DC Fan Art Club: Weekly Challenge #92 - Dark Knights of Steel. May 21 - 28, 2022

Hi @DCFanArtClub! Dark Knights of Steel by Tom Taylor and Yasmine Putri is a 12 issue Elsewords series that reimagines the DC Universe as a medieval world of swords and sorcery. The first issue landed on DCUI last week and the first 6 issues have been released to comics stores already.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Black Lightning, Green Arrow, Black Canary and more have been redesigned and introduced to this world. The whole story is set in motion by not only the year that Superman’s rocket landed on Earth, but also by who all was inside! Tom Taylor described it as " a comic for fantasy fans, highly inspired by Game of Thrones and The Lord of the Rings."

Take a look at these character designs for inspiration or do a deeper dive into some of the supporting characters. Jester Harley seems like she’d be fun to draw!

Due Date: May 28, 2022

Constantine really is one of the characters that didn’t change much. He actually seems a bit nicer here :smiley:

It started with me wondering if they had dragons in this alternate universe. Then wondering how Superman’s heat vision would fare against fire breathing dragons. Ok ok I just really wanted to draw a dragon.

Wow, that is a very awesome dragon!

I like the way you laid out the scene too. Eyes to snout setting up quite the confrontation!

I really like the design of the Bat-helmet and tried a close up examination of it.

I wanted to give it some weight and make it look like it’s really over his head and not just on his face like a mask.
