    Is this book any good? I'm trying to draw Batman but I end up drawing non Batman looking kinda way. If so any of you had experience from this book?

    Feedback will be helpfull.

    I don't think you need a book to learn how to draw Bats. I mean, a butt-load of the artists that draw him for DC never look alike...you rarely see that happen anyway.

    I say learn how to draw period, then you can (in theory) do any character.

    Ya lol, at first I was like "well people draw him differently...". But seeing the link made sense. My brother I think has been trying to get Bruce Timm's style down...I think he said he almost got it...just he has all these other drawings to work on for school he does not have much time. Maybe I should show him that book. :up:

    For one it is more of a cartoonish look for Batman rather than in the comics more realistic. Don't you remember his art from the animated series? I think at one point there was some series based from the animated ones that Bruce Timm drew the art for the comic.

    Well there you go again. Any of the animated shows style of drawing is different compared to the comics...they give a more cartoony look like they should. Even though comic artists have different styles they dont have the cartoony element to them. I'm not saying not to get that book, that would be cool to draw his style.

    This book has some lessons to learn, but mostly common sense.

    It is great for a beginner.

    Well unless you mean learning how to draw a specific artist's style for drawing Batman then there is not a way to "learn how to draw Batman". If you know how the costume basically looks you can draw him. Learning how to draw Batman a way a certain artist does is different.

    Well in part of that link you see Tim Sale drawing Batman with small ears and beneath it long ones in a headshot.
