Cover to the one shot book out this December. I was asked to draw a cover of Batman surrounded by some of his famous villains, mostly MY favorite villains. One thing i like about working with an editor and publisher for a while, is they start to trust you, and allow you to pretty much do your own thing. It's one of the main reasons i've enjoyed working with DC for this long.
Probably one of my favorite projects this year. The cover is non-continuity, so i was able to draw it anyway i preferred. the only thing is in the printed version, IVY's skin will be Green instead of fleshy. i like her fleshy so i painted her as i liked and adjusted in photoshop.
