DC Fan Art Club: Weekly Challenge #82 - Gotham! March 12 - 19, 2022

Hi @DCFanArtClub! Let’s continue this week with another live action Batman interpretation from Gotham the TV series. The show ran for 5 seasons from 2014 - 2019 and featured a very young Bruce Wayne and Catwoman along with much older versions of the Penguin and the Riddler.

The show was really more about Gotham City itself (with all of its colorful characters) and
James Gordon. It ended before Bruce became Batman (with the exception of a 10 year flash forward in the final episode) and I found it more memorable for the villain performances. Penguin was unique (but consistently entertaining), the Riddler was spot on and the Joker, while only appearing near the end, was portrayed really well (and creepy).

This week create something inspired by the designs of the show or try your hand at another realistic likeness. If you haven’t ever seen the show, all 5 seasons are streaming on Netflix.

Due Date: March 19, 2022
Discussion, works-in-progress and final submission all in the thread below.

Wow, that is cool (and scary)! How did you do that blood splatter?

Also…The Evil Within?!? Isn’t that game absolutely terrifying? I usually like the scary stuff, but I’ve been putting that one off for years.

Used some pillow stuffing from the craft store i had leftover and then went over that with a toothbrush. Also thanks what i was going for :upside_down_face:

Terrifyingly awesome! It was VERY scary the 1st time through and i still get some jumps even on my 6th run through. Lol. Highly recommend the series and dont forget the DLC.

Spot on! This is great it looks just like the actor in the role but also has your art style/artists hand still show through :ok_hand:

Thank you @MichaelLakeArt and @cici !

I wasn’t sure I pulled off the likeness, but I’m glad the hair, nose and smirk all came together to make the Penguin.

Thank you, you’re very kind. Believe it or not, this was all inks and whiteout. No pencils were harmed making this image. :crazy_face:
I got a new whiteout brush. It is similar to a brush pen and it had some cool effects. I used it on the Batman signal and to a lesser effect on the water for the light reflections.
