The Dark Knight - by DanLuVisiArt The Dark Knight - by DanLuVisiArt
Batman

This piece is special to me.

When I first painted the Joker, I wanted to portray the quintessential villain. For me, I think I did alright in showing that. But that wasn't because of talent, or any of that. it's because of how amazing a character Heath Ledger made him.

When I painted Batman, it was different. As a child I've always been into Batman, ever since I first saw the original Tim Burton adaptation. I had all the toys, the Batcave, the Batmobile and I would just lay on my stomach for hours in the living room playing with them.

I once even believed that my Batman figure (with grappling hook) could help my dad get back inside our locked house. Thats how much I believed in him.

I used to draw him a lot, make up my own comics (Batman vs The Crow, Batman vs Judge Dredd, batman vs Street fighter) and just grew obsessed with him.

Time passed, and I went into other things, but Christopher Nolan really brought back the Dark Knight to who he truly is. And I hope I achieved that for Batman, because I know how easy it is to fuck him up.

Enjoy it =)

may batman live forever, not as he was in the 1960's sitcom, but as he was meant to be.

How you captured that unique shape of Bale's mouth is fantastic. This picture transcends the title of Batman; he looks like a dark knight.

I'm not sure which makes me deaf: the amount of intensity in this masterpiece or the writeup of the artwork. both speak volumes.

I truly am grateful for the privilege of stumbling into this by accident. Christopher Nolan and you will be forever remembered.
