Per a suggestion from @CynicalPink after last week’s Batman I drew using bats, I made The Flash poster drawing the Flash and colliding parallel worlds using tiny lightning bolts, with Michael Keaton as Batman once again out of bats. It was a challenge especially to get a reasonable realistic look using the same shape repeated by hand so I hope you like it. Now I’m going to take a nap!

Ok, that is extremely radical.

Exactly what @SuperBlueGrodd said!! The commitment it takes, you are astounding!

PS
Keaton looks spot on too!!

Thank you! I just don’t color often and feel like it shows on Nightwing, but I will continue to practice to get better!!

I may have gotten a little carried away there, but she is strong enough to carry me. LOL! :smile:

@SuperBlueGrodd thanks!

@RobArt471 thanks! It did take a lot of work to do more so than Batman out of bats because he was mostly in shadow.
I was a little worried on Keaton as I wanted to capture him as an older Batman but still make him recognizable as that specific Batman

@RobArt471 astounding work! I like the Gotham Knights one especially the spinning weapon and just the subdued color scheme.
Wonder Woman was amazing! It looked right out of a comic book. She looks so imposing! Great job!

Thank you so much for the flattering words!!

BTW, I would love to see the Batman Who Laughs “Flash version” made from Lightning Bats. J/king! You probably have carpal tunnel already!!

I’m not happy with Supes face.

@Goldk thanks! I wanted to capture his likeness as best I could and the wrinkles gave me more shadows to play with.
Great job on your post! I like the terror I can feel in the team running from Superman. I thought Superman looked great and creepy like he was under mind control which may be the reason he is using heat vision? Great job

@RobArt471 I must say it intrigued me. I like when ideas just get my creative juices flowing. Would a lightning bat look like this? If so maybe I can do something…

That looks like a lightning bat to me!

Supes looks good to me along with the rest of it. IMO, I think this is cover quality stuff. The boiling flesh on King Shark, even Harley’s mouth/tongue is cooking. So much detail in everything. Really makes me think of George Perez by the style and quality. Superbly done!

@ImpulseMaxMercury A friend! :3 I love him

@RobArt471 I actually really like both! And neither are easy to do with all the muscles, especially with Nightwing you can’t hide anything! So props to you dude :clap: The facial expression and armor shading is my favorite part of wonder woman’s :kissing_closed_eyes::ok_hand: Just curious, when you start drawing these what area do you start with?

@Goldk I’m so impressed with your hands. Harley’s hand is the first thing I noticed and I’m jelly :clap: I also love the poses and overall placement of everyone, it really captures the chaos and personalities :+1:
