The Dark Knight Returns by ChristopherStevens The Dark Knight Returns by ChristopherStevens
My second DKR piece from last year. I think it's a more successful piece than the first, but I can't say why exactly.

Prismacolor and Copic greyscale markers with white watercolor paint on vellum bristol board.

Awesome piece I specially love the composition, this batman reminds me a bit of the knightmare batman from BvS and that definately not a bad thing. Great job!

Holy, epic-ally magnificent! This Sensational Bat Man and Robin are stunning and The Snowy Landscape looks incredible! The design, expression, pose, war tank, gun, waponry, cape,boots, suit, mask, debris, sky, snow storm, dark cloud, movement, fencing, action, perspective, lightning, realisticness, atmosphere, hues, textures, concept, composition, uniqueness, colors, lighting, style, and other details are also wonderful! Amazingly radical work! :iconfantasticplz:
