    Batman Returns Concept Drawing Original Art Group of 2 (Warner Brothers, c. 1992). Here are two stunning original concept drawings for the Tim Burton-directed Batman Returns featuring none other than the caped crusader himself. Rendered expertly in mixed media by the legendary production artist Nikita Knatz, these bold images pop right off the page, showcasing dramatic lighting concepts and dynamic poses. Knatz's unique approach sets these images apart from typical concept drawings, and the first of these renderings is on a sheet of 16.5" x 11" translucent tracing vellum. The other piece is on a 17" x 11" sheet of celluloid, taped to a sheet of bond paper of the same size containing a photocopy image of the top sheet. Batman is featured large and centered in these magnificent pieces, and he measures 9.75" tall and 9.25" tall respectively. The art shows minor handling and edge wear, and the vellum sheet contains pinholes in the lower corners. The condition of both pieces is Very Good.
