Gotham Icons by KidNotorious Gotham Icons by KidNotorious
Well it's been a while since my last collaboration...

I've had this idea to make a series of iconic portraits of some of my favorite Batman characters but I needed somebody I could trust to get the colors just right and really bring them to life and that person was Copperthistle :iconcopperthistle:

From left to right:
Batman , Calendar Man , Mr.Freeze , Poison Ivy , The Riddler , Ra's Al Ghul , The Joker , Scarecrow , Harley Quinn , The Penguin , Catwoman , Two-Face and Commissioner Gordon

Unbelievable colors by :iconcopperthistle:
Lines by me :iconkidnotorious:

Calendar Man? Huh. I pegged you as more of a Black Mask or Zasz kind of guy.

I love how it is trying to bring all the characters into one big spot. :)

Like a family pose.

Great pic but i'd rather have The Mad Hatter than Ra's Al Ghul. I never thought he fitted into Batman's world well. The whole Lazarus pit thing is too 'science fictiony' for Batman.

You got full size of theese pics? Or you just draw the little part? They're just perfect. :3

I did draw them rather small but thanks to a bit of misuse by others this is the size I have to go with.

Calendar Man?
That's new...
Never heard of him.

KidNotorious Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2011
He's a oldschool villain who has made a few appearances in the comics again over the past few years as well as a appearance in the Arkham Asylum video game and Batman: Brave and the Bold cartoon.
My favorite use of him was in the Batman: The Long Halloween & Dark Victory books.

I could have filled up at least two more line ups like this with villains that people may not have heard of. Here's a article on him> [link]

Loved the latest design and I wonder what he'll do in the future.

Higher resolution, per chance? DA's recent rejigging means this needs a Download button in order to see the proper size.

I'm not sure if my version of Bane would go over so well.
Bane, Clayface, the Black Mask, I draw them all in a slightly more realistic fashion than the fans who probably like those characters more for their looks would like.

I actually had a Mad Hatter and Zsasz penciled for this line-up but ultimately thought it was overkill.

I have been thinking about making a new line-up though, maybe traditional media this time around.

Um... that's "Icon" as in recognizable status.
Like these are some of Gotham City's most iconic figures... and Calendar Man is in there as well.
