Another comic book movies graces my list coming in at #29…
The Dark Knight (2008)
So we have heard it all, Heath Ledger’s performance, the Heat inspired theme, the realistic take Nolan gave. This is all true, and yes overused. This is just plain and simple a great movie. It looks amazing visually, it represents the characters from the comics correctly, it doesn’t have to deal with any origin story. This is a truly amazing sequel. I could obviously nit-pick it, but overall the best Batman film for you time.
Back to it again, another redesign. This week Joe Dax decided to request a redesign of the Batman villain “BANE”.
Well, I decided to go off the beaten path with this redesign. I thought about what Bane was all about. He is a very intellectual, very strong and very greedy. He has a personality that requires him to be best. Also, there is the venom that jacks him up. Well, it’s 2014, pills are in. Bane just stores his pills in his teddy bear Osito that he has had since prison (true story). I did away with the big bulky easy to rip out tubes that jack him up. So yeah, basically it’s like he’s addicted to cocaine. As for his attire, I don’t know if it is because I recently saw The Wolf of Wallstreet, or because I want to see a big man fighting in dress clothes, but I really think someone with these characteristics would dress the best he can. Kind of like the Kingpin. The vest kind of represents his singlet he used to have. I left the mask, and made it more luchador like since he won’t need the mouthpiece. I modeled the torso from Arnold Schwarzenegger to give him a big chest as well. I don’t know if you dig this kind of Bane, but at least check out the sketch that I have of him smashing stuff with his suit ripped to shreds. Ya dig?
Again here is another big collection of custom sketch cards that I have made over the past month or so.
Characters are… Freddy, Leatherface, Frank from Hellraiser, Excorcist Girl, Michael Myers, Pinhead, Dark Knight Returns Batman, Captain America, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michaelangelo
All cards are 3.5 x 2.5″ and hand colored with copic markers. If you want one of your own check out my store to request anything!
Chris Nolan movies made Alfred an awesome character. Usually Alfred is pretty 1 dimensional, and doesn’t have much depth, but his speech to Batman in The Dark Knight about how some men just want to watch the world burn is perfect. Let’s hope his advisory speech to Bruce in DKR is just as amazing.
