yeh, this one works great man. dont get the scary batman intimidation thing on his entry, but he seems more neutral and approachable, so whether thats good in this scene is the thing. I noticed the layout had him kinda in shadow, just like a silhouette as he was at the desk...so really they darker image with bats head blacked out worked better. this could still work though, because it kinda re-establishes batman as being a dark character in that panel. But really, if I was reading this in a comic, i wouldnt give it a second thought, so dont worry too much.
Like this shot- the added shadows really help it out. I was thinking last night, it might even be cool to have him in the corner of the room and just step out of the shadow- he had been there the whole time! Great work, love your style on the bat!
Well, my feeling is that since the GCPD is full of graft and cops on the take, they probably wouldn't be putting too much money into the department. And since Gordon probably doesn't have alot of friends there, they gave him the crappy office.
I think it fits his character, because he's a little worse for wear himself.
