Letter to Batman by PTimm Letter to Batman by PTimm
EDIT: 6/11/16

originally started as a study of "Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire by Ilya Repin" but I kept seeing batman villains in it.

You can read more about the history of Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire by Ilya Repin here:    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reply_of…

Gonna try my best and name all the people from left to right:

Manbat, Shiva, Talia, Ra's al ghul, Harleyquinn, Bane, Black Mask, Hugo Strange, Catwoman, Joker, scarecrow, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Riddler, Twoface, Hush (great graphic novel illustrated by Jim Lee, if you haven't read it go buy it. Its so worth it) , Penguin, Killer Croc, Red Hood, Mr Freeze, Clayface, Phantasm (from the animated series movie Mask of the Phantasm), Poison Ivy, and Victor Zsasz

you can see the process here www.artstation.com/artwork/PEb…

YOU CAN BUY A PRINT OF IT HERE FROM MY FRIENDS STORE: blog.artlords.com/product/a-le…

It's rly good but I have one comment (not to be judgment and sorry if i am) but maybe you should've had joker writing the letter. It's really good tho!

Oh trust, I asked a lot of people while making this what would be better. Originally I had it so the Joker was writing the letter, but after talking to a lot of DC fans the majority of them agreed it would make more sense to have the Riddler writing the note :D I always talk to a lot of people that are fans the of IP when making these fan arts to get the most info I can

I think it does make a little sense that the Riddler is writing the note because he's the RIDDLER. But thx 4 the info on that. It's really good and keep up the good work on all your art!!

Just photoshop and a lot of drawing practice, I also watched almost every single one of Dave Rapoza's Crimson Daggers videos, and participated in a couple of the challenges to help improve. I highly recommend them if you want some good advice for improvement :)

Batman will surely get the letter since he seems to be observing it in the background.
