Gunnell pencils Batman Commission by RyanWinn Gunnell pencils Batman Commission by RyanWinn
Batman Commission I did today. Super fun. Great shapes, solid lighting, good textures, smart design choice, nice and phallic. Joe Weems was loving it til I got to that last part.

But really, that aside, this is a cool piece. I don't take a commission just for the gig, I gotta like it, otherwise there will be no love in it and no point in doing it. I was unfamiliar with Micah Gunnell's work before this but I gotta say, this was a real blast to ink, even though it was on toothy paper it was good paper so that helps. Since this is an art piece and not for print I used some real watery white under the splatters and on the original he really looks rain soaked and as if water is running over him. Didn't quite take in the scan, maybe a photo will work...I will try that.

Great job on this Ryan! I didn't see it until today when someone sent me a link to their colored version over your inks. Thanks for the splatters, I love those! BTW, I never realized the phallicness until you mentioned it...I will never be able to look at this piece the same way now, so thanks for that! Ha:)

Ah, I didn't mean to ruin the piece for ya. I just always call out that stuff just to bug Joe Weems. I used to do it over his shoulder as he worked to mess with him.

This was a blast to ink. I would love to ink a cover or commission by you someday that has a female character with lots of hair. You are like one of the few Aspen artist that has made me stop and go "Whoa".

Understood.

I had that problem when I found out how to splatter with a nib...couldn't stop; EVERYTHING had to be splattered.

Then I had someone point out just that, use it, but don't abuse it. Im understanding it a little more now.

Cheers!

Haven't seen Batman look that good for a long while, it should be made into a DC Batman statue.

Super Awesome Inks on this BTW, especially the extra layer of white splatter. Really achieves that soaking wet look.
Oh and some of them sweet brush bleeds are just so pretty. Nice job Mr. Man!
