Batman will hate my Nose! and I do too

Ususally human beings need their nose to breathe or to smell, Iam one of those poor guys that cant do neither. Both of my noseholes are closed, because both holes are to tight to my nosebone, plus my nosebone is lean. That means I cannot breathe at day nor at night, causing insomnia, the feeling of being totally exhausted wehn I wake up in the morning, a dry mouth, problems with my lounges and much more, I decided to visit my doctor.
After checking my nose and my lounges, I recieved some bad news. He told me that my nose has to be operated so that Ill hopefully will be able to breathe properly. Ill have to stay for 2 or 3 days in Hospital, and after that I wont be able to work for the next 3 weeks. That was really the worst news he had for me, because a few weeks ago I got in touch with DC/Vertigo editor Wil Dennis ( Hellblazer, DMZ...). He sent me a Batman script to work on, and now that Im on schoolbreak, i thought it would be the best time to work on those pages. I feel totally screwed and it really messed up my day, but I wont let that get me down, Ill do the Batman pages, even if that causes nosebleeding, headache or even death!
Nothing can stop me from working on those Pages :D

However here is some art which I had on my computer and thought I should share with you guys. the first two pages are Wolverine Pages from a script from a friend of mine. I didnt finish them because I moved out of my appartment in October 06 and after that I had to do a lot of stuff for school, plus going to work can be really really hard!
This was the first step for the Punisher Pin up Ive posted some days earlier. It was a lot of fun to draw. As you can see I did the BG with a ruler, but when I light boxed the pic I didnt. That was because, when I work with a ruler on my BGs they always look made up and kind of stiff, so right now I use the ruler only as a orientation tool.

this is a darkened version of the inks. I tried to make the brushlines disappear, it looks cleaner now, but in some way sterile too, ot sure if thats a good thing though.
This was one of my first attempts with digital colouring. I had a lot of fund oing it but im not sure if it looks good. Im partially colourblind, so if there any mistakes then please domt be too mad at me. Below you can see the finished version with some type and the logo, I did just for fun.

Hey Sedat,

love looking at your pages, I often not check my hotmail account for weeks and when i did this time i got ahold of your link to this blog from the travis group....anyways...glad i checked
only "crit" comment i can think of is: "watch the heavy blacks, sometimes less is more...;)"
overall tho, i see a TON of evolving so i guess just keep having fun with it, more so once they start paying you big checks for it :P

take care,
