WB Animation, Prop/Character Design, YOUNG JUSTICE, Dick Grayson Gotham Academy High School Mathlete photo. Pencil, Digital Color.
In the "Schooled" episode, Superboy battles the evil android Amazo, created by the mad scientist, Professor Ivo. As the battle progresses, the combatants wind up crashing through the abandoned hallways of Gotham Academy High School during the night. There, in one of the school's display cases, is a photo of young Dick Grayson as a Mathlete honoree. If you blink, you might miss it entirely. Haha! It's a detail that helps to flesh out the "reality" of the YOUNG JUSTICE world, and I was called upon to illustrate this photo, following the art style established by Lead Character Designer, Phil Bourassa. I designed the Gotham Academy crest, inspired by those used in the Harry Potter films. I'm posting it here to give everyone a better look, and, as always, these color choices are my own.
Seeing as you were one of the people behind Young Justice, I would greatly appreciate it if you would PLEASE commented on this piece I made about Cardcaptor Sakura and YJ Batman - be-the-real-me.deviantart.com/…
I noticed it the second time that I watched it. I managed to puase it in time to see the photograph properly. I expected a gymnastic or sport award, but not Mathlete! M friend and I laughed when we saw what the trophy was for.
Nice! Too bad you couldn't give him the Dick Sprang hair curls, but this is an awesome second! Plus, as a civilian I might honestly not realize that this was Robin in disguise, so those subtleties are great.
