Gotham Animals: Robin/Tim Drake by ShadOBabe Gotham Animals: Robin/Tim Drake by ShadOBabe
The Heroes have arrived!!

Don't worry everyone. I know there are more Batman Rogues I need to turn into animals, and I WILL get to them eventually. But darn it, I REALLY wanted to get to the heroes so I could get closer to starting my spin-off series for the Justice League and the Avengers.

So anyway, here's the first hero in the Gotham Animal series, Tim Drake as Robin as a... you know.. a Robin. XD
I had to decide between whether I wanted to make Tim an American Robin (because, well, he is American) or a European Robin (because they are REALLY cute). I finally went with the American Robin... tweetsandtreefrogs.lutegrad.co…

And you know... I think he STILL turned out adorable. :meow: And since Tim is still a kid, I made sure to add the little black specks that adolescent robins have on their chests.
I'd like to eventually draw the hero animals in their civilian looks as well, but for now, we'll just stick with the "in-uniform" looks.

We're going to do this in order of age, so Batgirl is next!!
Hope you guys are enjoying the series so far!! Have a great day!!

In my personal opinion, Drake is the best Robin that I have seen in the Batman franchise, and it's because he may be even better than Batman. Even Ra's said how he can be considered a worthy heir to the League of Assassins. And did I mention he found out who the Dark Knight was at age 9 using self taught detective work?! He's a modern day Sherlock Holmes.

Yeah, Tim is THE Robin in my eyes.
But my favorite character of all the Robins is Dick.

He did get the ball rolling as the first Robin, but now is the solo vigilante of Bludhaven and named after a god of Krypton.

IF you were to do a Jason Todd/Red Hood one, I would think he's a wolf-tiger cross (obviously nicely blended) :) Just an idea...

I am torn between having my head explode because of the awesome, exploding into laughter because of the comedic image of a robin taking out a polar bear, and squeeing because of the cute.

"Holy cow, Batman" was always Burt Ward's signature reply to any remarkable event in the 1966 TV show.

No, worries though, Dick!! I won't draw you as a "Holy Cow" either. XDDD
