Back to tha drawing board...

Back to tha drawing board...

[ale]

First off thanks to everyone for their comments! You guys are the best fans a guy could ask for :)!

Well my new son is officially 3 days old and I no longer have an excuse for not working, lol! So today back to the grind. Warmed up with a little doodle of Bats and Robin in honor of Jim's upcoming new title. I love drawing Robin! As you may notice I tweaked the way I drew him from when I previously drew him in Batgirl. Kept the eye mask shape, but made the eye holes a bit smaller. Also I bulked up his padding a bit. As for Bats...Well, for me, Batman is a constant work in progress. He is my everest of sorts. Only recently have I found a way of drawing him that I'm comfortable with. I like to keep him bulky, and round-headed. The funny thing is as hard as it is for me to be satisfied with the way I draw him I still would like to someday draw the book, heh! Anyways just a warmup, hope ya guys dig, and thanks again!

Ale,

One of my favorite things about TDKR was the way Batman was depicted as "larger than life" in terms of size and the way Carrie Kelly was this tiny little acrobatic thing in comparison to the Dark Knight.

You've managed to grasp this wonderfully in your sketch, and I agree - Bats is cool when drawn big and bulky.

Keep it up, and congrats once again on yer baby boy!

So based on your statement, "I love drawing Robin!"...I guess that means once you're done with your stint on Batgirl, you'll be hunting for Scott McDaniel's job on Robin? Would make for a kind of dramatic irony...slowly making your ascent to drawing Batman, by apprenticing with his ward(s)...

Your Robin looks great Alé! I like the smaller mask and he just looks tight.

Something about Batman isn't working for me though. I don't know, maybe he's too big?

Definitely reminds me of Miller's Dark Knight Returns in the posing. Throw a lightning bolt in the back w/ some coloring and you're right there.

Always nice to see you draw the Dynamic Duo, Ale.

I was just wondering, are they using some of your Teen Titans artwork on the back of Post Cereal boxes for the promotion going on now? I was looking at the back of that Oreo cereal and couldn't help but notice the Robin looks a lot like yours in that style.

Sweet! I really like your take on Robin. You're keeping him grounded in the regular DC while giving him the cool animated Teen Titans feel.
