Dark Knight Returns by anthonymarques Dark Knight Returns by anthonymarques
Messing around with a drawing of Batman from The Dark Knight Returns. I wanted him to have that "thick" body mass like Frank Millers version had. Used a pic of Clint Eastwood for inspiration around the mouth. I think I might mess around with the cape on the bottom left. I just feel like something is missing. Hope ya like it.

Dude, again, your pencils are nuts. What are you using, mechanical? What lead weight are you using to fill in your blacks with? I just see this, and think about doing something similar, but my page just becomes a graphite smear every time. Killer job. You'd be the easiest penciler in the world to ink.

Thanks so much. This was an older drawing that I had done. When I drew this I was using a 2H lead in a lead holder or it might have been a regular mechanical pencil 2H. Now I just use an HB lead with a piece of paper that I use to put under my hand so that I don't smear anything.

If you still feel like something's missing I think it might be that his cape/cowl isn't black.

That would fuck with your other black shapes though.

This is great Anthony,
I thought this looked familiar, I remember seeing you working on this.
I like how you put effort in the brick wall behind him.
Some people overlook that.

Thanks alot! I figured it would look silly with some plain bricks behind him. Thank telegraphics for burning detail into my brain. HaHa And thanks for the fav!

This is quite incredible, Anthony. You should ink this. Or, if you feel hesitant, make a blue line copy and ink on that.

thanks so much orion! I was planning on whipping up a blueline to do just that. eventually I have to color it because I need to have this as a print for The Baltimore Comic Con. When are you coming back to NJ?

HAHA! Well, make sure you have it on Deviant, so I can see it, man! You know, I'm only an hour or so away from Baltimore, but I think I'm still recuperating from the San Diego Comic Con. Have fun, though! I believe I'm returning to the Garden State the weekend before school starts, which, incidentally, is my birthday, too!

That sounds pretty epic. I might just have to take a look into that. Or maybe just write my own version? Prob not as good an idea. HaHa
