BATMAN vs POISON IVY | Street Art Painting Process


Hey there, my name is Daniel and in this
video I’m going to show you the process of my recent street painting of Batman
versus Poison Ivy, so let’s get right into it! So, a friend of mine asked me to
do a painting together and we decided to draw something from DC Comics. I painted Batman on the right and she painted Poison Ivy on the left. For me it all
started with this sketch I did on paper and turned into this digitally to serve
as a base for my painting. I still somewhat like it better than the final
result but whatever. We started in her garage and laid down the basic sketch. Right
here we are in our hometown and did a live painting of it and threw around some color – at
least she did – and I started with a black and white like I do most of the time. I
think black fits Batman very well as a character and a motif basically and it
automatically gives it this comic book feel because a lot of comic book art
uses a lot of black color. By the way, if you like superheroes and drawing and

the bell notification on the right, so you don’t miss any future videos of mine. Colorwise the general idea was to use this color palette. Obviously the red tones
are mostly in Poison Ivy’s hair and the turquoise tones are in the leafs
around her. My Batman uses mostly black and dark grey tones, but I tried to pick
up the turquoise color in his cape, you will see soon how I’ll try to do that. Apart
from that I just used the yellow tone for the bat symbol and a skin tone
obviously like my friend on the left did too. And right here I’m outlining the bat
symbol in this yellow tone like it is in the modern comics where it’s just a
black bat symbol with a yellow outline – looks pretty neat to be honest. Here I’m
trying to fill in the cape with a dark tone. It’s obviously a bit too dark for
my taste.In a few seconds I’ll try to brighten it up again with a brighter
turquoise tone. By the way generally the lighting situation is a normal light
from the left and a very bright light from the right. Zhat’s why a lot of
places on the Batman are left white to symbolize or to show that there’s a very
bright light from the right – a back light or side light in this case. Right here I’m
filling in the torso with a dark greyish color and now I’m trying to brighten up
with a brighter turquoise the cape. Right here we’re back in her garage because I
didn’t really finish the painting in time and wasn’t really that happy with it, especially with the right side. That’s why right here I’m painting it, overpainting it with white and trying to do it again in a better way
well I’m not really happy with the end result… but I tried my best!
What I also did here is add in a few more details and shaded the mouth part
and his skin and just a few minor touch-ups here and there. And that’s
about it for this painting! That’s what it looks like. If you like this share it on
social media and also make sure to watch my Joker street painting right here!
Thanks for watching and see you next time!
