REMAKE: Steampunk Batman by PaulSizer REMAKE: Steampunk Batman by PaulSizer
UPDATE: WooHoo! Daily Deviation! Hot Dog! and Thanks!
If you have a chance, please check out my main page for a way that you can help me get my Little White Mouse graphic novel back on comic store shelves! [link]

Note: For all those requesting this as a print; Since it includes a character that I do not own the copyrights to, I cannot offer this as a print for profit. Sorry.

**************
This weekend's REMAKE challenge from Warren Ellis was a hum-dinger, and it's already way beyond awesome.
Here's his challenge brief"

"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."

That's all I needed to hear. Enjoy.
If you haven't already, you NEED to go over and see ALL the brilliant entries that have been pouring in. It's simply amazing!

this is an interesting take on Batman. I wonder if you would be interested in letting me use your art in a fan art of the week post on the Batman fan website I co-edit called Caped Crusades. You would of course get full credit as the artist, I would either your deviantart username or your full name as you choose. let me know what you thknk.

That's fine. If you could please credit the artwork to Paul Sizer, and provide a link to my website: www.paulsizer.com
If you want, you can also include the text I have with this piece, so that people know the context of how and why I did this.
Thanks much, 
Paul

Hey PaulSizer, I saw a Charles Addams cartoon (as in newspaper cartoon) that reminded me of this. It featured a man wearing wings just like Steampunk Batman's, and he was standing in an elevator saying "the roof, please" to the elevator man. Did you see it and get inspired to do this?

I know the panel cartoon that you're referring to, and I love Charles Addams work, absolutely brilliant. That said, I never put the two together, but you're right! Good historic eye!
