Batman - for Colorado by EternaLegend Batman - for Colorado by EternaLegend
• Painter XI/Wacom tablet (one layer painting)


An artwork for those who were tragically killed, harmed or scarred at the Batman premiere in Colorado.

A movie is a place where you can sit back, relax and to enjoy seeing something out of this world while having a good time with either friends or family. The fact that it has happened in a cinema has honestly shaken me.
Movie theatres are suppose to represent "great art", from the visions and works of the director, actors, editors, performers, special effects team, camera operator, stunt coordinators and talented countless others where the audience can forget about reality for a certain amount of time to explore vast new fantasy worlds and to create personal connections with characters, magic and wonder, and much more within. For someone to walk in and open fire at innocent lives enjoying a film that many have been fans of for many years defies comprehension. It is absolutely shattering, and literally shocking.

I've made this for the Aurora community that has been torn apart by this event. It's not much… I know.
But my prayers and condolences go out to everyone who has been affected by this.

Kindly reblog on tumblr.

This artwork has also been featured in an's article.…

I agree with you, I was simply appalled by what had happened. I love Batman and always have ever since I was a kid. What that manac did was fucked up and should rot in jail or a gas chamber(Thought it would be nice if they brought the guillotine or the hangman's rope back), plus it was so disrespectful that he called himself the joker after the late Heath Ledger's.

So for the rambling I apologize but its a very gorgeous piece!:D

I chose a day during the week I saw the report on the news to wear a Batman tee shirt to honor the people who were affected.  I am also a long time Batman fan.

This piece is very beautiful, and I think the reason behind it is also beautiful. I work as a co-editor for a Batman fan website Caped Crusades and we are trying to start up a fanart of the week post. We would love to use your painting in for that post. We would of course give you full credit as the artist, with either your deviantart username or your full name as you choose. let me know what you think.

Thank you! And I don't mind the feature at all (deviantArt name please) :)

If you don't mind I really want to quote you in my post about your piece for Colorado. It's a moving sentiment and an equally moving piece and I think it will help people understand why I chose your painting for a post.

I saw this as I was going through a horrible divorce and it reminded my that the only thing that was important was my son and daughter. We have finally moved into our new home and their mother has moved on with her new boyfriend. My son and daughter (ages 6 and 9) have always seen this on my wallpaper and realize it means a lot to me to remind me that we should enjoy every moment, love each other daily and never take a moment for granted. I would love to buy a very high quality canvas print of this and frame it in our den-library. Can I buy a canvas print anywhere. I'm happy to donate money to your favorite charity or just buy it from you. I can't figure out how to add this to the cart and buy it. Please let me know.

Thanks, Jack.

Hello there, I'm very sorry for the late reply.

I was selling this as a print previously, but I ran into a copyright issue with DC Comics and had to have it removed. I can no longer sell it as prints due to copyright infringement.
You are more than welcome to download the image and print it out yourself, but there will no longer be high-quality prints of this artwork, sorry.
