Check out this very frightening, and realistic, 3D sculpture of a metal “Demon Batman” face, inspired by the fear gas from Batman Begins.
The Caped Crusader has been known to strike fear into the hearts of villains everywhere. Dressed in a black bat suit, skilled in martial arts, and with a whole arsenal of gadgets he’s one mean hero. Add a demon-like face to the mix, and then you have the stuff of nightmares.
According to our source, Deviant artist soulty666 is the mad genius behind this fearful creation. The piece is made to look like it was sculpted from a single piece of metal, and the artist focused solely on the head so he could spend the time to add as many details as needed. I suspect that it’s a 3D sculpture, designed on his computer since his portfolio is filled with other animations and 3D models.
In case you haven’t noticed, this piece was inspired by the fear gas that Scarecrow used in Batman Begins, where Batman’s face distorts into an image of horror. The end result, that looks part man and part mutant, can only be described as “Demon Batman”. It’s not exactly something that I would ever like to run into on a dark night.
All in all, this piece is outstanding. The level of detail is out of this world, and it’s pretty much on par with some of the artwork we’ve seen in games like Arkham City. It’s honestly really nice to see a talented artist put his skills to work and create something that resonats well in both pop-culture and geeky circles.
