Happy Halloween! Gotham Gears WIP by ChasingArtwork Happy Halloween! Gotham Gears WIP by ChasingArtwork
I really really tried to get this done for Halloween, but I couldn't make it :( and at about 4am last night I realized his look was heading in the wrong direction. I need to make him lankier, change the stance, less bulky torso, there will be stich-esq designs added, and etc.

So heres my first attempt at the Scarecrow Gotham Gear, its got a lot wrong, and needs a fair amount of work before it looks like a proper Scarecorw Mech, but I thought I would share the HORROR that is my half finished work file. :) all the parts strewn around him have been torn from other gotham gears

Give me a couple days, I'll get my head back on straight and release the real Scarecrow Gotham Gear. Hope you cats have a happy Halloween!

So as I have been unable to find a finished version in your gallery I'll assume this was never finished and you're still accepting input! First off let me say that your work is excellent and this "gear" is masterfully crafted. However, like you said yourself, I think its going in the wrong direction. Lets start with what makes the Scarecrow the Scarecrow...chemistry and fear. Even in Batman: The Animated Series, Jonathan Crane used chemicals and toxins to incite fear in his victims. From what I see in the current iteration of your Scarecrow you may have been going for a spider theme, but the Gear ended up more as a giant tank (worked for Bane Gear) and strayed very far from what the Scarecrow emulates.

There are two ways I can see this being very successful if we're talking totally new direction: Tall and spindly, or hunched menacing. The chemical/toxic element of Scarecrow's character could be a bigger part, but accentuated with your style. Perhaps belching clouds of toxic fumes or riddled with long, thin, sharp objects used for administering his fear inducing serums. Large glowing eyes (yellow/orange?) and a menagerie of poison filled tubes (you could make those green or sickly orange) could be a fitting addition to this Gear as well. Keep the brown scheme though, that works very well and could make other colors become very intense. There are also a few elements in the Joker Gear that could work very well on Scarecrow such as tattered cloth and teeth (a hood would be a good call). Lastly, I think a scythe is an great prop for the Gear to be holding or have holstered on his back.

So again, assuming you haven't finished the piece, good luck with completion!

Have you ever thought of doing this kind of stuff with creepypastas?

I realize im probably quite late on this comment, but in case you've sidelined this drawing, ill trow in my thoughts :)

With the scarecrow being all about hallucinogenics, it would be interesting if he was a fairly small, nonthreatening frame, that after deploying his toxins, would 'bulk up' in a way that may not look too threatening normally, but would be terrifying under the effects of his fear toxins. Thus allowing him to be strong without relying on combat abilities (Like an animal puffing itself up to look bigger). As its all technology it might be a signal rather than gas that transmits a virus that alters the perception of others. This could incorporate some form of antenna or transmitter into his design.

Anyhow, ive been loving the stuff.

I'm sorry, but who's the guy in the middle?

Have you ever watched 13 Ghosts? If you wire-frame The Juggernaut and add billious green smoke with tattered half face grin, walah you've got Scarecrow. P.S : Don't forget the top hat.
