Batman Gets Knee Deep

I've always found drawing Batman very daunting.  The character has so many great variations in his design, you can go from the super stylized and Gothic to the realistic and utilitarian.  I think it has to do with the practical aspects of the costume (boots, glove, utility belt) verses the decorative aspects (ears and cape, yes nerds, I know the cape has some practical functions).  You can make the ears and cape so long and obtrusive it would inhibit the caped crusaders ability to fight crime effectively, but in some cases it just looks so damn cool.  Anyway, for me putting Batman in the sewer and having him face of against Killer Croc is a no brainer.  Alligators and sewers are comfortable and well tread territory for me.
