Commission for BatBreaker.

This commission is based on old comic book cover where Bane is breaking Batman's spine [link]. The client wanted to see Bane breaking Catwoman's spine while Batman is lying on the ground with broken spine. I feel really bad for Catwoman:(

Strange idea. At first look, I thought it was Catwoman and Azrael, because of the metallic peices of the armor and the bright blue color of the costume.

I have seen your work before Candra and must say that the color and such is stunning, but the subject matter is beneath you.. This is deranged and feels like it is so negative in nature. If he has yet to pay you then I would take it as a loss and consider it better to not. Obviously the person who commissioned it needs mental help and counselling about violence toward women.

Batmans back is also broken so I don't see how this is necessarily about violence towards women. However as soon as I saw it I knew it wreaked 'fetish' and unsuprisingly the commissioner's favourites is full of shots of characters backs being broken. Male AND female, however. Violence is nothing new in erotica, so long as it stays in fantasy its not really something for the artist, or you, to worry about. I'm not saying I like the pictures concept but I wouldn't say kinky and weird was below =Candra either :P

This site is filled with images of both backs and necks being broken. It is a comma image for those who are turned on by his fetish! granted, it is an unusual form of erotica, but it is shared by many who appreciate streagnth, muscles and the depiction of strong bodies in conflict. being a bodybuilder and wrestler....I see nothing wrong with this. I enjoy itto the max!

If he didn't pay you why would you post his commission? Now he gets what he wants without paying you the full price.

Also did you notice his entire gallery is other people's work and he only gives a credit and a link back to the original artist on only one of them?

This makes me think most of his gallery is probably stolen art that he ripped off from other DA artists.

I don't link back because I'm not sure if the artists want to be associated publicly with the art or not...

I have paid for every single one of those commissions in full, including this one now.

You mistakenly assumed the worst, and have voiced your wrong assumptions pubicly, damaging reputations. I like to think that the artists who are willing to do my commissions have done well out of me, and I have never ripped anyone off.

Peace.

Then why post their art in the first place in your gallery if you’re not sure the artist wants to be associated with it?

Every artist has a style unique to them which can identify them and in case you didn't notice most of those works you posted have the artist's signatures in them. So once someone recognizes either of those people will find out who created the art.

If you were really worried about protecting their identities you wouldn't have posted their work in the first place and just been happy with getting a copy of the commission in your e-mail or faving the art like everyone else does and leaving it in your favorite’s gallery. That’s the whole point of having that option on Deviant Art.

Just in case nobody told you most artists don't want their work posted in other people's galleries, it's considered a form of art theft on Deviant Art unless you got the full permission of the artist to post them in your gallery. If you did then you should put a link back to all their individual pages under the commissions they made in your gallery.

So far you’ve only done that with one art piece and the artist I contacted confirmed you paid him and that he had gave you permission to post his work.

This is why posting links is a good thing. This way, people can ask the artist if they gave their consent for you to display their works in your gallery and you wouldn’t be thought of as an art thief.

And just to be clear the only thing that damaged your reputation was Candra having to publicly tell everyone you failed to come up with the second half of the commission fee you agreed to pay her. Considering the huge amount of watchers she has your not paying her on time has done more damage to your rep than anything I’ve done.

Whatever man, I pay good money for commissions, and then try to share them with whoever in the community is interested in them.
I pay hundreds of dollars per commission, and I don't profit off them, so what exactly is your problem?
Without people sharing commissions, I would never have settled on this site and subsequently spread my money to willing artists.

Get off your high-horse and stop arguing on the internet, lol.

But don't see how your argument makes absolutely no sense? You say you want to protect the artist's from being recognized and then you post their work publicly and now you say you want to share them with everyone interested in this particular thing.

You are literally contradicting the whole “I want to protect the artist’s identity” concept by doing this.

I never said you profited off the artists either you brought that up. I said you’re posting their work and not giving them the proper credit or proving you for their permission to repost their work, which again, is a form of art theft and something that isn't allowed on Deviant Art.

Unless you have the consent of the artist to repost their work in your gallery and you can prove it by linking back to them you’re not supposed to repost their stuff in your gallery. The fact that you only linked back to one artist and not the rest in your gallery makes me think you didn’t ask the other artist’s for permission to repost their work.

And I wasn't arguing I was making valid points about what you’re doing being against the rules on Deviant Art and your response was bragging about how much money you throw around and saying I’m somehow being “arrogant” for pointing out the rules of the website your on and “starting an argument” because you disagree with me and the rules set up by this site.

But I will agree with you on one thing. Trying to have a rational intelligent discussion with you is pointless. Have a nice day.

Love the pic. Hate him not paying. It makes it harder for people like me to get decently priced commissions. Cause when people pull stunts like that, artists tend to raise their prices. It happened to an artist that I commission a few times, so now his prices are higher.

It's a good picture, no doubt about it, and I know Batman gets beat to hell and back in the original from Bane...but...that does not look like Batman at all o_O With respect, that looks like some weird fetish dude who took a hit on Batman's style. Batman never wore blue or had pauldrons or, I'm guessing that the silver is, metal on the suit...or utilities on his thighs.

I also have to question...why Catwoman? I get that it was for a client, not your own idea...but Catwoman has almost inhuman flexibility. Bane would have to bend her almost completely vertical to snap her spine, giving her athletic capability. And I could be wrong about this, been a long time since I read the comics, but I don't think Catwoman and Bane ever fought, or had anything against each other. Like I said, I could be wrong about that.

All in all, it's a great piece, but honestly, it would've been much better if Batman actually looked like Batman and not...how do I put this nicely...not a homosexual portraying Batman? And again, I know the client is always right, you have to appease 'em, but for my own thought, I feel like someone closer to Batman might've made more sense, like Robin.

You are wrong on several accounts:
1. If Bane was in the midst of having slammed Catwoman onto his knee, the tremendous force can/will break her back. As flexible as she may be, the bones themselves can only take so much.
2. Aside from the suit that ~memolo pointed out, Batman regularly wore blue during the Bronze, Gold, and Silver ages of the comics. He also donned blue in "Scooby Doo Meets Batman." There are probably other examples, but I don't feel like looking up more.
3. ~memolo has already covered the Knightfall comic's Batman suit.

In most cases, the blue is a backdrop color used during lighting to give refection to the clothing. Yes, in certain occasions, it was very blatantly blue, but especially during this time period, blue was just a part of the lighting scheme. It is technically black.

As far as this suit, being Batman, no. I don't consider Jean-Paul, in the stretch of the imagination, as Batman. I consider Batman to be Bruce Wayne, of whom did eventually recover in the comics and returned to work.

In which case, this becomes a canon problem, Jean-Paul not being the one to get his back broken, but Bruce Wayne.

Yes, I'm familiar with plain black generally being avoided, because of how poor it tends to look. It's just that when I looked it up today, I found alot of material that described the suits as silver and blue-- nevermind the obvious black on the facial covering.
Due to a few attempts of trying to track the character development and storylines of Marvel characters (which resulted in my brain frying), I came to accept "Batman" as an adoptable persona. Thus, I don't have a problem with Kinghtfall.
Honestly, though, I'm not really into Marvel. It's too complicated for me, and I favour Resident Evil, The Legend of Zelda, and Jurassic Park. So... Yeah. I had to looks things up in preparation of responding to you. Not about the medical tidbit, however. I knew that already.

Rathenmedus Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It is not an "adoptable" persona. Batman is Bruce Wayne. The only times when he isn't, is when Jean-Paul *briefly* takes up the helm to fight crime before going insane, which forces Bruce Wayne back from the bench, and when he becomes too old to fight, and hands the suit to the young Terry McGinnis and teaches him how to be Batman. But that story pretty much flopped.

There were blue suits in the really old days, back when it was Adam West era of Batman, but it wasn't silver. It's usually been just plain gray, not silver, if I know which suits you're speaking of. Jean-Paul was pretty much an answer to heroes that were relying more on suits then actual powers, as for example, Iron Man, and they tried rolling with it. Though it didn't really work out, and most people though jean-Paul was far too cruel of a Batman incarnation, and wanted the original back.

And I can tell you're not too much into comic books. At all really. To be honest, I'm not either, I prefer a lot of games to comics as well, but I have my heroes here and there. Batman is DC Comics. Not Marvel. Thus your statement is pretty much null and void, because of course you wouldn't have a problem, if you didn't fully understand the material in question.

You're turning this personal, and I'm not sure if it's intentional. I'm irritated and defensive at this point, so I could be jumping the gun...
I may not be an expert, and I may have made an admittedly silly mistake; however, you insinuated that I'm a complete moron with your last sentence. And "null and void" implies that my words are worthless simply because I'm not an expert on DC. I wasn't telling you what to think in regards to Jean, so there was no need for you to attack me. I was merely expressing my personal belief and my reason for it. You sound as if you are treating opinions as facts.

On a more light-hearted note: I was referring to silver as a colour, not the metal.

I did not say you were, nor was I trying to insinuate that. I apologize if I came off harshly. I wasn't trying to berate you.

I simply mean that Marvel, nor DC, isn't really something you can Google a bit and completely understand. I was merely pointing out the mistake in which publication Batman is a part of and that, because you do seem to lack that knowledge when it comes to comic books, I'm pointing out that, logically, one would not see a conflict of interests, canon or problem with general character personality and history, if they don't understand the background of that character. But some knowledge of a subject is required when trying to make an opinion. Visually, that picture may be please the eye, the viewpoint of an artist's perspective stays there unless you are like me and others who love this particular character being portrayed, and feel the need to comment on inconsistencies.

It is like coming in and saying, for instance, I might like a rendition of a Ganondorf that had pure white hair instead of his fiery orange, if I did not know whom he was or how he's supposed to be portrayed and, naturally, there's going to be those who will point out the inconsistency.

I understood what you were trying to say. It was just the wording of the last sentence that angered me, is all. Even so, I actually regretted my heated response shortly after posting, but Deviantart doesn't grant us the option of deleting them. So, I chose to wait for your response, rather than look silly by commenting on my own post.

Originally, I was only interested in pointing out the bit about Catwoman's back. Then, however, I remembered having seen what appeared to be a blue Batman on "Scooby Doo Meets Batman" when I was younger,but I wasn't sure. In the end, I decided to appease my curiosity and turned it into a pet project. I wasn't trying to be a smart alec. Instead, I'm just someone who occasionally likes to challenge myself with research projects.

Yeah, I remember. Never did enjoy it. It is not really Batman in my eyes and more just what Jean-Paul made it, of whom did make different alterations to the suit after he received it. My main thing of what I was saying, is that isn't the Batman widely known and reverted. A version, perhaps, but Batman to me is, and always will be, Bruce Wayne, who relies more on stealth, melee and gadgets, rather then a good portion on his suit.
