Victorian Batman by MatthewRHumphreys Victorian Batman by MatthewRHumphreys
Since I'm in a rut right now and not drawing much new the last few weeks I'm gonna post up these practice designs. These aren't meant for any projects or portfolios so much as they're working on my basic design chops.

These were done before Christmas.

Victorian Batman/Bruce Wayne. I remembered, but haven't actually read Gotham by Gaslight but I remember loving the look of the Batman art I'd seen from it. So I thought I'd take a whack at a Victorian styled Batman, with gas powered grappling hook and all. I tried to picture what the character would be like in storyline and since I didn't read GBGL I dunno what his backstory is there, but I pictured him as more of a tinkerer rather than a billionaire considering at the time it would be less likely for a tinkerer to seem odd constructing things than a modern day CEO of a technologies corporation.

I often feel that a lot of Victorian/Edwardian/Steampunk designs are over done, but this actually looks really good.

A fantastic take on the Dark Knight. Every note to detail has been made and the piece is just fantastic.

Great design. It feels clean and nice and I'm very fond of the stitches in his cloths.
Well done!

This is a very interesting design. The goggles are fantastic. It would be awesome to actually see a Victorian version of the Batman series. Wonderful work with this picture.

Love the SteamPunk influence... The logo on the back of the cape is great!
