- Comic book art is traditionally flat (and certainly was in the early days). I felt like simple lines would help evoke that.
- Also, even though I am using the Nolan Batman Trilogy actors for the dolls, I'm going to be pulling their costumes from all 75 years of Batman history. Simple line art will bring consistency across the eras.
- Simple line art also means you get to color things your own way! I'll be posting guides of course, but if putting Batman in pink tights with lavender briefs makes you happy, don't be shy!
- Line art is 10x less time consuming than painting, so ostensibly this style will help me produce more quickly and post more regularly.
As a little preview, I hope the image above also reassures you that you'll be seeing numerous other characters from the Batman universe including female characters (if my previous dis of the girl Robins had you at all worried). I currently have four female characters and three male characters, so actually the women outnumber the men!
