Batman 4 Variant Cover by MichaelChoiArt Batman 4 Variant Cover by MichaelChoiArt
Batman #4 Variant cover. First fully painted piece, in that after I rendered all the shadows etc. I was able to delete the lineart layer and it still looked decent. Then I just popped a yellow filter with slight adjustments over it and it looked pretty cool, so I left it as is.

Comments and Critiques welcome as always.

Thanks!

Thanks Mike for taking the time to talk and join us in NC at Heroes!

I'll keep that in my mind.
Thanks!

This is an awesome piece. The tone and yellow filter is just perfect. it could be a floodlight following him or an explosions. it works really well. Only thing i'd critique would be the angle of the front leg. I'd have moved it to the left(Well if I had your skills i would) and brought it forward more to separate it from the widow ledge.

Thanks for the comments! I really appreciate your input. Honestly, I tried different poses, including the more conservative direction of keeping the left leg on the left side, but unfortunately, it filled the empty void on the left which I wanted to preserve, also I felt like twisting the body added some dynamism. Another thing was, as much as it bothered me to put the front foot in front of the ledge, placing it above, or even lowering the ledge, actually detracted from his forward motion, and in some ways made it look like he was moving UP instead of FORWARDS.

While I hate it when artists (including myself) come up with excuses for mistakes or to "explain away" critiques from others, I really had explored the approach you described and made the decision to go with the one that eventually happened. However, I do appreciate your feedback, and any notes you might have in the future. I'm honest when it comes to wanting to get better, so I take every comment to heart, or at least evaluate them all to hopefully incorporate the good stuff and continue to improve. Hopefully :)
