Batman Under Gargoyle by ChristopherStevens Batman Under Gargoyle by ChristopherStevens
For the soon to be legendary "Batman on Gargoyle" collection of Aric Shapiro. He's got an unbelievable collection spanning nearly every comic artist you can think of. For mine, I decided to change it up a bit and go under the gargoyle. I love Batman, so this was a pleasure. I still haven't decided on how I want my Batman to look, but one of the great thing about Bats is that his basic design is so flexible that you can take it in almost any direction and it'll still work. I'd like to push the design a bit more in the future, but I was really trying to be iconic on this one.

Wow, stunning as usual.  I've been following your work for years so I really should know this but, are you working digital in PS or Painter or traditional with gouache, watercolor, colored pencil, etc?  If it's digital you had me fooled.

This is fantastic! I always marvel at your ability to transition your tones so smoothly! Also, the anatomy on this is really great, especially that right leg.

Never thought about mixing water color and markers, but wow do you nail that technique!  Love this, especially the little details of the bats flying from the moon.

This has to be the best Batman illustration to grace the internet. Batman is a bat, why not have him hanging when he is not in action? The standing/crouching poses works well for Wolverine. This is great. Dead on.

You are welcome. This has to be the first Batman illustration that is taking in consideration that he is a bat or emulation of one.

Perfect Illo!!! I am glad you chose to vary the pose, it's classic to have him on/above the gargoyle but it's nice to change :D as usual, I LOVE when yuo use your signature technique (can we consider this as your signature?) I have missed you! I hope you're doing great :)

ahahah I am a little bit sentimental I guess. I have known you with this art and everytime you post something, I try to understand how you  made it. (there is your iron fist vs captain America and your Wonder Woman vs Artemis that still leave me speechless)

hurray!!! I will look forward to seeing your work :))) I'm already excited!

How do you go about shading the muscle creases? Like the placement of them and stuff, especially on like a shiny cat suit.
