What of Batman indeed. Well, I'm still under orders to keep silent about most features regarding my prestigious Batman project, suffice to say that as you can see from the middle panel above I've started getting my head around jumping style ships and working solely in pencil again. Yes folks, it's that time I hinted at months ago, time for a book just in pencil.
When I've worked in pencil before, without adding ink, I've gone some way to make it look inked ish. The Batman and Robin origin story I did some years back (recently republished in "Robin:The Teen Wonder") was my first attempt at telling a story using only pencil, but in this case the pages were scanned in high contrast and then coloured by Digital Chameleon. This Batbook demands a slightly different approach. More on that later as I start to experiment over the coming weeks. I'll also be starting work on designing the main characters, obviously this includes The Batman himself. I'll be posting what I can as I do it, again with DC say so.
The images above are more peeks at my present Dredd, now only days away from completion. I'm going to miss drawing all the BigMeg madness!
The page below is from the Robin origin story, and is my scan of the original page.
