Daily Deviation

Given 2012-06-09
I am the Night by *Souzay
The suggester says: "A beautiful painting by a talented painter. It shows the struggle of Batman, the quiet deliberation in the contrast between the chaotic strokes in the sky and the more subdued, fizzling strokes that make up the bat himself. This piece captures the essence of the Batman and his constant struggle with the shadows of night." ( Suggested by 0hgravity and Featured by alexandrasalas )

Amazing work. In a few words.
What're Batmans' best colours? Sure, dark colours.
So, as you can see, first and main thing's colour. Great variety of white, black and all the shades of blue. The mix of the charge colours make this looks brilliantly. All of them are going perfect.
Technique of strokes is very nice chose. Strokes're giving a picture mystery of the Batmans' nature - he's the night, and we can see that on this picture. It seems like Batman's vanishing in the darkness, blending with deep nighty heaven.
This picture reminds me Batman from 'Arkham Asylum: Seriuos House on the Serious Earth' written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by Dave McKean. There was dark oppressive atmosphere, and you know - your pic has it too. Not so dark oppressive that was in graphic novel, but dark that needed to show the depth of this art.
About originality. Many of artists like to draw Batman in this style. I mean impressionism. That art movement's surprising always, and this style's best for Batsy. Why? 'Cause this style focuses on superficiality, staff turnover moments, mood, light and angle of view, and that things're need to drew a good Batman pic.
Your work's only one in its' nature. Everything's great.
This is splendid art without any bad things and mistakes.
What do you think?
