Long Live the Bat

Long Live the Bat

This is day two of my self imposed sketch-a-day program. Although way too late, this is a tribute piece to the original Batman who died recently on Final Crisis issue no. 6 fried in the hands of Darksied nonetheless (correct me if I’m wrong, low memory me).  I just want to draw him today so I ended up with this one, pencils over hurried inks as usual. Trying out the Uni Pin that I get to buy today using it together with the Sakura Calligraphic pens. Also, sketching it on a recently purchased sketch pad Berkeley, cheap and good, getting the hang of  it. I don’t know if the paper on the sketch pad was intended to be inked on but I did it anyways.

Getting comfortable with the style that I am currently pursuing akin to that Kieth and Wayshack guy and terribly doing it. Notice all cross-hatchings in chaos mode flying in all directions specially visible on the arms part, lighting effects in disarray and inks hastily done. Well, forgivable because its just a sketch, I guess. I will fine tune this hopefully on future sketcheroos when procrastinating come a-knockin’.

I am just pumped up now. Hope I can graduate into sequentials soon because that’s what I am aiming at but not even tried to do even now. Just doing pin-up sketches for now. Comments highly appreciated. 🙂
