Batman/Deathblow

[Ryan]

I've always wanted to do a Deathblow title and now that DC and Wildstorm are together, it inspired me to do this pin-up.

Hopefully, I'd like to add some more characters to this piece as a triptych, so I'm open to any suggestions too.

Maybe throw in Nightwing, Grifter, Robin and another WS team 7 character.

That might look pretty cool.

Looks great the way it is though.

It'd be interesting to stick with the Bat-family and Team 7, I think. Grifter and Nightwing, maybe?

Nightwing/Backlash
Grifter/Green Arrow
Martian Manhunter/Lynch
Wonder Woman/Zealot
Superman/Majestic
Gen13/Teen Titans ;)

Seeing as they're in a cemetary (add to that my recently re-reading of Sandman) I can't get Death out of my mind. Though I guess she's a little bit too happy for these two gloomy guys.

But I have to agree with inkblotz and antonio, the piece looks great as is.

i'm going to have to go along with the suggestions of Nightwing and Backlash. Sweet pic tho!

very AWESOME artwork. You rock!

meek? said...

Yo, that's nice!

Triptych suggestions?

If you're goin' the iconic route::
Superman/Apollo or Mr. Majestic
Wonder Woman/Zealot

If you're goin' for the dark yet recognizable route::
Nightwing/Midnighter or Mitchell Hundred(!) as the Great Machine :D
Catwoman/Voodoo

Peace...

Hey Ryan,

You've just came back to Wildstorm & in a week u won the Iron Chief Battle & post that awesome piece !! 'Nuff Said!!

So, welcome back to WS !!

Even the pic is cool like that, the evidence is to add some Bat-Family members or Supes & others WS characters like Wildcats or Team 7 members.
Or maybe a Marvel hero to complete that, Wolverine for example.

I like it just the way it is !!! if you add something to it make ita villain in a very regretable situation .. beeing with Bats and deathblow couldn't be otherwise !!

Jon D said...

Wow great piece. I think it looks amazing as it is. are you sure adding another character wont overcrowd it?? But if you gonna add sum1 I think it should be Nightwing.

monsanto said...

Very Nice indeed! There's a touch of Whilce Portacio here and very wonderful set up.

Wow!

Cray said...

Ryan, how About Deathblow's other half....Cybernary and Catwoman

Tyler Wilken said...

AWESOME picture man. I agree with most, a Nightwing can't really hurt.

patman said...

AWESOME!

Deathblow is off balance. He seems like he is sitting on an invisible chair. His upper torso is too vertically straight for that pose. It's a good rendered drawing though.

NIGHTWING and GRIFTER please.
Seems obviously our two favourites.
Nice art by the way.

CLmode said...

Also why people call you MrJim.
I thought your name was Ryan ;)

And finally Message for the YUKBAEKSA guy:
Deathblow is not off balance. I think MrBenji wanted to render him in a kind of commando-walk-mode. Walking almost on his knees.
