Batmobile Design Competition: WINNER!

Congratulations to Paul Denton for winning the Batmobile Design Competition!  Paul’s rendering, seen above, captures that “bad ass” feel of the Dark Knight: it’s moody, menacing, and full of drama.  The sketch technique is loose and intriguing, and the vehicle’s design is well-though out… It’s as if the car lurks in the shadows, stalking Batman’s prey.  The smoke emitting from the side exhaust, something that Denton had in his other two sketches, makes it almost seem like the Batmobile is smoking after a night of satisfactory Joker-murder.

It’s awesome, pure and simple.

Congrats to Paul, and THANK YOU to everyone who submitted!  It was an extremely tough decision, which took us right down to the final moments of the selection.  Thanks to Arvind from DrivenMavens for helping us select, and for Dwayne Vance, who is doing something a little special for our international entries (more on that in a later post).

    Dear CDF guys,

    Great… some of my favorite entries have got the mention.

    I’d appreciate it if you guys can upload comments on improvements and problems on the other entries that didn’t make the cut(On this website or on a personal note). Personally It’d be a great pointer for me to improve myself with small things like these…

    I must say, of all the contestants, Mahandar Singh’s entry is the one I’d most like to see go through it’s paces in a Batman movie. Dynamite!
