Hello. Because of my Young Justice version of Raven, I've been getting counted comments and requests to do the other Titans in the new TV series style. For a long time I was holding back, not really interested in doing it... but I gave in today.
Pictured here are character models of the Teen Titans in the style of Phil Bourassa of the Young Justice animated series from WB Animation. I used various images from the Young Justice series as reference material, along with a lot of comic images to blend this version in with the Young Justice style.
eeeh... so I made it a week ago but I just didn't want to submit this. I'm not satisfied with this Dx
I decided to make something like a mix between the comic version and cartoon version (btw I'm not American so I'm more familiar with Teen Titans cartoon, cos' finding scans on the internet is difficult and unfortunately I can't read all of the comics D': )
btw red Gar sucks Dx
Good thing I closed the commissions, I'd be surprised if I finished them by Christmas Dx
A very rough set of doodles of some Young Justice designs for Raven and Starfire. I kinda failed in terms of imitating the actual style, but whatever. The costumes and general look was my priorty. Coming up with a costume for Starfire that didn’t make her look like a total whore took some effort, but I think it worked out okay. Might make a second pass at these and actually do proper lineart/coloring for them later…
Inspired by the Teen Titans episode "The Apprentice, Part 2". In the episode Slade forces Robin to work for him as his apprentice by threatening to kill his friends. At one point Slade mentions that in time Robin might even learn to look at him as a father figure. To which Robin replies: "I already have a father". Cue dramatic music and bats flying out into the night.
There is also a scene where Robin has to steal from Wayne Enterprises, which is of course the company owned by Bruce Wayne, aka Batman. I read an interview with the makers once where they pointed out that Slade is essentially forcing Robin to not only betray his friends but also his mentor, Batman. Robin is torn between loyalty to the man he looks up to and the villain who has the power to destroy his friends with the push of a button.
I wanted to portray the differences between what Batman and Slade have to offer. Batman's hand is stretched out in a helpful gesture, as if to lead Robin back to the right path, whereas Slade's hand is clutching a little device of death, finger hovering over the trigger.
The title of this pic is one of Slade's lines in the episode.
