Judging by how the first pull came out, I'm sure the second will look amazing. Long Halloween and Dark Victory is what I envision Batman to be. You're cowl just made what I only dreamed of being possible.



You and me both man! When I was a little kid, I was reading the back of some comic book (Can't remember what it was), and it had a small picture of a Batman comic on it. It was a picture of Bane standing in a doorway, with all this light behind him, and Batman standing in front of him turned away from Bane.

  Up untill a litte while ago, I had no idea what comic that was from! Anyway, ever since I'd seen that image, I always envisioned Batman looking like he did in "Knightfall". Once I laid eyes on Tim Sale's work, it just all came together for me, and made sense. THAT was how Batman should look.

  Even Knightfall didn't come close for me after I read "The Long Halloween".

Re: Tim Sale Cowl: First Pull!


Nothing has. The thing with those two novels, especially TLH, is at the time, i had only known Batman from the 60s version and the films. So I didn't have a true graps of the character, and becuase nothing ever came to follow Batman and Robin, I began losing interest in the character.

Then I read TLH, and I realized what I saw on screen wasn't anything close to what Batman really was. TLH, and Sale's work, reconnnected me and really ignited as lifelong idolization of the Batman. Those two novels will always have a special place in my heart.

Re: Tim Sale Cowl: First Pull!


It's interesting how Tim sale seems to be the artist who predominantly features that nose. I don't remember seeing a cowl the has the flat front on the nose. I don't really count the begins nose because it's a thin flat part so it might as well just je a normal ridge. Yours is broad. It looks great!

Thanks! Yeah, I always wondered how the nose might look on a real mask. Hopefully this next pull will be much better. I've got resin sitting in the ears now. Got 2 more pours to do, then I'll pull this sucker out and see how it went!

I hope those two more pours come in a jiffy. I'm dying to see what the perfected finish product will look like with some lighting on it.

Me too! lol. I've got 3 pours in it total now. I'm gonna do 2 more I think. The thickness still isn't where I want it to be yet, but it's definitely getting there. The ears are SOLID resin now! It's soo weird but really really cool working with this resin. It literally goes from a liquid to a HARD black plastic in a minute and a half!

Re: Tim Sale Cowl: First Pull!


...did you do a skin of urethane RUBBER first? Urethane doesn't stick to cured urethane, and i have a feeling that if you are using the resin as a filler for the ears, it will weigh them down and make them flop around on you as well as add pressure to your neck. When do you want to have this done by?

Yeah, I did 2 pours of urethane before any resin went into the ears. The ears are only filled about 2/3 total. The rein seems pretty light actually, but I was also thinking that it might be too much. If it is, I'll try using foam next time. I'm hoping to have it pulled by tomorrow at this point.
