James Gordon

Post-Crisis

After Crisis on Infinite Earths, James Gordon was re-introduced into the Batman word during Frank Miller’s run on Batman entitled “ Batman: Year One.” James Gordon was a Special Forces veteran with hand-to-hand combat skills. He was also trained with all police weapons and marksmanship. Gordon was at the top of his league in Chicago.

He and his pregnant wife Barbara moved from Chicago to Gotham City. Jim was transferred to the corrupted Gotham City Police Department. Before meeting the Batman, Jim was involved in "The Peter-Pan Killer" case. The case revolved around a killer who would abduct children from their beds and murder them. When Gordon found out the chief suspect was released from prison, he followed the suspect in the hopes of preventing another murder.

Deadline Monday 19th January, 2015

@mrsketchtastic: I am probably sounding like a broken record but that's the way it goes. Any chance you can extend the deadline by a few days for us? 10 days is just a bit under what some can do, and again, many artists on the 'Vine have jobs and school so time is usually limited for most. If not, thanks for considering.

I'm kinda surprised no one else has submitted any artwork yet... Anyway, here's my submission. I'm going to be going back to working from reference for a while. For this one I used a pic I found of Gary Oldman from The Dark Knight. I planned on adding a background but, eh.

@battle_forum_junkie nice work. I like your use of lights and darks here.

Thanks, man. It took me a bit longer than I had hoped to get the values down, but I'm pretty satisfied with it.

Did him from memory of how he looked in that 2 part The Dark Knight Returns cartoon. Hopefully it's not too late.
