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).
