Tomorrow is The Dark Night for The Dark Knight

To commemorate the release of The Dark Knight tomorrow my wife, brother, and sister-in-law were going to dress up as different Batman characters.  As we were unable to do that we decided to make cheap t-shirts with villains on them.  The writing reads "Who's Next?" As in what villain will be in the next film.  

The images look grainy when enlarged because my camera flash keeps catching light off of the paint and Lindsey's shirt, (Harley Quinn) was the test shirt.  This was before I realized the stencil needs to be removed within 10 minutes of painting the shirt otherwise bits of the stencil will adhere to the paint.  I'm going to try washing it to see if the stencil will wash out.

This is Lindsey's, she likes Harley Quinn

This is for The Britt

This is Brett's.  It's supposed to be the 
Mad Hatter, I think it looks okay.

Here's mine, The Riddler.  All of these images will take on a more matte finish once I heat set them for a few minutes, I just need to be sure the images are dry enough not to bleed.  I'll probably heat set them tomorrow morning.  Happy Dark Knight everybody!

In the vein of Joe

This is a re-tooled design of Judas, yes the one from the Bible, 
for Kelly Loosli's redhead documentary.  Kelly is using character
designs done by the master of clean lines, Joe Olson (a link  to 
his blog is in my links section). So, after seeing the inconsistency
of my design to Joe's I re-did the character to look like something
he would have done.  Hopefully I didn't fall too flat on my face.
