It is actually heavily inspired by "Gaslight"... That and the fact that I've seen half a dozen Steampunk batmen, some of them very good, but none of them without a rubber cowl. I wanted to do leather. Something more period appropriate.
The cowl is actually inspired by WW2 Cap...
I like it alot. Good choice of colour. Love the Inverness/Coachman style cape. I like the leather cowl but I'm not too keen on the exposed ears, maybe some fabric over them and the nape of the neck down under the cape would look better (well to me at least).
Great work all round though!
