Oh, *Jay*. *sigh* I love getting to see Jay as Robin, since sometimes it seems like no one remembers the boy he used to be before all the retcons of the 90s and 00s designed to blame the kid for his own death. *hugs the little thugamuffin* Great job on his hair, especially, and on that Robin suit.

There just isn't enough Robin-Jason art around, which is a shame. D:
Personally, I love to draw Robin II, though it's usually in justapoxition to his Red Hood persona (Judd Winick style... I'm SO biased against Morrison's Jason, it's not even fun...).

And It's exactly as you said: people seem to have forgotten that he was a *good* Robin, and a *good* boy. DC is doing a fabulous job at ruining a character that didn't just have *lots* of potential, but also had a key-role in the Batman mythos. *grumbles*
I was so excited to see him back, but... *sighs* ... I really don't like what Mirrison did to him in the B&R books.

I'm happy you liked this one. I guess I poured a lot of Pre-crisis Jay in this, didn't I? :3

Thanks for your review! :D

This has suddenly become on of my favorite Jason pieces. This is simply amazing and so incredible that it brought tears to me eyes. The emotion that piece brings out it amazing. As an avid Batman fan, Jason Todd's story is some of my favorites. This picture represents to me the innocence of young Jason that will soon be lost. And though I can't really explain in words, its beautiful. Tragic yet optimistic.

Its simply amazing is what I'm trying to say with all my rambling. Thank you for making my day!
(oh ya, and the art is beautiful too. I love the coloring!)

Thank you so much for such an heartfelt, lovely comment! :D

I'm really happy that you appreciated this piece. Jason's backstory is one of my favourites too. I tried to pour as much feelings and depth into this one as I could, and I'm glad the emotion reached the viewers!! :hugs:

^_^ Your very much welcome. I don't comment a lot but when I do I like to have something to say. And you did a very good job with the emotion I must say. Like I had said earlier I nearly cried upon seeing it. You're a fantastic artist. I felt I should tell you that.

All things previously said still stands for this version. lD I also like how you changed the "ghost"'s colors.

MGNemesi Featured By Owner May 1, 2011   General Artist
Again, thank you!!! ♥
I used red for Jason in this piece, for many reasons ... because it makes you think about blood, because he's called Red Hood now, and because red is still one of Robin's primary colours.
Robin!Jay's green in the reverse piece was a bit harder to choose. I still wanted to use one of Robin's main three colours, but I somehow refrained from using red, given the connotations listed above. Green, on the other hand, signifies spring and hope, and it seemed much too fitting not to use it. :3
