BATMAN BEGINS Concept Art by Jock

One of the artists that helped give Batman Begins it's dark and moody look is concept artist Jock.

Jock is the pseudonym of award winning British comics artist Mark Simpson, best known for his work with writer Andy Diggle on Vertigo's The Losers and 2000AD. He's contributed concept art to films like Battleship (2012), Dredd (2012) and G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013). 

Jock shared some of his work on his site and I thought I'd share some of them.

Wikipedia Synopsis:
Batman Begins is a 2005 British–American superhero film based on the fictional DC Comics character Batman, directed by Christopher Nolan. It stars Christian Bale as Batman along with Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes, Cillian Murphy, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman. The film reboots the Batman film series, telling the origin story of the character from Bruce Wayne's initial fear of bats, the death of his parents, his journey to become Batman, and his fight against Ra's al Ghul's plot to destroy Gotham City. It draws inspiration from classic comic book storylines such as The Man Who Falls, Batman: Year One, and Batman: The Long Halloween.

  1. Repairing Small Cracks in concrete
    Floors: Determine the Damage. If a hairline crack in concrete has turned into a large crack,
    it will need to be cleaned out before the patching and repairing process.
    Say we are laying out a simple home 30' x 45'; if the last dimension was forty
    feet instead of forty-five then the cross corner measurement would be fifty feet.
