I always love working over sketches or commissions because there's more of a rawness and/or fearlessness to that work. We as artists tend to experiment or let loose with them, including Jim--though his sketches tend to be waaaay better than most people's panel work. I use opportunities like these to try new style's or approaches to his art and this was no exception.

Last sketch we did was mostly cool tones so I thought I would do an orange moon and sky for extra drama and to pop him. I loved the Dark Knight film and that helped fuel my inspiration for this piece.

Wouldn't it be cool to see a Jim Lee DK Joker? Cough-hint-hint-cough!!

Jim is incredible. Maybe the best artist to emerge publicly, in the post Michelangelo era.

That's what All Star Batman SHOULD look like! Matter of fact the whole book should've been like that movie!
Damn Frank Miller, Jim Lee Rocks! Amazing collab guys, like I need to say it.

Sinc' never disappoints!

And that's how Bruce Wayne's successor might as well look like.
