merrk Arkham City Smackdown by Merrk
Sometimes things turn out just the way you imagined them! And then other times they turn out COMPLETELY different, as is the case with this one.

I'm still happy with it. It's just not really what I set out to do.

I tried a few things different this time around. I usually get things really sorted out in a 'sketch phase', before cleaning it all up and going over with final pencils. This time I sketched things in much more roughly, and figured it out properly as I went in for the kill.

Also hatching. I don't think it's necessary in every image, but some times it looks really freaking cool. I'm working on my hatching skills, and while I didn't quite get it right everywhere on this one, I think I did okay.

Also this is a different approach to Batman than I usually take, but I think it works alright for this 'Arkham City' inspired piece.

Anyway if you're into video games and haven't played Arkham City, you're doing yourself a disservice.

Let me know if you want to ink/color it!

incredible pic, too bad Arkham City didn't have co-op. I would have been awesome. Great job man.

Thanks mate. I wish I could say it was all planned out exactly, but this one sort of came together on the fly so I guess the universe gets some of the credit!
