Bats by TheRealClappy Bats by TheRealClappy
Done around the same time as the Superman fan art.

p.s. I like to thank my friend John for scanning and cleaning this and my other drawings.

This is really tight man! Your style works very well, when you think about drawing the cape think of all the little small folds that happen as wind ripples across it-your style would make that look so awesome. To get an idea of what im talking about, check out close up pictures of flags, and things like that, you will see tons of little small variations in the way that the fabric reacts to the wind or other stimuli.

Thanks for your comment =Sigint. I completely understand what you mean. I usually keep my drawings simple but with this one I kind of went the extra mile with Batman's cape without looking at any reference (flags, banners, draperies, etc. Also, this drawing was done four years ago, I think) so I understand that the folds are iffy. xD I'm much more focused on improving my anatomy and experimenting with poses right now that I'm drawing most of my figures without clothing (barbarians, naked women, etc.) but I'll certainly follow your advice when I get to clothing and Batman's cape. xD Thanks a lot for commenting man. I really appreciate it.

i still think it looks fantastic honestly, but it said advanced critique encouraged, so i figured that i would give one. i think this is a very powerful pic, and if this was done four years ago, i cant wait to see what your stuff now looks like.

No, I appreciate the comments/critique a lot so keep them coming. That's the main purpose why I'm here. I don't really have anyone around me that are capable of objectivity when it comes to my drawings. xD I don't think I'm any better now than when I made this one, though. I actually stopped drawing for a while. Between this piece and a month ago, I haven't made a serious effort in finishing a drawing. When I got back to doing it, I had to relearn a lot of stuff. I'll be uploading newer works soon, and I'm looking forward to you commenting on them. xD Thanks a lot.
