Why would they turn you down? This is amazing on so many levels! Look at Scarecrow, i can see the threat and foreshadowing as clear as day. some other things with scarecrow and batman have failed to do tis. this piece is powerful. great job!

well in my opinion- i feel the scare crow and creature behind him are wicked solid and i like how they work inked/ however the batman looks a little off to me- like i would have to see a little more of him with your style before i know if i like it or not/ other then that- pretty damn alright!/

for some reason the slug in the background reminds me of Naruto and Lady Tsunade=]

Hey, great picture! You're style rules... It's like Mingola combined with Adams and Jim Lee!

I coloured this picture for my own pleasure (I had spare time)... And I know I suck, but if you would like my coloured version of this, I could try to send it to you somehow.

Batman kicks ass!

They turned down THIS?! This looks better than 90% of the crap I see at comic stores. Geez man.

This is an amazing piece of art by itself. I just really can't find anything wrong with it. You rock.

thanks- they said they already had a scarecrow story going on and with the movie having him as a bad guy- just was bad timing- but evryone digs the piece.

You mean the Scaremurderer arc and Nolan's drug peddling Scaregoon?

They should have run your piece.

This is freakin' awesome! You've captured the Scarecrow perfectly! The lighting effects/balance of black&white alternating from the figures to background are amazing!

All right, this is a really awesome piece. But i think I may have some hints for next time. The overall compostition is great but the one thing that is out of place in a few areas is batman himself. For one, either his upper body is too long or his thighs are too short. The forshortening on the right (viewer perspective) thigh seems a bit off also. With this I think i might be being a bit picky but you could try and make Batman seem a bit more intense or focused. But with this stuff optical illusions with black and white can screw you up. You never know. Keep up the great work !

Awesome! Theres a bit of an Art Adams/Mignola influence in there (though it feels more Art Adamsesque.) This would have been a sweet book....I'd have bought it.
