Remember how I've mentioned the difficulty I used to have in drawing
cityscapes where all the buildings didn't seem to be the same height?

Heck, even a building with the same amount of stories can have a different height per story.

Egads!

I think I see a fairly simple way to "fix" this though.

It's kind of weird to see Batman swinging against a blue sky background.

Unless this comic is titled : "A Dark Knight finds love in Paris"

 

I just don't get how anyone can see  Gotham City this way.

It looks like a miniature city, look at his right foot, it's almost like his foot is on that building.
