"This city deserves a better class of criminals"- Joker

I made MOST OF THEM as I imagined them in the Nolanverse( Batmanīs Universe, through the eyes of Nolan), but not all of them, since there are some that I think that that just wouldnīt fit in this universe.

SO.... from left to right
-Killer Croc
-Black Mask
-Deathstroke
-Scarface and the Ventriloquist
-Deadshot
-Bane
-Riddler
-Poison Ivy
-Harley Quinn
-Joker
-Harvey Two face
- The Penguin
- Catwoman
-Scarecrow
-Mad Hatter
-Clayface
-Ra's al Ghul
-Thalia al Ghul
-The Great White Shark
-Hush
-Mr. Freeze

Some of them we have already seen in the movies...most of them we havenīt.
It would be cool if warner made an animated series based on this Bat-Universe.

All of this characters belong to DC Comics.

Oh, Deathstroke, I know you're a Titan villain. Bear with it. Nightwing might appear and then you can continue your unhealthy obsession.

this makes me cry....   we almost had this until heath ledger died. apart from his personal loss, the loss of talent and literary quality of his work as joker are depressing.

You know the grat thing about this list? It's also nearly the entire Rogues Gallery for the Batman Arkham Games...

Well, technically Great White Shark and Scarface have only had minor appearances, but maybe they'll be in Arkham Origins?

Maggotx9 Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
haha yeah I guess you're right. To be honest I don't think the Great White Shark will be in Origins because he is more of a "new" villain, and the game takes place in the early days of Batman.

I love your depiction of Clayface & Penguin. I usually see Clayface as a blob & Penguin an overly huge nosed ball. The realism of your characters is great, wonderful job :iconclaplaplz:

This is seriously badass. I love the style of the characters, especially Black Mask, Deathstroke, Dead Shot, Bane, and The Joker.

I also LOVE how you included the "Nolan Style" of Bane and Joker. Very awesome! :+fav:

um... this is not good... I guess would be a good start for my argument...

I do not approve of this piece for a variety of reasons, would be the main point. Let's go step by step.

First, characters that would or would not fit in this universe. You think that the likes of Poison Ivy and Clayface are fine in this universe, while you think prometheus and fire-fly are not? First of all, the nolan universe is greatly based on and limited by realism; Ra's al Ghul is turned from an immortal incarnation of the devil that has destroyed civilizations for centuries, into a simple man with excellent training who is part of the league of shadows; an organisation in which the ideology is immortal, not the character. with joker they take away the whole radioactive waste bit that turned his face white, and simply make it makeup. And with these likes of realism, you don't see the problem with Killer croc, a man born with a deformity that makes him a super-human, or even more so, Clayface, who bathed in atomic goo that turned him into clay? And under these circumstances, Fire-Fly, a perfectly reasonable pyromaniac, Maxie Zeus, some dude with lightning hands and a god delusion, and Prometheus, a man who rivals Batman's gadgets, are all not fit for this universe?

Second, The character designs. They're just no good. Going one by one, (ignoring the ones that are fine) the Ventriloquist has no character, Scarface looks in no way evil, Deadshot is missing his wrist-canons, and considering he is a marksman, perhaps the weapon-choice should be altered, Bane is exactly the one from the film, except that he looks like a brute, Harley should be thinner, and has no head-dress of any sort and is posed and clothed blatantly for sex-appeal, joker is exactly the one from the film, Penguin looks like Lex Luthor in Dragon Ball stile, Catwoman is NOT exactly the same one from the film, same with Scarecrow, Clayface is thin and clothed, Ra's and Talia are NOT the same ones from the film, and Hush looks like Goku after a fight with Freezer.

On some of the above I should probably expand. Penguin is known for his deformities and his flamboyance; The man is very short and hunched, which does not show in this picture, and dresses himself with top-hats, fur-coats, etc, not like a respectable business man, because he is not. Clayface is a character that is generally drawn as a hulking semi-human blob of clay. Now, this blob has the ability to shape-shift, divide, and even change the colour of his skin, thus, that he should be wearing clothes under such human attributes is simply stupid. If he is trying to hide he could easily disguise himself as a beggar, a business-man, or even a house-wife, and if he is not trying to hide, then the hat and cape are just not necessary. Hush should have a brown coat, but that's something minor. The thing about some looking like in the films and some not looking like in the films is exactly that; if these are the characters as you imagined them in the Nolan universe, then the ones that appear in it should look like in it.

Third, poses. First and foremost, Croc looks like a douche. And Croc is not a douche. other than this, most characters have poses that just don't make the cut. They look plain; they look stiff, and they are over-shadowed by those that do have proper poses. And Croc looks like a douche.

Fourth, the colours. While you may think that colours make the picture better, they do not; your colouring skills in this pic kill the character's character, and make them all look completely stiff, when a better class of criminals should all look dynamic and dangerous.

Fifth, eyes. You seem to be un-able to draw anything but slanted eyes. Yet characters such as the Penguin and Two-face do not fit slanted eyes. Plus, Banes eyes contribute in making him look like a brute.

Sixth, the back ground. It's like... 'what?...' I mean... With such great characters, instead of doing the easy thing (to copy and paste the characters into the back ground), you could put a symbol, or picture that represents them, and the pic would already be so much better.

Seventh, I don not think that it would be cool if Warner made a cartoon series based on this universe, since the greatness in the films came from Nolan's amazing writing and directing skills, meaning that a cartoon series would probably screw things badly; and given how TV works presently, they would sensor all the good things.

Eighth and last, how these characters fit into the Nolan universe. Christopher Nolan made his characters to look like they could exist within the confines of our modern society and environment, yet these characters look absolutely alien most of the time, and all of them ruin the dark-seriousness of the films. Joker is a man with severe psychological conditions, and paints his face and wears purple clothes because he simply likes it. Ra's al Ghul wears a suit of light armour when stealth-ing, and a suit when trying to pass by un-noticed. both of these approaches work to keep the universe within these dark-realistic confines. If Harley showed up in front of a police squad with a bright red and black suit, she would get her guts shot out all the way to Metropolis. Don't get me started on the rest.

Thank you for reading this far, and please understand that I do not mean to insult you, simply present my opinions. Your drawing style is good, but I suggest you work on facial varieties. Your colouring skills really need an improvement though.
