Batman and Daredevil: Rejected Project Basement Art
That's right. I rejected my own sketch.
See, I wouldn't normally do that... but the one you see above just didn't feel right. I mean, it's a fine cartoon and all. But to me, it doesn't embody what Project Basement is all about -- the raw energy of a sketch, no matter the quality.
There's not much energy to it. And to take that a step further, I didn't have much energy in me by the time I was drawing it. In fact, it was maybe my sixth or seventh stab at the concept and I was pretty drained.
Then I sucked even more life out of it with the colors. Even now, I'm not that happy with them. The halftone pattern looks to heavy to me, and all the colors are muted in a really ugly way.
That's why I ended up going with this sketch of Christian Bale movie Batman. So click that link and pop over to the AudioShocker to check the sketch and see what I have to say about the character!
