Freeze! by PolishTank48 Freeze! by PolishTank48
Alright,this pic has been in the works for months now. It was a time consuming and protracted process,especially because I was having a hard time painting the SWAT members and due to the fact that I have been so busy lately. I would work on this piece every now and then whenever I had some free time and yesterday I was finally able to finish it. I was obviously inspired by those scenes in The Dark Knight where Batman finds himself confronted with various SWAT units. :-)

- Background based on [link]
- Photo references used to paint the SWAT members and Batman.

I hope you like it! Thanks for looking :)

This does remind me of a scene from Year One where Batman was cornered by Gotham SWAT

Yeah, I think they also used that scene from Year One in Batman Begins where he escapes from Arkham to save Rachel. :)

Alternate description.
"Hmm, what a very interesting portion of wall. Thanks for lighting it up for me."
"Well, you're quite welcome, Mr. Batman."

You are very welcome. Yesterday they announced Batman 3 will be called The Dark Knight Rises. No word on a villian so far. They nixed Joker and Riddler so those two won't be in it.

Yeah,I was surprised to learn that the Riddler won't be a villain in The Dark Knight Rises. By the way,how do you like the title? :)

Awesome job with this one, man! You're such an excellent painter. Great job with the lighting and everything. These guys are in a dark room, with their flashlights being the primary/only light source, and you can definitely tell. The detail in the cop on the left side is great, especially all the creases in his arms and pants. I also really like the strong highlight on the helmet of the cop in the foreground--there's a great sense of realism there. It's a very strong piece, my friend! Keep up the great work!

Nie chce mi się pisać na temat filtrów, programów, backgroundów i tym podobnych =P

Obraz jak przystało, klimatycznie mrrroczny >:3

SWAT pewnie myśli że go mają, a gacek i tak im ucieknie >8D

Ojć, chyba przerwali mu w śledztwie co? >D

Eh, jakiś czas temu oglądałam Batmana Begins bo w tv leciał i stwierdziłam że choć nie jestem nałogową fanką takich rzeczy to mi się kurde podoba i nic nie poradzę x)

Lubię DC, Marvel'a, Hasbro... tylko nie lubię jak się na mnie jak na debila patrzą bo mnie to interesuje, a nie pierwsza, druga, ostatnia miłość, lol :/

Yet another reason I simply adore your work, PT. Stared at this piece for almost 10 minutes in sheer shock... The people are incredibly realistic, and Bats, of course, is incredible.

Mind if I point out one little bitty critique, though? Amidst all the amazement, there is one spot that I could see room for improvement...

Alright, since you insist. ;)

Take a look at the lights - You have SO many light sources, and the lights reflecting off his mask and cape are near perfect... but for some reason, Batman apparently left his shadow at home. Glance at the wall behind him- especially that center, circular light - where's the shadow on it? Follow the line that this particular light would shine, and there should be a shadow about three 'feet' down the wall, THEN the rest of the circle of that light, and a bit bigger than that on his cape. Does that make sense? Sometimes I have to shine a light on something from all (however many, in this case 3) angles, to see how the shadow's cast... Shadows kill me, too. That one particular circle, and the lack of shadows on the wall (in theory, he should cast three shadows, from the three lights) just perplexed me. :) Hope that helped!
