I wanted to create a mock cover which was reminiscent of the "Detective Comics" covers of the 1940s and made the viewer want to pick it up and read it.
I did two version and the both had the same problem - it was more about the Joker/Red Hood as hero than The Batman as villain.
Ink on paper, scanned in and coloured with GIMPShop. Poorly.
p.s. I should have added that a large part of my inspiration came from "Batman, the Brave and the Bold: Deep Cover For Batman" - a nicely done episode.
