I started watching Batman on TV in the 1970’s with Adam West. It was a staple of my childhood.
Whenever I had a chance in art school, I would do a comic book piece. I would squeeze them into assignments whenever possible.
Sometimes, I would hire a model then turn him into Batman.

The method was to use a glaze of transparent color and liquin.
And I would also use them as a subject to do demos for my students when I became a teacher.
These demos were done in class.
Then I’d scan the colored pencil drawing and adjust it even further in Photoshop. Here, I made it darker and pumped up the saturation.

One of my favorite things about a teaching job is the free paper and drawing materials.
