R is for RED ROBIN by Mista-M R is for RED ROBIN by Mista-M
I've set myself a challenge to redesign the DC characters. I mostly read Marvel so forgive any ignorance regarding the characters

I'm just going to spit these out in a random fashion even though hoping to do at least an A to Z. Which ever character I'm inspired to do will pop up next

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tim Drake seems to be the guy that wanted to be Robin forever, so rather than discard his Boy Wonder image like Grayson I think he would embrace it.

I wanted this to look like the Boy Wonder and Red Robin at the same time so I took elements from all Tim's costumes.

Discarded the Red Robin cowl but used the design for the mask to differentiate him from Robin (Damian) and Nightwing.

Kept the Red Robin tunic but added the clasps and pouches on the shoulders as a Robin throwback. I also feel that it gives off a sense of leadership.

I love the Yong Justice pants, I know it's a different character but I felt it was a nice visual element and in this case served as a nod to the original Red Robin tunic while being modern.

I like the idea of him being able to glide but I couldn't bring myself to give him wings, so instead the cape is made of memory cloth.

Tim Drake, Red Robin (c) DC

Everybody always ditches the cowl. :( I like the cowl. Other than that personal preference, very nicely done.

I like it, it's simple and not too fussy (another problem with reboot look IMHO)
