Clothes Make The Man by stratosmacca Clothes Make The Man by stratosmacca
Okay, so I'm one of the most critical people on the planet when it comes to comic artists and writers messing around with Tim Drake. And lately his costume has undergone a pretty substantial change, which I was opposed to.

But I was reading through Teen Titans #34 yesterday, and I realized that the thing is actually starting to grow on me. There are still things I miss from the old costume, like the greens and Tim's distinctive Robin insignia, but overall it's not too shabby.

So I whipped up this really quick sketch yesterday after I read the issue at work, and colored it today (also while at work, heh). And this is the result. Very quick and dirty, but there you go.

Its not my favorite either, and I too miss the Robin symbol he used like a throwing star too. But, he will probably have a few more changes down the road like Nightwing did, but you nailed the look.

The thing I miss most about Tim's costume is the haircut. I think his hair got a little too long.

I agree. I loved it when it was shorter and spikier :(

I love your Robin drawings. I never liked Robin as much until Tim came around. I was iffy with the costume at first, but it gained some points when I found out why Tim chose to change it.

Being a fan of the animated series and the previous incarnations, I was seriously hating the look. It seemed too simple after what we all were used to. But after a couple months of seeing it drawn by several artists including Ed McGuiness, I have to say it's not bad.
I think I could make it a little bit better.

heh... you aren't the only one who opposed the costume change, only to find it growing on you... LIKE A FUNGUS, I TELL YOU!!! A FUNGUS!!! But I love it now. I too miss the old sharp and pointy 'R'. But this pic is VERY well done. Bravo.

I love it! I have such a soft spot for Robin. I agree with the above though. Your quick and dirty would be my masterpiece. Damn you rock.
