Again just a some doodling I did in class to tied you guys over. I have finished drawing pages 6 through 11 and just need to color them in so expect to see some soon.
Fun trivia note some of the these villians like The Mad Hatter, Scarface and the Ventriloquist, Harley Quinn, and Fire-Fly are the first time I've EVER drawn them and for the most part I think I did a good job. But then there are others like Poison Ivy and Bane (kinda) that I haven't drawn since Joel Schumacher’s Batman and Robin came out in theatres.
Clayface is a mixture of the TAS version with my own style, the animated series version is my favorite because it truly made him into a tragic character.
Mad Hatter, as stated before I’ve never drawn him before, I just decided to add the mustache as a reference to the old Adam West tv show.
FireFly, again I don’t know much about this guy other than he uses a flamethrower and has a jet pack but he has a cool design.
Mr. Freeze, obviously based on the TAS version, which is still the best. I will never understand how anyone thought Arnold Schwarzenegger was a good choice for the role.
Scarface and the Ventriloquist, always seemed like an interesting character but the most I remember him for is that he use to scare the s*@# out of my cousin.
Bane, looking forward to seeing him in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises.
Killer Croc, definitely the Bruce Tim design because I hate all the other designs I’ve ever seen, they make him look too much like Leatherhead from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Scarecrow, great villain but it doesn’t seem like there is a definitive design so I mixed to original version with the New Adventures of Batman and Robin.
Riddler is just my own style although I willingly admit that I liked Jim Carrey in Batman Forever but I do prefer the idea of the Riddler having OCD than the old “I’m so smart I can leave clues and yet they’ll never figure then out."
Ra’s Al Ghul, I was trying to make him look more Liam Neeson here but oh well.
Batman the Tim Burton Michael Keaton version, best version EVER, no discussion needed it’s a fact.
Joker same as before just put Jack Nicholson’s name in there instead.
Penguin I used the TAS design as a jumping off point but I love the version from Batman Returns that actually makes him into a tragic, dark mirror version of Batman.
Two-Face my problem with most Two-faces is that the line that divides the scaring is always too smooth, it doesn’t make any sense. While I did like Jim Carrey as the Riddler I HATED Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face, it’s like one day he came to work and said “I wanna play Joker” and just did a bad copy of Nicholson’s Joker, then we have Aaron Eckhart’s version which visually how I’ve always wanted to see him but character wise is just a few points off from perfection, I thought he was more deserving of praise than Heath Ledger but that’s just me.
Dr. Strange always thought he’d make a great villain in a Nolan film but oh well, maybe one day he’ll be brought to the screen.
Catwoman again in Batman Returns they made her in a dark mirror of Batman and it worked great, plus she’s so freak’in hot. Halle Berry may be more attractive in real life but her costume and movie in general was horrible. Anne Hathaway… NO. she’s a terrible choice, she is at best cute, like your younger cousin NOT sexy at all.
Poision Ivy interesting villian and Uma Thurman looked great in the movie but honestly I think she by far gave the worst performance in the movie and that is saying something.
Harley Quinn great character and design, wouldn’t mind seeing her make it into the films. I hate the new "edgy" designs in the newer comics, they just look awful to me.
Man-Bat use to scare me a little as a kid but still is awesome. Although somehow I doubt we’ll see him in any
of Nolan’s films.
I do not own any of these characters, they are owned by DC and Warner Bros.
