Batman Statue by seangordonmurphy Batman Statue by seangordonmurphy
My Batman B&W statue was hand-modeled by the same artist who did Mignola's. Most people use digital modelling these days, so I was thrilled when DC gave me someone who could do it old school. My goal was to make it look good from every direction (rather than having him just standing there), so I added lots of directional details to keep the eye flowing (the cape, the Dark Knight stick, etc). The final version will also have a batarang on a cable hanging from the belt, which will also help the flow.

Dude, this is SO mega sick, I still regret that day years back when I saw the mignola statue at the comic book store and didn't buy it. This is easily the first i've seen that I liked as much.

That is absolutley gorgeous, captures your angular style well, the Mignola one also has his angular look. Who is the sculpter?

You can really tell the care involved with matching the detailing in the face with the hatching you do in the art. Looking forward to when this becomes available.

I really like the statue!Amazing job! the modelling captures the line style of your artwork.But i have one little complain.
I dont like too much the cape in between Batmanīs legs. But everything else is awesome,specially the pose.

This is truly exceptional—your drawing and this sculpt. So urban art deco! His cape even looks like skyscrapers. The sculptor deftly translated your drawing style. Wow. I'd love to know the artist's name!

Those texture etchings are incredible and that pose with the cape wrapping around is inspired.

I remember seeing the original drawing you did for the concept. When I saw the image above, my first thought was how it looked wonderful from all directions. All according to your plan, I see. The kind of things that separate a good artist from a great artist.

That is a near perfect 3-d representation of your work! Bad ass! I still need Mignola's and Pope's and now this one apparently . . .
