263 (who?)
Who let the nuts out? -Arkham- by xanykaos Who let the nuts out? -Arkham- by xanykaos
Just in time for Halloween! Well, not quite. But this is what I spent most of Halloween Night doing.

Assignment for Drawing for Sequential Art--draw an interior enviroment, with at least four figures. The class decided on a mental institute. I was sure it was going to be kinda boring, and then I suddenly went on a Batman kick (I blame the Riddler--why are you in my brain?!?!). Sor it's Arkham Asylum. Good old Arkham.

I'm...reasonably pleased with this. Not ridiculously so, but it's got its high points. It has it's low-points too, like not being about to tell the girl doing the high-kick is Harley, not being about to tell the shadow in the doorway is Two-Face, and not being able to tell the things coming out of the doorway are vines. But then again, considering all the detail work as a 4AM job... eh.

Oh, and that's the Riddler on the side. He's writing a riddle, of course. In blood. It's so hard to make him distinctive without the bowler aht/spandex. Y'know, something I find odd is that, in the only comic I've got where he's got a cameo, they let him wear his mask while in the asylum. Wonder why? Maybe cuz it just looks cool.

I love the gassed police man, though. Easily my favorite part to do, and the only one that came out exactly how I wanted.

If I ink this when I get it back (which I think I might do--for practice), then I guess I'll move this into scraps.

love the pipe deatil on the ceiling, and the smiling face of one of the jokers victims! And I immediately knew the girl was the one and only Harley Quinn :D

(Takes a deep breath) Ah, nothing puts a smile on my face quite like an Arkham Riot.

"So, let's think to ourselves, kiddies. We've managed to, uh, oust the opposition and take all the doctors hostage. (Well, all the living doctors.) The nurses are tied up in Pea Brain's cell, the orderlies are either playing "magic coin toss" with my good buddy Harvey, having a screaming contest with Johnny boy, or laughing their brains out at Harley-pie's jokes. Dummy & Dumber are duking it out with Zsasz in the halls, along with all the other lesser loons, and we basically have the makings of a real FUNhouse on our hands."

One of my favorite fanfictions....And now I will never look at a riot the same again. This picture just reminds me of it so.

Awww, MAN!!
No Scarecrow... TT_TT

LOL!! That's alright the awesomeness of the other character made up for that. And don't worry about us not being able to tell.

I was able to figure out who everyone was in the picture pretty easily. Except Two-Face. I couldn't figure out the sillouette.

Beautiful! And the Riddler looks very creepy here. Funny that four years later they would actually make a videogame in which the Riddler does write a riddle in blood, inside Arkham's walls...

This is veeery nicely done. And I realized who they were. You can tell from the flipping coin about Harvey, so I guess it's just if you notice that detail. Anyway I like it =]
