What started out as a classroom doodle grew into something a little bit bigger. The greatest challenge was the skin - Bane’s range of expressions is hard to convey because half his face is covered by a mask, so the intensity and physicality has to be represented in texture. On top of trying to get the batshit (hah, see what I did there) insane glint in his eyes, I tried to bring that out through the scars criss-crossing his head.
