Batman 2012 Redesign by ProlificPen Batman 2012 Redesign by ProlificPen
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).

ProlificPen is available for commissions year round! Email ydavros@gmail.com or send note here for info.

This is fan art. Reposting welcome but please credit! Link!

nice one!
what do you think about the suit in the new game arkham knight?
its a bit to much in my opinion
i mean...the suit is great, but it doesnt fit into the batman series...
what do you think?

agreed. Plus, as a pc gamer, they seriously screwed up the pc port, which made me skip even buying it. Apparently it will be fixed in a couple months though.

it looks like a blend of Terry McGuinness' standard, Christian Bale's second suit and George Clooney's blue and silver.

It's actually Batman Beyond, if you're talking in terms of aged Bruce Wayne, but other than that, it's a pretty solid redesign. First one to actually give me chills, and if it makes me feel that way, I know I don't want to be the bad guy who happens upon this Batman in the dead of night. Kudos.

Awesomely done; I *love* the redesign, especially the ninja elements. What is he holding on to (at the bottom), though? Some kind of invisibility cloak? I think you could've incorporated that in his cape instead; would've made it more Batman-esque :P
