You wanna see a magic trick? -or- A José Canseco Bat? Tell me you didn't pay money for this.

These are some sketches I did while waiting in line to see The Dark Knight. There was quite a variety of people who arrived early to get themselves a proper seat for ginormous IMAX screening. I wish I could have drawn more of them.

The Dark Knight is definitely the best comic book/super hero movie aside from maybe Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but they're practically in different genres so I won't put them up against each other. Man, I could go on for hours about how awesome TMNT is. Anyways, despite all of Dark Knight's completely solid awesomeness- I still can't bring myself to draw some Batman fan art drawrings. I grew up drawing Wile E. Coyote and copying Jim Lee panels from X-Men- specifically a lot of Psylocke and Beast. I only have a few Batman comic books in my small collection- so I feel like it would be dishonest to jump on the Batman fan art wagon right now. So I'm gonna draw a Psylocke.

Yeah Betsy Braddock!

Meanwhile... I still suck at color theory.
I'm trying to work out a color schematic for the next RDCCDX short. It takes place outside a strip mall store front at night. So I tried to give a slightly green flourescence vibe to the lighted areas, but I dunno something still isn't striking me right. The only thing I know about color is that I've had good luck working with a limited range of colors- it seems to keep things cohesive.
