The man of the Darkness. That Man in the Night. Batman. Thought I'd redesign the dude once again but show him in his late 30's to early 40's this time. Popped a bit of Recon in there.

I was wondering if this might be your take on The Dark Knight Returns Batman.  Then I saw your companion piece with child Tim Drake.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

sweet designs should do more like this ..a grounded batman ..with a kevlar cape to ..a batman that can't fly but uses his cape as a protection tool.i think batman don't need to look like an bat-man ..

I like the addition of the flak jacket, greaves and forearm/hand protection. Gives Bats that "tactical" feeling.

The design might benefit a little from the inclusion of a subtle, understated logo on the chest. Perhaps a little more chunkiness on the cowl too to give a sense that there is some padding up in there.

All-in-all, I like the redesign quite a bit.

If there ever were a RL Dark Knight, his look would be very similar to this.

Lovely work here!  Have enjoyed your work for a while.  Inspiring stuff.

This is really nice, but...

Batman here reminded me of Solid Snake.

I like that. No really, I do.

I love it. It reminds of the armor he wore at the end of The Dark Knight Returns when he faced off against Superman. 
Adceph Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2014
cool cool cool
Peorgey Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2014
Just one awesome piece after the other.
THEINSIDER45K Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014
Now this is epic. :)
It somehow reminds me of the Batman from the Shortcut Batman Vs. The Terminator.
jrseals Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I like it. I'm one of a few Batfans that doesn't mind him wearing SWAT gear
Graphicboa Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014  Student Digital Artist
This is probably the best real world interpretation of Batman. If only he looked like this more often. It's awesome!
rostridge Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Great design! Love the SWAT kinda feel.

This needs to be a skin for infinity crisis
Drgnkpr313 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Look very close to the Frank Miller "Dark Knight Returns," Batman, one of my favorite designs, but more tactical. I'd think his armor would be more hidden, to add an element of surprise to his opponents as to why their attacks are glancing off, but very good design indeed!
JeffSWalsh Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014
I love this. The touch of "realism" in the design just adds such depth to an already cool character. I know it's not the same style artistically but I got real Frank Miller Dark Knight vibe from this
Hognatius Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Like this. Perhaps the best 'real world' costume design for Bats I've seen.
