The Black Bat...returns.

This is my second, brand new rendition of the 30's Pulp hero "The Black Bat" from the magazine "Black Book Detective". I used a model kit of Batman by Argentinian sculptor Alterton for lightning reference. Staying away from illustrating a certain scene from any of the stories seemed a good idea. I realized that a more generic, but moody scenery shows the essence of this mysterious character best. A third one is in the making.....  Acrylics on board, 2009.
