From The Vault: Batman - 2001

This was the final result of doing three separate portraits (if Adam West as Batman, Burt Ward as Robin, and Yvonne Craig as Batgirl) with the intention of doing something with them all together afterwards.

I was just getting into doing my portraiture entirely digitally at this point, and I was really enjoying the freedom this new way of doing them afforded me. The colors are a little too saturated for me, when I look back on this now, but it sort of works with Pop Art aesthetic that was such a huge part of the Batman TV series.

And on a personal level, since the show is (still!) unavailable on DVD, I'd love to see some network get the rights to Batman and start running them again. I loved that show.

The colors do pop, but I really like it!
