Gaslight Detective by BrattyBen Gaslight Detective by BrattyBen
This is for :iconstriffle: 's October Batman Jam. I decided instead of trying to interpret Bats in my own imitible style (which I was having a really hard time doing) I would draw my favorite Batman costume.

And as you can see, is the Victorian Batman from Gotham by Gaslight. Another inspiration for this piece was the Mignola penned The Doom That Came to Gotham.

Anyway, if Batman here looks a little stout, it is because I was kinda trying to do Mignola, without doing Mignola. He usually draws his guys kinda squatty, so I tried to emulate that.

Enjoy.

Interesting design, it's like a batman with a lower budget, or one in the 1930s, it looks really cool.

Thanks. It's based on the design by Mignola in a book called Gotham by Gaslight.

Awesome!

I love this batman design and you pulled it off nicely man. I have been interested in picking up the dc direct figure of this, the concept is just cool. :)

It is one of those great comics. And it is actually the first Elseworlds story DC ran. I just love that they were willing to take a chance with one of their top three.

Thats awesome. As for the "stoutness", I like it. I like that he doesnt look like spiderman in a bat costume. Way to go!

THanks. Yeah, I think Bruce would be a somewhat beefy guy. You'd kinda have to be to be carrying thugs up onto rooftops!

I really enjoyed the "Gaslight" costumes, so it's cool to see someone go with it. I was actually expecting Dan-SCH to enter this variation, not that I'm complaining about his redesign.

Y'know, I totally thought he would too. Funny. Yeah, I just decided that I would go with something different and something that maybe no one else would think of.
