Holy Birthday Batman!

2014 is the 75th Anniversary of Batman's first appearance in Detective Comics #27, but more specifically March 30, 1937 is the date of publication of Detective Comics #27 as listed by the Library of Congress Copyright Office's Catalog of Copyright Entries for Periodicals. Which makes today Batman's 75th birthday!

To celebrate, I decided to do a quick sketch of the grim and gritty Batman from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns...

It was fun to play around with a brush pen and work in a looser style than I normally use.

--UPDATED 01/04/14--

After I posted my drawing on Twitter and @JSZorg tweeted me saying "draw Carrie now! #THEDARKSHINNRETUNRS", I decided that the female Robin from The Dark Knight Returns, Carrie Kelley would work well in contrast to the bulky form of Batman, so added her in to the image...
