Insane in the Bane Brain.
If you haven't heard yet, Bane is going to be played by Tom Hardy in the next Batman film along with Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. I was kind of shocked that out of all the great villains Batman has they went with Bane. Not really well known to non-comic fans. He seemed to be just another bad 90's marketing gimmick. I really hope Nolan plays up the criminal genius part and doesn't make him a hulking mindless brute like in Batman & Robin. This started as a doodle with a ball point pen. I was waiting for a friend to pick me up and I started playing with markers then colored pencils then paint an hour later I wound up with this. I don't think I've ever drawn him before. I like it. It kind of feels like I channeled my inner Simon Bisley.
