Oh Ryumaru I know you're an awesome painter and everything but you had to post that RIGHT NOW above my puny little tshirt design? XD
I think I consider myself a fan of entropy...what happened to it? didnt you have to deliver it like a WEEK after the last post you made? =/ is it eternally going to be WIP now or something?
BTW, I'm following your blog and that left hand painting of a mac on a bed is mind blowing, I felt very very puny when I saw that.
I had posted about this design in the Off Topic thread but i figure here, I can atleast show it before people go to the link and somewhat kinda entice ppl to help me out :p
it's an entry for a thsirt design contest for The Dark Knight Rises, the coolest thing is if it were to make it to the top 3, Nolan himself would judge who of the top 3 should win.
Honestly guys, right now i'm not looking for the top 3, I'm looking to not go down with 4 puny little votes :p so please make an account here and vote for it.http://www.designbyhumans.com/vote/detail/203347
The obligatory tshirt mockup
I wanted to do Bane as a ruler rather than simply a buff guy ; so I emphasized the attitude and the coat described in Lindy Hemming's brief about his wardrobe.
and for the sake of completion here is Bane pre-warner’s revision, which had a my dabble at Calligraphy =)
the idea that I never fully developed, was to have the calligraphy coming out of a mass of people chanting for Bane, which is the closest thing to visualizing what it is like in the trailer, I figure that overwhelming support by people, that Authoritas is the biggest difference between him and Bats who is a complete underdog and never the public overtly cheering for him. But then WB came and said they didnt want ANY text on the image other than a quick quote so that went straight to the trash bin :p
Batman as what his foes see him, "more than just a man" the archetypal shadow that attacks when you least expect it, also i wanted to throw in a little refference to that excellent moment in Begins where Bruce finally confronts his lifelong fear and makes a Tornado of bats
I do want comments BTW, just keep in mind it's already up for voting so no editing will likely be done....I didnt post it here as a WIP because honestly I find it overwhelming enough to try and fit all the ideas in my head into an image lately, so I dont feel like I am really in a position to take crits now...
