BATMAN MOVIE art deco by rodolforever BATMAN MOVIE art deco by rodolforever
A new poster on the series of BATMAN movies I am designing in ART DECO style

BATMAN (1989) itīs my personal favorite movie of the old franchise , it`s also the First film I ever saw on theathers, andI think has a very unique style very different from the rest.

I used some dark and grittier tones for this poster, and some golden to highlight some features.

Like I said on you Superman piece, this is amazing stuff. The style here really matches the movie - I almost expect to hear Danny Elfman's score, looking at this.

That art is incredibly awesome, but it also has one major issue: because the link is broken, I can't throw my money at it.

Sorry, this just reminded me of Batman: TAS in the most delightful ways. Moreover, it links perfectly with the 1989 film.

Glad I picked up a print of this when I had the chance. It fits the dark feel of the Burton movie perfectly. Outstanding job!

You know, it's still my favourite Batman movie too, and a big part is the visual style--which is why I also like the earlier seasons of "Batman: The Animated Series" better before it became "The New Adventures of Batman and Robin" and the art style WAY changed. I also just like the feel of this movie--not as campy as the other '90s-ish Batman movies eventually became, but retaining _some_ sense of humour. The newer movies...they're cool, but there's such a thing as TOO dark, too gritty. A line between respecting the characters and taking them _too_ seriously. These are _superhero comic books_, people. Lighten up!
/rant mode. (And really, my rant is directed towards the trend for EVEYRTHING to become Dark and Edgy these days...)

Sorry about that. But seriously, awesome poster, and this is easily still my favourite Batman movie, too. :)

Oooh, I like the difference between the posters for the Nolan films and this one. The Nolan films were much cleaner and sharper, while this is more gritty and shadowy, which totally suits the movie. The crumbling, gothic-ish Gotham skyline in particular really makes a lot of difference. Excellent job!

There's an element to posters that doesn't get talked about very much; magic. You know? An image that gives you chills and makes you ache at the same time. Like the promo poster for the original Christopher Reeves Superman flick
[link] , or the same for Disney's Tarzan [link] . They've got something. Like it's the grandest, most epic thing there ever was, but it's only teasing us with the barest bit of it. Can't put your finger on it, which is why it's magic, I guess.

This has that, would be the point I'm making here.

WOW! thanks a lot, I`m flattered :) I really aprecieate the comment...And I GET Your point...there are some designs that just stuck into your mind I draw inspirations from the posters from SPIDERMAN [link] ,ROOCKETEER [link] , STARWARS [link] , BRAZIL [link] ...which are some of my favorites and I think are breathtaking. THANKS a lot :):)
