This drawing was inspired by Dennis Culver. On his blog, he’s been redesigning DC characters to fit into the whole “Batman, Inc.” thing. They are fantastic designs and ideas (seriously, DC Comics, you need to wake up and do a Wally West as Batman of Keystone series. NOW.). Anyhow, I just wanted to play in the sandbox for a minute, so I came up with E-Bat-icator you see above (Eradicator as Batman of Metropolis, I suppose).
The thing about Dennis Culver, though, is that up until a week ago, I’d never heard of him, and had never seen his work. His design for “Captain Batarang” was picked up by Project: Rooftop, which is where I first stumbled onto his blog. After being amazed by his art and designs, I noticed that he was posting a daily sketch/drawing. I’ve seen tons of other artists do it before, but for some reason, looking at Culver’s site, it really clicked for me, and I decided to do this daily thing as well.
So yeah, go look at his work, he’s great.
