Dark Doodles

Trying to put together a proper movie poster pinup thing for Dark Knight rises, which is great fun - a chance to draw Bane, Bruce, and Gary Oldman again.  nice.  But, still working stuff out, so i thought i'd just stick some of my sketches up whilst i work through compositions and stuff.  Gonna go stare at my new Drew Struzan Ouevre book for inspiration - awesome book, possibly my best xmas pressie! cheers bro'!  Then, some more sketching whilst re-watching season1 of walking dead, waiting for season 2 to start up again.  sweet.

In a half shell, they're the heroes 4
In this day and age who could ask for more
The crime wave is high, with muggings mysterious
All police and detectives are serious....

and I'm not even googling the song words.  Yup, I can remember almost all the lines to Turtle Power.  And a lot of the lines to other cheese tastic tracks on the movie album '9.95 by Spunkadelic' anyone?  

Turtles was bloomin' awesome, constantly introducing u to crazy new characters, wierd mutants and fantastic action figures.  It also introduced me to american comics, so I've got a lot to thank the turtles for.  I managed to find the new IDW comic books in scotland over christmas, and so these doodles were what i got up to inbetween festive actives and catchin up with buddies.  Finally got them scanned in, and thought I'd throw a dash of colour, specifically on Slash - he was one of my favourite characters, basically a bad ninja turtle.  They kinda did a screwed up version of him in the second movie, but the action figure ROCKED!

anyways, back with more batman ( yes more ) in a day or so...just the doodles mind, this bat-pin up is takin ages~!

have a good one!

Dark Knight Rises

When Gotham is in have my permission to die!

So I'm just a little bit excited about the new Batman movie.  A teeny tiny bit.  But I realised I haven't drawn all that much batman, so thought I should rectify the situation...I also got to watch the 6 min prologue introducing Bane in the imax recently, which rocked, and got my pencils intching to draw Bats all the more...

one of the coolest moments in the teaser trailer is at the end when u see Batman backing off Bane in some kind of fisticuffs, with guys surrounding them in some industrial looking I was going for that kinda thing.  
I'd like to do something else with both Bane and the Bat but we'll see.....

This was pretty much the last thing I did in 2011 ( although I do have a couple other half finished pics )  so I'm looking forwards to doing my first proper piece of finished 2012 artwork very soon.  New signatures are always exciting! 

Hope you are all suitabley stuffed after xmas...I got into the new IDW Ninja Turtles comics during my holidays, and have been doodling the heroes in a half shell a little, so maybe I'll stick a pizza flavoured pin-up on the blog soon.  Man I loved turtles back in the day.  COWABUNGA!

ps...I just updated the image with a tweaked version, couple of things weren't right.
