The Dark Knight by Rahll The Dark Knight by Rahll
So I did the Joker piece like `adonihs convinced me to, then he's like, "Hey, let's both do Two Face pieces!" Wasn't quite floating my boat, so after a compromise, we both did Batman pieces.

Spent a couple days on this, working on and off. Went through two composition changes before I landed on this one with the help of `adonihs. Background is matte, the rest is painted.

Hope you guys like it.

Pick up any Batman graphic novel and he's usually crashing through window glass or a skylight.

Awesome! Criminals are a cowardly and superstitious lot. This is why Batman will always prevail.

That's really great! It's like Bokeh in reverse or something with the perp in the foreground slightly out of focus and Batman who's crystal clear. Love the effect of that. :)

It's when you use photographic elements in conjunction with the painting. In this instance, the background is a photograph.
