In my free time, I generally draw experimental concept art backgrounds and characters along with new brushes and techniques. Discovering new styles and textures is always amuses me, I think thats the fun stuff of my job because there is always a dark side which is waiting to explore.

So about this project, it all started in a cold winter night while I was reading the Lee Bermejo's comic "Batman Noel" issue. In the middle of the comic I felt a strong passionate feeling to draw a Batman, following seconds I found myself in front of the computer and drawing Bruce Wayne. Joker and Harlequin followed and a project comes out suddenly.

Gotham characters especially villians are always my favourite in DC because they've got unique personalities and styles. New Gotham series impressed me a lot with its dark atmosphere and stylish steampunk elements. So I added the Penguin to my project with the character and the background. characters I've and finally I've got the Flash ( favourite super power) with extra adding and just for now I finished it. But I've still Selina Kyle and Poison Ivy on my mind.
