YOUNG JUSTICE: Robin by philbourassa YOUNG JUSTICE: Robin by philbourassa
When producers Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman asked me to help them with the development of Young Justice, Robin was the first character I sat down to draw. Having just finished drawing all the iconic DC characters for Crisis on Two Earths, I was excited to be working on the younger heroes, particularly Robin because he tends to bring some much needed color and levity to the typically grim and bleak world of the Batman Mythos. I drew a couple concept sketches before arriving at this design, which incorporates general notes from both producers, as well as Mr. Vietti's main overall direction, to avoid the briefs on top of the tights look and to add visible seams and padding to the outfit to suggest more realism.
Robin is one of my absolute favorite characters in the show.

OMG!!!!!!! robin is my favorite character I love his design and his personality in the Show OMIGERD!!! this is so cool!!!!Kermityay Rlytear 
Now that I found out who designed the Robin in Young Justice, I would like to thank you. Cause like the previous comment, this is the best robin design so far. As well as my personal fav. (I'm also glad they told you to ditch the briefs :P it would've ruined him quite a bit)
This is by far the best Robin design ever conceived.

Cool though I wish they continued the series. Hate how good shows like these have to get taken out due to the networks stupidity

Fantastic!! I loved this show, it's art, and storytelling. Great work!
I absolutely loved the design for Robin in Young Justice and I think it looks very cool and modern. I'm really happy that you created it.
Well done!
