Nerd Rage by Harseik Nerd Rage by Harseik
Batman: "You're insane."

Nigma: "No! That would imply some mental illness or derangement! I suffer from neither."

TROLOLOL. Because being a neurotic sociopath with an obsessive compulsive disorder doesn't require a certificate or anything.

Gawsh I love him so much. >_o

So I gave into my urges and drew Nigma from Arkham City. Because he's awesome. And this simple sketch came out better than my last submission so I cranked out some colors and a crappy background. He gets so blatantly frustrated the more challenge rooms you complete - it's freakin' adorable. D<

I'm guessing Edward in the drawing is saying something along the lines of "BATMAN. Y U NO STOP CHEATING?"

PS: If you guys haven't heard the main theme for Arkham City yet, marvel at its tear-jerking glory: [link]

By the way, why is there a depressing lack of decent Riddler fanart around here? Crank em out, people!

Brilliant! I feel kind of sorry for the Riddler, it's almost like he WANTS to fail sometimes. It's hilarious when you beat him though, but still! lol

Bahaha, you might be onto something. The guy loves the attention, after all. Maybe he secretly enjoys the never ending battle. Doesn't change how much I looooove the little creep. <3

See, I go back into the games after the story mode only to hunt for the trophies and datapacks. Well, I do the other side stories but let's not get off topic. I've never fully completed the Riddler storyline in any of the games (i am pretty close in arkham asylum let me tell you i have 80%), but mark my words I will one day and I will see him ragequit completely! Just by the way he is hilarious (and just as magnificent in the other games) in Arkham Origins. On a side note, I'm quite sad that they've taken away the riddles in Arkham Origins. They were lots of fun and required you to have some knowledge about the Batman series and other characters and their backstories.

Also, the Arkham City soundtrack is flawless! The whole album is great :D

Poor dear looks like he's about to bust a eye vessel. He's got 99 problems and Batman is most of them.

I DO TOO. Nigma in AO had his moments, but I guess he wasn't as over-the-top as he was in AC so I didn't run to the computer to draw him. But now that you brought it up I really should!

He's so angry and nerdy and thinks he so awesome even though he probably couldn't do a proper pushup. I am not one to obnoxiously "fangirl" over people, but Nigma tends to bring it out of me.  I should totally redraw this when I get the chance. I drew his torso so looooong. xD

well i think you did perfect on the torso anatomyXD

I freakin love this picture=D

 

and yes, I perfectly understand the fangirling moments caused by himXD

I just love how he thinks he's better than everyone, then breaks down like a 5 year old when you solve his riddleXDDD

Arkham City has helped his underrated streak a bit, I think. :] He truly is the perfect package of evil, nerdiness, and quirkiness.

Okay, I totally know where you're coming from. I have Anime/manga roots so I can understand the hype... but it's crazy how out of hand it's gotten. Everything looking the same really kills my muse.

Thank you for stopping by, my man. <3

Everything looking all bishi or kawaii for no valid reason other than the fans (or fangirls) prefer it to the original kind of kills my mood when I go browsing for fanart. lol Same, this observation/criticism is coming from a long time anime fan. Several years ago, people tried to be more unique with it. Now I cringe a little when too much of the stereotypical big eyes, pointy chins, triangular noses, bishi-face, ect., show up in nearly everything.

Thank you for making an awesome piece of fanart of Arkhamverse Riddler. :thumbsup:
