Here's the full version of [link]

Crime Alley from Arkham City. Complemented game moment.

Maybe it's unnecessary, but I decided to finish all six sketches to the end.

Why does it rain? When I imagined this scene, there was rain. But I think it's a good conveys the state of their souls at this moment. After all, Batman doesn't cry.

At first, hand-painted rain, but then I imagine how many I should "scribbles" with stylus ... so I did some "rain" brushes. And generally, to make this work, learned a lot. But still, in half a year find mistakes here, I guess. Quickly drew the third and fourth frames. The second reworked twice. And with last worked the longest.

I really like this piece, but I feel it might be even stronger without the captions, just letting the images speak for themselves—I would favorite the heck out of that.

How does it feel Wayne? To stand on the very stones that ran with your parents' blood. Do you feel sad? Full of rage? Or does that outfit help bury your feelings? Hiding your true self. Oh, you are a truly extraordinary specimen.

I look forward to breaking you.

I agree, but in case you still feel the need to read what it says:
"It ends where it began. H. Strange.

Strange (personal note: I can practically FEEL a growl alongside that one word). I already turned to leave, throwing a cloak of indifference, not to succumb to... What?..

Stopped.

What makes us human? A good... correct. I will not give in to these tricks. But remember and grieve for my parents. In respect for the memory of them, enough just express condolences. Say to myself - yes, I remember you, you were dear to me. Just.

This is not a broken spirit. This is humaneness.

Stooping, squatting on one leg, I could not see who is behind me. Behind something clicked. Two heels. Barely audible. I have not seen, but understand who it is. Only one person can so softly landing from great heights. In this case, to be in shoes with heels.

I asked myself, knowing the answer - why is she here? Do not get up, do not look back. Although I did not need it...

I heard how she came.

Felt her hand on my shoulder.

Rain rustled around.

I do not need it... But I feel... how pleasant it is for the soul... that there is someone who understands you.

Sit down and just be close...

without words..."

on a side note, I can see Selina coming to the manor or the cave (take your pick) later that night/week/whatever and telling Bruce that his parents would be proud of the man he had become; of course, Bruce would deny it, either by saying something like "Bruce Wayne died that night: Batman's all I am anymore", or stating that some of the things he does on a daily basis goes against his father's wishes ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkuD0I… ), but Selina would set him straight either way

Knowing Selina she would. She would tell him he's looking at everything he has done all wrong. Yes there will be pain and things may go bad, but in the end they will return to good. He has inspired so many to fight back against the dark, the crime, the evil of the city. He is only a human, a man, but he's a man who stood up against all that threatened to destroy their home. Selina would know, he encouraged her to put on her suit, albeit for different reasons, their paths have started to blend and become one. There are really only two people who really know Bruce, and that's Alfred and Selina. She wouldn't stand for his brooding for to long and knock some sense into him, maybe even literally!

(nods) couldn't have said any better, though in point of fact, there ARE a few things that MIGHT back up a tiny bit of Bruce's logic; 1) "Do not be frivolous with this wealth (that you will inherit): please, do not waste it all on fast cars, and outrageous clothes, and the pursuit of a destructive lifestyle..." let's see: the Bat-Mobile, the Bat-suit(s), and, some might say, the lifestyle of, well, Batman; 2) "My deepest regret is (that) I will not see you grow into the GOOD man I know you WILL become..." how many people do you know fail to recognize that vigilantism is still breaking the law in some regard?

now, I'll never deny that these arguments have SOME merit to them, or the fact that Bruce Wayne himself has some knowledge of said logic; HOWEVER, that does NOT mean that I don't see the other side of the coin; 1) "Invest in Gotham: treat it's people like family, watch over them, and use this money to safeguard them from forces beyond their control" by day, Bruce Wayne helps the business world in matters both trivial and life threatening, and by night, Batman protects upper class-men and the common-folk alike; 2) "...and finally, my son: I ask that you never abandon this city to fate; we have lived through dark days, and no doubt there are more to come, but it is the GOOD and GREAT men that stand up for Gotham when others turn and run" hmm, refusing to accept defeat and constantly standing up for what's right: why does that sound so familiar? *cough*Batman*cough*

Selina no doubt knows that no man is perfect, not even Batman, but Bruce Wayne has dedicated his entire life to defending a city that so many others have given up on: if that doesn't deserve the approval of one's parents, I don't know what does...

Well Bruce knew if his parents knew what he was doing as batman, they would agree and disagree with it. In the end he doesn't care, he just knows it has to be done, it needs to be done. It's all he knows and has left. Despite what he does and tries to accomplish, to the point of perfectionism, he trained his mind and body to it, he knows he's not perfect, he's made mistakes, but he continues to push himself and punish himself, every night. He say he has no limitations and no boundaries, but he is just a man as well. And this what bruce's parents installed in him, and though they may not have agreed, they would have been proud, Alfred is proof of that. And Selina would be to, after all, it's that strict dedication, unbreakable commitment, and unfathomable will that attracts her to him, it because of that, she finds him irresistible He is also mysterious which, she wants to know about. she even said that her business is secrets. Why else does she call him tall, dark, brooding and handsome? Selina was created to be bruce's adversary, but also his equal. The bat and the cat's game is harmless, even friendly, where as the joker and batmans game is sll too serious. I agree with an author of the batman and psychology book, he said when creating Selina. "Bob kane and Billl Finger knew what they were doing."

nicely done; Bruce/Batman wasn't wrong back during "Appointment in Crime Alley" (episode of the 1992 animated series) when he implied that preserving what was once Park Row wasn't without it's merit, you know (Leslie Thompkins: Good people used to live here; Batman: Good people STILL live in Crime Alley.)

p.s. a bit off-topic, but I thought you should know that the bottom link in descripiton doesn't work anymore

Oh, wow. I'd actually seen this before, on the internet, and thought it was a shot from one of the actual comics. You are truly amazing at illustrating these characters, even to the point of creating their stories in comic-format. Have you ever considered sending these in to DC?

Yes I have this track, It's from Batman Begins, The original end credits and it does sound rather sad and heart breaking, but at the end hopeful and i feel it would fit he mood and capture what is batman perfectly.
