BREAK by DanLuVisiArt BREAK by DanLuVisiArt
This is a cover I did for Secret Six, depiciting Bane breaking Batman's back.

This time, it's more of a metaphorical reference, as Bane is trying to defeat his demons.

This was meant to be used as an homage to the first time Bane broke Batman's back.

This painting will always be special to me, as it was painted on the day I got a job offer to work on The Dark Knight Rises...while I didn't end up working on it (politics), it was one of the most flattering days of my life.

This is beautifully well done! I love all the detail, from the cracks in stone to Bane's arm hair, and the colors you chose.

This is probably what Bane saw when he broke Batman the first time. He saw Bats in his dreams growing up and was always afraid of it, but when he finally broke Batman's back, it was like his fear was released.

Nice compisition and details. I can see a title reading " BANE" and below "Demons" in the top of the image. Otherwise, I find it a bit disturbingly tha tthe backgroudn goes from dark to light so suddenly. At the same time, the contranst and details in the wings against the light background is pleasant

Bane breaking the Batman--one of the most powerful scenes of my childhood whilst reading comic books. Here it is, back again for DKR. I'M SO HAPPY, and this piece is utterly fantastic!
10 for you, Glen Cocoa. Hell, all the awards!

I can see why they would ask you to work on it, this is simply stunning! I mean, I don't really know what to say other than this is a master piece worthy of being used as an ad poster! Congratulation on the DD and continue to make amazing works such as this.

I love the sort of 'Gothic' style which, in my view, belongs in the world of Batman.
Batman almost looks like stone here, like the Gargoyles and such on Gotham's buildings.

Also, I don't see thÝs happen in 'The Dark Knight Rises'; Tom Hardy picking up Christian Bale in his outfit? I'm sorry, but no way. Not with his size...

I love it! My only nitpick would be that it seems as though he's carrying Batman as opposed to slamming him over his knee.

Actually he is slamming him over his knee~ If you look right under the red spark thingy you can see his knee colliding with B~man's back~ c:

b-bossell Featured By Owner May 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yea I can see the knee. I was referring to the way his hands or better yet the visible hand doesn't appear to be applying the force for the back-breaking move. It looks as though he's just carrying him. If you don't understand try and mime the movement and pay attention to what you do with your hands. Use a pillow if necessary.

Oh, okay I see what you're saying now~ I thought that too for a moment, since his hands are kinda in a weird position on Bat's body~
