Here's Mud in Your Eye

Why, hello there everyone. Welcome back to the Wednesday edition of ninjaboy's sketch-a-day.

Today's sketch is of Gotham City's Dark Knight, engaged in battle with Clayface. I remember some of the first Batman books that my brother and I really got into were a series of Detective Comics when Batman was trying to hunt down Clayface and some people who have the same body as his.
We got these issues as part of either a Christmas present, or maybe a birthday present. The gift was a giant 'grab bag' of comics. Most of which were DC books. Actually, now that I think about it, they were all DC books. There was a handful of almost all of the major titles at that time. And the Batman books that really grabbed our attention were these Mud Pack issues, as well as a series of comics where Batman was trying to apprehend a much darker version of the Riddler.

These were easily the reason why Batman became one of my favorite comic book characters of all time. I remember reading them and feeling, nervous, scared even. These were books to read in a dimly light room. Following the caped crusader through the gritty and violent city of Gotham as he uses his detective skills to track his prey.

Anyway, I hope you all get a kick out of today's sketch. I know I had fun drawing it. As usual it was created in CS3 on the good ol' MacBook using my Bamboo tablet.

See you all back here tomorrow for another new sketch.
