I did an illustration that was required to be just black and white ink for editorial use. This was based off of any humorous news article I could find. When I found an article about a Batman wannabe I just knew it this would be the one. If you're curious about this story click here. It put me into a laughing fit.
These are the thumbnails and sketches that I started with. The man invaded a crime scene and distracted the police dogs. With the article is a picture of a man you could use some Batman action for his physique. I imaged him running around, darting ridiculously behind objects, and doing absurd kung-fu moves, of course distracting the dogs. Basically, this was my idea and then I started to figure out the right composition for it.
Here I was practicing different styles of inking together. I haven't done much ink work before, so this was completely new for me. It was a challenge to do something that took place at night and has a figure clothed in black. Defiantly, looked at Batman comics and even a graphic novel about Johnny Cash, which was done all in black ink with the man in black in it, haha.
|Bah-Bam! Here's the final.|
