Art for 22by7!

Title: Let's do it old school.
Gift for: 22by7
Artist: chen_san
Rating: G
Fandom: Batman villains
Warnings: none
Artist's Notes: You said that "I dig the hell out of Batman/Gotham stuff, esp. crazy Gotham villains"... and so I sat down and thought about my possibilities. And then I decided to draw two of my own favourite DC villains - the Riddler and Two-Face :3 And I remebered the times of the old cartoon, when Batman villains were just evil and not psycho ^^" that's what I somehow tried to capture in this picture as well. So I hope you like your two villains :D
And Merry Christmas!

Way to carry off black shadows! And I dig how unconcerned they are about the horde of bats swooping all over the place. Psssh, bats. :P

Oh, neat! I'm a sucker for that kind of framing device - an enclosed background with the characters standing outside it - and it just looks great. :D The misty moonlight effect is gorgeous. I also love the beautiful, deep shadows you have going on here, and your style of drawing faces (particularly around the nose and mouth). It's so dramatic without being grim and gritty, which is quite refreshing! (Although I must say, I don't really remember Harvey being that . . . sweet-looking as Two-Face, even back in the day. ;))

"Just evil and not psycho", ahahahahah! What a perfect description, and I think you captured that less-distressing version of the slightly (but not too) campy Gotham villains perfectly. The sidelong look from Harvey is especially effective. Very nice!!

Thank you so much ^^
And yeah... in my childhood the villains were just pure evil... and not "psychotic strangely maybe evil and only corrupted by the community" XD But I must admit I love the new versions, too... just childhood memories are so precious XD

Two-Face! One of my favorite Batman villains. I like this, the dramatic shadows combined with the moonlight and bats give it a good Gotham atmosphere. (Though it looks like Two-Face and Riddler to me? I assume the Joker mention was a typo?)

It was a typo ^^" I mentioned it to the mods when I read your comment and it was changed XD I don't even know HOW I could type Joker ... XD
And I'm glad you like it ^^

I love how unconcerned they look about the bats--Riddler looks gleeful even. ;D And gorgeous coloring and shading. Very comic book, but with some lovely added depth from the materials you used. :D

I love your clear, confident lines in this, and the coloring! Great work with the Riddler especially-- he's staaaaaaaring at me, ahhh :DD

Oh, that's gorgeous! I love the shadows (particularly the squiggle that's almost question-mark shaped).
