Friendly Internet Robot Mosobot64 back again, folks! Y'know, I was always hoping that someone would play on the moniker "The Dark Knight" for the Batman, and *PhotoshopIsMyKung-Fu has finally done it with this awesome portrait.

Though I'm sure this isn't the only time someone has played with this theme, Kung-Fu has done a great job incorporating the knight's armour with the costume, making it very true to the character. In doing so, however, the costume elements sometimes mess with the armour, making some of the logical connection points and joints uncertain.

Lighting however, is very consistent and understated, and the character of the piece comes out well using Kung-fu's imaginative use of costume design integration.

Well done, *PhotoshopIsMyKung-Fu ! I :heart: this.

I really enjoy this piece. In my opinion, the relation between Batman and the knight are almost flawless.

I think a closer examination of the armor is needed as well. I love the mix of plate and leather (between the shoulder and cowl for example). The helmet is awesome, and the sword has a very Gothic theme, reminiscent of Gotham City architecture perhaps. The shield design is fantastic. It reminds me of the Ebony shield in Skyrim, except this one is better. I love the almost wing looking points on the upper corners of the shield, that curve towards the centre to make that sort of bat ears design we see on Batman's emblem and on batarangs. The depiction of the bat emblem works perfectly with the smooth surface of the shield.

My only negative remark is about the belt; it works, but I personally feel it looks more like a wrestling or boxing champion's belt than a knight or Batman. Very minor though.

PhotoshopIsMyKung-Fu did an excellent job capturing the image of Batman and the Knight. Definitely one of the best depictions I've seen of this combination.
