Henrik Sahlstrom Created These Batman Villain Portraits

Illustrator and Gotham fan Henrik Sahlstrom is behind these noir-style Batman villain portraits. These dark artworks really romanticize these Gotham evil-doers in a way that will likely please fans of the Batman films (and comics).

Sahlstrom’s illustrations include depictions of The Joker, Catwoman and The Riddler. He also portrays Batman as a noir-style anti-hero, with red goggles covering his eyes. Batman characters have been portrayed in a number of different lights, but this particular style is extremely eye-catching. Sahlstrom makes these villainous characters look just like old school Hollywood film stars.

These dark artworks are done mostly in shades of white, black and gray, though they do have the occasional hint of red or blue as well. Sahlstrom’s take on these classic bad guys are definitely worth a second look.
