Robin in COLORS by Shadowgrail Robin in COLORS by Shadowgrail
Okies I hope y'all likes . I managed to finish coloring the ROBIN design.
I really like how this one turned out.
I learned quite a few new things as I was figuring out how to color this one. and I hope in my next few upcoming pieces it can help me solidify my theories on it.

enjoy !

man i really like this robin... from the belt design to the cape.. i really love the cape. it reminds me of ken the eagle's cape from gachaman/g-force. but the pallette of colors you chose really make him look like he belongs alongside batman. probably one of the best artist adaptations i've seen of him.

thanks so much !
yeah the cape was influenced by both G-Force design and the fact that his namesake is of a bird.=D

I meant to comment on this last night; but I hate browsing DA on my gf's MAC, plus the colors on her LCD always look dull. Anyway...

I think you knocked it out of the park with the colors. Very simple, muted, yet vibrant. I love the way the compliment the pencil linework. All in all it's a great style!

Wow, that's a pretty big tutor! Sean's coloring is exceptional and you are definitely achieving that effect of muted yet colorful images. Very nicely done.

This looks like a Robin worthy to be the Bat's protoge! Nicely done. :)

The proportions are still pretty funky, but that's my only complaint.

The design's much more solid [except maybe the feathery bits, which remind a bit much of that cartoon whose name I can't recall...] than the one in Teen Titans Year 1.

Scaly underwear?! UGH!

This would go well next to Steve Huge's Batman, I think.

Love these colours.

The colours totally change the piece. This is very cool.

Thanks ! I wanted to keep the majority of the focus solely on Robin. and to a lesser extent his form/action.
But he IS after all a creature of the night.

I was really worried that i was being over-analitical of the level of detail but I think I held back just enough.
Thanks much for the feedback !
