The Bat Family with their respective rebooted costumes.

From left to right --> Red Robin (Tim Drake), Batwoman (Kate Kane), Robin (Damian Wayne), Batman (Bruce Wayne), Nightwing (Dick Grayson), Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Red Hood (Jason Todd)
-EDIT-

For those of you upset about Cass and Steph missing, I'm sorry - I just didn't know what their costumes would look like or what their roles would be in the reboot.

I have another bat-fam picture uploaded somewhere in my gallery, but I must say, this one is a helluva lot better than that one - even if it's missing a few characters.

while I wish you had added Alfred somewhere as he's a supporting and pretty much crucial member its an amazing piece.

the other photo you were talking about, while yes that one has all the characters and is amazing too this one for me just gives the bat family a more professional and team like look. you could have added more character but how many times have we really seen EVERYONE together at once? none that I've seen. So while the effort would have been amazing in itself I think that by using the "main" characters in this piece you've shown how close the bat family works.

the details not just in shadow or color but also in costume design to me is just wonderful and to me i like the floor shadow but part of my brain says it looks weird. i got up and had to go stand by the balcony window to test the lighting because it messed with me a bit. I can see how it work but it throws my head for a loop. I think its just me though. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";P" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="454" title="Wink/Razz"/>

I wouldn't usually give critique because I have no to place to do so on art that's 1000x better then mine I felt like I should because besides Alfred which doesn't bother me that much its AMAZING. keep up the effort and never stop trying.

What Critic? Your job is absolutley gorgeous. In fact, you should ask DC for a Job. You are a talented guy, just as plain as that. The constrast of colors is well balanced, and the character desing as well. My only true complain is the face of Batwoman; I dont know how to put, but is doesnt feell right. But the rest of the Batman family is fine to me, the suits, the poses, the colors, everything is cool.

About this picture I have nothing more to say, really, I just tried to rite the 100 words minimum, nut just one more thing...

Keep the good work ^^

All of the characters I can think of in the bat-family are included in this picture which is a good thing. I like how you used reference to the new 52! I like how you put damian in the picture and giving him a tough look.

Also love how you put batman in the center of view in this picture and giving him a tough look as if he's saying 'I'm Batman' without you knowing.

The levels of the characters are acceptable but I feel that there is something wrong with Barbara's (Batgirls) posture and height. I honestly feel she should be nearly reaching the same height as Dick Grayson.

All in all Phil, you did a great job!

Really cool. While, yes, there are some people missing (like Black Bat) all the main people are here, and that's the important thing. I do love how you remembered to include Jason. Most of the Batman-related cartoons seem to forget him, so it's nice to see him included.

I would have given it more in originality, but, well, it IS a picture of the New 52 bat family, and, obviously, that's not really an original idea.

My only complaint, minor and picky as it may be, is the fact that Damian is there, and I personally hate Damian, but all in all a cool picture.

Batman emote
I personally like Nightwing in blue better...
Great picture though! I like all the different poses and how some are holding weapons and some aren't.

Damian Wayne is the worst Robin of all time. I wish DC would stop using him.

what about Batwing and The Signal :/
phil-cho's avatar
They didn’t exist when I drew this.
You know, from the preview, Red Hood looks kinda like Hellboy.

This works in so many way's. Now yes Cass and Steph are M.I.A. but it really counts that most people would love that you are trying as and artist and so far you are doing a great job with how many people are in the Bat-family in the reboot of the new 52. Keep it up man.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room
