Firstly i would just like to thank my watchers who supported me again during a tough and long WIP process (I had to change the background).
I've been wanting to do a series of fanart drawings of my favourite film of all time 'The Dark Knight' . But i only wanted to do it when i felt ready and could do the best 'batman' and 'joker' drawings i possible could. This is my first batman graphite drawing, but i am planning on doing 2 or 3 of both characters.
I tried to replicate every component and material according to the reference pic. And overall it took about 55- 60 hours over 7 days.
I like to give my own take on fanart rather than just copying the reference picture exactly. So i originally had the sky full of bats, with a bat in flying in front of the moon so it looked like the batsign (i will use this in another drawing of batman). But after starting the background yesterday i quickly realised that the background looked way to chaotic and a mess. So i made the decision to leave the bats (the moon and clouds were already done). And instead go for the classic batsign emerging out of gotham city. But because the clouds had been fully shaded the bat light is darker than i wanted it.
Here are some of my other 'fanart' graphite drawings.
The drawing was done on A3 Bristol Board paper using standard and mechanical graphite pencils.
