YOUNG JUSTICE: Tim Drake by philbourassa YOUNG JUSTICE: Tim Drake by philbourassa
Season two Robin, Tim Drake! The only thing more fun than designing a character like Robin for a DC cartoon is designing Robin for a DC cartoon twice! I had a lot of fun drawing this guy... at least as much fun as I could possibly have under crushing deadlines... heh. I know Tim is a fan favorite so I hope those of you who love the character approve of this take, I did the best I could.

*heavy breathing* I'm a new fan, and I don't know much. But tell me yes or correct me- Bruce Wayne's parents were killed by the joker when he was 8 before he became the joker. The joker became the joker by falling into a pit of... radioactive waste? Bruce became the Batman in order to hunt down the joker and take revenge for his parent's murders. Alfred the butler took care of him in the Wayne mansion, right? He took on Dick Grayson as his partner/apprentice after some evil guys took out his parents the "Flying Graysons" in a thing where they were performing their usual act at the circus as the trapeze artists, without the safety of a net? Dick assumed the title of Robin and fought crime next to Batman until he took on the role of Nightwing-- why? And I know who Damasen is...! I saw the movie... and I know he becomes the new Robin- I do not get that. Why did Robin-Dick assume the Title of Nightwing? And has Batman had many partners/apprentices? Was there ever a.... Batgirl? Who the heck is she? and why did Robin/Dick ever change his name to Nightwing? HELP ME PLEASE I AM SO CONFUSED. Please comment on my profile or something  
please please please :screaming:

Depends on what version of Batman's origin you look at; that origin comes from the Tim Burton movie from 1989 starring Micheal Keaton and Jack Nickelson; Dick became Nightwing after believing that he was old enough to leave Batman's Tutelage and yes, there was a few Bat-Girls; the most notable one being Barbra Gordon, who was put out of the role when Joker shot and paralyzed her.

No problem; the way that Batman's parents died varies from version to version, the one that you mentioned was in the Tim Burton movie.

I love that his and Dick's designs bear some similarities but at the same time they're quite distinct from one another. I love your style; it fits YJ so well.

I never truly quite understand why the character of Robin keeps changing. Someone tell me pls? I love DC comics, I'm out of the three nerds in my class who even know what a DC comic character is between the difference of others, I'm the only one who even owns DC comics. I never learned why Robin keeps changing tho. Have I not paid close enough attention?

The first Robin is Dick Grayson, who after turned into Nightwing.
The second one is Jason Todd, who died but was resurrected by Ra's al Ghul and turned into the new Red Hood.
The third Robin is the one of this artwork, Tim Drake. The fourth Robin is Stephanie Brown, being before Spoiler. She was also Tim Drake's girlfriend. She took the role of Robin because Tim's secret identity was discovered by his father. After some time she assumes the identity of the fifth Batgirl, and Tim assumes again the identity of Robin. After the Bruce Wayne's death in the Final Crisis comics, he turns into Red Robin.
The last Robin is Damian Wayne, who turns into the Robin of Nightwing when he assumes the identity of Batman (after the Bruce Wayne's death).

I like it. It just screams little Timmy. The first thing I thought of when I saw the design was his Red Robin uniform. It's like his outfit is foreshadowing his transition into the role or the Bat Family's second bird (third if you count the title of Robin but that title is that of a student's so doesn't really count in my eyes).

5th.  Dick, Jason, Tim, Stephanie, Damian.  Going by the new comics anyways, there were I think 2 more Robin's before but they got edited out somehow and I don't know much about them.

So, as a character designer, do you have to design and color the character yourself? Do you get any help in that regard?

DC should have hired you to redesign all of the Nu52 costumes instead of what we ended up with..... Your designs harken to the classic, but still update, and seem functional but with an elegance...

Awesome take on the costume, i've always felt the robin costume was to bright, the incorporation give it a nice stealth feel while maintaining the rich red color icon to the suit.

I like the design but it doesnt look as strudy as Dick's were it was clearly padded and armoured this seems like it very free flowing but doesnt have much protection. None the less I still love how youve distinguished the two versions, did you also design the costume that we briefly saw for Jason?

Cool, I really liked what we got to see of it and how you managed to distingish it from both Tim's and Dick's, it looked like a clear middle between the two. If you ever design Damian do you think you would stick to the same kind of design or go in a different direction? :)

Will you ever draw Jason Todd? Now that it was revealed Jason was before Tim in this series, I was just curious if he had a reference.

Jason Todd came out in the latest Young Justice episode. He came out as a hologram statue,as well as, all the other fallen heroes.

Haha I already knew that, I was just wondering if they there was a reference sheet for him. I'm curious about his death in this series as well. I don't recall them mentioning the Joker when they mentioned Jason's death.
