Robin (Damian Wayne)

Robin © DC Comics

This is the first time I have drawn Damian Wayne, aka Robin. I don't read the books but from looking at the previews and covers, he seems like a well adjusted, overall nice kid with terrific manners. Sort of a, dare I say, role model. Does that sum it up? ;)

Actually, he reminds me of a male Hit Girl. Not sure who came first but again, I don't read the books.

This was done in ink and Copic Markers on a 9" x 12" Canson Mi-Teintes board. I had to shoot this with my iPhone in order to get something close to the paper color. My scanner was way off with the subtle tan color board and I couldn't correct enough in Photoshop.

This is Post #1636

Yeah, well adjusted. Kind of kid that you want to mow your lawn and help with house projects! Nicely done Gene!

Great shot of Damian. I like how you gave him so much expression with so little line work. AND he still looks young!

Thanks Gary!

Thanks Shane!

Thanks Spazzy!

I have heard all good things about my take on the character mixed with how much people hate him. Wow.

Sorry for the late comment. I think you've done a great job of capturing the essence of Damian Wayne, which is to say spoiled, self-absorbed, mad at the world, and slightly constipated. ;)

(Note: I mean to say that your sketch is good, but the character...he's a spoiled little brat.)
