Gallery Spotlight: Street PatrolApril 4, 2013
When we hear Cosplay, we mostly think of posed shots, either with a smiling character on a convention floor, or in beautifully staged scenes like the previously featured pair: Shadow of the Bat and of Catwoman vs Azrael inspired by the Knightfall / Knightquest era comics.
That’s why I was so excited to have a few pieces like Batman: Street Patrol which doesn’t seem posed or contrived at all.
Indeed, it looks like a random person spotted Batman one night and hastily took the best picture they could. But for all the appearance of spontaneity, there is quite a lot of craft in this composition. Note how just enough definition on the cape and ears and just enough reflection on the cowl to say ‘Batman.”
