Batman (I'm RICH...) Original Sketch by Samax Amen 8.5x11 Ballpoint Pen on Copy Paper. $100
Here's the original drawing. I drew this sitting in my car on my lunch break. I was a courier at the time, so my car was the office. Everyone was posting awesome drawings of Batman because it was the 75th Anniversary of the character's creation.
It's just a ballpoint pen doodle on a sheet of copy paper. If you buy it, I'll mount it on card stock for you .
I love this drawing. I did this for Daily Challenge, an online sketch challenge that required everyone to draw the same character for a set amount of time (usually 30 minutes). Since this one has two characters it was probably a weekend challenge, so it could be 60 minutes.
Anyways, I have never sold prints of this one before.
Like many of Batman's best villain, Kirk Langstrom is the amplification and/or opposite of Batman's attributes. Batman takes on the image of a bat to strike terror into criminals, the better to protect the innocent and seek justice.
Conversely, the scientist Langstrom creates a serum intended to bestow a bat's sonar capabilities on humans, but accidentally transforms himself into the monstrous Manbat, striking terror into the innocent and guilty alike.
Batman is the pinnacle of human strength, intelligence, and self-control.
Clayface is a great example of how characters change and evolve alongside the larger pop culture. Clayface started out as a dude whose face was pliable, so he could mold it with his hands to match anyone else's face, making him a master of disguise.
Again, this was largely a mirror of Batman's legendary detective skills. No ordinary disguise could fool Batman for long, but Clayface was next level.
But what started as another Dick Tracy villain knock-off evolved into one of Batman's most dangerous and unpredictable foes.

When the much-celebrated Batman The Animated Series re-imagined Clayface in the two part story Feat of Clay, he became a hulking shape-shifter whose body was completely made of sentient mud. Clayface could now take the form of any man, woman or object at will.
He could seduce his prey as a femme fatale, or pummel them with a sandstorm of hardened clay hammers.
In honor of Batman Day 2019, I'll draw a picture for you and mail it to you! Pretty simple, but you should hit me on messenger if you have questions. I'm limiting this to five drawings, so get in where you fit in!
