As a result of last week's poll, I chose to redesign the dark knight's costume as my weekly warmup painting. I tried to not be too influenced by any of his myriad existing costumes, and design around his key elements: part ninja, part detective, a symbol from nature that evokes fear and darkness. All the while, I still wanted to keep him very recognizable. This is meant to be an older Bruce Wane, maybe not first episode of "Batman Begins" old, but close. Thus I've given the uniform a more modern look hopefully. Seen here with a homing Bat-a-rang, and the "detective vision" optical overlays which allow the caped crusader to see enemies through walls among other things. (as seen in the Archam Asylum video game).
