Old West Dark Knight by 2ngaw by artmunki Old West Dark Knight by 2ngaw by artmunki
I've been working fairly steadily on the new Rose Black book from Rough Cut Comics [link] so this is kinda the first time in a good while I've had the chance to do some colouring purely for my own pleasure. But when I saw this piece pop up as a DD a couple of weeks ago, knowing I had a lull in the Rose pages, I grabbed the image and set it aside. I still had to fit it in around other things, but I got something I'm fairly happy with, without overworking the piece (which I often do)

All well deserved praise for the original artwork [link] goes to 2ngaw [link]
Just the colours by me, with the able assistance of CS3 & Intuous 2

[EDIT] - oops, missed something! Fixed now tho.

[RE-EDIT] - and I forgot to credit the paper texture, kindly appropriated from [link]

I would *love* to print this for my new home *_* any chance to get a bigger version, like the original maybe?

I don't really do prints for any of my colouring work, I'm afraid. As the lines are drawn by someone else I would need to get permission from the original artist to make a print, and the original lines on this one were fairly low-res, so wouldn't print up too well anyway. Sorry!

Would you believe that I said, out loud, "FUCK YEAH!" when I saw this? Because... I did :)

I think that was more-or-less my reaction when I first saw the lines, too!  ^_^

Dude, this is an amazing coloring job that just perfectly suits the original piece. I'm a costumer who does a lot of Batman costumes (including Gotham By Gaslight) and this is a seriously inspiring piece.

Thanks man. I've actually been meaning to revisit this piece, since my colouring techniques have developed a whole lot since I did this, but it's gratifying to know that it can still find new fans. And wouldn't a western-style Batman be incredibly cool! ^_^

Heck yeah! I've actually got a buddy who's doing one. Although I don't believe he saw your piece beforehand, it definitely has some of the same influences.

Aye, I've seen a few others in the years since 2ngaw posted the lines for this. I'm still kinda surprised that DC have never done an 'official' version.
