I need a Hero

Actually, I don't.

"Heroes" are just people like ourselves, only we get to see the awesome that they do, not the dirty nitty-gritty of their everything-else.
I can't remember who said it, but someone is quoted as saying the someone should never meet their heroes... and I think it's because they never live up to the ever-growing expectations their fans have of them.

I've been listening to The Heavy's "Short Change Hero", after seeing it used for the teaser video of Batman: Arkham City.. it's a song, and used really well with the footage, and helps bring home the idea that part of Gotham is really, really screwed, Batman or no Batman.

So here's some rough shaded work of a place that, while it needs a hero.. is no place for a hero to be.
..or Heroine.. because they kick just as much ass as heroes do.
