NO REALLY IT'S HER, GUYS.

So, I've gone back and tagged all my old posts so you can find whatever old whatsit you might want to look for. Anyway, I've been on a real sketchbook bender with these Batman villains. Refining and tweaking them and stuff. I'd really like to hear what your favorites are if you've got any, and which ones you don't like so much. I think I might put together a sketchbook of all the stuff once I get them to a place I'm satisfied with. So go ahead and hit the "Batman villains" tag to see all the old ones and let me know whats up. Thanks!

Nice take, Gnat!

This is a beauty.

As far as the old ones go, I love the Scarface, Clayface, and Riddler. I mean, they're all great of course, but those two stuck with me.

I think you should have another go at Mr. Freeze.

Thanks guys. Yeah, I've never been satisfied with Freeze. Months ago I had an epiphany in regards to his design but didn't draw it down. Now I can't remember it and I curse the heavens.

My girl and I are going to have a go at inking and coloring this Poison Ivy as she is in love with it. Is this cool with you?

Nate Bellegarde said...

1) Hell
2) yes
3) all of the above

I really dig these... but 'cept for Ivy, I think they just look sharp/dapper rather than "period". That said; the most recent Ivy is spot-on.

Also that might be the coolest picture of 2-face ever.

Nate that is a gorgeous Poison Ivy and all I am saying is what the fuck.
You know I love that two face in the car window with my WHOLE SOUL, and the riddler lickin the envelope is balls the wall awesome. OH shit and Killer Krok is just a fantastic drawing all over.

Yeah I think you hit the mark pretty much for all, cept' Ivy IMHO. Though, I think this new sketch is on it. I think your Joker is just pure gold and I'd love to see some sequentials with him in it.

Your Two-Face (the one where he's looking at himself in the window) is fantastic. Jess Finkenstein put it on her site, and that's how I found you; now it's my wallpaper.

I agree with Mr. Etsy: it may be the most badass picture of Two-Face ever. The best ones always remind us that he was Harvey Dent... once.

The Poison Ivy piece makes my pants itchy...is that normal???

Of the "Batman Villains" sketches, the Harley Quinn one is the only piece that doesn't really work for me - it just seems less refined and less in keeping with the character's personality than the others. So I guess if you're not gonna do new ones, I'd be interested to see another take on Harley.

Great sketch. I never went in for the unrealistic costumes shtick and envisioned Ivy as some deranged environmentalist taking things a bit TOO far. This captures that very well. I hope you send it to Christopher Nolan so she'll appear in the next Batman movie.
