The Dark Knight Falls by vicariou5 The Dark Knight Falls by vicariou5
This idea came to my head when Bane was first announced as the main baddie in The Dark Knight Rises (before any official pics were released) and I was compelled to pull an all nighter and bring it to fruition. The only references used were TDK stills for the batsuit detail and a few musclemen to tighten up the anatomical details on BANE. Its sort of "comic incarnation of Bane meets Nolan's Bats!"

Materials used: 4B and mechanical pencil, kneaded eraser, and blending stick on 8X10 vellum paper. Painted and finished up on photoshop.

Approx 8 hours.

That's the way Bane atta look. Not like some shorty pants smootho with a voice that's supposed to make up for his lack of size. Good work.

Im certain that the Bane we'll get to see in Nolans movie will be a great departure from the Bane we are used to (not counting the Batman & Robin catastrophe) but this is the Bane I know and he kicks ass and I am sure NOlans interpretation will do just as well.

FREAKIN AMAZING!!! Bane looks terrific!! This is the kinda muscled mountain I'd be afraid of (not that retard in the George Clooney Batman). You're anatomy is excellent, I love how you got all the viens in there. I would have found them very difficult.
