Dark Knight by TXcrew Dark Knight by TXcrew
"I love Frank Miller's 'Dark Knight Returns'. It was one of the biggest influences on my artistic growth, along with a LOT of Bill Sienkiewicz and Mike Mignola. This piece is a pin-up I did for the Lille Convention I'm attending this fall. They requested a Batman illustration to use as an exclusive print for the show.
I wanted to evoke Lynn Varley's washed-out palette so I cranked down the saturation wherever possible - an exception being Robin's costume. I think brighter colours illustrate her enthusiasm against Batman's gray grumpiness.

Also, Carrie Kelley is the coolest Robin ever."

How is Carrie the coolest Robin ever? In my mind it's Dick.

1. Because he was the first Robin.
2. He became the badass hero Nightwing after he was Robin.
3. He took it opon himself to wear the cape when Bruce died.
4. His backround story is really cool. I mean, come on. He was in the circus for God's sake.
5. He changed the superhero era by becoming the first ever Robin.
6. He's the only Robin to ever make it on the big screen/T.V.
7. He started the whole 'Scaly underwear' joke.
8. He was one of the founding members of the Teen Titans.

And I'm just gonna stop there because thats all I can think of right on the spot for now without Googleing anything. Also, I was just giveing my opinon so please, don't be hating.

Wonderful!

Quick questions, what size of paper did you use in Photoshop for this one?

I'm trying to find the right size of paper, my drawings (lines) always look skinny or fat, so I'm trying to find the best way to draw.

Wonderful drawing man, I love the fact that you didn't sexualize Robin in this, a lot of people on this site tend to ignore the father/daughter relation ship she has with Bruce and make her some bimbo.

I agree with you about Carrie.

Robin should have always been a girl.

Old Doc Wertham would shit himself.
