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…

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.

The Red Hood was a villain though.

Not necessarily, He only kills for the greater good. He'd be a Anti-Hero, If you're thinking of Arkham Knight Redhood, that ones a little bit different.

yes but red hood isn't a villian who wants to kill batman all the time, he just wanted revenge for batman letting him die

Oh my gosh this is fantastic. Please make something where we can see the letter! Or Batman's reaction haha! I can just picture the conversation that they're all having here. This is brilliant hah! I love the lighting that you have and all the character interaction. Also, that's fantastic that this started off with something completely different :P This is awesome!
