Batman Sample Pages

Quick post showing three Batman sample pages I did for my portfolio while at school. Still tightening up and fixing things here and there, so I'll probably post up some updates. The pages were from an R.I.P. script by Grant Morrison. Very cool story (though I know there's haters out there - please, don't come in here and shit on my parade) so it was really fun reading through one of the scripts, with all the additional info Grant puts in. Anyway, the pages...

Bola #1 Cover Process

Here's a gimmick comic book cover I made for one of my assignments at the Kubert School. I was pretty happy with the end result. The idea for the cover was simple: Have the duo of Bola and Kid Sling prepare to bust into the doors of nightclub Club Chevon to take down the Great He-Goat. And I wanted the doors on the cover to open up, and have He-Goat frantically running out.

First, the sketches:

Here's the inks for both images:

Next I colored them both:

Then I spent a headache inducing amount of time cutting and pasting each thing in photoshop to create the pieces as I had to print them in order to have the doors open, and have the He-Goat underneath. Eventually it all worked out to be like this:

Overall, a fun project!
