mammal and arachnid

my concept is based on 'the dark knight rises'. Basically breaking the concept of batman and bane down to their origins and calling them a mammal and an arachnid (spider) respectively. I sense that from bane's face that his face mask makes him look like a spiders mouth with their appendages. Hope you all like the idea. And here are my wip images.

c&c's welcome.

Final Image - Mammal and Arthropode - A Dark Knight Rises fanart Tribute

hi all,

I have taken the basic biological Phylum classification of the Batman and bane characters from the movie, the Dark Knight Rises. Batman represents the mammal, and Bane's face has a eerie resemblance with the deadly Scarab beetles of the middle-east and Egypt. These insects fall under the phylum-Arthropode. The chanting that the army of Bane has in the movie's trailer also has a connection to the middle eastern region.

Hope you like it. C&C's welcome

righty.

You've picked a very difficult angle here and no offence meant but I don't think your grasp of anatomy and lighting is quite up to taking on poses like this with scary foreshortening and awkward under the chin angles.

I think you'd benefit greatly from either finding some photo reference of two people in exactly the pose you're after with the correct lighting or blocking out your characters in poser / daz / other 3d app of your choice and painting over the image

this is not cheating, it's a very commonly used technique among professional illustrators - very few people (like a hundred, in the world) know the human body well enough and have the talent to draw it in poses like this without really solid reference.

This could be a pretty awesome composition if done well. get your blocking and overall lighting sorted , play with poses a bit to see if you can get a more dynamic feel to the characters (they look like they're just standing waving their fists at each other atm.) and then worry about detail and colour
