BATMAN ’89

The comic book incarnation of BATMAN ‘89, as designed by Joe Quinones (from the comic book drawn by Quinones and written by Sam Hamm, screenwriter of the 1989 Tim Burton film) which I digitally sculpted with Nomad Sculpt for the iPad Pro.

Taking advantage of the layering abilities of a digital sculpture, I was also able to sculpt a complete Bruce Wayne face under the mask. The comic book version does not, by design, strictly resemble actor Michael Keaton, who played him in the film, but is instantly recognizable as BRUCE WAYNE.

Prior to this, I’d also sculpted a version that hewed more closely to the movie:

I’m having a lot of fun digitally sculpting and learning a lot as I go. I’m self-taught, so I don’t know if I’m doing things the ”right” way, or even if some of these pieces will be printable with a 3D printer, but right now I’m having a blast and enjoying how these are coming out.

Plus I like sitting on the couch and sculpting without having to unpack or clean up any tools. That said, I feel like working this way is whetting my appetite and giving me ideas for my next traditionally sculpted project.
