This illustration looks better to me now than when I first did it. It’s not just the addition of color. If I don’t like a drawing adding color to it isn’t going to make me like it more. I’ll still see all the flaws.
I’ve got quite a few Batman sketches in my sketchbooks. I don’t really like any of them. The artist in me is caught between the kid in me (who thinks Batman rocks) and the adult in me (who thinks Batman is sort of silly at best). He never manages to satisfy either of them. I wish I had time to ramble on about the whys and all behind that. Not today.
