Hi.
Could anyone help me?
Let's starts from the begining.
There's an image of Batman in straight, standing pose from "Hush - the end" comic book. And if you 'cut out' it right from the comic book it looks like this:
http://www.batcave.stopklatka.pl/grafa/inne/batman1024b.jpg
As we see it has this yellow light on it.

But then I saw a T-shirt with Batman with this same image/position but in 'clean version' :| ...
http://www.superherostuff.com/characters/Batman/images/batman_t_shirt_standing_2.jpg
So my questions are:
Where they have got this 'clean versions' from ? Does Jim Lee draw a special version of this image specially for t-shirts, posters, etc. ?

I'm searching for this image for a month, could anyone help me and tell me where can I find this 'clean version' of this image ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Im sure they have stock art at DC that has a neutral background. I dont think it is commercially available, but I do not know for sure. Have you looked for some Peel & Stick Wall & Dcor Accents? They would be clean easy to scan images. I have a few, but none of them are that one.

I have seen that image in a clean shot, but can't remember where.. it might have been from the comic itself. Warlord from CIOTDK is the one who did the wallpaper, he uses Comic scans, it has to be somewhere...

Hmmm..I'm not shure if I understand you well, but actually the problem is that in comic there's - not a clean version, check it:


It has this yellow light, also the cape/cloak is cuted on bottom-left

A stock image is one that is used by various companies to promote their own Product. The image is given to them by DC.

The problem with this image, I don't believe it is stock. I think the maker of the Tshirt redid the image.

How big does the image need to be? Can you use the image from the shirt?

After you wrote this I think it's a stock image, because I've found a picture from some "comic convention" (?) end there's a... (I don't know how to say it in english) ..."paper sculpture"(?) with this same image, so I think this 'clean version' it's in some kind a 'official' and popular.


Also, I've tried to remove this yellow light in photoshop - and I couldn't achive acceptable effect sad

This image from t-shirt it's to small, a think the good size it's at least the "wallpeper size" - let's say a 768px high ?

The yellow lighting seen in the comic book was possibly done with computer effects on top of the original, fully inked art. That original art was reserved and used for promotional/commercial imagery. Whether or not they have this art available to the public is difficult to know.

This reminds me of Neal Adams' art from Batman #251 circa 1973. The illustration seen in the actual comic has Batman running with no Utility Belt (The Joker took it), but it's a great piece that DC wanted to use for future projects. So a redone version was created that includes the Utility Belt. Although, some still don't have the belt, as seen on the Jigsaw Puzzle canister.

Carmine Infantino's portrait of Batman & Robin was also used for future cover art and merchandise. I'm actually not sure what it was originally created for.

I totally agree with the above statement.

The original "inked page" would have been kept pure & they would use that later for products. I've seen a few Jim Lee graphics used on different items.
