    This one's really just a bit of fun. Lots of you like the steampunk, so I thought we'd give it one more whirl.

    Usual REMAKE/REMODEL rules apply:

    No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    NO MORE PHOTO-MANIPULATION "art". I'll just delete them. People have been drenching recent threads with several pieces at a time that they've knocked out in photoshop in 2 minutes with no thought at all. I consider this to be taking the piss now.

    HOWEVER: I will allow the interpolation of ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS into the work.

    No more than ONE submission by any one person in any one REMAKE/REMODEL.

    Now then. Pay attention:

    Immerse yourself in the era of Steampunk, and the coal-fired industrial nightmare of Gotham, where is set the popular silent films concerning The Batman. Or even The Bat-Man, if you prefer.

    There have been several such moving pictures to date, with titles like

    THE MAGNIFICENT BAT-MAN
    BATMAN RESPLENDENT
    BATMAN, A FORMIDABLE CHAP INDEED
    THE DARK KNIGHT, SPLENDID

    and the like.

    Your task is to design a poster, suitable for placement outside a cinematheque or other theatre, regarding one of these films. There are several in the series I have not mentioned, and you are of course free to make those up. I mean, use them wisely.

    You have one week. Commence.

    Yup.

    Like really really chocolate-y chocolate with some chocolate on top of the extra added chocolate.

    Calliope, I know your weakness, and I can find a whip any time I like. Be warned.

    Hey, Melinda.

    Am expecting the goods from Art and Felipe this time around.

    Today I decided to mention this thread on Twitter, so I imagine it might get quite busy here. Bring it on.

    *Sputters something incomprehensible at Melinda, hides in a corner*

    I'm thinking something along the lines of Batman Returns for this one - what villains fit a Steampunk setting better than the Penguin and Catwoman?

    DC need to commission 'A Formidable Chap Indeed' as an Elseworlds limited series right now. I'd buy it.

    Well, I don't draw (at least nothing anyone would like to see) but I do lay out posters. So here 'tis. If any site will make me play Steampunk, I guess it's this one.

    But before you hate it, remember two things:

    1. I drew a locomotive using only rectangles and ellipses.

    2. THE BAT STABS PEOPLE WITH HIS NOSE OKAY.


    Cheers.

    Edit: made it less biggened. Full size is on my site here.
