Making of: Batman Concept

In making-of I get to grips with Art vehicle design, Batman and fulfill my dream of seeing him on a bike!

With all the Arkham stuff going around I inspired to do something a bit Art Deco. I just knew that I to create a 1920s, Art Deco skyscraper in some inclement be it snow, rain or fog.

As a lot of my work, I initially see if I can do it loose/quick but (as a lot of my work) I found that I to do a ton of research and wound up preferring a of loose and tight. Onward…


I mashed up photos paint to try and get a decent composition. I that I’d be making the building in 3d so was some discomfort in picking a angle as it would have to well into a more medium and may not work as expected.

With that in mind I roughing some geometry in 3d…

The 3ds max

This was the basic building I came up with having some rudimentary research on New York architecture. My next was seeing what the paint-over would look like. So I quickly on to that phase and up a few pics.

The Photoshop mock-up

I’ve hit this wall with paint-overs. How much to how much to paint. If you model too you’ll model yourself a corner, if you don’t model then you’ll potentially to paint a lot of perfect geometry and to deal with symmetry and etc.

So I tried another with a little less to see how it too would work once Photoshop…

Hmmm, this time I that under-modelling would not be an because of all the repeating geometry for the and floors etc. I decided to all the basic shapes and let texture do the rest. But first…


I did a lot of into Art Deco architecture. The channels of google image Here’s a collage I made of all the key I’d found.

I kept this up on my spare monitor while to act as a guide. Also noted the foggy atmosphere and how light with it.

There’s also key features of Art Deco styles as weird, minimalist sculptures adorn walls of this of building. So I tried to incorporate by downloading a few basic models and them into something resembled Art Deco. I had to be careful at one stage I wondered if I would to model a whole statue, would have taken

Always better to avoid routes while trying to concept art – find quick where possible.

The final stage

Here’s what I up with in terms of the building…

At stage I started to play the idea that there be a motorcycle in the foreground with on it. Although I’ve never good with vehicles or I knew it wasn’t going to be but would require some and a step into the unknown!

that I began trying to free 3d models of motorcycles I could later embellish in Photoshop. It took ages to something and even then it was far ideal. Here’s how the basic looked…

I wasn’t happy it but was basically praying that my skills would be up to it.

The Photoshop phase

I liked the of the previous mock-up, so I brought in and up-scaled them to match the 4000px document.

Then it was a matter of taking night-time photos from cgtextures and them one at a time onto the holes I’d made (yawn!). how they looked once I’d that…

At one stage I had figured out a way – by dragging on a whole vertical and making it line up with the strips in my building. Wasn’t but again, there is a loose here that I want to

Next up – Batman. Wasn’t forward to this part, I say, I’m no character specialist. I by roughing in his shape. No reference for

I also decided I wanted an on one of the floors of the building to give it action. Perhaps Batman has from a scene or some In my mind the building is the headquarters of a that manufactures narcotics and has just blown up a key aspect of it got the hell out of there on his superbike.


I basically grabbed about every body I could and threw it into in Photoshop. It was fairly quick but frustrating to get things looking without decent reference.

As you can see I actually modelled/painted the tail end of the I thought that Batman not have a cape. For some this idea just quite work and Batman … without his cape. So on it

Finally I had to fill in the mid-ground. I knew what was going to go so it was always bugging me and taunting me. I it with a wall that was in graffiti, ivy and dirt, then some smoke to break up any (some lines were through Batman’s head).

A little tweakery in Photoshop and I was

The last thing I did was to put some on Batman and his bike. This ALL the difference. It’s always a idea to do this were as it makes your subject/s

And that’s that. Feel to hit me up with any questions!
