Batman and Robin + Edward Gorey (part 3)

This week's challenge concluded...

The Batman:


I was toying with two basic directions for Batman here; either put him in the standard leotard, or (something I saw a lot more of in Gorey's art) dress him up in a classy black suit. In the end I decided it would be more interesting to have this particular "costume" be reflective of a rich, aristocratic Bruce Wayne; Batman as a gentleman crime-fighter. It also resembles more closely Gorey's drawings of demons and vampires, things that would inspire fear in the criminals of Gorey's Gotham.

The Gorey illustration with the old man isn't a Gorey illustration: it's from Perry Bible Fellowship's Gorey pastiche.

This is very cool! I love all of your mash-ups but I'm a geek for Batman and Gorey both.
