Bat-cowl ears, TEDDYBEAR OR BAT, why the BVS and JL cowls are wrong


I hate the new Batcowl! Intimidating Bats have long ears and I believe that long ears on the cowl are a trademark of the Batman design like the logo on the chest and the utility belt and the scalloped cowl! The new Batman-suit design is very boring and just because its a new variant its not better then the previous suits! The ears on the cowl look like ears from a Bear or from a Weasel, and as a fan of the original long ears its almost hurting my eyes to see it. All those wrinkles in the face are also over the top because the face impression is to static, to agressive. Attached some photos of Bats, big ears, big scallops. Comments wellcome!

Re: Bat-cowl ears, TEDDYBEAR OR BAT, why the BVS and JL cowls are wrong


Now as far as in real life bats that might be the case. I prefer the short ears myself. Batman is a man in a suit, meant to be intimidating, so its kind of whatever the man decided. Personally, i find the long ears difficult in doorways and cars. They look cool in some artwork but i was and am very excited to finally see a mainstream Batman that is the look i prefer.

I like both. I used to prefer the Keaton era long ears but short ears have definitely grown on me. I do however hate the shape of the Nolan era ears. They're shaped more like a dog's ears (looks like a pit bull and they are adorable, not menacing :wink ).

They all should be long. Anyone remember the Nightowl Cowl back in the day. Extra long ears and very menacing in my opinion.

As a fan of The Dark Knight Returns, I'm good with the shorter ears. I do however like the longer ears in some of the gothic style, and horror artwork.Cool thing about the Bat, we can all have our favorite version, and none of us are wrong. ;)

I just had someone return some stuff to me that had been missing since my divorce. In the boxes I found a lot of stuff including a nightowl cowl and a Dark Claw cowl. Talk about dredging up the past lol.

Curious as to what the nightowl cowl looked like, anyone have a pic? I've always preferred longer ears, but a medium length like the Nolan works, but I agree, I hated the shape of those ones.

Chris,

   I used my old Night Owl cowl to make this

Night Owl used to be a member here back around 99 thru 02, his name is Justin Mabre.
His was one of the first "fan made" cowls out there. He mostly does monsters http://www.nightowlpro.com/ I heard through a grapevine that he did another bat cowl sculpt but I never saw it.
