Original thumbnail was a tiny pencil sketch, which I scanned, then refined the composition, etc, digitally. Then I printed it back out so I could lightbox the sketch to pencil it.
Halfway through inking it, I decided I wasn’t happy with how the wings were turning out, so I lightboxed it again and started over… U_U Despite this, I’m still faster working traditionally than digitally. :V
Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham is a 3-issue comic book miniseries published from November 2000 to January 2001 under DC Comics’ Elseworlds imprint. Written by Mike Mignola and Richard Pace and illustrated by Troy Nixey (pencils) and Dennis Janke (inks), with Mignola providing covers, the story deals with an alternate Batman in the 1920s fighting against mystical and supernatural forces that are taking Gotham by storm after he accidentally reawakens the being known as The Lurker on the Threshold.
I read this series before I actually read any of the Hellboy comics and introduced me to Mignola’s work. I still have the first two issues and have been searching for the third for years now.
The story takes familiar characters from Batman and DC history and work them into a story that would easily be a great Call of Cthulhu rpg campaign. One of the best scenes in the book is when the newly resurrected Ra’s Al Ghul, who gains his power from a dead, forgotten city of a race of prehistoric reptilian, unleashes a Plague of Reptiles upon the hapless Gotham
Right. Why is Lord Dominator not called Lady Dominator? Does she not know proper grammar?…
(I think a staff member explained it but I can’t remember where to find the post. Still, when you consider how Dom was treated pre-Battle Royale and then Post-Battle Royale, you’ll see that some of the characters [Like Wander, Hater and Awesome] began to view her not as a threat but as a potential person to date [in Wander’s case, he was trying to get Dom and Hater together]. I believe Dom begins her reign in a new galaxy as “Lord Dominator” the Large imposing menace, in order to instill fear throughout the populace and it is only when absolutely necessary will she reveal herself as a attractive woman in order to gain the upperhand in situation [Such as in The Battle Royale when Hater became a gibbering fool after the reveal]. It could be possible that Dom destroyed a few galaxies without ever having been found out.)
